Mixing powdered milk.


I have had a hard time getting the husband to adjust to powdered milk but then I found that I was mixing it all wrong.  I watched a great youtube video and remembered this is exactly how Mom made it back when I was a child in the 60's.  So, I decided to add 1 tsp of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla and put it in the fridge overnight.  Then I mixed that with about 2 or 3 quarts of regular milk.  This has really helped to make our milk last longer.

The grandson loves it when I mix it with nestle quik, daughter loves it with cereal, and I've used it for both baking and making yogurt with it this week.  I still have a problem with the husband sticking his nose between his eyebrows when he drinks it, so he just drinks the regular milk. I think he just has too many bad memories ha ha. 

It's  really helping extend our milk and keeping us out of the store.  We need to flatten the curve! 

Did you get this book? 

I wanted to bring this book to your attention again today in case you didn't get this book downloaded yesterday.  I started reading it last night and it's a gem!  So many helpful hints that we can still use today.

Free Kindle Books for Today 3/31/20 plus Another Find, and Don't Cry over Spilled Milk!

Free Kindle Books and deals for today 3/31/20!  Make sure you check the price before you buy, Amazon prices can change frequently. If you don’t have a Kindle you can download your favorite Kindle Book on any tablet or smartphone with a free Kindle app.



So,I sat thinking yesterday where I could find more food (junk) and it hit me there was some in the van!  When Grandma and Grandpa take and pickup grandkids to and from school, you need food ready.  Nothing makes a cranky kid happy fast is something to sweet to eat.  I was so happy to find more!  I think that's it though, I've exhausted my stash.

Don't cry over spilled milk!  

The moans that have come out of my kitchen lately!  Yep, working in the kitchen has brought some mishaps.  I've burnt a pan (it's soaking in the sink), spilled dry milk. and turned over the sweetener bag.  Oh I have also broken two glasses and a cup!  

You would think I'm a nervous sort with the virus that we are having, but really it's nothing new.  I've been doing this all my life.  It's just that I'm realizing just how clumsy I am.  That sweetener we use is in short supply, that dry milk was a little costly, and I'm so glad we have a stash of glasses and coffee cups because we are going to need them!  

I'll try to be more careful and slow down but I just can't take the time to cry over spilled milk.  I've got too much to do.  What about you?

Free Kindle Books and Deals for Today 3/30/20 Plus Hidden Treasures and Online New Release Movies!

Free Kindle Books and deals for today 3/30/20!  Make sure you check the price before you buy, Amazon prices can change frequently. If you don’t have a Kindle you can download your favorite Kindle Book on any tablet or smartphone with a free Kindle app.


If you seen my post on Facebook you realized that we got a little excited when we found a bag of Reese's Peanut butter cups hidden in the 4 wheeler.  I put it there after Halloween last year (date still good till August and it's been cold).  That was a lot of fun!  It's the little things!  

Now, I'm trying to think if I have anything else hidden.

We try to stay out of the grocery stores as much as possible and have been ordering online more.  Even postal stamps from the USPS site.  The more your out there needlessly, the more you are exposed.   I might be looking for chocolate online soon.  


The Call of the WIld onward

For the last two weekends the grandkids and I have watched new release movies through Amazon, Onward ($19.99) and  The Call of the Wild ($14.99).  They were both great movies but they loved Onward the best and I loved The Call of the Wild best. 

The price to own the movies is about what you would pay for your tickets but you make that up not buying anything at the concession stand. That alone saves a fortune!   We microwaved our popcorn in a bag (recipe coming later).  Frugal Bonus:  I was able to pay for one with my $25.00 Amazon card I earned through Swagbucks.
