Keeping Cool This Summer With Ice Cream

This summer has been nothing short of hot for most of the country. I know I have complained on the blog more then once about the heat :OP. I have to say there is no better way to stay cool then to have a nice frozen treat! Recently I was given a chance to review many great products from the Unilever Ice Cream products. Recently we were sent 5 coupons to select some of their newest products to try. Honestly I guess I never knew so many existed! We had gotten caught in the otter pop habit so long we hadn't ventured down to the frozen treat isle.
The kids of course selected New AirHeads popsicles, I was hoping to try the new Yosicles but they were out :O( so I guess I can assume they are My husband picked his favorite Breyers Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream. I always try to get him to try something new but he tends to stick with his favorite. When I though of Klondike products to buy I would have never thought of the Chocolate Choco Taco, let me tell you that was the best choice I made that day! I love that you get a bite of cone with every bite you take, and well sometimes you can just never get enough chocolate. Mmmmmm......
Enjoying an Airheads Popsicle

Here is a little know fact :O) and one you probably don't care about, but my favorite candy is a York Peppermint Patty. I was so excited when I found out Good Humor made an ice cream that tasted JUST like them! They call them a bar, yet they have no They were so good but with the heat just a little messy, even for me. So the second time I ate it out of a bowl with a spoon haha. A grown woman with chocolate face is not as cute as it is on a little kid ;o). Now the last product we chose was the Magnum way to describe this.....EVIL GOODNESS! At 330 calories per bar, this is obviously NOT on my diet plan haha. Since life is short though I decided to try them out personally ;o) you know quality control......and oh my they were so good! I can't wait to try the white chocolate next time my store gets them in stock. I really do have to thank Unilever Ice cream products for helping my family stay cool this summer.

#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.
