Abbott Nutrition Pack a Snack - Champions for Kids

I recently signed up to be part of the Abbott Nutrition Pack a Snack project.  This project is so close to my heart.  You have heard me talk about wanting to start awesome things in this community.  You know I have a heart and passion for helping kids.  You have also heard me talk about the kids around here being hungry.  Oklahoma is now the 4th hungriest state in the US.  The number of Oklahomans at risk of going hungry every day is astonishing to me, 600,000 people!  One in four Oklahoma children struggles with hunger.  I know for my community that number is much higher.  We have to do something about this! 

 For this campaign I will be purchasing Abbott Nutrition Snack Packs and donating them to a local charity.  The charity I have chosen is my local Salvation Army Backpack program.  This program provides food for children for after school and weekends.  It surprises me that most people do not know that there are children that only eat at school.  The only food they eat for the day is whatever is provided at school.  Thank God for programs that provide food for these children.  It is so important for children to have nutritious food options and am glad the Backpack Program offers this.

I am very excited to be a part of this simple service project, you can find more info and other ideas on the Champions for Kids website.  During the next few weeks I hope you will join me in this mission and donate to a local organization and help change the face of hunger!

I am proud to be working as one of the millions of Champions for Kids.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias.  All opinions in this post are my own.  #CBias  #AbbottCFK

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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
