spicy pretzel recipe

Spicy Pretzels

1 cup vegetable oil
1 package dry ranch dressing
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 bag of pretzels ( I use the smaller kind. And it is the one pound bags)

Mix together all ingredients except pretzels. This will take a while to get it dissolved good.
Put the pretzels in a paper bag and pour the mixture over the pretzels. Close the bag and shake until well coated. Lay on a cookie sheet or on paper for 30-45 minutes. Store in airtight container.

I have seen some recipes where you place it on a cookie sheet and bake, uncovered at 200 degrees but I like the way it is without the baking.

This is a recipe to make and share with friends!!!!

What would you do if you were sitting there trying to do homework?????
And Sasha was staring at you like this???? I had to cuddle with her a little bit and then had to get back to doing homework. So she decided that there was no way she was going to let me do homework. So then this is where she ended up...... She is laying between the arm of the couch and myself, sitting with my laptop on the couch. It is difficult to do the homework with her lying like that.
This is where Roxy ended up.

She is on the other couch and she doesn't bother me most of the time. If she isn't laying like the above picture, she is stretched out. I know that it looks uncomfortable but she seems to like it. It is hard to do my homework when the adorable girls are wanting my attention!

And everyone wonders why we have waited to have kids???? The dark brown eyes looking at me over the book is bad enough, imagine if they could do more than look and bark at me???? Like actually speaking? That would just absolutely rock my world and make it impossible to complete. So now back to the homework.... If I can manage to stop Sasha from looking at me!

First Tournament of 2010

This is what my husband is doing to day. I am at home doing homework and will go to watch the weigh-in in a couple of hours. I am so proud of him for striving to continue to do what he loves. In fact, I am somewhat jealous right now since I am stuck, inside, doing homework. But it will all pay off in the end. Hopefully this tournament will be a good one for them!
