Menu Plan for the week of 03/31/2014

I cannot believe it will be April tomorrow.  Where is this year going?  It needs to slow down a bit.  This year keep flying by and my boys continue to grow up :(  They just won't stop :)

We  hope that you all had a fabulous weekend.  We did nothing.  We were supposed to go to a church picnic but it rained and rained and rained some more.  Thankfully with all the rain, I didn't have to go out and water my garden.  It was done for me :)  And since the county came out and fixed our drain pipes, we didn't have another flood :)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Pancakes X2
Baked Oatmeal X2
Gluten Free Oatmeal Spice Muffins
Oatmeal with raisins and honey
Fruity Spinach Smoothie

Lunch- Our usual
Salad with homemade ranch dressing and a banana for me and hubby
Sandwich with homemade bread, carrots and peanuts for everyone else

Dinner
Chicken Nuggets, Mac & Cheese and green beans
Lentil loaf with mashed potatoes and peas
Alfredo pasta with green beans and rolls
Spaghetti with peas and garlic bread
Chicken Noodle Soup and grilled cheese with fruit
Sausage Gravy over biscuits and eggs with fruit
Baked Chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans

Snacks
Carrots sticks
Ants on a log
Peach Crisp using this Apple Crisp recipe
Peanuts
Popcorn
Chocolate Oatmeal no bake bars
Homemade Energy Bites 

What do you have planned on your menu plan for this week?  Post below, I would love to read all about it :)

February 2014 Monthly Project

In January, we did a massive freezer cooking day.  It was a hit and I loved being able to just dump the contents of the zipper bag into the crockpot, turn the crockpot on and walk away.  Hours later, dinner was ready to serve.

I was curious to know if you could make and bake bread in the crockpot.  I used the Swagbucks search engine to look up the answer.  To my surprise, why yes you can cook bread in the crockpot.  I found and followed a recipe from Busy Moms Menu Plan. 

I got the ingredients in order and off to work we went:
I put 1 Tbsp of Yeast, 2 Tbsp Sugar, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 1/2C Wheat White Flour in my food processor and processed it for 1 minute.
I then added 1 Tbsp Oil and 1/2C boiling water.  I hit the dough button and let it do its thing.
When the dough started clumping up, I took it out and formed it into a ball:
I let it rise 1 hour in my unheated oven.
I placed the dough on top of parchment paper in my crockpot.  Turned the crockpot on low for 1 1/2 hours.
This is what we got after 1.5 hours in the crockpot.  I sliced it up and served it with our Lasagna Casserole dinner this evening.
The opinions in my family.  The boys all loved it, they said it tasted great.  Michael and I not so much.  It was very heavy and didn't look cooked all the way through.  So, I don't think we will be making this any time soon.  I will stick to making 1 hour rolls :)

Purex Crystals Review & Giveaway

I was super excited when chosen to test out Purex's Newest Crystals.  We really enjoyed the last Purex Crystals, Fresh Mountain Breeze scent we tested out.

Make laundry day Fabulously Fresh with New Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh.  New Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh is the latest Purex Brand laundry enhancer bringing a fresh sensation to your laundry experience.  This limited edition bottle and scent will add a colorful escape to your laundry day.

New Purex Crystals keep clothes smelling Fabulously Fresh for weeks, not days.  It does not reduce the absorbency of towels and is safe for all loads, including children's sleepwear and athletic wear.

I am loving the cute colors of the new bottle.  The last scent I tested out we really enjoyed, well this one we love even more.  I am not big into strong floral scents and this is not a strong floral scent.  It smells light and airy kind of what you might imagine Spring might smell like if it had a smell :)  It is Fabulously Fresh :)

And the crystals are this cute neon green:

Thank You Swagbucks:)

Nathan has been asking me to look into a corn dog maker for some time now.  I finally accumulated enough points on Swagbucks and cashed out for Amazon gift cards :)

The hunt was on.  We found a Corn Dog Maker that had good reviews and was in our price range.  In the cart it went.  Then, what was that?

