For teacher appreciation week this year we did some Pinteresting and found this cute idea. We put individual Crystal Light drink mixes & tea mixes inside the cups. They were a big hit with Jack’s teachers
- 1 lb strawberries, sliced
- 1 lb rhubarb stalks, cut into pieces
- 1/2 an orange, zested & juiced
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1 cup Quaker oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of butter melted
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a large bowl mix strawberries, rhubarb pieces, orange zest, orange juice, cornstarch & honey. Toss until fruit is covered in honey mixture; set aside. In another bowl mix oats, flour, brown sugar, butter & cinnamon. Spread fruit mixture in greased 9″13 pan, top with oat mixture. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until fruit is bubbling. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream topped with TS creamy caramel sauce.
- fresh asparagus stalks, ends chopped off
- TS garlic garlic
- olive oil
- salt & pepper
Wrap fresh asparagus stalks with strips of bacon, place in a greased shallow pan. Season generously with garlic garlic and salt & pepper. Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil over asparagus. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes, then broil on low for an additional 10 minutes, flipping if needed.
These were so yummy. Next time we are going to make them on the grill though because we like our bacon crispier!
After seeing an idea on Pinterest, I concocted this for my grandma to keep in her hospital room as she starts chemotherapy. She lives and breathes for her grandchildren so what better way for us to always be with her. It turned out so great and she loved it. I thought it would be much better than bringing her fresh flowers because those only last a few days.
I used die cuts for the flowers, cut out all the faces of the grandchildren (even the dogs), laminated them. Spray painted kabob sticks green & stuffed foam in a vase and covered with fake grass. Glued on a ribbon bow and vaaala.
