Easy Brunch for Kids, 30% off Perfect Threads, and Terry Treetop finds new friends Review

Kids love to be able to choose their own food at meal times, and they especially love when there is tons to choose from. Around here we eat a small breakfast when we first wake up, and then snacks in between and then a nice lunch. Well I found to treat the kids to a special treat they really enjoy having a small breakfast and then a big brunch just before lunch time. Here are some of the things I lay out for the kids: fruit cocktail apples, oranges, bananas, strawberries sweet breads (banana or cinnamon) sausage eggs bacon toast juice tomatoes cucumbers I lay it all out on large platters give them plate and let them dig in. It is a fun and easy way to get them eating different things and is a special treat that helps with independence.  I love getting gently used closed at bargain prices for my kids. They are usually brand names I would not normally buy so it is terrific. One of my favorite places to buy from is Perfect Threads and right now they are having a

Broccoli, Grape, and Bacon Salad and Hym and Hur Review

Broccoli, Grape, and Bacon Salad I love simple salads that you can set in the fridge and they actually get better with age. This salad is such a great mix of salty, sweet, and tangy it is like a party in your mouth.  You will need: Grapes 1 Pound of Bacon Broccoli Mayonnaise Salt & Pepper Romano or Parmesan Cheese (Optional) 1. Slice the bacon into 1/2 inch pieces and start frying you can use as much or as little as you like, I love bacon so in goes an entire package. 2.Chop up all the broccoli into bite sized pieces, I used two large heads of broccoli.  3. Slice about 2 cups of grapes in half, I prefer red grapes because they are sweeter.  4. Prepare your dressing, I mix my mayo, salt, pepper, and cheese together in a cup to ensure everything is mixed well. I have also tried adding other dressings into my mayo, such as coleslaw dressing and it tastes great.  5. Drain your bacon and let it cool. Drop it into the broccoli and grapes. 6. Add the dr

Smith Creek Fire! Evacuation Prep!

  This is what I can see from my backyard, this crazy fire is burning 2 kilometers away from my house. There has been so many planes and helicopters whipping passed my house all day it is crazy. It was 400 hectares this morning and then by 7pm it was down to 250 hectares. The wind is picking up and we are on evacuation alert.    What should you know about evacuation preparation? So it has been a stressful couple of days and I think everyone needs to prepare for this type of thing if they live in an area like mine that is on fire every summer. When thinking about evacuation you need to get the basics together: family members medication wallet/money pets But if you are on an alert and not an evacuation order you have much more time to prepare. You should begin packing up important stuff like: pictures/memory cards electronics valuables clothing bathroom amenities kids stuff diapers/wipes/formula  Fire is very unpredictable so if you are on alert ge

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

I love cheesecake. I really love it when I don't have to warm up my house making it during the summer. This is one of my all time favorite recipes and it is perfect for your kids to help you make it to. No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake You will need: oil to grease pans 6 ounces of graham crackers  3/4 stick of butter or 1/4 cup of margarine 1 1/2 cups strawberries 1 tbsp sugar 2 tbsp water 1 package of strawberry jello 7 ounces or 1 package of cream cheese 2 cup whipping cream (1 for inside cake 1 for decor) 1 tbsp vanilla 1 tbsp sugar  Grease your pan with the oil. Take your graham crackers and place them in a bag so you can crush them.  This is fun for the kids to do, but if your by yourself you can use your food processor. Put your butter in the microwave while your doing this. Place the fine crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Slice up the strawberries into small pieces, they don't need to be exact sizes just a rough chop will do. Place them in

Being as young as I am I never thought I would see actual results using this product.
