Day 6- Homemade Hamburger Helper

Now this one was more work and took me two This is a quick cooking crockpot meal and really would be just as simple on the stove top. The main benefit I found with this is that there is not a danger of boil over and my children could not get burnt on the stove top. Through trial and error I also learned in a crockpot you can in fact have to much liquid when cooking pasta.It really was not pretty :OP Here is what you will need:

1 Pound Ground meat(cooked)
1 box Pasta noodles
1 Can Cheese Soup
2 Cans of hot water
1 Can of milk
2 Tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup mozzarella
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese

To start mix together hot water and soup in your crockpot. The soup can be hard to blend together so try to mix it pretty well. Add in milk, meat, and butter and mix well. Then put in the noodles it will seem like there is not enough liquid and won't really mix DO NOT ADD MORE LIQUID or you will have a big pile of mush lol. Tomorrow I will be posting what I created with my big pile of mush :O) Sprinkle your cheeses on the top and cook on high for about 2 hours. If you are around DO NOT STIR it doesn't help the not mushing
This meal was really good once I got it right and now that it is right I hope you and your family enjoy this meal as well. I am going to try it with taco seasoning mix in as a variation.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