Something caught my eye.  Was it true, is that a picture of a Waffle Stick Maker?  Could it be?  I never knew such a thing existed.  We have a waffle maker now that is sitting collecting dust.  The huge waffles are too big for my younger boys.  And it is a pain to cut the waffles up.  Plus as they sit, they get soggy and kind of rip instead of cut and that just leads to a whole new unpleasant morning experience.

It was indeed a Waffle Stick Maker.  This is perfect.  It makes waffle sticks that would be great for picking up, dunking and eating.  And a great size for my younger ones.  Now, my older ones would probably be able to eat them faster than I could make them :)  But they are older and can make their own waffles :)

We looked at the Babycakes Waffle Stick Maker and talked about it.  It just happened to be a great price and did not go over my available Amazon balance.  In the cart it went.

And then the waiting.  And the checking my Amazon account to see if it shipped.  After it shipped, the boys had me track the tracking number to see where it was and how many days it would take to get here.

The door bell rings and the boys jump up.  Our mail man has a nice big Amazon box.  We rip open the box and inside was our brand new Waffle Stick Maker and Corn Dog maker.  Nathan and little Michael are so excited:
Nathan and little Michael would love to say, "Thank You Swagbucks and Amazon."  Now, they are trying to figure how to fit corn dogs and waffles into our menu plan :)  I love the fact that by using Swagbucks I was able to get both for $0 out of pocket :)

Our Super Fun Saturday

The boys were super excited when they found out that we were going to Manatee Park in Fort Myers.  Nathan asked if we were going to get to see some manatees.  We kept our fingers crossed we would.

The park was great.  At the beginning, there are some clip boards with educational activities for young and older children.  Hooray for educational field trips :)

The boys had fun learning all about the similarities of manatees to that of humans.  They also learned about some of the wildlife, trees and plants that are native to Florida.  Even though we didn't see any manatees, everyone had fun and learned.

Here are some pictures of our trip:
Working on their clip board activities

I love seeing my older boys helping the younger ones learn

These lizards are every where

Orange River

Dragon Fly

Bunny

Epiphytes- Air plants- we did not know there was an actual name for his mossy looking stuff

Playground time

Michael says he loves this place

Nathan just hanging around- LOL:)
Michael on slide

Curious squirrel

Beautiful mural

Wanted to get all my boys picture from tallest to smallest- well you can see that just didn't happen :)
There is an All About Manatees talk that we missed.  The boys want to come back for that and to see if they can see the manatees next time.  We found out that the manatees make their appearance between November and March.  We must have just missed them :(  Well, there is always next time :)

 I can't wait to see where our next Saturday Family Adventure takes us.

Adventures in Container Gardening

Oh wow- it just occurred to me that it has been a while since I last posted about my small backyard container garden.

I still have not had a chance to plant my green bean seeds that I got from church.  Must put that on my to do list :)

My container garden is still alive.  I am in shock.  I just knew that my container garden would look pretty in the beginning and then my lack of green thumb would kill it all.  I do have 4 empty containers of those poor unlucky plants :(

Here is what is going on with my small backyard container garden, at least what is left of it:
My poor cherry tomato plant

Tomato plant doing really well.  4 new tomato babies and looks like more to come

My green pepper plant.  The first green pepper was delicious.  One more growing and more babies are sprouting :)

Spinach plant seems to be doing really well.  This is the regrowth from last month's picking :)
I am excited for my small backyard container garden.  Time to get the green bean seeds in and see what will happen with them.  Hopefully, it won't be so long until my next garden update :)

Our Saturday Kite Flying Adventure

We were trying to figure out what to do and where to go on our Saturday Family Adventure.

I looked outside and noticed it was pretty windy.  That is one thing I love living here, that we have a nice amount of windy days.

