Double Checks, and Chex
It’s the party mix time of year … and I’ve been testing out some of the great ideas on the back of our Chex boxes with a few minor changes for my family:
GLUTEN & DAIRY FREE – CHEX HONEY NUT CHERRY CRUNCH (or cranberry, or cran-orange)
4.5 cups of Honey Nut Chex
4.5 cups or Rice Chex
2 cups of Raw Cashews
1/4 cup Organic Brown sugar or Sucanat
1/4 cup butter or non-dairy organic substitute
1/4 cup pure honey
1 tsp. salt
1 cup dried fruit (I used Trader Joes dried Cranberries)
1/4 cup raw sesame seeds
Set oven to 400 degrees. In a large roaster I tossed the nuts and cereal. In a pan on the stove, I combined sugar, butter, honey and salt. After melted and smooth, I poured over cereal mixture and stirred until evenly coated. I placed the open pan in the oven – stirring every 3-5 minutes for 12-15 minutes.
Spread on wax paper to cool and store in an air tight container. I made this and the next day – it was gone. My husband asked me not to make it again for a few days – as he over ate it. The next one I’m going to try is Chex Pumpkin Pie Crunch. YUM!
Also, a short update on my biopsy that is still in Chicago awaiting it’s second reading from my endoscopy in April… A call back yesterday informed me that they are awaiting another expert to double check “something” and is in a holding place until then. The nurse said they see something that is conflicting with the original report. (Hmmmm) Hopefully I will hear more next week. Because really… what’s ANOTHER week – at this point? 😉
“But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”
