Greek Taco

Here is a yummy snack I created out of my kitchen on a whim. I didn't have any olives on hand (insert sad face), but if I did this baby would be stuffed with kalamata olives.

Enjoy!

Beware Children’s Cough Medicines Containing A Controversial Drug | Healthy Child Healthy World

Are you ever confused by what OTC medicines really contain? I am. Almost every time my kids are sick, I worry about what I am giving them.

Is it really necessary? What are the side effects? Which product is the right one?

The last few years I have also been concerned with giving my children natural or homeopathic medicines. I feel much better buying products with natural ingredients, knowing that I don't have to worry about a recall.

The following article pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject.

She's Crafty: Stash Jar

I admit, I am a fan of the current stache craze. Something about people acting silly & putting fancy mustaches on makes me smile. So I couldn't resist buying a set of stache vinyl shapes at a local craft store when they went on sale last month. I wasn't sure what I would exactly use them for, but that didn't bother me.

Lo and behold...Father's Day gave me the perfect opportunity to use them. I came up with the idea of making stache (stash) jars for the favorite guys in my life.

For my husband, I bought him three flavors of licorice and put each in a plastic jar with a stache on the front.





For my Father-in-law, I decided to give him a dozen homemade chocolate chip cookies in a jar. My children call him "Papa", so I used my Silhouette to cut out the words "Papa's Emergency" to put right above a picture of a {mus}stache.





After all was done, I was very happy with the results. Easy to make, fun to look at, and something I know they will both enjoy!
