Have you participated in the Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats For Toys campaign yet? Last week I told you all about this amazing opportunity to give back to a family in need, but if you forget the details here they are:
‘Tis the season for homemade gifts! I have decided this year to make my own gifts for our families. I was excited to start scouring the internet for ideas, but I also wanted them to be simple enough that I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed as I counted on two hands the number of family members I had to make gifts for. There is definitely no need for extra stress during the holiday season and gift giving should be fun, right?
Something I struggle with with my son is feeding him. He’s so picky. One day he’ll eat carrots, the next he will refuse. Even right now, I’m struggling feeding him an orange when for the past week he’s been inhaling them. I often worry about his nutrition and whether or not he’s getting everything his body needs to be healthy. Especially now that it’s the holiday season and I have been allowing him some Christmas baking every once in a while.
I have never made a Rice Krispies Treat in my adult life. Well, until today that is. I never thought of doing it before, but with the Treats for Toys Holiday Program there is no better time to start.
It’s fall here on the North Coast (however; with the light dusting of snow this morning it’s starting to look a lot like winter) and for me that means comfort foods. I’m talking warm, heart meals that speak to your heart. The problem with those meals is that it also goes straight to your waist line. Bret Johnson’s Turkey Chili recipe takes care of that with giving you the comfort food you crave, but at under 300 calories a cup – you won’t blow your nutrition for the day.
Disney’s Mickey’s Christmas Carol is a classic Disney movie, that doesn’t get all the recognition it deserves. This movie has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl and since re-discovering it a few years ago, I have watched it every year.
