I’m a Midwestener living in Texas.
I rather be barefoot (not pregnant) and in the kitchen. My mortgage, however, prefers to be paid, so work I must.
I’m currently under-employed.
I take endless selfies with my sunglasses on.
My hair has changed colors 9 times this year.
It’s been said that I don’t always play well with others.
I have two dogs that make me laugh. Except for when they kill things. Then they make me puke.
I’m single. I don’t do much about changing that status. I think about it. I ponder it. I sign up for online dating services and then am blown away by the single ass clowns that are in my area.
Much to my mothers chagrin, I occasionally have what could loosely be considered a “potty mouth.” Lucky for me, she is far away and can’t shove a bottle of soap in my mouth.
I really don’t try to be sarcastic, but it just oozes out of me.
If you don’t like me, that’s ok. In fact, I probably don’t like you anyways.
If I do like you, I will cook for you.
Pretty Simple Stuff Here:
1 Box of Borax
1 Box of Laundry Soda (kinda like baking soda, but not)
2 Bars of Fells Naptha Soap
Are you sitting down? This is so easy you might need to read it twice.
Step One: Grate soap
Step Two: Dump grated soap into a trash bag
Step Three: Empty two other boxes of stuff in same trash bag
Step Four: Shake the trash bag like a polaroid picture
Step Five: Put mixture into containers
Step Six: Use 2 TBL of mixture in your machine BEFORE you put the clothes in and AFTER you have started filling up washer with water.
Questions that I’ve been asked:
1.) Will this work in a Front Loader? I don’t know. I don’t have one.
2.) Do I need to use fabric softener? I don’t know if YOU need to use fabric softener, but I do.
3.) Does this work? I think so.
4.) Is it worth the time to make it instead of just buying a big ole tub of detergent? Hard to tell. Kept me occupied, and these days, thats all that matters.
It has been said that my dogs are rather spoiled.
I can’t disagree.
Last night, I made them Halloween Themed Dog Treats. First reason primairly because I was bored, and my butt didn’t need the triple chocolate brownies that I really wanted to make. Second reason, I’m less than flush with cash right now and I needed bribes.
With all of that being said, I present to you:
PUP-kin Pup Treats
-for the dog that needs more treats
1/2 can of Pumpkin Puree. Don’t use the Pumpkin Pie stuff. No need. Seriously, don’t waste your money.
1/4 tsp of salt (Incredibly optional- truthfully, I forgot it.)
2 TBL of Peanut Butter (any kind will do- my labs got Crunchy)
2.5 C of Flour
1/4 of water- hold off to the side.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. With a mixer, or kitchen aid with paddle attachment, mix together the flour, eggs, pumpkin, peanut butter, salt, and cinnamon. THEN, start adding in water a little at a time. You do NOT want this to be too wet. It will be a pain to roll out.
3. Take the dough, throw it on the counter and get rolling. I did a mixture of thick cookies for the big dog and smaller ones for the less fat dog. You will get about 30-35 cookies from this. Don’t waste the dough-you can re-roll it MANY MANY TIMES.
3. Bake in preheated oven until hard, about 40 minutes. I had two cookie sheets filled with treats so I rotated the sheets at the 20 minute mark.
