Tonight, we are having a Ladies meeting/activity at my church. We are all supposed to bring a snacky item that is salty or sweet, so my mom called me to let me know that she is bringing Chex Mix as we think alike sometimes and will bring the same item.
Well, I thought what would be better than the sweet counterpart of the salty Chex Mix than what we call Puppy Chow (and is also sometimes called Muddy Buddies)!
Now some people love salty, and some love sweet. I am a sweets lover, and one of my downfalls is Puppy Chow. I find it highly addictive, so I rarely make it.
It’s easy to make and a great snacky food for a party or a get-together. If you don’t already have the recipes, here they are; and I would love it if you leave me a comment letting me know if you are a salty lover or a sweets lover when it comes to food! [Read more…]
Boy, I did a great job at making goals for me to try to keep this year!! If you wanted to see my original personal priorities post that I wrote based off Crystal Paine’s new book, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, then you could go here. I’m doing a rather lousy job at keeping them. In fact, I am not going to copy my goals and put frowny faces next to everything I did not get done. That is too depressing. So I’ll let you know what I did do, what I didn’t do, and what I want to do next month!
One positive: I’m doing more than if I didn’t have goals at all! [Read more…]
We had an amazing gift given to us this week–we had a friend give us four 2 pound bags of salmon fillets! Now, our family does not eat salmon normally, because that is too expensive to be included in our food budget. So I put three bags in the freezer and immediately defrosted one bag for Sunday dinner.
I love cooking fish for a great Sunday dinner after church as it cooks so fast! Combined with my freezer mashed potatoes that were in the oven warming up during church and a bag of corn, I had a relatively simple dinner! [Read more…]
My kids love macaroni and cheese–like most kids do. But they really love the shells and cheese type of macaroni and cheese. I have bought the Velveeta/Kraft versions before, but was hoping I could find a homemade version of the boxed kind. [Read more…]
This is the easiest recipe you could ever make for Valentine’s Day–and one that is guaranteed to make kids happy. What’s to lose?
All you have to do is make Rice Krispie treats, sprinkle red sugar on top, and then cut out hearts with a cookie cutter–so easy! [Read more…]
Instead of typing up a new recipe, I combed through all the linkies I have hosted here at Creative K Kids in the past couple of weeks and found these great Valentine’s Day recipes! [Read more…]
Yep! “Uh-oh” is the word!
I have a feeling I have not done too great this month. So I’m going to copy and paste my detailed goals here, and we’ll look at them. Before I do that, I want to say: I’ve done a ton of blogging this month with setting up The Ultimate Linky. Setting up a new blog takes many hours, so now that it is done, I will hopefully be able to focus on some of my other goals. [Read more…]
