totally off-topic

Last night at this time the temperature was -25C - now it's only -5C. Looks like the forecast was right - we'll have a couple warm days before the temperature drops once again. So hopefully I'll be able to get out for my haircut and some other errands.

I got my "Nuts and Bolts" made for the Christmas snack.

Preheat oven to 275 F.

one 350 g box of Crispix
one 350 g box of Cheerios
150 – 200 g stick pretzels
Couple cups of peanuts (or mixed nuts)

Mix these ingredients together in a large roasting pan.

½ cup (one square) margarine, melted
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. garlic salt or 1 tsp. garlic powder
Tabasco sauce (about 4 or 5 drops)

Mix together well, making sure the garlic salt or power is completely dissolved.

Pour over the cereal/pretzel/nut mixture and stir well.

Bake for 30 minutes at 275F, stirring well every ten minutes.


If you can’t find Crispix, you can use Shreddies but they tend to soak up the ‘sauce’ so I prefer the Crispix.

If there are peanut allergies, you can skip the nuts or substitute cashews.

If you don’t like pretzels, you can skip them and add more peanuts.
