Artic Zero

With summer comes heat, we all know that and yeah yeah I complain about it a lot lol. We also know by this point in the blog that I LOVE ice cream. Well problem is my muffins top also REALLY love ice cream and it all seems to go straight there and they have a fat party. Work out you say? Well yeah but that isn't going to get rid of all the fat from a traditional ice cream, not to mention have you ever read what was in other store bought ice creams?? Some of them are quite bad for you in just about every way! Artic Zero is out to change all that. With only 150 Calories a PINT, not a serving but a pint you can pretty much enjoy as much as you want. their pints are also fat free and loaded with 14 grams of protein. Now their bars are a little bit worse for me (which of course that means they were my favorite) but better then a traditional ice cream bar and available in 4 different flavors and the pints in 6 flavors!
 Now I mentioned the bars were my favorite but the pints were pretty good as well. They were not as rich and creamy as I was use to and tended to be more mild in flavor. My favorite pint was the Vanilla Maple! In fact that was everyone's favorite flavored pint. I have started using Artic Zero as my after workout snack recently. I get such bad cravings after a hard workout and while this is no piece of cake it fills my need for sweet :O)

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.
