Cracker Recipe BUT First Things First

I did it!!!

My new dish cloth!!!
I can't believe that I finished it!

You can find the pattern Here!
Thank you Polly for teaching me how to make this chrysanthemum dish cloth!
I am ready to start another one and see if I can do it again!!!

Here are the ingredients for the cracker recipe.
1 1/2 cup of Canola oil
Box of crackers
Package of Ranch dressing mix
1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes

The sweet lady that shared this recipe at the crochet class said that she uses a pickle jar.
I didn't have one but used what I had.

Mix oil, red pepper flakes, & ranch dressing mix together.

Then pour over crackers.

Turn your jar on the side and then every 30 minutes or so turn a different way.
Up, upside down, sideways, etc.
This is so the oil distrubutes evenly.

I let mine sit in the jar with the oil overnight.
Then I removed the crackers and put in another jar.
You would think the crackers would be soft and oily but
they are crisp and dry.

The crackers are delicious!
Next time I will add a little more red pepper.
Crackers with a twist!

I served this layered salad with the crackers
one night when we had friends over.
They loved them as much as we did.
TODAY I AM THANKFUL FOR.......challenges (like my new dish cloth)!

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

I've seen that done with oyster crackers but never regular saltines. I'll have to give it a try. Now, can you share the layered dip recipe? pretty please?

Val. Love your new dishcloth. Now I had a hard enough time using the plain one, don't know if I would ever want to wash a nasty pan with that one... to pretty
Will definitely try the cracker recipe. As I was reading I was thinking soggy, but you answered my question as I read on. Thanks for sharing.Have a great weekend.

Val I've made those crackers several times and we love them too. I use a rubbermaid type container with a tight fitting lid and that works great. I love your crocheted dish cloth. I'm going to bookmark that pattern so one of these cold winter days I can give it a try. blessings, marlene

Wow, are you ever doing well with your crocheting! I love your new dishcloth - so bright and cheery. I'll have to try your cracker recipe one of these days. It looks intriguing. Enjoy your day!

Lola said...

I knew you could do it. Congrats. It sure is pretty. I for sure must make some.
I will try the crackers too. They sound very good.

I saw a pattern for this one online. I've decided to make dish cloths for my club members for Christmas. I'm the President this year and the next two years it looks like. We have around 25 members. I've made 10 so far. I have been doing most of them in the Granny Square pattern. It seems to be the quickest for me. I love the variegated thread.
Yours is lovely. You've really improved on your crochet since you started.
I saw some of these crackers at our pillowcase workshop but I didn't try any.

I love the dishcloth! Great job.

PEA said...

Oh my goodness, Val, that dishcloth is absolutely adorable, I've never seen one made like that!! It's gorgeous!

Thank you so much for the cracker recipe, I will copy it down and will give it a try. They do sound delicious and I, too, would have thought that they would be soggy instead of crisp! lol

I'm finally back to visiting after my 5 days away to the Elvis Festival. Always takes me a week to recover after a trip! xoxo
