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!

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.
