So Grateful This Week

I am so grateful this week for all of my family. Those who will be spending Thanksgiving with us and those who won’t. I love my sons, daughter-in laws, my granddaughter and grandson so very much!
I am also grateful for all of my readers of my blogs over the years. I hope that I have helped some of you just a tiny bit. Some of you have become great friends and some I just know from your comments. It’s been a wonderful almost 10 years since I started blogging. 

I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving. I pray that those of you who are traveling have a safe trip. Enjoy your families, your turkey dinners, and maybe some football. Our Buffalo Bills will be playing on Thursday so I am happy about that. 

Before I get busy preparing for company, I want to give you our party mix recipe again. Hubby made a huge pot on Saturday.

Party Mix

1 Box of Wheat Chex
1 Box of Rice Chex
1 Box of Cheerios
1 Bag of Thin Pretzel sticks
3 lbs. of Mixed Nuts( no peanuts- Hubby doesn’t like them)

2 cups of Canola oil
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp. salt (optional)
1 1/2 Tbsp. Garlic Salt

the cereals, nuts, and pretzel sticks in a large pot. Blend remaining
ingredients well. Then pour them over the dry ingredients mixing well to
ensure equal distribution. Cover and bake 1 hour at 250 degrees.
Uncover and bake for 1 hour stirring every ten minutes. Let cool and

tips: Hubby makes a double batch of sauce. He likes it better that way.
He blends the sauce in our Vitamix so that it blends really well.

What are you grateful for this week as Thanksgiving is on the horizon?

Hi Rhonda,

I am so glad you like it. Hubby has made it every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas for all the years we have been married. The leftovers are going home with my kids.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Hubby and all of your children and grandchildren.

Hi AD, this is Chris. I am grateful this year for so many things. Today I am particularly grateful that my vision is still stable. (I went to the eye dr. this morning). I am grateful for your friendship through the years and all of the things I have learned from you. Thanks for posting the chex mix recipe again. Hubby will be making some on the smoker again this year sometime between now and Christmas. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. I know we will also. 🙂

Hi Chris,

Oh, you are so sweet! Thanks for your kindness! Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family. I am sending you an e-mail when I am done here on the blog.

Happy Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for happy & healthy kids, and for our relative good health. We feel so lucky to have my parents to support us when we need time away, and that we have well paying jobs. We are incredibly blessed.

Hi AD,

I'm grateful for quality doctors and nurses. I gave birth to my son Matthew (27 weeks last September) and he's in a Seattle NICU for almost 3 months now and he will be home soon . They are real heroes who goes above and beyond for their patients and the family.

Thankful for family members that step up (no hesitations)to be there for us.

Thankful for you AD for sharing your wisdom. Reading your blog is one of my fave, it's like having a coffee with a friend during this crazy time in my life! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.


Hi Vanessa,

I am so happy that he is coming home soon. You have a lot to celebrate for Thanksgiving. I love the name Matthew. Family members are the best especially in times of crisis.

You are a friend! I am glad that The blog is there for you.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family also. Kiss Matthew for me.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am thanful for many things, and your blog is on the list. Just a quick question about freezing butter (bc I picked up a few extra from Aldi, thanks to you)…do you put the whole packages in the freezer, or wrap individal sticks in foil..?

Hi Deb,

Thanks for your kindness. I put the butter in the freezer with the carton and the sticks. Just like you bring it home from the store. I have done this for years and years. It have kept some up to a year and a half with no change in texture or taste.
