You may remember I posted here about some homemade laundry detergent I was going to try. I started using my homemade detergent back in December and just ran out this weekend. Actually, I probably could have gotten 3-4 more loads done, but I went ahead and made a new batch. Not bad – 8 months of detergent for $28!! Thats about $3.50 a month and you know it cost more than that for one thing of detergent.
Gotta share this Pinterest pin thats about….Pinterest failures!! I’ve have been laughing hysterically going through the posts on this blog.
I’ve been trying new recipes again and thought I’d share the ones that have turned out very delicious…
Oven-Fried Okra – click link for the recipe from The Spotted Fox
*I’m a big fan of fried okra and thought I’d give this one a try since its a bit healthier and I gotta say it was pretty darn good. Alexandra loved them too. And Levi even liked them!!
Chicken with Basil and Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce – click link to see recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything
*Even David loved this one…you know, he’s a picky eater so any recipe I try that he approves becomes a staple in our house!!
Deep Dark Chocolate Cake – click link to see recipe from Becky Bakes.
*This is a super duper moist cake and the frosting tastes like a mousse! David isn’t a fan of chocolate cake, but he loves it! I brought half of it to work and it was a huge hit!!
*During dinner last night Alex didn’t want her chicken, but we told her she had to eat a few bites if she wanted chocolate cake. She seemed to actually like it after she tried it and when I asked her if she liked it after all she responded very enthusiastically with “No, but I really, really want chocolate cake so I’m gonna eat it!”.
