Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit,
for anger resides in the lap of fools.
Stirred up a batch of our favorite fall snack mix… Scarecrow Crunch!
It’s really easy. No baking. Just mix it together and voila :)
4 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
4 cups tiny twist pretzels
1 bag candy corn
2 cups Reese’s pieces
2 boxes caramel popcorn (Crunch ‘n Munch)
1 box chocolate Teddy Grahams or chocolate animal crackers
Mix gently in a large bowl. Store in airtight container.
For being so simple, it sure is a pretty fall treat :)
Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend! Just popping in to give you a quick shop update.
Here’s a little collage of some fall favorites that have been restocked…
And the sweetest little model wearing her turkey hat and a cowgirl hat
This is an old favorite of ours. Not sure where the recipe originated, but we’ve been making it for at least 20 years. It tastes absolutely heavenly on a cold, windy and/or snowy day… a little bit of summer.
There are cutters made specifically to cut corn off the cob, but since it’s only a once a year task, this is what I do:
Stand the corn on the center of an angel food pan and go at it with the electric knife. Much faster than a regular knife, although it will do the job if you don’t have an electric one.
Isn’t it pretty?
Here it is, ready for the freezer containers…
FROZEN CREAM-STYLE CORN:
18 cups raw corn, cut off the cob
1/2 cup butter (butter only, no margarine :)
1 quart half and half
3/4 - 1 cup sugar
Mix ingredients in a large roaster and bake in a 300 degree oven for 1 hour. Stir every 15 minutes. Let cool and freeze in freezer containers or zipper bags.
To serve: Thaw and reheat in oven or microwave.
*The original recipe makes special note that salt should not be used, as it will make the corn tough.
