Christmas Traditions ...

Making Scrabble on this rainy afternoon! This stuff is so good! The recipe has been in my husband's family many years. His mom and dad made it, we make it and our children now make it as adults. It is a Christmas tradition!

A New to Us Low Carb Recipe!

We tried a new low-carb recipe recently that passed both my and my husbands taste requirements.  I found the recipe and after reading it over thought it sounded like something we would enjoy.  Next, I checked the ingredient list to see if I had everything needed (or something I could substitute).  I did so it was time to give it a try!

What did I make … Sour Cream Beef Enchiladas (the recipe can be found HERE.)

Time for New Dish Cloths!

I like to change out my dishcloths about once a year, but I didn't get it done last year.  That means that my dishcloths were 2 years old and they looked it!  No, I'm not going to show you how bad they looked!!! Let me just say that those dishcloths earned their keep!!!

All year long I worked on crocheting dishcloths when I was riding in a vehicle and just stuffed them in a bag.  Recently, I got them all out, worked in any loose ends that I hadn't done yet and took a look at what I had.

I realized that I have a rainbow of colors and I love it!

Adding to My Pantry with a $10 Gift Card

I recently earned a $10 gift card from Swagbucks for a large grocery store chain.  I knew I wanted to use it to add to my pantry so I took a few days to think about how best to turn it into several meal making ingredients.

Here is what I decided on …

Dehydrating Clementine Peel

I found a box of clementine's on sale this week when doing a little grocery shopping.  Both my husband and I like clementine's so we've been eating them for snacks.

My husband asked if I wanted to save the peelings and of course I said yes.  I got out a dish and we began putting the peelings in it each time we ate a clementine. 

Since collecting the peelings from all the clementine is going to be something that stretches out over several days I decided to set the dish of peelings next to our wood stove (which is putting out some nice, warm heat right now) and let them dry naturally.  By doing this, we can continue to add peelings to the dish whenever we need to while the ones already in the dish continue to dry. 

What do I plan to do with the peelings once they're dry?  I'm going to jar them and add them to my next batch of potpourri when I'm ready to put it together. In addition, I'll add some to white vinegar and use for cleaning purposes.

The Answer to 'Can You Guess?'

I gave these clues …

it will be a gift
I haven't made it/them yet
it's not food
the container is half gallon size

There were some really good guesses …

crocheted washcloths
pinecone fire starters
dish towels
fleece blanket
