Tropical Traditions

Nothing is better then a home cooked breakfast to start the day. The reality is though I rarely have the time during the week to make something hot for my family. Several times a week we are forced to turn to a cold cereal in order to get our family fed. Recently I was introduced to a new cereal by by a company we are know. Post Honey Bunches of Oats Tropical Blends combines two complementary flavors that you love to make what can only be described as a party in your mouth.

When we received our box of Tropical Blends Crispy Mango and Crunchy Coconut my kids were a little hesitant to try it, like most kids usually are. They really seemed to enjoy the taste of this cereal. I am actually strange and do not eat cereal so they have been my little reviewers this go round. they not only loved it served as a breakfast cereal with nice cold milk but have also began to eat it as a dry snack! It is a great value I found it for $2.98 a box at our local store and we got about 15 servings out of a box. What I love most is it is a cereal that all 3 of my children are excited to eat and like all Honey Bunches of Oats products I am assured it is offering them great nutrition.

I've never seen the Tropical. The kids and I love the one with almonds and we just had the one with strawberries. Both Tropical sound yummy.

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.
