About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

I LOVE these pouches.  I have about 20 of them between the "little green pouch" and the yummi pouches. (www.littlegreenpouch.com and www.yummipouch.com )  My family loves bringing these along any trip to snack on, and because you don't need utensils they are perfect for the car, tournaments where you sit in a gym/auditorium for HOURS (oh wait you don't do that?  Must just be our family, hehehe), and great for lunches.
First off I was making pineapple puree for my son who LOVES pineapple, but lets face it he is coming up on 4 and pineapple chunks leave him STICKY and anything in his surrounding area sticky.  I filled those pouches up and had not enough left for a full pouch.  I left it in my Pampered Chef Food processor that I love so dearly, and added handfulls of blueberries, black berries, and cut up some strawberries. 
Processed it up- 
(I love this food processor because i'm able to take out the blade and it leaves you with a bowl that is EASY to pour, scoop, or spoon out of.  Wereas a traditional food processor has a HUGE whole in the middle where the blade sits and you have to be careful when you are trying to get the food out of the bowl.
This little guy I got from Kitchen Collection for under $5.  TOTALLY WORTH it if you are going to invest in the pouches.  Makes filling SO much easier.
Then just fill it up.  Take a dry erase marker and notate what is on the inside.  Zip it up and store in the fridge!
