November "Friendship Gift"

What to give visitors to my home during November?...hmmmmm, it was easy. My mother-in-law has a great recipe for Party Mix and it's sooo delish at this time of year! I gave out the party mix last year and will give it out again this year. Wrapped in Autumn theme cello and tied with a ribbon bow...very easy and also inexpensive!

Recipe for Mary Gibson's Party Mix:
2 cups corn chex
2 cups wheat chex
2 cups rice chex
1 - 1/2 cup nuts
2 cups broken pretzels
1/3 cup melted butter
2 tblsp. Worcestershire sauce
Garlic salt to tast

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Mix dry ingredients, blend melted butter and Worcestershire sauce, and pour over mixture. Stir all in a 13 x 9 x 2 pan. Add garlic salt and mix well. Bake one hour and stir every 15 minutes.

Lovely! I am always looking for nice things to give out when we have parties and I think I will add this to my collection of ideas! Thank you! It looks like you had a wonderful Halloween party too! You always set a beautiful table!

Well, hello there Ms. Janice! Oh, this sound like a wonderful idea and sounds so good too! I haven't had any 'mix' in some time. Hope all is well with you.
Be a sweetie,

I love homemade chex mix! What a great "friendship gift" for November.

Oh yes! I forgot to tell you that I loved your pie boxes so much to pack up leftovers that I ordered some to have on hand for Thanksgiving when our family will all be at our house -- It will be so nice for sending a full plate home with our Dad's for the next day! What a great idea!

Homemade Chex Mix is so good! It doesn't begin to compare with the packaged mix. I like that this recipe is for a manageable amount.

Very nice. The little gifts are so thoughtful and I am sure they will be appreciated by all who come by. The chex mix sound good too. What a nice fall gift!

You are so sweet to do that for your guests. And to already have it prepared for the month is awesome.

Hello!!! I just thought I'd stop by and let you know I mentioned you in my blog post for today!
This is a wonderful idea today.

What a great idea. I think I need to make some Chex Mix. Miss Janice, you are always an inspiration.

I love the way you have your monthly gifts for your guests! This recipe is tried and true...just can't go wrong and how cute all dressed up in that ribbon!

The packers come next Monday and by the end of the week, I will be in sunny Florida!

Hi Miss Janice!
Just stopping by to say hello and thank you so much for not giving up on me. I am going to do my best to start posting again. I have been up to my eyeballs in weddings, but am so blessed to be able to do what I love. Things are starting to slow down a bit (with actual events anyway), but I have much planning to do. I always love taking a quick peek to see what you have been up to. Hopefully I'll get to plan some occasions of my own in the next few weeks.
