It's a winner ~ Puppy Chow!

I officially started my running schedule today. I look up to my husband when it comes to running. He's simply amazing. Check out a few highlights of his track career. As of March 2009, he's still the best! and of course the infamous under 4 run. (btw my husband's name is Kell.)

He started me out with 1 mile walk at a 3.0 pace. Then 1 mile run with 1st half at 4.0. Then 2nd half at 4.5. Once I finished that second mile I walked for a few minutes to cool down. Here's my proof.

I celebrated with Puppy Chow AKA Texas Snow.

My best friend Stephanie used to send us Texas Snow all the time and I figured it's about time I make some of my own. I enlisted the help of two of my sweeties.

Gathered our ingredients.

10 cups of Chex, either corn or rice
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 cups of semi sweet chips
4 cups of powdered sugar
1-2 cups of peanut M&M's (optional)

Combine butter, peanut butter, and chocolate in a saucepan.

Cook until completely melted and smooth.

Measure out your Chex.

Add chocolate mixture to Chex.

Combine well and add M&M's.

Next add powdered sugar. (I started with 2 cups but realized I really needed the full 4 cups)

Put a lid on your bowl and shake shake shake...shake your booty! hehe sorry

When well coated, chill for 1-2 hours. Then serve up with a ice cold glass of milk and enjoy!!
