At a friend’s house this evening, Grace discovered that she likes Chex Mix.
I’ve never been a fan, so she didn’t have to worry about me nibbling from her bowl.
I wonder if that was part of its charm.
At any rate, I poured Grace a bowl of Chex Mix (the premade kind, in a bag), and she immediately picked out all of the Chex and left the pretzels and crackers behind. My like these little crunchy things, Momma. I told her that they’re a kind of cereal, and that you can eat with milk or as a snack. Can my have more of the little crunchy things? Have you ever tried explaining Why not? to a 2-1/2-year-old who wants you to pick the cereal bits out of a friend’s bag of Chex Mix? It doesn’t compute. My want more little crunchy things. She was begging for a healthy food. No sugar involved. How often does that happen? When we got home, I looked up the recipe for Chex Mix, tweaked it, and I gave Joe a shopping list.
If you want to read the original Chex Mix recipe, you can visit General Mills’ website.
