I saw this in an article on HGTV and decided to give it a try. It works! I am very impressed to be honest. I knew the baking soda and vinegar is a chemical reaction. After I made the above video, I googled about the tin foil. It turns out that foil, baking soda, and … Continue reading Oven door cleaning in four minutes
Ted unloading boxes of pork We picked up the pork yesterday from the butcher. We do this every couple of years and yet I am still always shocked at how much meat actually goes into the freezer (it's a LOT). This is the end result of quite a bit of hard work. Removing ice build-up … Continue reading Pork time!
Last week, we (Ted, Jake, Janeesa, and I) went bowling and ordered takeout. As we were sitting in the parking lot, waiting on our food, Sahara called and frantically told us to get home asap because the storm was coming in and tree limbs were falling on the roads due to high winds. As we … Continue reading When the power goes out

I make a fresh pot of coffee every morning now that I'm home again (shout out to Ted for making me coffee and handing it to me every morning all school year!). Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, coffee … Continue reading Anybody want coffee?

He's called The Prolific Familystead, and I've found him on Facebook and YouTube. Here's … Continue reading Gardening videos
These are our new steers! They will be here @ 12-18 months. They're very skittish still! These two want nothing to do with nose pats or ear scratches or a piece of fruit... YET. Challenge accepted, boys!
It's always been a running joke that I had a black thumb. I loved planting things and having flowers, but Gramma always came up weekly and reminded me which ones to water and fertilize. She sometimes just did it all herself. Most of my plants died every summer, and only a pothos lived inside (I … Continue reading Thank you, Gramma!
We love the Cedar Bay Sugar & Spice Salmon that's sold at Kroger. It was a nice splurge at the grocery store when on sale, but it's recently been running upwards of $21 - $24, and that's just way too high. I pulled some salmon out of the freezer tonight and started looking for a … Continue reading Sweet & Smoky Salmon
