Throwback Thursday

If you are a stay-at-home parent, a homeschooler, are self employed or otherwise work from home, you know what I mean. The outside world sometimes has a very wrong idea of how you spend your time. RancherMan & I are self employed so our work is all done from our Homestead. But oftentimes to those around us the perception is that we’ve got all the free time in the world!

Have you experienced the same thing? Yeah, I know…

You know those dates stamped on packages of food? What do they mean? It’s confusing alright. Is the food ‘expired’? Is it safe to eat? Will it make you sick if you eat it anyway? I always wondered that too.

Then I did some research and was very surprised at what I found. To celebrate Throwback Thursday I’m sharing these tips today. Come see!

Y’all know I have an environmental bend. It’s important to me to tread lightly on this beautiful blue planet of ours. But like most things in life, we’re all in different places. My journey may not be your journey, and THAT’S OK! We all need to pursue those causes we’re passionate about & offer our efforts & talents to those causes to make the world a better place #amiright?

On this Throw-back Thursday, read my thoughts about our different journeys.

Just doing things because ‘that’s the way we’ve always done it’ is almost guaranteed to cost you some big-time bucks. Sometimes all it takes is keeping your eyes open and being open to making a change if a better deal presents itself. And sometimes the savings from that one little change lines your pockets month after month too!

Today in honor of Throwback Thursday I’m sharing one of my most popular posts. Are you getting your money’s worth, or paying extra for NOTHING??!!

Today’s throwback Thursday post is about one of my favorite things to cook in my solar oven. ‘Boiled’ eggs! I was amazed when I learned you could cook those eggs without any water at all, right in their cardboard carton!

Throwback Thursday: Recipe

by Texas Homesteader ~

Today’s throwback Thursday post is aaaaaall about bread. Y’all know RancherMan’s a certified bread-a-holic. He loves bread in all its forms. And I have several bread recipes I make for him.

One of our favorites (and one of the easiest) is a no-knead skillet bread flavored with fresh rosemary. Its simple, delicious and the texture is delightful. We like to infuse olive oil with various herbs & spices for dipping. Delicious and fancy enough for company!

That handsome RancherMan of mine sure does love bread. But he loves MY homemade bread the most! Awwww…. Especially since I finally learned to make a soft & fluffy sandwich bread from scratch. But these days I’m more likely to be making that recipe using some oat flour. My oat flour is just oatmeal that I’ve ground into a flour using a coffee grinder.

I know how healthy oats are for you, and now I’ve included it in my homemade sandwich bread!
