Finding Cold Relaxation With Old World Gourmet

It is has gone from nice to miserable so quickly here in West Texas. With summer comes a way to not only cool down but enjoy the summer nights. Now I will admit I am not really a wine kind of girl but when a chance to review an adult Frozen Wine mixer came about I thought maybe it would bring a fun way to enjoy wine to my life. Old World Gourmet offers a wide variety of not only wine mixers but cocktail mixers and gourmet snack as well. I had such a hard time selecting which one to try first but finally I settled on the Blueberry Pomegranate Wine Mixer.

I loved how easy it was to make! I simply added the bottle of wine to a bag with the mixer and a bottle of water. The bad part was waiting for it to freeze! I used a nice blackberry wine and it was AMAZING! My husband liked it the most, but beware it is so delicious that you may have to worry about how much you consume.lol

As you can see it is nice and slushy frozen and oh so good! The next one I tried out was the Frozen Cosmopolitan Mixer. Now on the box it said to add vodka or white wine, but I decided to get a little wild and found a strawberry wine that looked good. The process was the same as far as mixing goes, but this time I used my brain and made it while breakfast was cooking so that by mid-afternoon it was ready for my tasting. When the temperature hit 90 degrees this afternoon I scooped out a glass and enjoyed. Not only was the taste amazing and different but it was a nice way to cool off while relaxing.

These are great ideas and for the price is a great way to increase not only the volume of your drink but the enjoyability. I highly recommend these as a great way to cool day on a hot summers day. They would also be good serve over ice if you were in a hurry or simply forgot to throw it in the freezer ahead of time!

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 :)
