Laptop Lunches Giveaway

Whew here is another great giveaway from Mudpies and Tiaras! Are you ready for school yet??



If you like Bento boxes, flat rate shipping and all things eco-friendly, then stay tuned for an awesome review and giveaway from Laptop Lunches. I have heard all about Bento boxes but have never owned one before. Laptop Lunches allowed me to select one of their boxes to try out. I tried the Black/Avo.
It just so happened my oldest daughter had a day camp to attend and I was able to pack her a lunch. This was my first ever attempt at a Bento lunch. I packed her some spinach, crunchy noodles for topping, a small treat and then packed some mandarin oranges and blackberries. I was able to use the skinny compartment on the right side for a small fork and a cloth napkin. I was so pleased with how it turned out! I realize my meal was probably not a typical Bento meal but it was still neat! And best of all was her reaction. She opened it at lunch and all her friends were like "What is that???" She said, "My Mommy writes a blog and this is my new Bento Box from laptop lunches." She then launched into a description of Bento boxes and why this was eco-friendly and much healthier than their lunches (whoops LOL!). She truly loved it! I can tell we will need to order a second one for our other daughter. Laptop Lunches carries a variety of colors for their Bento boxes as well as carriers, totes, utensils and more!

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.
