We are on the way home from Keegan’s hockey game. It was a nail biter. My voice is hoarse from yelling & I don’t normally yell at the games other than an occasional “Go Stars”.
This game was brutal… And the ref-ing was pretty horrible. It was the first time I didn’t want my son to get on the ice.
There was one point where the opposing team had 4 players in the penalty box and only three on the bench.
One of our kids (13-15 year olds), was ganged up on by three players from the other team, one of the players was holding his stick and jabbing it in our boy’s back (which is illegal). Finally our player got ticked and threw a punch. It was a brawl 3-1… And our player was thrown out of the game. You have got to be kidding me!
I do not condone hitting at all, but it was frustrating to watch the refs just stand there.
The intensity of the game is controlled by the refs and what they allow. It was not a good scene.
Well enough ranting & raving! Earlier today, Tom made a huge batch of our traditional Thanksgiving Caramel Chex Mix. I promised to share the recipe with you! My cousin Mia shared this awesome recipe with me years ago!
6 – 8 cups Chex Mix (we use corn & rice)
2 cups pecans
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
(we always make 6-8 batches)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the Chex mix & pecans in a large bowl. Set aside.
Add the butter & brown sugar to a pan and melt stirring frequently. Slowly bring to a boil and allow to boil for two minutes while stirring. Pour the boiling mixture over the pecans/Chex mix with care. Stir well & spread on a baking sheet. Place in oven & bake stirring every 5 minutes for approximately 20-25 minutes. Cool & serve! You are going to be so popular!
(We usually make 6-8 batches at one time.)
I hope you enjoy the recipe! Have a fantastic Saturday! 🙂 Kris
