Feeling Fifty in Fifty

Nothing says to you “I feel old” faster than a few innocent comments from young men.

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Young Men: “Woah, Mrs B.  Did you MAKE that Chex Party Mix?”

Me:  “I did”

Young Men:  “We’ve never knew you could make it homemade!”

Me: “It’s a recipe from the olden days.”

Young Men: “Woah!”

    Chex mix is always a staple here at 906 Cherry Lane. Wait until they see you roll out a pie crust. Their eyes pop out like what’s going on??

    but great little story for the prompt. 🙂

    1. Oh, they’ve heard of it but they just thought it was made by someone at the General Mills factory. They had no idea moms all over America were making it first. : )

  5. Thanks for liking my post. I love yours! My kids were asking me to make Chex mix just this weeks because grandma does at Christmas. I read some of your older stuff too and loved it. You just found a new follower 🙂

      Chex Mix was ALWAYS a staple in my home during the holidays. Especially, Christmas. I can remember my mom making it every year. Such a treat. 🙂
