What to eat Wednesday

Luke has some of the cutest little girl friends.

He was invited to one of their birthday parties this last weekend. I took Luke and then stayed because it was a swim party.
I helped myself to some of the snacks. I bit into a pretzel that had some kind of seasoning on it, and wanted to just lick my fingers, the pretzel, and the plate. I was glad when Luke said he was finished with his plate, because there were several more pretzels left.

The mom Tiffany, was kind and thoughtful enough to remember to send me the recipe the next day. I am sure I would have forgotten and then remembered a couple of weeks later. I was so glad to get the recipe and I made them right away!

Most of the family loves them. Except Tuck, he says they are too "spice me."

Spice Pretzels
2 lbs. pretzels
1 T. lemon pepper
1 T. garlic powder
1-2 T. cayenne pepper (I used red chili powder)
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
1 1/2 c. vegetable oil

Mix lemon pepper, garlic powder, pepper, and dressing mix in a bowl. Add vegetable oil and mix well. Put pretzels in a plastic bag and pour oil mixture over them. Shake until all pretzels are coated. Spread pretzels on waxed paper and let dry for at least one hour.

I know I should probably be commenting on the food (yum), but that photo of the finished product is worthy of the Pioneer Woman herself. Good job!
