Ahhhhhhh!!!........Make it go away!

       So if you are anything like me you bought a turkey that is WAY to big for your family.  So here we were 5 days after Thanksgiving and I STILL have left over turkey.  A couple of bitter cold nights gave me the idea that I should make some tasty turkey noodle soup.  So I thought I would share with you my recipe in case you are left with more turkey then your stomachs can handle.


TASTY TURKEY NOODLE SOUP
Ingrediants
12 cups of water
Chicken bouillon
Left over celery stocks
2 cups Carrots
4 cups left over turkey
1/2 bag of egg noodles
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning


This recipe can be made in two different ways, in a pot or in a crockpot.  The recipe will be the same regardless. However if you chose to make this in a crockpot reserve noodles till about an hour before you will serve it.  To make the soup is simple dice your carrots, celery and turkey into bite size pieces.  Prepare Your water with your chicken bouillon to the package directions.  Place the remaining ingredients into your pot or crockpot.  If you are preparing this on the stove turn on Medium and bring to a low boil.  Then turn to a simmer till the carrots are fork tender.

Try Turkey Pot Pie as well. Just heat some butter (yum) haha in a pan throw chopped turkey, cooked rice, frozen veggies and mix some condensed soup with milk till creamy into the pan and bam... Next pour it into a greased pan, cover with pie pastry and cook till pastry is golden brown. :) It's a casserole that goes weel with just about any leftovers.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
