Winter Time Prep with a Snack and dressing ideas

Baby It's cold out there!!!!

I am not sure where you are but I can say for sure that here where I live it is cold with several inches of snow on the ground and more promised to come. So if you have to go outside for any reason it is best that you dress to say warm and safe. If possible eat a snack as it will help to fuel your body. A good snack would be something like 

7 cups CHEX cereal 
1 cup mixed nuts or peanuts 
1 cup pretzels 
3 tablespoons melted butter 
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt 
1/4 teaspoon onion salt 
2 teaspoons lemon juice 
4 teaspoons worcester sauce 
1 envelope Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix (in the salad dressing aisle) 

Combine cereal, nuts, and pretzels in a bowl and set aside.  

Stir together the remaining ingredients.  Once combined, gently stir the liquid mixture into the cereal mixture until well coated.

Pour mixture onto a jelly roll pan or 13x9 baking pan. 

Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes.  Spread of paper towels to cool and store in an airtight container.  

Now that you have the perfect winter snack you will want to grab some sunscreen to help protect our children from the bright suns ultraviolet rays. Dressing in layers will help keep us warm. Its a good idea to use enough layers so that if the top layer gets wet you can shed it and still stay warm. Cotton clothing is not the best idea as it does not keep the body very warm. Wool, denim and other fabrics is perfect for layering. Long underware, turtle necks and sweaters are perfect for layering and helping to keep you toasty warm.  Warm socks and boots are also part of the cold weather attire and to top it all off a hat will help keep the warmth in.

stay warm and enjoy!!!