It  hit me~ we have kites and the boys have yet to use them.  We never had a chance to use them in Virginia.  The boys eyes lit up when I told them my plans.  I just had to find a spot away from trees and power lines.  I had a spot in mind but noticed the empty lot beside our house was away from power lines and trees.  We decided to give it a shot.

Michael flying his kite with his hat from his paw paw :)

Chris decided he wanted to join the fun
The boys had fun flying kites.  Even though Nathan did "accidentally" let go of his kite and it flew across the street and into the power lines, then unstuck from the power lines and got stuck in our neighbor's tree- not once but twice.  Michael got bored with his kite flying and decided to run around the empty lot collecting cute yellow weeds, um I mean beautiful "flowers" that he decided I needed.  So thoughtful :)

We were outside for hours. No tv, no Internet, no video games :)  Just together having fun :) 

I can't wait to see where our next Saturday Family Adventure takes us.

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap Review & Giveaway

UPDATE:  Since we only had 1 comment, katychick won the coupons.  I have emailed and mailed them out~ enjoy :)

I was excited when the Dial box arrived :)  It was like Christmas.  I love receiving goodies and surprises in my mailbox :)

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap is the latest Dial Brand hand soap bringing luxury to your hand washing experience.  These premium soaps feature vibrant scents, a gentle micro scrubber formula that smooths and moisturizes the skin, and a completely new design that adds personal style to your home.


Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap comes in 3 scents: Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar, Water Blossoms and Coconut Lime Verbana.  I received Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar and Coconut Lime Verbana to test out.

At first glance at the names of the scents, I wasn't sure what to think.  I thought the Yellow Raspberry was going to be too fruity.  Boy was I wrong, it smells great.  Kind of like a sweet tart.  Mmmmm- sweet tarts.  The Coconut Lime Verbana does not smell like coconut at all.  It is floral but it is a light floral and the light scent stays on your hands.  It is refreshing.  I am not a huge fan of anything floral but this is not bad at all :)

Looking at the bottle you will notice these black particles floating around.  These cool little things are micro scrubbers.  When washing your hands, you feel them working.  It is an interesting and neat feeling :)

Want to see if New Dial Deep Cleansing hand soap will be a good fit for your family?  Great news :)  Dial was so nice to send me 3 coupons good for a FREE bottle of Dial Deep Cleansing hand soap to bless my wonderful readers.
Since the expiration date on these coupons are 03/31/14, this coupon giveaway will end on 03/14/2014 at 11.59 EST.  I will randomly select 3 winners on 03/15/2014 and will post and email the winners.  My hopes are to have the coupons in the mail bright and early Monday morning so you can receive them in plenty of time to use them.

Entering as always is super simple.  Just leave me a comment below and you will be entered into this coupon giveaway.

Good Luck and a huge thanks to all my beautiful and wonderful readers :)


**The Dial Brand provided me with a sample of Dial Deep Cleansing hand soap in exchange for a product review.  However, all opinions expressed here are my very own.**

Our Fun Pancakes

Or as my 4 year old calls them- pannycakes :)

I was on Facebook reading about everyone's interesting lives and what cool things their families have been up to.  One of my friends from Virginia posted a picture of a piece of toast that she made look like a bear.   It was so cute.  A thought came to mind- what a great way to get kids to eat more fruit.  Make breakfast fun.

I showed the younger boys the picture and they immediately asked if I could make a bear pannycake.  I said I would try and it was history from there.  The boys are having a blast.  They tell me before they go to bed what animal they would like for me to make and wake up in the morning to an interesting fun pannycake.

Here are some of our creations so far:
Bear

Was supposed to be a monkey.  But he didn't turn out well, so it became a funny face.

Jelly Fish

Fox- the boys couldn't resist singing What did the Fox say with breakfast :)
They are enjoying their fun pancakes.  For tomorrow, they are requesting a dog.  So, I need to put my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with :)
