As a rule, I don’t like sitcoms. Sure some of the half hour, family friendly shows of my youth were great. Home improvement. Friends. Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Those shows were my jam and I sometimes still watch them unabashedly.
But the typical fare that airs on the networks these days trying to pass as comedy when they are nothing more than a laugh track and some unfunny jokes? Those aren’t for me.
That is until I turned on The Good Place. I wanted to try it because fantasy elements fascinate me and often find their way into my writing. Basically I wanted to try it because I wish I had written it. Plus, who doesn’t love Kristen Bell?
So I tried it and I laughed. Out loud. This doesn’t happen. Ever. And I kept laughing. I look forward to this show every week because it’s fresh, funny, and doesn’t rely on those sitcom conventions like a laugh track. I can decide when to laugh for myself.
While the basic premise may be a bad girl who gets into the good place, the characters are all likeable and the message of the show is stellar. Life is about doing the best we can when we can. It’s never too late to change who we are into who we want to be.
And while I watch my new favorite show and the only sitcom on my TiVo, I need a snack. Enter Under the Sea Snack Mix. This versatile, sweet and salty, totally addictive treat is perfect for a party or just chilling in front of the TV. Plus, it will technically last a good week … not that I think it will hang around that long.
We’re all about using up Halloween candy this Sunday Supper, so I added Reese’s Pieces, some white peanut butter cups (which have no chocolate – hooray!), and some white chocolate candy corn candy bars (again no actual chocolate), but add whatever it is you have on hand. I think candy corn or any chocolate candy bar would be great.
Then I took a bag of Goldfish to add that salty vibe and a box of Finding Dory cereal and added them to the party. They are the real stars here. I had never made a Puppy Chow style mix with a cereal with marshmallows but it certainly won’t be my last. Those marshmallows stay a little crunchy and totally bring the flavor.
I don’t know about you, but I think we could all use some more laughter and snack mix in our lives.
- Place peanut butter and white chocolate chips in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave an additional 30 seconds. Stir until all the chips are fully melted. Add the cereal and Goldfish and stir until fully coated. Add the candy, Reese’s Pieces, and confectioners’ sugar. Stir until fully coated.
- Allow snack mix to set for about 30 minutes. Serve or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
