Start the School Year off Right With Nature's Own Oatmeal Toasters

     It amazes me to think the the school year is only days away for our family. As we get back on schedule and the rush, rush, rush begins I can't help to think of fast and nutritious breakfast that I can feed my family. Recently I was given the chance to review a great new breakfast item that not only gives me something that is fast, but is also good for them. Better yet it is something that I can give my children a an on the go item. Nature's Own Oatmeal Toasters are such a neat idea to me. We have all seen traditional toasters covered in icing and filled with sugary substances, and of course our children would love those. Nature's Own has made something that is still appealing with sacrificing the great taste.

     My kids were a little leery to try these at first, of course because they looked healthy and what child just wants something healthy, they want it covered in sugar. As soon as I popped them into the toaster though their minds started to change. The house filled with the smell of oranges, it was really just beyond being able to describe how good in smelled.lol When I separated them to toast them it was really neat to see actual pieces of fruit throughout the toaster, real fruit, not a paste or a sugary slime but chunks of fruit. It really helped me feel even more comfortable that these would be a healthy option for us.
You can see the oranges and cranberries!
     First we tried them plain to see what they actually tasted like. We all really liked the taste, although my oldest was a bit put off by the orange flavor I told him not to worry they were available in Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Toasters as well. So he was really excited about that, since that is one of his favorite flavors of well......anything. We have really enjoyed trying these Oatmeal Toasters  out and I can't wait to pick up some more for the first day of school!

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

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 li

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.
