Pan seared B/S chicken breasts (seasoned with ground roasted garlic sea salt, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, ground peppercorns & ground red pepper flakes) then finished in the oven, oven roasted Brussels sprouts (tossed with EVOO, grapeseed oil, sea salt, ground peppercorns & thyme), scalloped potatoes (potatoes sliced thin on mandolin slicer, thin sliced onion, sliced mushroom caps, butter, sea salt, ground peppercorns, ground dry porcini mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup & heavy cream) and natural au jus pan juices (chicken pan deglazed with a small amount of water and tasted fantastic!).



Scalloped potatoes

Thin sliced onion & sliced mushroom caps seasoned with sea salt, ground peppercorns then sautéed in butter till soft. A can of undiluted cream of mushroom soup, 1 TBSP ground dry porcini mushrooms & 1 cup heavy cream added to mushrooms and mixed well. Potatoes thin sliced on mandolin slicer and tossed well with sauce. Potatoes baked in oven till tender.

We had a quick, scrambled omelette with cheese and scallions. DH had toast; I had RyVita. I was going to do a stir fry with sliced rib steak, but the hubster wasn't in the mood for that. So, I will probably be having rib steak as a midnight snack. If I don't finish it, I'll have steak sandwich tomorrow

I made Chicken Thighs with Sweet and Yukon Gold Potatoes with Fennel baked in my Clay Pot. It seemed to take forever to cook. When the turkey thighs were done the potatoes were still too hard so I had to take the turkey out and put the potatoes back in to cook for another 40 minutes. Maybe I need to use a higher temperature when using the clay pot. I never had that trouble before but there was a lot crammed into the clay pot. I was using my convection oven.

I was out all day and then had a bunch of baking to get done (for a banquet I am coordinating for our youth group on Friday and for Dad's cleaning ladies as this will be the last time they are here before Christmas) so I resorted to some of the very few items of prepared food I keep around for emergencies. I did a veal cordon Swiss for Dad and a Monte Cristo chicken for me. They are good, but I do prefer to make them.

I also put a ham bone in one of my crockpots to cook overnight and tomorrow I will remove the bone and add split peas, the meat from the bones, onion and seasonings for some pea soup for tomorrow's dinner.

The snack mix is excellent. I copied, pasted and printed your recipe and made notes of what I did and didn't do. This batch was ready about 1-1/2 hours. I forgot the seasoning blend until I had been cooking it for an hour, but no harm done and very little left in the pan. I took a bowl for myself, but had to put half of it back or I would still be eating it. I noticed they (WalMart) had honey roasted peanuts for the same price/size, but got the regular dry roasted instead. I think next time I'll use the honey roasted. I really love sweet/savory combos.

I'll probably make up some sandwich size baggies for neighbors, just so I can use this batch up and make more adding raisins and craisins and honey roasted peanuts next time.

Thanks for the inspiration. I've been wanting to do this for some time as I had all those cereals, but kept putting off trying it because it bothered me to be adding all that butter/oil so as not to get it soggy, but I used a measuring cup and drizzled, stirred, drizzled, stirred until it was all mixed in and then cooked, stirred, cooked, stirred until everything was crisp again. Your post was the last straw, I just HAD to try it.
