Given due consideration.
I tend to be intentional with our Thanksgiving celebration.
Poor Thanksgiving. Crammed in betwixt two MASSIVE holidays.
We don’t celebrate Halloween. But it seems to be very popular without us ;) No less than 8 aisles of Halloween related goodies at the Walmart, even more at the Target – REALLY America??
Now that the big day is over, the Halloween merchandise has been replaced with…
Approximately 97 aisles of CHRISTMAS!
Thanksgiving has gone missing.
If we look hard enough, it’s still there.
Inviting us to slow down and prepare our hearts to be grateful. To instill thankfulness into our lives.
One of the ways we are purposeful about Thanksgiving is to haul out a few recipes that we ONLY prepare at Thanksgiving. It deserves a few traditions all to itself.
Here is one of these. These delightfully crispy morsels were originally a Paula Deen recipe. Paula Deen + recipe = yummy! (There’s your math for the day. Bonus).
Ritzy Ritz Bits
- 2 (10 1/2-ounce) boxes Ritz Cheese Bits, not peanut butter flavor
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 (1-ounce) package ranch salad dressing mix
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Place the crackers in a large sealable container. In a bowl, mix the oil, salad dressing mix and garlic powder. Pour this mixture over the crackers, cover the container, and gently invert it to coat the crackers with seasoning. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours, turning the container every so often to keep the crackers coated. Let the mixture come to room temperature before serving. Store in the covered container in refrigerator.
