Big G Cereal Heros

What’s more awesome than cereal? Cereal AND super heroes! Two of my boys favorite things.For a limited time, specially marked Big G cereal boxes will feature collectable DC Super Hero comic books starring members from the Justice League, from Batman to Wonder Woman to Green Lantern! (How cool is that right?!) Personally I give mad props to any cereal company that actually still puts toys in the cereal box instead of having to send 100 upcs off to get one. (Is General Mills the only brand that does that?)
We are huge cereal eaters here, for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes even dinner.(Yep I just admitted that to the entire world- I occasionally feed my kids cereal for breakfast!) I also put cereal in my kids lunch (dry of course)- oddly enough that some how makes me the cool mom! But my favorite thing to do with cereal is make cereal bars! Try this recipe, it literally works with ANY cereal. We tried it most recently with Lucky Charms (NOM).

So- I know you’re wondering how you can get your hands on some Big G cereal (besides going to the grocery)
Heres what you will win!

1 box of a participating Big G cereal
1 set of the collectable DC Super Hero comic books
1 Green Lantern action figure

These little teepee cakes are on my to make list. {seriously can you imagine the kids eating these?!? CUTE!}

My favorite thing about Thanksgiving {beside turkey of course} is the sweet potatoes!

From salad dressing to Veggie dip

I had the pleasure of being able to review Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip. Oddly enough I was super excited about it because Im ALWAYS too cheap to spend $3.18 on veggie dip mainly because I feel like I could just just salad dressing to dip my carrots and celery in. Honestly thats all I had done until I got this dip. And I seriously have to admit- I was WRONG. It wasn’t “watery” like traditional dressings are. It was actually really good. Id have to say in the future I probably will actually buy the Marzetti Otria Greek Yogurt Dip. It was flavorful- and delicious. I was told that I could try it in a recipe- and would you believe I couldn’t think of anything to put it in?!? Now Im thinking it would be AMAZING with some buffalo chicken wraps. Like seriously good- Im going to have to go grab some wraps to try it with. (Dinner tomorrow here we come). The Marzetti website also has some great recipes as well. Like THIS tuna fish sandwich (OMG John might actually eat this!) Instead of adding mayonnaise and mustard and relish you add the veggie dip- which personally I like the idea of not mixing as much stuff in. Even these Oven Baked Sweet Potatoes sound SUPER good. Especially since, they’re healthy AND its getting closer to Thanksgiving and those sweet potatoes are going to be going on sale, and best part I know my kiddos would like these and they would be perfect for in they’re bento lunches.

Anywho, back to the dip. Chandler did try it with chips- because were weird like that and like ranch on our chips, (we also like it on our pizza rolls too). Surprisingly enough when we dipped the tortilla chips in the dip- it was VERY good. I would venture to even say it was better than the chip dip, mainly because its not all watery, but in the same sense its nots TOO chunky either (ever had a chip dip thats TOO chunky- its actually super gross).

So- in all- Chandler liked it- on basically everything. Ethan was very worried about trying it (even though he LOVES ranch dressing) He dipped his carrot in it just a little bit, and then licked the carrot. Then came back a and took a HUGE dip, Needless to say he liked it a lot. Obviously John didn’t try it because getting that man to eat veggies or ranch would be impossible- but I think if he did try it he would really enjoy it.

Long story short- Try Marzetti Otria Yogurt Veggie dip– its in the veggie section at your grocery store, its worth the money, and super delicious.
