Amazing Baked Potato Soup

I am always looking for new foods to feed my family. While looking up foods for Saint Patrick's Day I found a recipe for potato soup. That recipe gave me the base and inspiration for this soup! If you are looking for a tasty meal for your family look no further. Even my picky husband who somehow had NEVER had potato soup LOVED THIS!



What you need:

  • 4 Medium Potatoes
  • 32 ounces of chicken broth
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced as fine as you can 
  • 2 cups mixed veggies
  • pepper to taste
  • Aluminum foil
  • 3 Pieces of bacon cooked and cut into pieces

How it is done!

  • 1.Wash your potatoes and wrap them in aluminum foil. Place in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour. When the hour is up take the potatoes out of the oven an unwrap. Cut potatoes in half and let cool enough to peel.Cut the potatoes into small chunks, the smaller you cut them the less cooking time.
  • 2. In a large pot met butter and garlic together for a few minutes on low. You want the garlic to sizzle but you do not want the butter to burn.
  • 3. Add all ingredients(including potatoes) except the veggies to the pot and let simmer on medium for about 30 minutes, stir occasionally. After 30 minutes add the veggies and continue to simmer.
  • 4.Serve topped with cheese, sour cream or any of your favorite toppings.

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.
