Cheeseandrice! I was Stumbling, as I often do when laying in bed before falling asleep, and I came across THIS recipe. Puppy Chow, to me, is something I definitely enjoy when it's sitting on a table at a party or during the holidays, but not something I would think to make - until now.
Tomorrow there will be a fresh batch of Puppy Chow in the Jackson household to get us through this weekend. Yum.
