Yummy Summer Recipe

No one like cooking when it's almost 100 degrees outside! I like to make meals that don't take time or heat when the heat outside is up. Two of my favorite things require very little ingredients or effort and the best part, NO COOKING!

The first is a recipe for a snack the whole family loves and I love my kids eating because of the health benefits.

Power Balls:
1 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. ground flax seed
1/2 c. chocolate chips
1/3 c. honey
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. vanilla extract

combine all the above in a bowl. Let it chill in the fridge for 30 mins then form into 1 inch balls.
My kids love these as much as we do, they really love helping me make them. I can eat 2 of these (with some restraint since I can probably eat the whole batch by myself in one sitting) for a snack and my hunger subsides and I feel energized. Enjoy!

The next recipe is for an easy ready to take breakfast:

Overnight fridge oatmeal:
1/4 c. uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 c. milk
1/4 c. vanilla yogurt
1 and 1/2 tsp chia seeds (I add extra since I love chia)
2 tsp maple syrup
1/4 c. blueberries

Mix ingredients in a small jar, secure the lid and shake until well mixed. Place in the fridge overnight and your yummy breakfast is ready for you to grab and go first thing in the morning.

Summer project- garage

One of the best things we ever did was cleaning out our garage so we could start parking inside a nice organized garage. It is so easy for your garage to become overtaken by boxes, tools, big items meant for the dump etc. One reason people avoid clearing out the garage is how overwhelming it can seem. Having a good plan going in is essential. I asked a friend to come over that would help me get rid of stuff without justifying its purpose or being over sentimental.We stocked up on plastic bins of all sizes and setup some shelves for storage and hooks for hanging items. There are so many options to help make organizing your garage super easy. 

Make sure you give us a call so we can help haul off your junk.
