Recipe: Skinny Philly Cheesesteak

So in January I enrolled in Weight Watchers, for the like the 3rd time! ha! I've been doing really well. I'm 4 lbs away from my 5% goal. Whoo hoo!! Well anyways, in order to stay on track with my points I've been finding yummy recipes. This time I wanted to try to do one on my own. For dinner the other night I really wanted a sandwich, but wanted to do something different. I was looking online and then the thought hit me! Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. Ya! So here is how I made it for 9 points.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

Ingredients

1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1/2 onion
thinly sliced roast beef, deli meat
reduced fat provolone cheese
1 whole wheat pita bread




First you slice the veggies thin and saute them in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Stir them occasionally.



Next place the meat in a pan and warm it through, stir occasionally.



Then heat up the broiler. Butter your bread. (the sub rolls were for the hubby and son)


Then put the meat, and veggies on the bread, put 2 slices of cheese. Stick back in the broiler until cheese has melted. Now you have a yummy and easy, 9 point Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich (Pita). MMMM

Nursery Singing Time Ideas

I felt that I needed to share my ideas for Nursery Singing Time.

I am the designated singing time leader in my ward (congregation) for Nursery, and I LOVE IT! I have been in this calling for 2 years now, and in that time I have come up with ideas to make singing time fun and interactive for the little ones.

Here are a few things that I have made for the list of songs that we sing each week.

Bracelet Bells: made from colored pipe cleaners and small silver bells. We use these when we sing, If You're Happy (children's songbook page 266).


Sunbursts: cut out using my Cricut, laminated with the clear shelf liner, and large popsicle sticks. This is for Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam (children's songbook page 60).


Stars: I found there cute stars in the Super Little Singers CD that I bought. I printed them out on yellow card stock and laminated them with the clear shelf liner and used large popsicle sticks. We use these when we sing I Am Like a Star (children's songbook page 163). You could also use these for Twinkle Little Star.


Ribbon Wands: I used small dowels, I found them at Michael's, with 3 different shades of blue ribbon and pinned on top with a thumb tack. The kids love these, but I always have to remind them to wave them down low to mimic water, as we use these when we sing "Give", Said the Little Stream (children's songbook page 236).


Egg Shakers: I used plastic eggs filled with beans, they make more sound than rice. I hot glued the eggs shut. We use these when we sing Do As I'm Doing (children's songbook page 276).



I also like to let the kids choose the songs instead of me. So I've made a few things to help with that.

Music Sticks: I painted large popsicle sticks in different color, and wrote the songs on each stick that we sing each week. I try to give each kid a turn to pick a stick.


Fishing: I found pre-colored fishes in the Super Little Singers CD that I printed, cut and laminated. I wrote on the back of each fish a sing. Each fish also has a paperclip on it. I also made a fishing stick using a dowel, ribbon and magnet. This is also a big hit with my little ones.


Music Flowers: This is my newest way for the kids to pick the songs. I found pre-cut foam flowers at Joann's. I painted large popsicle sticks green for the stems and wrote the songs on each of them. Hot glued the stems to the flowers and put them in a cute little basket to carry. Go HERE for the tutorial to make them.



Here is a list of songs that I teach each week.

"Give," Said the Little Stream
I Am Like a Star
Do As I'm Doing
Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam
If You're Happy
Wiseman
Book of Mormon Stories
Popcorn
Head, Shoulders
Snowman

I also have a reverent song that gets the kids ready for their lesson time, which is I Am a Child of God. But just before we sing I will give each kid a "reverent" sticker. For my older nursery kids I also do a wiggle song to get them ready for the reverent song, which is My Hands (children's songbook pate 273).

Each class takes me about 10-15 mins, which is recommended. It allows the teachers to get ready for the next part of their schedule.

I have a few other ideas that I plan on making, so once I have those made I will share. But for now this is all I do.

Music Flower Tutorial

With Spring here I wanted to make a new way for my nursery kids to pick the songs that we sing each week. So I came up with music flowers, here's how to make them.

Materials
pre-cut foam flowers
large popsicle sticks
1 sheet sticky back yellow foam
1 sheet sticky back orange foam
green paint
small basket

The first thing I did was paint the popsicle sticks green.


Then I cut out the orange and yellow middles and stuck them to the pre-cut flowers.

 
 
I then wrote the songs on the back of the sticks and hot glued them to the back of the flowers.
 

Voila! There you have super cute music flowers that the kiddies will enjoy! Mine loved them!

Be Prepared - February: Foil, Trash Bags & Paper Towels

Told you I'd be back with more info for February's emergency preparedness.

The additional items you should be collecting are:


  • axe
  • paper towels
  • trash bags
  • foil
You're probably wondering thinking, huh? Why these items? Ok, an axe you would need to be able to cut things down. But paper towels? Trash Bags? Foil?

Let me tell you that these things would serve you in ways you probably never would have thought of.

Foil: has many uses. Let me name a few.
  • line containers for increased insulation: it will help keep food hot longer or colder
  • great for covering things
  • you can cook things in them, you know the hobo style meals you make while camping
  • you can make a funnel with foil, probably best to use the heavy duty foil for that
  • you can sharpen scissors
  • make a solar cooker
Paper towels: what would you use paper towels for?
  • use in your garden when planting
  • wrap your clean produce after it has been washed to keep fresh
  • use as a strainer
  • soften brown sugar
Trash Bags
  • use as a poncho
  • protect your sleeping bags and pillows
  • use as a tarp
  • stuff with leaves to make a pillow out of it
  • use to catch water in
  • white trash bags can be used to signal for help
So not as un-useful as you might have thought, huh?

I didn't buy the expensive ones, bargain brand will do just fine.
