Rocky Mountain Popcorn- A Pop You're Gonna Love

There are many things in life that I love, the crunch of popcorn is one of those. So of course when I got the opportunity to review Rocky Mountain popcorn from Open Road Snacks I was beyond excited. When it first arrived my kids and I were both very eager to dive right in and review, we did :). I was really shocked at how many different flavors of popcorn there were. White Cheddar(my personal favorite), Butter, Caramel(okay so maybe this is my favorite I think it is a tie), Kettle, Jalapeno, Naked(lol plain), Cinnamon with Sugar and Southwest Cheddar(I didn't get to try this one but sounds yummy).
A little Jalapeno popcorn please :)
When shopping for snacks for my children it is so important to find not only something that is good for them, but also something they enjoy. Of course at the end of the day fruits and veggies are the best for you but sometimes you just need a special treat. Rocky Mountain Popcorn offers that for us. You can have either a sweet treat, something a little more savory or we can add just a little crunch to our day with the Naked flavor. Rocky Mountain Popcorn offers something that many popcorn companies just do not. Rocky Mountain Popcorn is all natural, gluten-free, and certified non-GMO kernels . Popcorn is a great source of protein, with more protein than any other whole grain, and has more iron content per serving than spinach or eggs! What most people don’t know is that popcorn is high in antioxidants, most notably the plant extract polyphenol. Honestly I didn't know that and I thought it was a really neat fact :)
We have really enjoyed reviewing Rocky Mountain Popcorn from Openroad Snacks. I was really excited to learn that I was able to buy is fairly locally. No worries though if you cannot find it near you it is available to buy online at their site as well!

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.
