*****One day left to register for the Bear Grylls - Gerber Survival, Fire Starter, so here to register.
Instead of making a large meal for the Super Bowl, Bulldog Man and I baked 2 separate trays of chicken wingettes, one with honey pecan BBQ sauce, and the other with hickory bourbon BBQ sauce. Then we made up some pico de gallo dip, opened up a bag of tortilla chips, cut up various types of delicious cheese, pulled out various types of crackers, cut up a tray of vegetables, and the entire family pigged out for the evening while watching the game. We had enough leftovers to last several days for lunch and snacks.
*****Great news, Bulldog Man sold his 1994 Ranger truck with topper shell today. It was a great little truck; we used it for years, and decided it was time to sell the truck instead of putting more money into it. Now we’re down to being a one truck family, saving money by no longer putting money and time into a 2nd vehicle, yet another way of being FRUGAL!!
*****When I’m not doing things in the house or on the property, I love to sit and read a good book and do some crafting. The last time I was in town, I picked up a book titled, “I taught myself Crochet” and some yarn at Hobby Lobby. Yes, you heard right, I’m going to teach myself how to crochet. I want to start out by making dish cloths for my kitchen, and then I will eventually move onto larger projects, time sparing of course.
Speaking of doing this in the house, I just finished pulling absolutely everything from my kitchen cabinets and ended up rearranging them again. This house we’re renting is an older house and the kitchen cabinets are not real deep, making it extremely hard to store large plates. The end result, the larger plates ended up being stored in the drawers on the far side of the kitchen. I’ve was able to clear out a large double wide cabinet for the vegetables and fruit I will be canning in the next several months. Here’s a picture of the kitchen, and older cabinets before we started making it our kitchen with crazy décor.
The canning jars I scored at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago along with those recently purchased when completing groceries have been washed and ready for the next upcoming vegetables and fruits to be canned.
The weather today, extremely foggy, drizzling, rain, and a chill causing a person to want to crawl back in bed and light a warm fire. How was your weather today?
