A Sweet Sunday with Mrs.Freshley's

     Sweet treats are one of my biggest weaknesses, so I have spent some time adding just a little big of my favorite sweet treats into a semi healthy dessert that pleases any sweet tooth. With berries starting to come into season here in West Texas it has finally made it a bit more affordable to make a nice dessert from them. Here is my Mrs.Freshley's Berry Snack Cake Dessert:
Yes it is as good as it looks!
 Making this treat is really quite simple. I made one large(the wine glass) and 3 small(the little mason jars) for a lunch time treat for my children and I. Here is how I did it!

Ingredients
  • 7 Strawberries cut into quarters
  • 1 Cup of blurberries
  • 1 Mrs.Freshley's Dreamies snack cake cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 Package(2 cakes) of Mrs.Freshley's Swiss Rolls cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • Containers to your liking
The snack cakes I used :)
Directions
  1. First mix your berries together in a bowl, having a colorful blend makes it so cute and appealing.
  2. Add one slice of each snack cake to the bottom of your containers.
  3. Spoon berries over top to make a thin layer.
  4. Continue layering till all of your goodies fill your containers.
  5. Enjoy!
To make a smaller serving put one slice of snack cake on the bottom
add your berries, and top with the other variety of snack cake!
My kids really enjoyed these and I enjoyed knowing that they were not only getting a very special treat but also a healthy amount of fruits.

I would have never thought to do something like that. What a great idea. I always avoided the area with those types of things, now I will have to try to make them healthier.

I knew I could never avoid the sweets. They have been a BIG part of my life for a long time. So I compromised ;) made my calories under 100 for the big wine glass!

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.
