GFCF Chex Mix and more...
Now that I have a box of Chex Mix I can eat I was craving some kind of Chex Mix snack. On the side of the box there is a recipe for a sweet mix that I had fun adapting for my needs.It is mighty tasty and even Satan (see post below) approves.
Put 4 cups of Chex Mix in a microwaveable bowl
Take 1 TB. Spectrum shortening and 1 TB. sugar and about 1 TB. black strap molasses and 1/2 tsp. vanilla and about 1 TB. water...microwave for about 2-3 min.
Pour mixture over Chex and then microwave for about 3 min. STIRRING after each minute. Spread out on paper towels to dry. Enjoy.
Another good find today was baking meat instead of pan frying it. I looked in the fridge and there was enough ground beef for about two patties, one pork chop, and about 6 strips of bacon. So I set the oven on 350 deg. and put the meats, salt and peppered, in pie pans and into the oven. The patties were done in about 15-20 min., but the pork items took longer, I kept checking them until cooked through.
When Satan wanted lunch I took one of the baked patties, put some of the bacon on top, and then a slice of cheese and nuked it for 30 seconds...he was in bacon cheeseburger heaven, he was thrilled.
Happy Saturday, or whatever day it is you might be reading this on.
