Today’s Makin’s Chicken Broth

36954192_10155835263840895_3424784965957582848_n

Today I made some chicken broth. I’ve made it before and posted my recipe. It was just one of those days. I had found some whole organic chicken’s on sale for 5.00 each. How can you pass that up? I got a ton of chicken broth from it and 5 meals. I froze the chicken broth for future use. I think that you should make the best use out of all of your products. I’ve even taken bones and froze them to add to my pot. Nothing goes to waste. You don’t even have to use whole chickens. A while back our grocery store had a summer blow out sale. Basically, they had chicken breasts, thighs, and legs SUPER CHEAP. You can definitely do that.

I know this isn’t my traditional recipe entry, but I wanted to come back to this and reshare. If you don’t take anything from my blog, I hope that you do take this tip. First off, making your own chicken broth is amazing! Secondly, it really is cost effective. You can multi purpose that chicken. I got several meals from mine. A lot of people are afraid it’s complicated to make, but it really is one of the most simple things you’ll do. Anyway Enjoy and don’t forget to check out the recipe!! It’s tagged in blue at the beginning of the post.

Rocks or Candy?

Normally I wouldn’t post like this, but I have to…this caught my attention and it’s the funniest thing I have ever seen. See these rocks? You wouldn’t believe that they are really chocolate candy pieces would you? They really are!!

My mother in law recently took a trip to Florida. She found these somewhere between here and there and bought them for Coop. She brought them in and gave them to him. She said, here ya go Coop, here’s some rocks. He smiles real big and he says ok, I’ll go add them to my collection. He proceeds to giggle as he pretends to tip toe away. Obviously he had an idea what they were. He ate one and loved them. I tried them too. It’s actually really good!

My kid recently had his room repainted and just “made over”. I decided I wanted to do something special for him. Our lives are going to be changing forever soon and I want for all of our kids to feel important and loved. I like to make these small gestures from the heart. For me this is part of the way I show my love. I think they know that too. Last night when I gave it to him, I put it on his bed and had him come see. He quickly turned back the covers and said oooh nice. Can I go to bed now? He’s such a fun kid. I’m so honored to be his mother. If I could I’d give him the world. He’s the most amazing kid I’ve ever met. I’m so lucky!!!!

Anyway, I really wanted to show you what I had made. I’m wondering…what do you do in your free time?

Bathroom Remodel

We have been going through our house redoing different rooms of our home. I painted the walls and made the pretty sign I hung above the toilet. I was really pleased with how it turned out and I feel like it’s a bathroom we can be proud of. It’s the bathroom downstairs, so the kids use it and so do guests that come to visit. The only thing I wish I could do in the bathroom is figure out a way to have more storage space.

What do you do? Laundry Edition

I’ve had a bad day. It’s one of those days where I need to occupy my mind, because if I don’t, then I might scream and cry. See the problem is C is really struggling in school. It’s not learning that is the issue. He seems to struggle with his teacher. She’s a great woman. I like her in general, as a person. I just think C has some special needs. I’m not talking disabilities…I’m talking about behavioral needs. Even when C was a baby he always needed constant reassurance. He was always outgoing, never shy, but he seems unsure of himself. I’ve had him tested by a psychologist for Autism and ADHD. They’ve said he doesn’t have it. Now they are reevaluating him at 11. I think if he had ADHD he’d have been diagnosed WAY before now. No matter what though, I’m just wanting him to just be happy….healthy…and educated. I’m just really struggling today. What do I do when I struggle? I make stuff! Today I made laundry soap. I started making it years and years ago. It’s the best.
