The other night the kid and I were camped out in front of the tv with a frozen pizza baking in the oven. I was in full-on 'bad babysitter' mode since the hubs was out of town. I caught a whiff of onion-y goodness and headed into the kitchen.
And as I rounded the couch I saw this guy...
I have had some friends ask me about how I make my homemade chicken stock, so I thought I would share it with you all today. I will warn you it is a lengthy post!
First, I make chicken stock because we prefer to use organic chicken and chicken stock in our home. Yes, organic chicken is much more expensive but in our house we believe that eating organic is important to our health (we are not overzealous about it, just try to stick with organic as much as possible).
Sorry it has been awhile. I didn't mean to get caught up with well life! Our weekend wasn't really busy but maybe that is what we needed. This week has been an awful whirlwind and we just want it over. We went to mid week service last night to try and recharge. Going to church is never bad but we wanted more of a recharge than a bible lesson but nonetheless it was good to go and God was happy we were there.

Cinnamon Essential Oil is distilled from both the bark and leaf of the cinnamon plant which comes from Sri Lanka and Indonesia.The aroma of the cinnamon essential oil that has been distilled from the bark is similar to that of cassia (Chinese Cinnamon) and it is often combined with frankincense as well as other oriental woods. However, cinnamon essential oil can cause irritation to the skin and should be handled with care. This kind of essential oil is particularly good use in aromatherapy to warm and comfort the person being treated....more
For a long time now Kroger's was one of the only places to get your groeries around here. As I got older more and more grocers popped up, some sticking around for years others were gone so fast I barely remember their names!Just recently Cincinnati and Daytonn regional Kroger's announced that they would be slashing prices on hundreds of items and as of March 1st would no longer take double coupons, that has thrown a wrench in my savings plans let me tell ya!...more
I am utterly fascinated with the concept of four-season gardening. Here in New England, growing stuff in the winter is no easy feat, but I have been hoping to work on extending my garden season, so I’ve been reading up a lot of ways to garden year round. With that goal in mind, last month we began a little experiment… we are currently attempting to grow potatoes inside! We've always had good luck growing potatoes out in our garden beds, and I did read that potatoes can do very well in containers, so we thought we'd give it a go....more
Ok so my next tip is regarding couponing! I have found an amazing site and it has been a huge lifesaver. Thekrazycouponlady.com. She does everything for me except print or cut out the coupons. Every Sunday after I gather my paper coupons I go to her site. She has everything sorted by store! I grab the stores weekly ad and see what she has to say. She tells you what good deals are at each store and where to get the coupon....even past coupons. She cuts out all of the hard work. I put each stores coupons into their own envelope with that stores list....more
Dirty, grimy, smelly and just plain disgusting are a few ways to describe an unmaintained dishwasher. Dirty and smelly do a great job of describing an unmaintained washer. I have both and regularly maintain them both....more
We survived the party! Our daughter is officially one. Her party was a success and we appreciate everyone who made it. Next year we might delay her party. Seems everyone, even me, had something. We had quite a few day of cancellations....but who doesn't love cupcakes? We had enough for one every night for a week! But it was a wonderful party and we look forward to many more. Is it terrible I am already planning next years theme? Oh it's a toss up Cinderella or Alice in wonderland?...more
