Since we had wind and snow the last couple of days and we were blanketed in with fifteen inches of snow, I made some snacks yesterday. And I enjoyed a relaxed, cozy day looking out the window at the snow and being very thankful I could stay inside my warm house. And I was thankful for moisture presenting itself to our dry plains.
My kiddos and my man ventured out some.
Renae and Tucker had a great time exploring, digging snow forts, and jumping into drifts. Cooper explored too, but his little owners soon tucked him into the garage with his heat lamp.
Matthew got to be the one to walk/wade across the field to the farm and check and feed his brother’s cows. Then he brought the tractor back and drove up and down the lane so there would be a track and so his pick-up could actually get out of the lane. We’re thankful not to have a lot of livestock when this kind of weather shows itself.
I had Chex cereal on my pantry shelf, so I made sweet and salty snacks with it. I made Crockpot Party Mix and I made Puppy Chow or Muddy Buddies. Whichever name you prefer.
I’m sharing the Crockpot Party Mix recipe with you today. It is simple and easy. I like to use Cheerios in my party mix and when I “bake” it in the crockpot, they don’t shrink up like I’ve had them do in the microwave or oven.
Something salty, something sweet, Yummy snacks and tasty treats!
What is your favorite way to spend a snow day?
Inside or outside?!
