I wish I’d never bothered purchasing a bunch of diaper rash cream. I remember it was on sale in Wisconsin at the Amish store so I couldn’t resist. Needless to say, I didn’t need it much. But if I had known a cheap, more natural option was already in my kitchen…
Oh, the things we learn after the fact.
Check out this cup. It’s paper and I threw it in the compost when I finished with it.
Why don’t more places use these?
I’ve never purchased a dish washer before. We always washed by hand until the last two houses we rented. And then I fell in love with convenience…
The former owners of the house took the dishwasher so we hit the stores on Black Friday this year.
My mother shared an article with me by Will Dunham from the Sun Sentinel published Thursday, December 18, 2014.

My mother-in-law, the cooking genius, showed me this. It was so tasty, I had to freeze the rest of the turkey after Thanksgiving to try it myself! But if your Thanksgiving turkey is long gone, you can use the holiday turkey leftovers as well.
Times like today, we really do miss Wisconsin!

Enjoy some winter photos where we celebrated last year! It was like being in a post card, and by far my best holidays ever!
