Pre-K Prep | Snacktime with Lunchables Jr.

 
 I can't believe my baby starts school this year! I have been dreading this day all summer. School starts next week and my heart is already racing and breaking into a million pieces. Even now, as I write this, I am crying. I am going to miss my little stinker! Part of being a mom is training your kids to be able to survive in school. We learned when Mads was in 4K that the kids must be able to open their own packages during lunchtime and snacktime. So, off to Walmart MG and I went to search for some snacks for her to practice with. We settled on some Lunchables Jr.
Lunchables Jr. is exclusive to Walmart and can be found with the Baby Food. They come in 4 varieties: Blueberry Bonanza, Very Berry Crunch, Ants on a Log and Teddy Bear Picnic. I love that each come with real fruit, that helps get more fruit into MGs little body which is important to me.
I wasn't sure how MG would do with opening her own package, I usually open things like this for her. She did need a bit of help with her milk but, was able to get the Lunchables Jr. package open just fine. She did spill a bit of it on the table, but just a few pieces.
I just can't believe how big she is. Where did my baby go? It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital and now, she is independent, super sassy and ready for school. *sigh* I know she is ready, but I'm not. Not at ALL! I want her to stay little forever. Without the tantrums, of course.
Have a BLAST at school this year sweet MG. Mommy loves you SO much!

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!
