Food Addictions

While on the subject of additions.....I have, in the past, been a self confessed trashaholic. No, that does not mean I am a dumpster diver although I have been known to lurk around a dumpster I have not yet been tempted to dive in.

Back to food....a trash-a-holic is someone who loves "trash" otherwise known as Chex Party Mix. My hubby (don't you love that 50'd word) makes the world's best trash....lots of real South Carolina pecans (none of those artificial nuts for us). I have been known to eat my way through a gallon a day.
Our son (guess which one) had his Dad make him a full batch (six times what is shown in the photo above) to take to Taiwan when he went on a mission trip a few years back. His plan was to just eat trash instead of risking eating Tai food that might include eels or guts or some other unknown quantity. Great plan, huh? Except he ate it all on the 17 hour plane trip over there.
On with my mother-in-law, Cathrine the Great, entered a local recipe contest a few weeks ago. She came home with the blue ribbon for her lemon meringue AND (pay attention here) a sample of Cranberry Snack Mix. Oh my was BETTER than the original TRASH I'd been gobbling....I mean snacking on. I have a new addiction....that is how an addictive personality works, folks!

Family HOLD Back until I get there tomorrow to chow down on some trash!
Last night at a party a friend made something called "puppy chow" and let me tell you, I will never look at a rice chex the same way again. Two layers of chocolate, powdered sugar, peanut butter. What is not to like?
I could have eaten 17 pounds of it. I showed restraint though. Amazingly!
I am looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Oh, and feeding my genetic food addiction. Tis the season!
Tell Dad to hide me a bag somewhere, I do not trust you to restrain yourself!

You didn't promise me any fruitcake cookies----I was just being hopefully optimistic!
