This is a great recipe to try if you are craving something a little sweet, and a little salty. I usually like kettle corn, but if I’m in a pinch, this works great. Start by air popping 1/2 cup popcorn kernals.Add 2 Tablespoons melted margarine. You can use butter, but we have found that margarine worked a little better.
Add 1 teaspoon sugar, and a pinch of salt to taste.
Put a lid on your bowl, and make sure it is on good and tight. Shake it up. My boy loved helping with this part.This is a great snack to have if you love family movie night as much as we do.
Next week is the last week of school for my kiddos. It had me thinking about what a good gift would be to give to their teachers as a big thank you. A couple of years ago, someone gave me an idea I decided to do. I got out my handy cricut and cut some flowers. Mine were 2 3/4 inches, but I could have gone a little bigger.I inserted the end of a dry erase market into the hole in the center.
You could put these in a vase or find some other nice way to find display them. If you have the bigger marker, the top of the lid should fit in the hole.
Our city has a big celebration at the end of the school year, complete with a rodeo, carnival, parade, and other fun stuff. As we started preparing for it this year, I looked back at some of the pictures from last years parade. I thought it was funny that I had been trying to teach my kids to avoid playing in the street, and to not eat candy that has been on the ground. However, when a parade comes around, I encourage to run into the street and pick up the candy on the ground. I guess its okay to break a rule from time to time?
Sometimes, my washer gets a funky smell to it and I have to find a way to get rid of the smell. Hillary has a front loader, so she told me what she does, but I will have to try it with my top loader to. Here is what works for her.
Run an empty washing machine with your normal amount of soap and 1 or 2 Tablespoons of baking soda. Run it on sanitize if you have it. If you don’t do a normal run with the hottest water possible. When it is finished, open the door and the detergent drawer to air dry. This usually works great for her. If it doesn’t get rid of the smell completely, she run it a second time and hasn’t had any problems.
My family loves burritos, and I make them often. Sometimes we do breakfast burritos, sometimes beef. I am trying to teach my kids the best way I learned to fold burritos. Start by putting your filling a little off center. Try not to be like me. Don’t over fill it.
Then take the side closer to the filling over it and use the tortilla to push back the filling a little. It is best to use both hands, but I hope you get the idea.Next fold in both sides. Again, use both hands.
This is where you can see it is a little over filled. Finish by taking hold of the main part and folding it to the other side. If you had the right amount of filling, this should look great. Even if you have a little too much filling, it still doesn’t look too bad.
