Annie's Giveaway

Don't forget the biggest part of school. THE SNACKS!

Part of the school year is packing lunches and making sure you have snacks handy when the kids get home from school. I don't know what time your kids eat lunch at school but our girls are eating at 11. When they get home at 3:30 they are hungry and ready for a snack. We have a pretty hard and fast rule that before you go out and play you have a snack and get your homework done. Then the rest of the evening is open to fun and games! But finding the right snacks can be hard. I love giving our kids Annie's products for their lunches or for an after school snack. I was sent some of their bunny crackers and fruit snacks. All three kids really enjoyed these! The bunny crackers are especially nice for our toddler. The crackers are just the right size for his little hands. PLUS, I can read and pronounce every item that goes into these little bunny crackers: "ORGANIC WHEAT FLOUR, EXPELLER PRESSED VEGETABLE OIL (SAFFLOWER AND/OR SUNFLOWER), SALT, CHEDDAR CHEESE (PASTEURIZED MILK, CHEESE CULTURE, SALT, ENZYMES), YEAST EXTRACT, YEAST, PAPRIKA, ANNATTO EXTRACT FOR COLOR, GROUND CELERY SEED, ONION POWDER." All of Annie's products are made with the same care. You can feel good about giving these to your kids. Annie's has an entire line up of great products to choose from including pizza, salad dressings, granola bars and more! After trying their crackers and fruit snacks, I look forward to trying other products from Annie's. Disclosure: The product(s) offered for the giveaway are free of charge, no purchase necessary.

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

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 …

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.
