Disney Dining Plan vs Out of Pocket

Before checking the prices against each other we went ahead and booked the DDP (Disney Dining Plan).  We opted for the Deluxe option which allows you 3 sit down meals a day per person and also 2 snacks a day per person.  To me it just makes it easier to go ahead and put the plan on our trip and have all of the meals paid for before our trip and not have to worry about coming up with the cash once we are there.
In no partcilar order our Breakfasts include dining at:

For Lunch we have opted for:

And for Dinner ( I am REALLY excited about these) we will have:

Adding the DDP is a cost of about $72/per day for adults and $21/day for children.  Four our stay this comes to a total of $660.

Now, let's add up how much it would cost per day if we were not on the DDP and still going to all of the restaurants above.  I did look ahead at the menus and picked what I thought my family would enjoy and based my totals off of that.

The grand OOP total comes to....drum roll please.....$970!!!


So, I would say we are getting a GREAT deal by purchasing the DDP!

Now granted, if we did not have the DDP we probably would not do all the restaurants we are doing and eat REALLY cheap.  But, both my hubby and I went in to this saying "We may never go back, it isn't that much more to add the DDP, we never eat like this and it would be really fun, SO!  Why not?"

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
