Peanutty Chex Squares
1/2 cup Honey (I used honey from our beekeeping friend)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
6 Cups Rice or Corn Chex
1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
1. Butter 8 or 9 inch square pan.
2. In a 3-quart saucepan, heat honey and sugar just to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
3. Stir in peanut butter. Gently stir in cereal and peanuts until evenly coated. I did a lot of folding to make sure everything was coated. Let stand one hour. For squares, cut into 6 rows by 6 rows. Store loosely covered. Enjoy!
Makes 36 squares
peace and blessings,

I've also been on the look-out for a letter "D" plaque for the photo gallery I am starting in the hallway. I bought this one at Ballard Designs as well. I think the gallery turned out very well! I still have to add some photos to the 4x6 frames and I need two more black 8x10 frames to make it complete, but this is a good start. If you look here you can see my attempt at planning the photo layout.
I also ordered a boot mat for the foyer, to keep our wet shoes in during the winter months, but it is on back-order. It was only $15.00 too.
This house is starting to feel like a home, yep, I finally said it. It's been a long haul and it's far from done, but six months later I'm finally getting it together. (I think!) Thanks for stopping by today! Peace and blessings to you!
