Rice Crispy Treats Opps!!

 This was in 6th or 7th grade, just a couple years ago...really? I had never made them before. I learn how to make things by watching it being made. My friend Sierre and I wanted to have them so how hard could this really be? We know how to read and follow directions. What we didn't think about was what tools we should use!! To back up a little, we got the butter and the marshmallows in the pan and started melting them. Then once that started burning we started to freak out. We put the rice crispies in anyway and started to stir them, with a spatula. You know the kind that's plastic and melts!! Yup we still ate them!! I'm sure there was more marshmallow then plastic right?? 

I have since learned how to make them and make them about once a month. Oh this is funny. When Chris and I first moved in with each other. I made the treats out of almost every cereal I thought would be good. I don't think that Chris could look at another treat for years after that. 

My really good friend Lisa has requested that I blog about the Peanut Butter Fluff dip I make. Now I can not take credit for the recipe because I got it from the Pampered Chef, Kids in the Kitchen cook book years ago. So here it goes.

Peanut Butter Fluff Dip
Vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. of cinnamon
(mix together)
Fold in 1/2 cup Cool Whip

Keep cold or cool.

Nutella!! Peanut Butter Fluff Dip
Vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup Nutella
1 tsp. cinnamon
(mix together)
Fold in 1/2 cup cool whip
Keep cold or cool. 

We eat it with apples, strawberries, angel food cake, really anything that would be good with peanut butter. I would say bananas but those are EVIL!! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Me Funny, noooo.

I have had people tell me for a while that I'm funny. My reply to that has always been, only if you know me. In one week time I had two different people tell me "no, your funny". So that's one of the reasons why this blog thing started. After my first post I was stalking people on Facebook to see what they thought. Was it funny? Did you laugh? What part? Then self doubt started in. Should I still blog? I can't hear anyone laugh and I live for that. I wrote a list of things that I thought would be fun to write about: 

The Forbidden Room
The Oreo tin and Coke cans
Rice Krispy oops!
"Me won't do that ev-ah again"
Blue eye shadow story
My beer thoughts
The Fire
Hate cards, like scrap booking?
Tigger in the shower
SAH mommy, I need a smart phone right?
FPU Obsession
Rosie, Oprah and reality TV
Switching the cheese

What I will do is once these stories are done, I will see if people still want more. Or if I even have more to write about. Are you ready for the ride?
I am.

Hi, is this thing on??

Hello, my name is Kim. I am a mommy to two and a wife to one. I live in Wisconsin but my heart will always be in Illinois. 

I type how I talk, so I've been told. So if I am in a conversation there are times I will take an off ramp and not signal. I promise that I will try to get back on the road again.

I love the color green, apples, Pinterest, and having people to feed. I love my family also, it's when I don't like them they should be worried. 

I like, cooking, shaving my legs, scrap booking, couponing and Facebook. Pretty much in that order also. 

I believe in God and Jesus. My pastor said that I don't have to be perfect. So I do swear and sometimes think other men are yummy. *coughChrisO'Donnellcough* LL Cool J, Mario Lopez....I think it's because I have dimple envy. I guess I like gay guys also because I was crushed to find out Lance Bass and Dave Holmes are gay. 

I don't drink and tend to judge people who do. Let me clarify, a few years ago I did drink a couple of times a year. The first time I was in a bar I was 30 years old. I never liked the feeling of losing control. I'm square and I am totally ok with that. 

I've never smoked or did other drugs and love it when my doctor asks, so I can say No. 

After seven years of not watching Dora the Explorer. I was able to sing the whole "I'm a grumpy old troll that lives under the bridge" the first time it came on.

Most of the people that know me think I'm funny and as long as you laugh at my jokes I'll be BFF's with you forever!!

As you can see I don't have a clear direction as to what  I want this blog to be about. Sometimes it might be a recipe that I want to try or have tried and love. It might also be about people that do not use their turn signals that drive me crazy. (Off Ramp Warning) I follow the law so I have no record. I can get a gun! I shouldn't because I have road rage and I would shoot people's tires if they pissed me off. I might also talk about having 13 and 3 year old daughters. Of having a husband with ADHD, diabetes, high blood pressure, allergic to A LOT, and might possibly be bi-polar. I myself have PTSD and get depressed. My goal is to use this as a Dear Diary and things to work on. 
Example: Oprah 3 things to be grateful for;
1) Long naps
2) A clean stove
3) Some Mommy time
Oh and alone time in the bathroom and my happy pills!! 


One more thing before I go....
If your going to comment that's great!! Just be nice and don't hurt my feelings. If I can block you I will. Oh and no swearing, my kids might be reading this. I can swear, freedom of speech and everything. ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to "see" you again. 

Always and Forever,
Kim P
