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??


  4. The was great! and I had a similar experience recently – well last year – a friend’s son was over and offered to put out stuff for “muddy chez mix” and he curled his nose and asked what else we could make – lol….
    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 🙂


    1. Awwww, Thanks!!

      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. 🙂
