    Have you tried HOT Dr. Pepper with that Chex Mix, Roger? It is scrumptuous and all the evil phosphorus is gone (and only the evil sugar remains).

    And with frosted sugar cookies . . . :rolleyes:

    I have to try that - we can get DP here now!

    I like my chex mix with tabasco sauce and cayenne pepper as part of the mix.

    We use
    4 cups of party mix (pretzels, various kinds of crackers, etc)
    1 cup Cheerios (but they are sweeter here than there)
    1 cup Shreddies (sorta like wheat chex)
    a bag of dry roasted peanuts

    The sauce:
    Worcestershire sauce
    Butter
    Garlic salt
    Seasoned salt
    Tobasco sauce
    Cayenne pepper

    YUM-YUM!!!!!

    (I burnt the first batch yesterday - had the grill on instead of the oven and had it on 250C instead of 250F - Mary caught it early and we still ate it [​IMG] )

    My mom makes a chex mix that sounds very similar. She adds pecans, almonds, pretzels and sunflower seeds.

    250C or 250F. Sounds close enough to me. Let me do the math on that.

    100C boiling = 212F boiling, so 250C is, is, is HOTTER THAN HADES :eek: :eek:

    Bad thing is I am normally a good cook. The recipe card was American (F) and our oven is european (C).

    As far as the grill v. the oven - I was just so excited about the chex mix I messed up [​IMG] .

    I drink Diet Dr. Pepper - no sugar and it doesn't taste one bit different than regular.

    PLUS, they just came out with Diet Dr. Pepper - CAFFEIN FREE!

    We are all home today and it is time to decorate for Christmas. Tonight we watch our first 'batch' of Christmas movies.

    HAGD!

    Howdy yall! Just put out my Christmas placemats! I am ready for the season!

    It finally got cool! Its 49 here, although it did get up to 74 this afternoon. My 3 year old is praying for snow. We never get snow, but I sure hope we get a little bit this year.

    I guess most folks are so sick of turkey by now, but we are having a turkey roast for lunch tomorrow! [​IMG] Thats the down part of eating with family - no leftovers!!

    Everyone have a great day at church!!

    Dr. Bob,
    I don't believe most common ovens will get that hot! :eek:
    C4K: Thank you for sharing the party mix recipe! Scripture says we have not because we ask not. Here in the Coffee house I just got something and didn't even ask! [​IMG] That's great. (Still am looking for the coffee and donuts here though.) ;) [​IMG] Hey everybody! Speaking of temperature/unit conversions, I have a site that you simply must have or check out. It is full of links, and I mean full. It has among its links some for this kind of thing. C4K, you could make use of this for your european oven. Don't know how to insert a hyperlink but go to refdesk.com. Somebody who is helpful, please teach me how I could have offered a hyperlink, and any one who wants to reciprocate, I am open to other great sites. (hmmm, might be a good topic...)

    I know about how to use the oven here (we've been here ten years) - I was just so excited about our first batch of chex mix that I didn't think about converting the temp, just turned it on 250 :eek:

    Specifics on the sauce:

    Worcestershire sauce - 2TBS
    Butter - 1/2 stick
    Garlic salt - 1 tsp
    Seasoned salt - 1 tsp
    Tobasco sauce - 1 tsp
    Cayenne pepper - 1/2 tsp

    Roger??? I thought you did your cooking on an open fire?? "Flame Kissed" Turkey!!! :D :D (with a mouth full of Turkey)

    And speakin' of the Chex Mix---every year when my sister and I would get together---we'd mix up a batch!!! We call it "Trash!"

    Well, once---we were having a Christmas "Pot Luck"---one of those Pastor/Deacon/Wives things---and we were going through the servin' line--well---there was this bowl of Chex Mix there on the table---and since Blackbird knew the "Official Name" for the mix(Trash!!) he "spoke out" and commented

    "HEY!!!! Which one of you fellas made this Trash???"

    Buddy--things got quiet!! You could have heard a pin drop!! Things "Went South" from there at that church!!!!

    Deacon Chairman to Blackbird: "Call my wife's Turkey Dressin' 'Trash!!', huh??"(meanwhile, the Chairman's wife is over there stuffin' her face with Blackbird's Cajun injected, Cajun smoked Brisket!!)

    Blackbird to Chairman: "Mister!! I call it like I see it!!!"

    Chex Mix is our big annual family squabble. Three of us like it "hot and spicy", three like it plain.

    "Somebody" always eats not only the "hot and spicy" but also digs into the plain as well.

    I don't know who would do something like that ;) .

    Possibly the world's biggest chex mix fan?

Some have their pages set not to show Quick Reply) Click on url, remove the http that is there, paste in the link and click. A second box will appear where you can put CLICK HERE or Check out this page... click again and voila!

    Roger, I think I'd stick with the plain mix, can't deal with all that hot stuff anymore!

    Morning all from wintry Wyoming. Not preaching (or going out) anywhere. Blizzard with a foot of snow and heavy winds. My brain still has sense even if my feet and legs don't. I'd probably kill myself just trying to shovel our the drive.

    So I remain homebound on a Sunday morning. Odd feeling for certain sure. Played some beuatiful Christmas music (Williamsburg Christmas) and reading the Word.

    And thankful to be snug and warm. Praying for the many in our region that are trying to get home from the long weekend. 'twill be challenging for non-handicapped drivers!

    Will stop back for some HOT 250C chex mix in a while . .

    Not here! Even tho it's only 52°, the sun is VERY warm and we were able to take the children out during Extended Session (think Children's Church for 4 year olds) in just their long shirt sleeves! None of us needed a jacket! Our new church playground doesn't have any trees and it was so nice to be outside.

    But......... I'd love a foot of snow! Put some in a box and mail it to me Dr. Bob! Dan Todd tried last year... but all I got was a post card. Must have melted before it got here. [​IMG]

    I have so many things I really need to do today but I'm really thinking of a nice nap! We had 14 children from 9:15 til 12:40. Jim picked us up some pizza for lunch. [​IMG]

    I love Chex Mix but haven't made it in years!
