Butter Crunch

This is something we would eat every Christmas. My husband's grandmother made it every year. This is the first Christmas without her, so we made it in her memory.

Here's the recipe.

Butter Crunch

In large pan, cook:

1 cup sugar
1 cup white Karo syrup
1 lb butter

Bring to rolling boil for 10 min
- Add 2 tsp vanilla at end

In large bowl, mix:

1 box (17.5 oz) Rice Chex
1 cup coconut
2 cups pecans (halved)
1 cup sliced almonds

Mix sugar mixture with dry.
Spread out on way paper to set up.
Store in plastic zip bag.

Happy Holidays

I'm still pregnant! LOL! 40 weeks and 5 days today. My body seemed to be getting prepared last week. Unfortunately, on Brigham's 6th birthday, as well as my guess date, the entire family came down with a stomach bug. All of us except our birthday boy. What a great gift for him. That seemed to put my body on hold.

We are now down at my in laws and parents for the holidays. We had Christmas at Brent's parents house yesterday. Today we are going to my parents house.

Hope you are all having a great week.
