Rice and Corn Chex
Writing is hard work. Needs energy. In this way it is just like Programming. Both at the Computer. So when I am Writing or Programming, I need something to give me energy to allow me to stay at the Computer. For this, I have a special recipe. It's a Chex Mix For Writers and Programmers. Here 'tis:
1 box Chex cereal (Rice flavor)
1 box Chex cereal (Corn flavor)
1 can Party Nuts (generic OK)
1 small bag tiny pretzels
1 small bag Cheetos
1 small bag Fritos
6 Tablespoons margarine (Blue Bonnet, etc)
2 Tablespoons Worstershire sauce
1.5 Teaspoons Lawry's salt
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
.5 Teaspoon onion powder
Get a big bowl. Mix up the cereals, nuts, pretzels, and chips. Use platic tongs. Make sure bowl is not made of metal. Now in small container microwave the margarine until it's all melted (usually under a minute); careful not to splash. Take out and add all seasonings. Mix well with teaspoon or tablespoon. Pour over the mix in the big bowl. Now pick up tongs again and mix, mix, mix. Place big bowl in microwave and Nuke for 2 minutes. Take out and mix, mix, mix. Nuke again for 2 minutes. Mix, mix, mix. Nuke one last time (2 minutes). Take out, dump whole bowl on cookie sheets or wax paper (you chose). When cool, place in nice plastic tubs or containers you reuse from other things (margarine tub, pretzel jugs, Pringles, etc). Keep containers handy near the Computer for snack to keep going, late night or anytime. YUM!
Put in cereal bowls for Party (Holidaze, etc).
Also, some good sample Containers to keep it in:
Good for near Computer, in Kitchen, around the house, etc. Bring it to work for Lunch/Snack. Lots of good ideas. Be creative!
