Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

Puppy Chow

I haven't done so hot posting ideas for Megan's reception menu as promised . . .

. . . I have been busy dating my husband!

We are heading down to church camp tonight to say hi to the kids, and then we are headed to Carl and Peggy's secluded cabin hide-away.

Well, that's not what Carl calls it. He calls it his hunting cabin.

I would hunt too if I had a cabin like this.

But for Brian and I - tonight it is a secluded cabin hide-away.

Before heading to the cabin, like I said, we are stopping by camp to see the kids and bring much needed supplies from the outside world to some of our church family who are counseling there this week.

And because I love each and every one of them SOOOOO much . . .

. . . I am making TWO batches of puppy chow to take down with us!!!!

9 cups Toasted Rice Cereal (I use Walmart Rice Chex)
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (smooth)
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Pour cereal into large bowl.

Melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and margarine in a glass bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth, microwaving longer if needed.

Stir in vanilla.

Pour over cereal. Stir gently until well coated.

Transfer to large plastic bowl with lid. Sprinkle powdered sugar over warm mixture. Put lid on bowl and shake well to coat.

Try not to eat it all before getting it to camp.

Love Me
