Zucchini Relish

Yes, our house is on the market and yes I still have a producing vegetable garden! After all I have no idea how long it will take to sell our home and I still believe in having a well-stocked pantry. Plus, I don’t want any of the harvest to go to waste! So how do I preserve our harvest? Here are a few ways. Garlic: I just pulled our garlic and it is currently drying for a few days before I make garlic braids. I grow just enough to get us through until next summer! Zucchini – There are many ways to use up zucchini. Two favorite ways are; Zucchini Cake Zucchini Relish Tomatoes – I have already been enjoying the gold cherry tomatoes, which haven’t made it up to the house yet! When we have too many to eat I often will dehydrate the cherry tomatoes. I also make a terrific Tomato Basil Sauce and an amazing Salsa. Another favorite is my Oven Roasted Pizza Sauce, nothing tastes better on one of my husbands amazing pizzas!Herbs: I often dry herbs and as a result I have an abundance of dried herbs in my pantry!Herbs can also be frozen and used during Read More […]

Castile Soap

I mentioned several weeks ago that one of my favorite cleaning products was Castile soap. Two items you’ll always find in my cupboard are Castile soap and vinegar! Both are great cleaning products. There are just simply so many ways to use Castile soap in your household cleaning. Trusty Castile soap and distilled vinegar are all you need to clean and soften your linens. Just use ¼ cup of soap per load and ½ cup of vinegar with the rinse cycle. Make an herbal dishwashing blend. Essential oils in this blend have antibacterial, as well as aroma-therapeutic qualities. Plus it just smells so good! Liquid Castile soap 10 drops lavender essential oil 8 drops rosemary essential oil 4 drops eucalyptus essential oil Fill a clean 22 oz plastic squirt bottle with Castile soap. Add the essential oils. Shake the bottle before each use. Add 1-2 Tbsp of the liquid to the dishwater and wash as usual. Do note: this blend is not suitable for use in dishwashers.   Pine Fresh Floor Cleaner Do you use a microfiber mop? If so try this natural formula for cleaning your floors. It works just as well as commercial pine solvent cleaners, but leaves a light Read More […]

thank you cards

Our children may be grown with their own children now but I remember the days of “I need it!”, “All the kids have one!” and “Why not?” sound familiar? Remember dating with the “gimmies”? Every parent knows that when a child wants something, he’ll morph into a master negotiator. Your debating skills may be bolstered by a superior grasp of logic, but your child has unlimited time, energy and determination on his side. The answer may seem simple (just say no), but the reality is more complex. If your kids have grown up in a culture of plenty, the shift to thrift may be a shock; expect to wage an ongoing battle for some time. The good news is that if you model good old-fashioned virtues (waste not, want not), you can make an impression on your children – no matter what their age. Virtue may not win arguments, so keep the following tips in mind: Emphasize how hard you work to earn your money and let your child know you must make decisions on how to spend it. The amount of money you have is limited and even grown ups can’t get everything they want. Make a wish list Read More […]
