Boxes for Bama info

Because of the recent Tornado Outbreak in Alabama there are many, many families that are now having to start over. I am not in the position that I can help by donating money but I AM in the position that I can help by sending a box of food!

I encourage all of you to send one box of food and/or one box of toiletries. You can find Flat Rate Boxes at your local PO and as long as your box is under 75 lbs it is a flat rate to send, rate does depend on box size.

If you would like to participate I can get more info to you, just send me a message on Facebook or email me at thecreativeprincess [at] gmail [dot] com.

Also, if you would rather make a monetary donation you can do that as well. You can do that through me, all money will go to Mountain View Church to help them with costs of helping those in the area. If sending money, checks should be made out to Renovation Ministries and labeled clearly Tornado Relief. You can also donate to the American Red Cross.

Thanks to all!
Brandi

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.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
