Adventures in Gardening

My strawberries are coming in like crazy.  We can't wait for them all to turn red.  They are so sweet and yummy.  As soon as I pick them, the youngers ones are right at my feet asking to eat them:)

We finally have a baby strawberry in the planter that we thought had died last year.  There may be hope after all:)
The grape vines are still climbing but not producing any grapes yet.  Can't wait to have tasty grapes:)

Squash plants are blooming- yea!!
Our tiny garden is coming along nicely:)

This week's grocery shopping was super easy- 1 store:)  Easy shopping.

Menu Plan for the week of 05/27/2013

How was your Memorial Day weekend?  We just got home a little bit ago from our extended weekend trip to my inlaws.  We had a blast, enjoyed each other's company and of course ate way too much:)  I was super excited that my dad and his girlfriend were able to come down and share the excitement.

I am trying to get in gear for this busy week.  It is hard to believe that our oldest boy, Christopher is graduating from High School on Sunday.  Thanks to a super busy next couple of weekends, we decided to have his graduation party on Saturday.  And I still don't have anything ready for it.  Time to get focused becuase his party is not going to wait on me:)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Cereal- thanks to my inlaws
Bagels X2- thanks to my inlaws
Oatmeal with raisins
Banana Bread X3

Lunch
Sandwich, popcorn and carrot sticks
Salad and banana for me

Dinner
Spaghetti & Meatballs with corn
White Bean Alfredo pasta with green beans
Taco Soup
Chili
Chili Potatoes
Graduation Party
Possible dinner out after Graduation

Our Family Fun Yard Sale

With the time we had available, we went through most of our house and got together the things we no longer needed or wanted.  We stored these items in my closet:)

The Saturday finally arrived where we didn't have any plans.  We made that Yard Sale Day:)  We even put a small ad in my our local paper, hoping that would draw people in.  Kevin made yard sale signs as part of his art project:)

The night before, I woke up to a nasty thunderstorm going on.  Super bright lightening and very loud booming thunder.  Even woke little munchkin up and he wondered in our room asking if he could sleep with us because he was scared.  He fell fast asleep- me not so much. 

Morning came- ground damp but not soaking wet.  We decide to risk it and start putting everything from my closet out in the front yard.  We got everything set up:
I can't believe I had all this stuff in my closet.  The boxes in front are all kids clothes and there are 3 rows of boxes on the tarp:)



Hanging up clothes creatively:)
And of course, when we got everything put out and situated- yes it started raining.  We rushed what we could inside and then it stopped.  OK weather- make up your mind.  We started putting things back out and left all the kids clothes in the boxes in case we had to make a mad dash back inside.

People drove by and no one stopped :(  We remembered that we forgot to hang up the yard sale signs at the end of our road.  We were running all over the place trying to find the signs and had no luck.  The boys decided to take a sign and stand in our front yard and see if they could lure people in:
It worked~ people stopped by.  And between rain showers, more people came.  We didn't sell as much as I had hoped by we did make $50 and as my dad says that is $50 more than we started off with that morning:) 

After all was said and done and we finally decided to call it quits.  We put all the adult clothes that were hanging up between vehicles in huge contractor trash bags.  We filled up 3 bags and off to Goodwill that went.  The boys clothes and baby stuff that didn't sell are going to find themselves at a consignment sale in a couple of weeks :)  And of course after we brought everything inside, we found the yard sale signs Kevin made.  That is how it usually goes:)

April 2013 Monthly Project~ Salad Dressing

What do you get when you combine these ingredients?  Plus milk~ I forgot to take a picture of the milk:)


Well, that was a silly question the answer is the title of this post~ LOL:)

We LOVE ranch dressing here.  It is our favorite salad dressing, so when I was at Laura from HeavenlyHomemakers website and saw her Ranch Dressing recipe, I knew we just had to make it and see what we thought.

So, here goes:)

First we need to start off by assembling the Ranch Dressing Mix:

Combine the following ingredients in an air tight container (we use a ziploc bag):
5 Tbsp Dried Minced Onions
7 tsp Parsley Flakes
4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
Once we have made the mix, we can go on and make the ranch dressing.

Take 2 Tbsp ranch dressing mix and combine it with 1C of Mayo and 1 C of Milk - it is that easy.  Store in the fridge for a few hours so that the flavors can combine and taste awesome.
It looks good- it smells like ranch dressing but how does it taste?

The verdict...........

