Simply Snackin a Great Snack for Your Lunchboxes

         With the school year fast approaching, we are constantly looking for great snacks to add to our children's lunchboxes. Something not only fun but healthy as well. Recently we were given the chance to review some great products from Simply Snackin. Are dried meat snacks packed with protein and low in calories. One of the best parts for our family is they are Gluten free as well. We received a great variety of snacks to try from which included the following flavors.
  • Beef Sirloin with cranberries & blueberries
  • Beef Sirloin with apples & cherries
  • Teriyaki Beef Sirloin with pineapples
  • Chicken Breast with black bean salsa
  • Italian Chicken Breast with Romano cheese
  • Teriyaki Chicken Breast with mangoes & papayas
         I was really surprised what a great size these were. They seemed much larger then a "regular" dried meat snack. I really loved the flavor of them all but the two Teriyaki flavors were really my favorite. The dried Teriyaki Beef Sirloin with pineapples had little chunks of pineapple that not only gave it a nice texture but really added to the flavor. In fact all the these great flavors were like that, from dried cherries to pineapples each had little bits of flavor throughout. Another great part was the ease of chewing, I know that sounds really weird but have you ever had a piece of jerky that hurt your jaw?? Not with Simply Snackin.
       At 60 calories a piece, with a half of a gram of fat or less there are a  perfect snack to add to your lunchbox line-up. And with 8 grams of protein or more it will give you that boost you need to keep going.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

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

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 :)

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
