Day 24: November 24, 2013

Chex Mix

I know for many this popular snack is a tradition for the holiday season, but I don't believe I have ever made the original recipe before.  My mom did when I was little, circa 1968 and even at that time I knew I loved it because of the butter and salt and not necessarily because of the crunchy cereal. 

This afternoon I most definitely had a craving for butter and worscestershire, with a splash of hot sauce, and the Chex provided the perfect vehicle to curb that craving.  I added a few almonds,  so I could pretend there was something healthy included in this dinner substitute, and then proceeded to eat a bowl of the delicious decadence.

Perhaps we will add this to the ever-growing list of Totoro traditional holiday foods...
