off season fridays

the thing about living in a town that has an incredible summer festival season and a ski season that averages 300+ inches is that when "off season" hits I am so ready for it. I love the quiet days and Fridays spend at home watching bad tv and occasionally a good video like this:

Yup, it's hard work living in a town like Telluride and it makes me appreciate a good quiet Friday night at home.

Tonight I made a quick version of the puppy chow from chex mix. Tonight I mixed up the puppy chow and used some Rice Chex and some EnviroKidz Leaping Lemurs which are peanut butter and chocolate balls. I did like the cereal but found them a bit hard. Yes, I like kids cereal more then grownup cereal- I've always had a sweet tooth.

This came from the Chex Box... more can be found here
In mirowaveable mixing bowl combine 1 cup chocolate bits or chips, 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup butter and mirowave on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds and add 1 teaspoon vanilla and stir quickly until smooth.

Add in 8 cups of your favorite gluten free cereal and fold into the mix.

In large bowl place a cuo of powdered sugar  then add part of the chocolate covered cereal. Coat well and add more powdered sugar as needed.
Spread onto wax paper to dry. Add in M&M's for some color and added sugar rush. Enjoy along with some cheesy tv on a quiet night at home.

It's a great piece that was done for the area. I first saw it at Mountainfilm in May and loved it.
Hope you had a good time on the hill last weekend!
