"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Alice Greer


3 cups butter
cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp. garlic salt
2 tbsp. onion salt
2 tbsp. celery salt
1 box wheat chex
1 box rice chex
1 box corn chex
1 box Cheerios
1 bag pretzel sticks or small pretzels
1 jar dry roasted peanuts

Mix cereals, pretzels and nuts together. I usually divide into two large roasting pans and mix.
Melt butter and add salts and Worcestershire and mix well.
Pour liquid over dry ingredients and mix until all is well coated. You can use a spoon but sometimes it is easier to just use clean hands.
Cover with foil and cook 1 hour at 225
Uncover and bake at least another hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
I usually cook it longer and sometimes turn the temp up a little. Keep cooking and stirring until the mixture is crispy and nothing is soggy.
Allow to cool and store in airtight containers.
It will keep for several weeks. This makes a lot and I usually only do one batch per holiday season.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My mom, Barbara Wilson, taught me to make this when I was just a child. It was a family favorite for the Wilsons and has continued for the Greers. I don't add pecans because Garrett is allergic, but they add to the flavor if no one has an allergy. You could also leave off the peanuts for allergy reasons.
