"I'm controlling. Controlist isn't a word."

Coach Beiste: You're all coffee and no omelet.
Sue: That doesn't make any sense.
A little Glee-cap of tonight's season premiere: 
What's with the crack about folks not liking Mr. Shu rapping?  I thoroughly enjoy it--you should see me groove to Gold Digger or Bust A Move while I'm running.  New tough gal Coach Beiste makes her debut, stealing the spotlight and some much needed funding from other school programs, much to the chagrin of Shu and Sue, who briefly join forces to take her down.  Finn and Rachel are happy, but we're sure that won't last long.  WHERE'S EMMA??  Puck got a vasectomy, Quinn's back on the Cheerios, Santana got a boob job, Tina and Mike are dating, and tryouts prove to be a non-event.  The two song highlights of the evening for me were "Billionare" and "Empire State of Mind"... adding them to the Shuffle as we speak.  Full (and amusing) recap here.

Lindsay, Doug and I celebrated the return of our favorite show choir in style, with Slurpees from the 7-11 down the hill, soft pretzels with salsa cheese dip (recipe next week!) and a giant tray of Puppy Chow.  Crispix, peanut butter, chocolate, powdered sugar... it's win-win-win-win situation.

Puppy Chow
You'll need:
  • 6 cups Crispix cereal
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 12 oz. milk chocolate chips
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
This'll bring out the "Beiste" in anyone!  Melt butter, peanut butter, and chocolate chips together on low on the stove or in the microwave.  Watch carefully if you do it on the stove--the recipe won't work if it gets scorched.  Stir in the cereal GENTLY.  Put powdered sugar in a large paper grocery sack; pour the cereal mixture in and shake until well coated.  Spread out and cool on wax paper before storing (ha ha... like any of this will make it to storage!).  Get your "juicy, vine-ripened chest fruit" out there and start cookin'. :)
