New CHOW in the house...

OKay! Haven't had a post with a recipe swap in a while - this one is something new and SO GOOD!
You know the delicious - chocolate/peanut butter

Well, here is a great twist on the recipe
- if you love LEMON - this recipe, you've got to try...

LEMON Puppy Chow

1 (12.8 oz.) box of Rice CHEX cereal
1 (12 oz.) package White Vanilla baking chips
1/4 cup Margarine
4 tsp. grated Lemon Peel
2 Tblsp. Fresh lemon juice
2 cups Powdered Sugar

Measure out the cereal into a large bowl. In a microwave bowl, melt the chips, margarine, lemon peel and juice, on high for 1 minute - stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer and stir - continue until the mixture is smooth. Pour over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Put powdered sugar in a large plastic bag - add coated cereal and shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool. Store in an airtight container! ENJOY!

So the T-Shirt Scarf making is contagious...
in the last post here - I took each of the colors of the rainbow in recycled T-shirts and made a scarf... from the same shirts - made 2 MORE "up-cycled" scarves this week. The "block" scarf is from each of the SLEEVES of the t-shirts serged together... made from 5 1/2 double-sided blocks - got this idea from Coach H from school! She's so talented - thanks Coach Harris! - you're awesome!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend... 14 days until Christmas - are you ready? I've got a confession to make -Shhhhhh! We haven't bought ONE gift... I know, I know - in 5 days, we'll have 2 weeks to rush and do some power shopping trips! Working in retail for 12 years has changed my shopping trait - I want to enjoy the season WITHOUT the commercial rush of "buy, buy, buy" - it's the time spent with family, making Christmas candy - drinking hot chocolate in front of the fireplace - things like that - those are my best memories of Christmas time!

Wishing you well and thanking you for stopping by! On to a GREAT week - hang in there! Remember to hug the ones you love the most - until next time...
