What am I making?

Ever since the friggin' coronavirus hit I've spent a LOT of time living totally alone, but I've manged to perfect my take on Chex mix. It's better for me than that stupid premade prebagged stuff you get at the so-called convenience stores. I'll share the recipe:

Rhino's Party Mix

You'll need:

2 cups corn Chex cereal
2 cups wheat Chex cereal
2 cups rice Chex cereal
3 cups Crispix cereal
1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
1/2 cup unsalted roasted almonds
1 cup Cheez-it cheese crackers
2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 stick (1/4 lb or 8 tbsp.) unsalted butter

Don't worry about brand names. I use Kroger's Rice Bitz and Corn Bitz instead of Chex, and they work just fine and are a buck and a half cheaper per box. Seasoning salt is your choice.....you can use Lawry's as a fallback, but any of the Bacon Salts will work, too. I omit the pretzel sticks since I can't find them unsalted, but if you must, add them after the mix is complete so you don't OD on salt. They're already crispy enough.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F,

Mix together all of the cereals, the cheese crackers, peanuts and almonds in a big bowl. Set it aside.

Now in a second bowl, put in the butter. Melt it in the microwave about 1minute until liquid, Add the seasoning salt, the onion powder, the garlic powder and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix it up with a wire whisk. This is your seasoning mix.

Add the seasoning mix to the bowl of cereals, crackers, and nuts. Stir it up so as to cover everything lightly. Now, pour everything out onto large baking trays or dishes, covering them with a single layer of mix. Put your trays into the oven and bake the mix in for 1 hour and ten minutes.

When you're done, you can pour all of the baked mix into a large serving bowl. It tastes great warm or cold. This recipe makes enough for a party of up to sixteen people, or will feed a Rhino happily for three days.

World's smallest camper. 4ft x 9ft, 4" thick cooler panels front, top, back, & floor. 3" on the sides. Double floor has gallon water containers between. Got 2 Chevy Gen 2 batteries, totalling 55ah, and 120v. 2 wind alternators, one 8 amp, & one 90 amp. Hitch comes off, and can be replaced with a motorcycle fork, with a HP E-bike hub. Torsion axles give me independent suspension. More then enough power for the size, only because this skewer box, is expandable. I was going to call it the Coffin Camper, but decided on "Lego Liven."

Got a WordPress account, but I haven't gone through the process of setting it up. Long story short I'm computer illiterate. Going home to Vermont soon. Got awesome nieces and nephews to help me in that department. It's sort of frustrating, because I got alot to unveil. I'd actually just prefer to show photos. "It's Safer."

I watched the movie,"Into the Wild." That has been my inspiration for more then a decade. My heart goes out to the guy that wrote it, but running one rope across the river could've gave him more chapters. Currently my design exercise leans more toward miniature mobile work bench then a camper. The real deal, and photos will come, when I relocate. The frame I'm currently using now, came off the bottom of the refrigerator box, of my truck. So the trailer will sit perfectly on the back. Gotta get this shit done, and roll out of the South!!!
