Crab and Veggie Cheese Ball {leftover idea}

Happy New Year Guys!! 
How much leftover King Crab Legs or Honey Baked Ham do you have left at your house right now after the holiday?? Way too much right? You don't want it going to waste? Well this is what I did with mine. I de shelled those King Crab Legs and made this AWESOME cheeseball. But, if you guys had ham instead substitute the crab and add ham to the recipe. YUM YUM YUM.

Every year my friends and I have a party after Christmas get together. My assignment was an appitizer. This is what I came up with. It seemed like everyone loved it I mean it was mostly gone when we left :). Gotta love that! Thanks for having us Val!

Now I know you are feeling bad for me that this house was SO dirty. But, you can tell I will be just fine now. Now none of us will be catching any diseases haha. How did I do it? With these little things. These bad boys are under $2.00 see for yourself! Crazy right? So I did ALL of this naturally with no chemicals for under two buckeroons! I CHALLENGE you to try it. Maybe some of you already have tried it?? My mom stumbled upon these at Walmart awhile ago and introduced me to them. Thanks mom! Moms ALWAYS know best. So how it works is you get the stick wet and rub it on the surface of wherever needs to be cleaned. When you rub it the stick actually comes apart and dissolves. These sticks feel very hard and will without a doubt make you nervous about rubbing them on really anything. However, I promise you that it won't ruin anything. Rub as hard as you can. I have tried this stuff on nearly every surface and have still never scratched anything. This last picture is the after photo after I scrubbed the crap out of the shower. You can see how it has dissolved quite a bit. Seriously this took my mom and I less than a twenty minutes to get this thing shining like new. You are welcome you guys! Can't wait for your input.

Warm Egg Nog Breakfast {Wheat Germ}

Have any of you heard of Wheat Germ before? I know that I hadn't until a friend told me about it. This is one of those super foods that you NEED to know about! How many of you enjoy a nice warm bowl of oatmeal on a cold winter morning? I know I do! This will be your new "oatmel". Why?? Let me go over with you why Wheat Germ is so dang awesome by comparing it to oatmeal.

1/4 cup Oatmeal vs. 1/4 cup Wheat Germ

Wheat Germ has 4X fiber
Wheat Germ has 8X protien
Wheat Germ has 7X potassium
Wheat Germ has 3X calcium
Wheat Germ has 3X vitimin C

THAT is why you eat Wheat Germ INSTEAD of Oatmeal folks. I told you it was a super food! I have eatin this for breakfast every single day this week it is so yummy! Also SOOO filling. For me it is even more filling than oatmeal. Honestly it is hard for me to finish a whole bowl of this cause its so filling. If I was doing weights that day I also added a scoop of vanilla protein powder. I couldn't even taste a differece :). This is not just a breakfast thang however, I have also used Wheat Germ instead of Ritz crackers in my Popcorn Chicken recipe and it was a hit!
