Slap That Hand

I made Chex Mix today, and when Cory came up from the basement and saw it, he was ready to dig in. I had to 'slap' his hand away because, if he gets started eating it, there won't be any left for the rest of us. We can't have that, can we?

I had to search for the Chex Mix recipe online (gotta love the Internet!) and the first one I found only gave microwave directions. I suppose it would be fine, but I just think things taste better cooked in the oven. So I finally found the right recipe. Instead of mixed nuts, I use party peanuts (the kind with no skins) and instead of bagel chips I use Cheerios. Did the 'original' Chex Mix recipe have bagel chips? I certainly don't remember that.

Anyway, one batch of Chex Mix made, cooled, and containered. I will just have to give Cory a little bit at a time if I want to have any for myself.
