Hi there! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
We are currently trying to "finish" our basement and we're at the drywall-ing stage. Hubby needed some kid-free time to get it done so my mother and I took the three kids for a little camping trip in conjunction with her family's annual family reunion.
Here are a few pics I snapped during some of the action:
It really is wonderful to spend some time outdoors reconnecting with my rather large extended family. My mom is one of 9 children and each branch of the family tree has extended by at least 2 generations. That's the makings of one REALLY BIG reunion.
Food always plays a large role in the festivities (doesn't it in every family??) so everyone does his or her part to bring drinks, munchies and meal food for the whole weekend.
For the last few years I have brought this yummy snack mix-
The kids LOVE it - and the adults fight over it!! It is really THAT good.
It's fairly easy to make, too.
6 cups cereal 6 cups popcorn 1 cup peanuts
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
250 grams marshmallows
|Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place peanut butter and butter in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH 1 min.; stir. Add marshmallows; microwave 1 min. or until marshmallows are puffed; stir until well blended. Add cereal, popcorn, and peanuts; mix well.|
|Spread evenly into two greased 15x10x3/4-inch baking pans.|
|Bake 10 min. Cool completely. Break into small pieces.|
Oh yeah! Check this out!
Mmmmm....Could you enjoy this?
Honestly - I put it out on the table at about 2:45 in the afternoon, news spread how good it was, and the huge double batch I had made was GONE by 3pm!!
Give it a try! You'll not be disappointed!!
