No School Days 

What is it with kids? On days they have school they don’t want to wake up, on weekends they are suddenly morning people and on no-school days they are crack of dawn go getters. Today is one of those no school days. It’s Monday. My coffee pot is almost empty and it’s only 8:15. All three of my cherubs are bright-eyed and ready to take on the world. And I’m over here writing a post because I’m not ready for direct social interaction. #coffeehasnotkickedin #enterkitchenatownrisk 

So now my to-do list starts early:

  • Call Mom- nope too early 
  • Call Oma – nope too early 
  • Ugh my list is already off schedule!!! 
  • Start laundry ✔️ (well load 1 of 362572 to do today) 
  • Make nuts and bolts ✔️
  • I don’t even know what to do next because I haven’t checked off the first two options on my list 

Also with no school days – all of the sudden my kids get all artsy and want to make all the crafts – however they do not want to clean up all the crafts 😡. In fact they don’t want to clean anything. Any suggestion to push dirty laundry into the the hallway, sweep floors, vacuuming or any other household chore is met with blank stares. You know the “if I pretend not to know what mom is suggesting I won’t have to do it”. Nice try kids. 

But all in all we will get some things accomplished today (hopefully). Just let me put another pot of coffee on….. 

Grandma B’s Nuts & Bolts

  • 1 box Cheerios
  • 1 box Chex (or Shreddies)
  • 1 bag pretzels
  • 1 bag peanuts (optional) 
  • 2 bags Bugles (not-optional) 
  • 1/2 lb butter 
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt 
  • 1/2 tsp onion salt 
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt

Mix dry ingredients in roaster. Melt butter and stir in seasonings. Pour over dry mixture. Stir and roast in oven at 200°F for 2-3 hours. Shake or stir occasionally. You can add other favourite munchies if you wish!
