Time Saving Tips for Turkey Day!

This time of year life is crazy enough without throwing in a home cooked feast. Help save yourself some time and stress with some of these time saving tips.

1.Cut vegitables ahead of time! Vegitables can keep for days pre cut ahead of time. So cut those veggie trays, stuffing ingrediants and more the day before. It will save you from having to get up at 4 am to get that turkey in.

2.Set your dining table the night before! Instead of running incircles as your guests prepair to descend upon you simply spend a few minutes after dinner the night before to place your table cloth and set a beautiful table.

3.Make sure salt and pepper shakers are filled a day or two before hand so that does not come empty int he middle of the meal.

4.Make sure your turkey is defrosted by removing it in plenty of time. Nothing is worse then having a half cooked turley that can postpone your meal.

5.Place all canned goods that will be needed on the counter to save trips to the pantry.

6.Cook Pies a day or two ahead of time. The turkey takes so much time to cook it can often make dinner late or keeping you up going back and forth checking on pies.

Using a couple of these time saving tools can really help you save time which can then be used to spend enjoying this holiday or any holiday with your family.

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

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
