Target Monster Cereals (exclusively at Target) Review

Are you as old as I am and remember enjoying these cereals as a child?  Oh how we loved these cereals.  Count Chocula and Boo Berry were our families favorites!!  I was really excited to be able to introduce these cereals to my son.  As a word of caution, they are not Gluten Free.  They are made of corn which is a safe grain for Celiacs but on a line that also manufactures wheat..  That said, I have a non Celiac child who I keep Gluten Free.  For him, these cereals were perfect!  And I was excited to be able to share them with him just as I did when I was his age.

And..... Because of our personal experience and excitement towards this line of cereals, I wanted to share the following word from our sponsor with all of you....

Get ready for Halloween before all the ghosts, goblins, and monsters come to your door with this exclusive offer only at Target!

Menu Plan Monday: Week of October 14th, 2013

Hey Bloggy Family!  I had a few of you clamoring about where my menus were so I figured I had better get my booty in gear.  So sorry for the super slacker status.  There really is no excuse so I won't bother to give you any.  We are all busy.  Tho, things are starting to wind down in the Flower Business.  I am "officially" in hot pursuit for a job with more hours now.  I had promised myself I would be following this temporary gig to the end.  Since the end is in sight, I can start to mentally move on.

In other news, I have tried a few outstanding recipes this past week. Feast your eyes on these Grain Free Corn Dogs (or no corn-corn dogs as we like to call them).  I added a tablespoon of Honey and used jarred cashew butter to save time.  You may need a tablespoon extra of water too if you go that route.  I also tried Against all Grain's Grain Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  I'll be darned if they don't taste like oatmeal.  None of her recipes ever let me down, you can't go wrong over there.

Served over Spaghetti Squash


Hamburgers - Hubby is out of town so kiddies will have this.
Adults eat hamburgers on lettuce leaves topped with onions and avocado


Easy Crock Pot Taco Soup

Saturday: Chili Fest
Sunday: TBD

Menu Plan Monday: Week of September 30th, 2013

Good Morning Bloggy Family!  Here we are again, another Monday.  School is in full swing now and all the after school activities are back in action.  This year I am teaching the 3rd and 4th graders at our Church's Wednesday program.  My daughter has Girl Scouts, my son has Cub Scouts.  My kids also do Karate and Soccer. Oh, I work too. It is a full plate, I know it.  Somehow we must eat, especially since eating out is not recommended.  Last time I ate at Olive Garden I was seriously contaminated, and they HAVE a gluten free menu.
