Simply Potatoes Review and Giveaway

 In this house potatoes are served with nearly every dinner. I'm not sure if that is healthy but it sure is tasty! Recently I was given the chance to review a product that was new to me. Simply Potatoes is actually a brand that is much more then just simply potatoes.lol With 5 varieties of mashed potatoes, 9 varieties of cut potatoes, Macaroni and cheese and 3 brand new steam-able potatoes the options for dinner seem almost endless! Unfortunately for me the store was having an amazing sale when I went to pick my products so my options were a little limited, but we found two that my family would love. I made them both with a big Christmas style meal(hams were on sale :OP). First we have the Homestyle Creamy Macaroni and Cheese this was by far the favorite of the two products that we tried. It cooked quickly and easily in a matter of minutes in the microwave. The next product we tried was the Traditional Mashed Potatoes. These were my husband's FAVORITE. Now I have to admit he is the reason we eat so many potatoes.lol So in order to make him happy they were obviously pretty good. I loved that they were pretty well seasoned and didn't just taste like BLAH potatoes. Just like the Mac & Cheese they heated quickly and were ready to eat in no time. The best part is they easily served my family of 5 with only my oldest son craving more Macaroni.lol Simply Potatoes also has a great recipe section, in case you don't want just simply potatoes ;o).

These sound so good! I know my husband would love them as he is a huge fan of meat and potatoes! I like how they have so many different flavors, and are easy to fix!

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

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)

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 …
