I am so excited to be your official host this week! You guys linked up so many cute things and awesome recipes last week that I had a REALLY hard time deciding what to do. I was walking around Walmart the other day with 3 projects in mind and not knowing what to do. Luckily, my shopping trip helped because my store only had the items I needed for just one of the projects. Problem solved. For now. lol  I still plan on making the others in a few weeks, don't worry, I will share them with you all!
  Last week, Natalie over at La gang a Nat shared her CUTE teacher gift idea of Painted Bamboo Utensils wrapped in pot holders. Seriously, so cute! You can find the directions on her site. I did change two things up. I waited until the paint had dried to remove the tape, just use a knife to score the paint just above the tape and it will peel off without tearing the paint. Also, I have not added the varnish yet, only because I need to get some. But, I do plan to add it before using.
If making these for a gift, plan on at least 24-36 hours of dry time before gifting. I think I may have found my go to Christmas gift for all of those "extras" that come up!

Thank you all for linking up such awesome things last week!

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!
