Strawberry Puppy Chow

I made this Chex Mix for Todd's birthday party a few weeks ago. If you like a super sweet snack, this is a recipe for you! I got several compliments on it so I guess I will be making it again soon!

    This is the shorter version.

    I wrote a long reply explaining the toilet should you have any more problems and refinishing the tub, but I lost it.
    Don't refinish the tub until you know if there is any plumbing issues behind the shower walls. If it is simply cosmetic you can refinish the tile or replace it. But you can't refinish the tub until the plumbing is okay. If it is simply cosmetic then you are okay. We had plumbing work that had to be done behind the wall.

    If you have any more issues with the toilet look at my blog. I think I explained what to do and what to buy. My father is a plumber and he knew what toilet and what ring would fit over that opening properly without any plumbing issue. Fortunately all the pipes in our bathroom were copper, not galvanized. If it is galvanized leave it alone. It may let go, it may not, but dealing with it is a can of worms. So you just wait. There are people out there that are unscrupulous. Fortunately I had my dad advising and checking with the plumbers out here. Even though he has a license in this state too, he couldn't come out to do the work because he is sick.


Thanks for stopping by! We both enjoy reading your comments. Please leave your email or a link back to your blog so we can return the love!
