my muddy buddy...

is always wondering something.  Recently, it was "what's that?" about the recipe for Chex Muddy Buddies he saw on the back of the box at my feet (yep, you read that right).  Not usually one to love cooking except for cracking the eggs (and even that's sporadic), I decided to jump on this spark of interest, and into the kitchen we went.  Wearing his apron and his fire hat sweetened the deal.

I used natural peanut butter so they'd be healthy.  Kidding!


 We measured, we poured, we stirred.


We did hit a bump in the road when the concept of the chocolate chips synthesizing with the rest of the ingredients really sunk in.   


 But I'll MISS them!

Shaking the bag was a good time, but not as much fun as seeing the MBs' appearance in his MTM--though this particular expression belongs to the cheddar popcorn off in the corner.

Yes, those are spinach leaves.  And no, he did not like them.  And yes, that is puzzle cheese.

Tomorrow, a tutorial.


  1. Well I love the photo with him where it looks like he is crying and there is one chocolate chip in the little cup. It is nice to let the children make things. I used to have a lot of fun doing that.

  2. Just stopping in to say Hi! Found you through the post from the link for the Modern Quilt guild - how's that for crazy. I'm in Naperville, but went to HS in Libertyville, and my parents are still there. I had fun looking over your blog - adding it to my reader. ~Angela

  3. I haven't had muddy buddies since college... Might have to change that this week! Mmmmm...
