I love to serve homemade biscuits for their no-rise, quick baking simplicity. Recently I decided to whip up these cheddar biscuits because most of the ‘fat’ requirement in a typical biscuit recipe is just comprised of sour cream in this recipe. It adds a tangy creaminess that we love.
I know several people that are struggling financially right now. Some because they went a little overboard with personal purchases I guess. But some are struggling due to circumstances completely unforeseen & out of their control.
Maybe they find themselves with a large unexpected medical bill. Or maybe they’re laid off, either temporarily or permanently. And BOOM! Financial adjustments must be made sooner rather than later.
Of course families are varied and the journey to a more secure financial future will be different based on each family’s circumstances.
It’s been raining for weeks here in NE Texas. Everything is a muddy mess. EVERYTHING!
Yes, it’s true that we’ll be begging for this moisture when the summer months come. But whether it’s no rain or too much rain – neither extreme is desirable. I sure wish Mother Nature would get a little better moderated. But these extremes… Ugh.
So today’s 5 Frugal Things is aaaaaall about how we’ve saved money, even with such inclement weather. Come along and see the 5 frugal things we did this week to save some cold, hard cash.
I’ve written before about making a diaper wreathfor our neighbor’s baby shower. The gift was well received and was initially used right there, right then for some eye-catching decoration during the baby shower.
Not only that, but it also served as decoration in the nursery before the baby was born. And then after the baby was born, all of these items included in my diaper wreath gift could be actually used for the baby. Gotta love it!
But now my sweet little niece & her hubby were expecting their first baby – a baby girl. I really wanted to make a diaper wreath for them as well.
They loved it, and I think it turned out really cute.
You say you’re hosting a party for family and friends but hate all the waste you know it will produce? Well worry not, there are easy ways to host a low-waste party.
My family gathers here at the Homestead every year to celebrate something we’ve named ‘RanchFest’. It’s held on the anniversary of the date RancherMan & I purchased our little piece of NE Texas paradise. But in our family we all consider it our own little family reunion.
I’ve found there are a few things to remember that are easy to implement and it makes a HUGE difference in the amount of trash our gathering ends up producing. Maybe you can use some of these tips at your own gathering too.
