I don't care for the bulk brown sugar at Winco. (I recently heard that brown sugar stays soft if you keep a few marshmellows in it. I don't have that problem, but may try it anyway.)
After years of faithfully saving dead batteries and taking them to the recycling centre in Murray, I get a flyer that says recycle rechargables. I KNEW that, so I called about the others. They just get thrown away. 3 hours saved every year not going to the recycling centre :)
On Monday nights you can buy 4 16oz. smoothies for $10.oo, at Jamba Juice. Summer special from 4-8 p.m.
I was doing a salad bar one day and was out of crutons, so I used Logan's little cheese fish crackers. They were great. Low fat/low calorie, too
I have year round recipes that use sweetened condensed milk. (I love the Key Lime Margarita Pie that I posted.) I buy what I need for the year when they go on salein November for holiday baking. (I paid $.78 a can.) BE SURE TO CHECK THE USE BY DATE. I plan extra money for picking up baking items for the year during holiday time.
LEMI SHINE - A hard water remover sold at Walmart for under $4.oo. It really works great. It is made for dishwashers, and made mine look new.
I also tried the recipe for cleaning drains. Into my kitchen sink I poured (in order) 1/3 cup LEMI SHINE, 1/4 cup baking soda and 2 cups water. I don't know if it cleaned the drain, but the explosion was cool. After the foam goes away, rinse drain well.
I also tried the spray, which worked great! In a squirt bottle mix 1/8 cup LEMI SHINE and 8 oz. of water. Spray on surface. Let set if desired and rinse well. CAUTION - Test to see if spray will cause damage in a smaal area. Although this worked amazingly well on my bathroom granite, it seems to have left a whitiesh look. (I will play with it when I get home.) It worked super on shower doors.
My next post will be my "100th POST". To commemorate (celebrate) I am having a contest. The first week in August I will pick my "TOP 10" posts. Guess what my favourite post is. Comment on the most recent post with your guess. The winner will get a set of 1/4" steel alphbet stamps and a package of washers (used for the washer necklaces and other craft stamping).
I am also putting a set of the steel stamps and washers in "My Favourites" basket. When my blog says that I have 60 followers, I will do a follower drawing of the contents of the basket of some of my favourite things. If you post a vote for my favourite post and sign up to be a follower , you have 2 chances to win.
