Corn and Tomato Dip Recipe

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was relaxing and we stayed home most of the weekend, so that was nice after being so busy lately.

Summer time is known for BBQ and get together's with friends. Along with swimming, fireworks, late nights, and just a good time! We get invited to a lot of parties and get together's throughout the summer and I always like to bring something to pass around or if I'm throwing the party I like to make enough snacks for everyone.

I found this recipe for Corn and Tomato Dip and it looked so good and perfect for the summer that I had to try. It was a hit! We used some Tortilla scoops to eat it with and it was the perfect, light snack. Healthy too, which is always a plus!

Here is the recipe! You can add a can of black beans to it as well but I'm not a fan of beans so I left it out. My husband wasn't very happy about that but it was still good! I think next time I'll be nice and add the beans and just pick around them and I also want to try it with avocado because I think that would be really good.

This recipe is also gluten free! And I think that the cilantro is what makes this recipe taste so good, it gives it a nice fresh taste and it was amazing!

1 (14 oz) can corn - drained

The Jaclyn Hill Palette by Morphe Review

Happy Monday everyone! I hope that you had a great weekend! We didn't do too much this weekend, which was fine with me. My husband worked both days so the boys and I just relaxed, did some cleaning and some playing.

Have you ever had your mind made up on a purchase weeks before it released? Ive done it with several things and the Jaclyn Hill Palette was no exception. I was sold once I heard about it. And wanted it even more once she released a picture of the colors. It looked so pretty and I loved the mix of colors she was incorporating in her palette.

Homemade Slime

My boys and I saw a commercial the other day for making homemade slime using Elmer's Glue. They thought it was so neat and wanted to make it. I decided we would go ahead and give it a try!




I looked the recipe up on Elmer's website, made my list of things we needed (Only 4 ingredients and i had 2 of them at home already!), and off we went to Walmart to pick up the items we needed.

The recipe was super easy and they had so much fun helping me make it. Next time , my oldest wants me to add some glitter to his. Sounds like a good idea to me!

Let me know if you try the recipe below and how your kids liked it!

Recipe (via Elmer's Website)

-

4 ounces Elmer's white glue

1/2 TBSP Baking Soda

Your Choice of food coloring

1 TBSP Contact lens solution

Directions:

1. Pour the entire 4 oz bottle of glue into a bowl.

2. Add the baking soda and stir well.

3. Add the food coloring. Add as much or as little as you want to get the color you would like.

4. Add the contact lens solution. Stir it in until it becomes harder to stir and the mixture becomes slim.

5. Take out of bowl and knead with both of your hands. If the slime stays too sticky, add a little bit more contact solution.

6. Let your kid enjoy! Make sure to be around them when they are playing with their slime. It should not be eaten.

Thank you for reading!

Beachbody on Demand Review: How it Works and What you Will Find

Happy Monday! The start of another week. I hope everyone had a great weekend and hopefully you don't have to go back to work until Wednesday and you get an extended holiday weekend! My husband picked up some extra shifts at work so unfortunately he is working today and tomorrow but we didn't really have anything planned anyways.

I'm sure you've heard of Beachbody, unless you live under a rock! Beachbody is a company that sells many different great workout programs along with Shakeology, apparel, performance line (pre workouts, protein shakes, etc.) and they assign you a Beachbody coach. That would be someone like me! I am on a journey to help others feel good about themselves through health and fitness just like it makes me feel great!