This is the most awesome tasting ranch dressing we have ever tasted.  No more store bought bottled ranch dressing for us.  This ranch dressing tastes so fresh.  The boys give it 2 thumbs up:)  It is a keeper:)

My Shopping Day~ 05/20/2013

Yesterday's shopping trip was supposed to be quick and easy~ simple.  It was supposed to be.  The more I looked through the ads I noticed I had coupons for a couple of items.  Then I noticed my CVS ECB's were about to expire and 1 had already expired- well time for a trip to CVS.  I am lucky they let me use my expired ECB:)  Then, of course, Kevin tells me that the dog needs more dog food and he doesn't have enough to make it through the week and that the cat needs more hairball treats- ugggggg.  That was an expense I hadn't planned on for this week.  I think that is going to throw me over my budget- we shall see.

Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Review & Giveaway

Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover is a unique spray gel that is tough on stains and gentle on surfaces.

When I was younger my mom always used Tilex.  We had our routine down pat~ open windows, put fan in bathroom, plug in fan and spray.  All while trying your hardest to hold your breath.  That stuff was strong and very sticky.  I knew my mom was excited when I became old enough to have clean the bathtub on my chore list. 

I was excited to try out Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover.  I read that it had no harsh fumes or overspray, it had a spray gel that clings to stains and it cleans tile, grout, tubs and showers.  We were happy to put it to the test.

First the smell, it claims to have no bleachy vapors.  I definitely smelled bleach throughout my home but it was not as strong as some cleaners are.  I could spray the shower, scrub it down and rinse all without having to go outside to catch my breath as I have had to do with some other strong smelling cleaners.

The cleaning power of Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew is amazing.  My tub and shower are very clean and shiny.  I love the spray gel- it is not so thick it clogs the sprayer.  I never had an issue with it not spraying.

Want to see if Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover is right for your family?  I have 3 coupons good for a FREE bottle of any Soft Scrub product to bless my wonderful readers with.  Entering, as always is super easy.  Just leave me a comment with your email address and you will be entered for a chance to win 1 coupon.

This coupon giveaway will end on 06/03/2013 and winners will be randomly selected and notified on 06/04/2013.

Soft Scrub is pleased to announce the Say Goodbye to Mold & Mildew Stains Sweepstakes.   One lucky winner will receive $1000 and a year's supply of Soft Scrub, while 250 second place will get to try Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover for FREE :)  Click here to go to the Sweepstakes Entry page.

**The Soft Scrub brand provided me with a sample of their NEW Soft Scrub Mold & Mildew Stain Remover in exchange for a review.  However, all opinions expressed here are my very own**

March 2013 Monthly Project- Homemade Bread

I finally got the opportunity to make March's project- Homemade bread- yea!!  I found a recipe I wanted to make and dove right on in:)

 I got out all my ingredients:
6 C Flour- divided
2 1/4 tsp Yeast
2 1/4 C Milk
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Butter
2 tsp Salt

We combined 2 1/2 C of flour and the yeast in a bowl and whisked it.  I put my butter in a microwavable dish and melted the butter.  I then added the milk, sugar and salt to the melted butter and heated in the microwave for 1 minute.  I added the liquids to the flour yeast mixture and stirred and stirred.  It was nice and gooey.  I added enough flour to the gooey mixture to make it not so sticky.  So, that it could be kneaded.  I kneaded the dough.

I put the dough in a greased bowl and put plastic wrap on top and put dough in the unheated oven  with the light on for 1 hour:
After 1 hour, I took dough out and kneaded it some more and then cut in in half.  I took out rolling pin and attempted the best rectangle I could and then rolled it up and put the rolled up dough in the pan:
 Then I put those 2 pans back in  the unheated oven to rise for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, I baked them at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
The smell of baking bread circulating those my house made my mouth water.  The bread looked so delicious when it came out of the oven.  It was hard to let cool without cutting right into it.  We let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then took the bread out of the pan and cooled on a wire rack before slicing.

Everyone loved the bread- winner:)  Nathan even told me that it was the best bread he has ever eaten and is requesting it everyday in his lunch.

This is a picture of my flour covered bread making helper:)  But he had a blast.

Menu Plan for the week of 05/13/2013

How did your Mother's Day weekend go?  Mother's Day has always been a rough day for me.  That was the last day I saw my mom, hugged her and even talked to her before she passed away.  I thought that Sunday was going to be a really tough day but I was wrong.  I was surrounded my supportive people who also miss my mom.  My dad's girlfriend was amazing- she got me a card and the words she wrote in the card brought tears to my eyes but in a good way.  I needed to see and read those words.  She is always looking for ways to honor my mother.  We are so blessed to have her in our lives. Ok- I need to stop now.  I am starting to get misty eyes and that is the last thing I need, water on my keyboard:)  We hope you all had a fabuolous Mother's Day and were able to spend the day with those you love.

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Baked Oatmeal X2
Scrambled eggs with fruit and toast
Cinnamon Sugar Pizza X2- this what my kids call it
 Pancakes X2

Lunch
