Peanut Butter Cereal Treats

So other day, when the kids pulled the "I'm huuuunnngggry" for the 12,039,856th time, I finally gave in and told them they could pick any snack they wanted me to make, but it had to be able to last them a few days. What did they come up with? Cheerios treats. I was secretly relieved because they are so easy to make!

A Little Catching Up

I've bee MIA for a few weeks. It started out just by missing a week here and there, then that turned into two weeks, then three and, well, you know how it goes. I've just been busy lately! For the first time in years, I've had energy and drive to really get things done. 

To make a long story short, back in March my allergist diagnosed an infection I've probably had for years. I have been feeling like crap for a couple of years now and my family doctor told me I needed to lose weight. She didn't seem to understand I physically did not have the energy to get up off my butt! However, my allergist knew within 3 minutes of conversation what the problem was. I'm on my third month of this medication and I feel great! 

Much to my husband's delight, I've gone fishing with him several times already this year! 
He's been catching them left and right! 

My dad has gone with us a few times as well. 

They have great's what I catch:

Maybe I should stick to cooking. 

I've also been busy in the garden. The recent heat has really helped the garden grow! 

Above: tomatoes at about a month
Below: Potatoes at 3 weeks
Broccoli at two months
 We finally have tomatoes now! 

 Also learned a valuable lesson in composting. When you toss your jack-o-lanterns into the compost box, don't be surprised when pumpkins grow in your herb garden!!!

I think I'm going to officially put Made From Scratch Tuesday on hiatus for now, but I'll try to make some time for blogging this summer!
