My favorite chex mix; This chex mix recipe uses coconut, almonds, and other cereals to make the best tasting chex mix you’ll ever have!
Do you drink much Kool-Aid? Me neither. I’ve never been a huge fan of the stuff. On the other hand, my kids get tired of drinking water, and I get tired of shelling out for milk and single-serving drinks. I found a sweet sale + coupon price of $.07 per packet on the Kool-Aid, so I went nuts and bought 45 packages, 5 each of 9 different flavors.
I learned something interesting by doing this. Did you know that a 13-year-old is perfectly capable of making a pitcher full of Kool-Aid, but completely incapable of cleaning up the mess? I always know when offspring #2 has been making Kool-Aid, because I find the following items on the kitchen counter:
– Empty drink packet, torn into two pieces
– Container of sugar
– Measuring Cup
– Pitcher of Kool-Aid
– Empty cup with traces of Kool-Aid in it
And so, Kool-Aid has surprisingly become a tool for teaching my son responsibility. Son: “Mom, can I make Kool-Aid?” Me: “Last time, that didn’t work out too well for me.” He is now pointing out to me that he cleaned up his mess. And I am responding by making him list every part of the mess that he believes he cleaned up.
