KIND Snack Bars - Is Your Lunch #Kindawesome

     I can't believe how fast the school year is coming, it seems like only yesterday that summer had just begun. As I think about the school year it is only natural to start thinking about what I am going to put into my child's lunch this year. Recently I was given the chance to review and consider KIND Snack Bars. We received 5 great flavors to try, and of course like all reviews I do for food, the kids were more the eager to lend a hand!

     Now with the heat luckily only one of them had chocolate lol. The flavors we received were Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants,  Peanut Butter & Strawberry, Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein,  Blueberry Vanilla & Cashew, and Maple Glazed Pecan & Seasalt. Luckily we received more then one of each so it was easy to divide and share some of the favorite flavors. Of course topping my son's favorite list was the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein. I love that these have added protein. My Oldest son is a very picky child and well he always has been. Being able to add in some extra protein and having it taste great is a big advantage. This was also my favorite bar, but I guess then again I think if you throw chocolate into anything it makes it that much better! My daughter I may have mentioned before doesn't eat meat so any added protein is great for her, but her favorite was something else. By no surprise to be her favorite was the Blueberry Vanilla & Cashew. 
lmao he hate his picture taken
      We have really enjoyed all of these products and I was really excited to see that they were carried here at our local Walmart. So purchasing them will be easy for our family and I can't wait to try even more of their flavors. KIND doesn't just make snack bars either, they make many great products including 22 snack bars and 6 healthy grain cluster granola snacks. So if you are looking for something to put into your lunch, or maybe you just need a yummy snack I recommend KIND.
To learn more about KIND products head to their Website. Or you can check them out on Facebook and Twitter :)

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.
