Crock Pot Rice Casserole

I really had no idea what I was going to make for dinner I am trying hard to use up all those things in my pantry and fridge that get shoved to the back all the time. So I started throwing stuff together.lol Not really the best method but it what I was going with. :OP Here is what I ended up with:

1 & 1/2 cups Brown Rice
1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Cup Dried Black Beans(or 1 can of Black Beans)
1 Cup Dried Kidney Beans(or 1 can of Kidney Beans)
2 Cups of Peas
2 Cups of Corn
4 Cans of Water
2 Cups of Shredded Chicken

I started by boiling my beans for about 30 minutes then rinsing well. I was hoping to avoid the black coloring from the black beans. Then I put everything but the peas and corn into the crockpot and turned it on. If you are going to cook it all day use low! If you want it in a couple hours use high! this was my biggest mistake.lol about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve add the peas and corn to the crockpot and mix them in. I served with corn bread and topped with a little Worcestershire sauce. Now I will point out this makes A LOT of food probably enough for 6+ adults.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
