Jello Pudding VICTORY!

As some people know, my youngest daughter has food allergies. I've found that she can have vanilla pudding. That would be good and all but we also discovered that pudding doesn't mix all that well with soy milk.

Hmmm....what to do, what to do.

I looked at the mixture and saw that it was somewhat thickened, but not nearly pudding consistency. I wondered what would happen if we added more pudding mix?? Would it thicken with additional pudding or just form an icky clot in the bowl? I added another box, and BINGO! Pudding consistency! My daughter was dancing around the kitchen with joy. It's been ages since she's had good old Jello Pudding! So, now you know how to make it work if you don't have soy allergies.

My Free Magazine Stash

Ok, I know it's been ages since I've updated, but I've been super busy!

It occurred to me that I currently receive a ton of magazines in the mail. Some of these are subscriptions I intentionally requested. My Real Simple, National Geographic, Vegetarian Times, Better Homes And Gardens, Martha Stewart Living and Country Living magazines are the ones I couldn't do without.

Recently, I've gotten other magazines in the mail because I answered a few survey questions. Yep, they promised magazines and I did get the promised goods in the mail. I was a little surprised, but I now receive Metropolitan Home, Elle Decor, Interview and Maxim. Maxim is a substitution for Hallmark Magazine. I was puzzled by the arrival of Maxim but eventually figured it out. The last time Maxim arrived in the mail, my husband brought it inside and asked me why I was now getting Maxim in the mail?? He was holding it between 2 fingers at arms length like something smelly the dog might roll around in. It's good for bathroom reading, if nothing else and I can recycle it when I get sick of looking at Shannon Elizabeth on the cover.

I'll locate the link to free mags and update later so be sure to check back!
