I love when my house smells like trash...

WHAT?!?! Yes! I love when my house smells like trash! That's how I know Christmas is near! Okay you all must think I'm CrAzY! And although I might be a little nutty I'm not talking about the trash that you throw away or put in a trash can (Although my mom has a large popcorn tin that is called the "Trash Can") Trash is a secret family recipe for chex mix! (Saying secret family recipe makes me think of Busch's Baked Beans... If only I had a talking dog!) It is sooooo yummy! We have it EVERY year around Christmas! Right after Thanksgiving my brother "Tom" is usually begging my mom to make it! So here's the recipe...

1 Box Rice Chex
1 Box Wheat Chex
1 Box Corn Chex
1 Bag of Pretzels
1 Box Cheerios
1 Jar of Peanuts
1 Jar of Mixed Nuts (It calls for Pecans but Mom and I like the mixed nuts better, + they are cheaper)

Mix all of that together and divide between 2 large baking dishes (I get the aluminum foil roasting pans)

Next Melt 1/4 Cup of Butter and 1/2 Cup of bacon grease
Add 1 Tbsp Savory Seasoning
3 Tbsp of Tabasco
3 Tbsp Worcheshire

Pour over Chex mix and stir! Bake at 250 for about an hour and a half stirring occasionally.

Next let cool and ENJOY! I promise this stuff is AMAZING! There is WAY too much for the hubs and me so I usually take one pan and put it in jars to give out for Christmas! I have no idea why we call it Trash... but we do! It might be because it's fun to say you're eating Trash! People really look at you like you're nuts then!

Ok so it hit me today... only 5 MORE DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS! Good thing I only have 2 more presents to buy! I still have to wrap everything but I can do it! I hope?!?!?!?! How is y'alls Christmas shopping and wrapping shaping up?!?!


  1. You are such a goof! I really thought you were loosing your mind! Well, what's left if it anyway.
    I hope you are bringing some Sarturday ;)

  2. Yum! Thanks for the recipe, looking forward to my home smelling like "trash".

    Have a wonderful holiday!

  3. That looks delicious. Much more good stuff than the regular Chex Mix.

  4. well...I am planning on doing a post here in the near future about my cabinets because they are not finished. I originally had these hideous cabinets with glass doors equipped with "fancy shmacy" brass designs and brass hardware. (gag) I just completely removed the doors, filled in the holes painted them white and painted the inside a "seaside blue" I love the color on the inside because it makes my white dishes really pop! In the future I'm going to add a pretty braided trim and some other goodies.
    Okay, you got a much longer comment then I'm sure you anticipated LOL so I'll go now!


Thank you for leaving a comment! They make my day! :-)
