BBQ Pulled Pork

After a crazy couple days away from home we were so excited to get home. To sleep in our own bed, use our own stuff but mostly eat real food. I get so tired of eating out when I'm on the road. The hard part is I didn't have much groceries in stock. I was too tired to get back in a car and drive to the store too. I opened my fridge and was so relieved to find some Lloyds pulled pork and Hormel mashed potatoes.

I quickly made up so homemade BBQ sauce, Heated up the pork and mashed potatoes.I added some Parmesan cheese and garlic salt to the poatatoes to make it just that much yummier.  Oddly I had a small salad bag that hadn't gone bad. So I added some cheese and Hormel bacon bits. In the end it was nice to have a home cooked meal after eating out so much, and it didn't take a lot of time or work either.





In the spirit of full-disclosure, I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

#22hourswith2manykidsin1car

I decided to try adding a little vlogging to my blogging. Just in time to witness a ridiculous road trip. Keep in mind I have driven to New York City and back with several stops in between. This one is going to be epic! Why? Because this one is 13 people in 1 car for 22 hours! That's right 9 kids, 4 adults, 6 tires, 1 car and lots of potty stops. 

Priming our trip with a 4 hour car ride to pick up the other 7! 


Outdoor Twister with a Slippery Twist

I kept seeing posts for an outdoor twister, paint twister and shaving cream twister. I decided to combine the idea's into one. 

First I cut out a circle out of cardboard. Well as circular as I can get it, let's be real I failed cutting in school. 


Some tips. Watch your spacing. Too far apart and it's hard to stretch from one color to the last. Too close and it will be small. I made a double sized one since I had lots of people doing it at once. I suggest do a row of twister and make sure your arms spread from one row to to the last. Also my green paint in a little so you may want to try a more brighter green if trying to decide which one to use. 


Then I Moses shaving cream with food coloring. I bought the cheapest shaving cream at Walmart for $.98 a can. One can did about 8ish circles. 

Once the shaving cream is added be careful it can be very slippery. Then we just aged twister normal. When we were done I ran the sprinklers and the shaving cream washed away. The paint will stay for some fun twister games till it goes out. The kids live to play twister on just the paint with neighbor kids. 

You could buy paint and put a little on each circle as well. Hope you have fun this summer with this twisted game of twister. 

Cost:
 4 cans of paint $8.50
6 cans of shaving cream $6
