I have been challenged

Pic by winnond editing by me.

So, in case you forgot we are going to Disney in August!!!

WooHoo!

As a matter of fact we have exactly.....60 DAYS until we ARRIVE at WDW!!

Can I get another

WOOOOHOOOO!!!

So, since we are officially in CRUNCH TIME my hubby has issued me a challenge.

UGH!

It's ok, I think I can handle this challenge.

Because of my MAD creative couponing skills we have a pretty decent stockpile (please note I did say stockpile, not hoardpile).  With the exception of fresh meat, fresh veggies, fresh fruit and milk we are set!  Oh and except for bread (I will get to that in a bit though).

So, for things like bread, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, etc that I might not have in my stockpile I have been challenged to make.  Good thing I like LOVE to bake!

Yes, I have been challenged to make things from *GASP*......... scratch!  This should be fun!  I am a decent baker, did you know I once baked dessert and breads for a local restaurant?  I did!  LOVED it to.  Kitchen was a constant mess though.  lol  Not mess like yucky dirty you have bugs, mess like there was flour every where.

So, from TODAY until we depart for Disney.....in 60 DAYS....I will be making lots of things from scratch.  WooHoo!!

Just in case you want to know what is first on my list, I have decided to make The Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls!  YUUUUUM!  I figure I can match a batch or two of these up and freeze until we are ready to eat them.

So, who wants to join me in this 2 month challenge??

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!
