Harvest Chex Mix

Nancy Eberts – Eberts Harvesting Inc.

Half way through the harvest season, there is always the “what-new-could-you-put-in-the-lunchbox” kinda of mornings…especially with the heat and long days.

I tried a “Harvest Chex mix”.

Upon my last trip to Menards, I purchased sesame sticks, bean sticks, butter braid pretzels, wheat Chex cereal, mixed nuts, toasted corn, soy nuts and discovered you can buy the Gardetto’s rye chips separately. How cool is that!

Made quite a few bags and Myron likes it so…SCORE!

On a side note, try the toasted corn as a topping for chili! Quite marvelous!

Keeping the kids busy

One of the responsibilities as a mom is to try to keep the kiddos busy at the trailer house.  Our oldest son is in the field every day but because we have enough crew members, the other two are sometimes at the trailer with me!  Every once in a while, we need to come up with a project to keep them busy….

This year the kids have been busy making slime and we’ve found a recipe that works, thanks to Jada & Kaidence of Hoffman Harvesting.  Kaidence & Tilynn had fun making slime in Kansas and so now Tilynn & Rhett are trying the recipe out and we are more than happy to share it with you:
