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.

Oh this is a fantastic idea! I did not get as creative as you. I just ate them! lol They were so good!!
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.

lol good they are! Trust me I opened the package and wanted to just shove the whole thing in my mouth haha but that would ruin the 5 pounds I lost :p

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!

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 :)

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
