Anywho, I made up this recipe trying to eat a bit healthier. And it turned out! Who knew?
Den has on a few rude occasions said and I quote his manner lacking self, "I thought I was going to shit out my lower intestines after that meal you made." He's funny but still lacking tack. Honestly, I don't take offense to comments like these. It can be that bad when I cook.
Fakin' Fried Rice
3 cups of shredded cauliflower
2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon bacon grease(this is optional but it adds flavor)
1 small chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 of a bag of frozen peas and carrots
1/4 of a bag of broccoli
1/4 to 1/2 cup of soy sauce
Heat the veg oil and the bacon grease add the onion and garlic, saute until the onion is soft.
Heat the peas and carrots and broccoli in the microwave until warm(it doesn't cook well if the veggies are cold) add them with the shredded cauliflower to pan. Stir well.
Push everything off to the side in the pan.
Add your eggs to open side of your pan and scramble until completely cooked.
Mix thoroughly and add soy sauce.
This turned out so well that Den ate two plates of it. That never happens! And there were no intestine jokes afterward.
This would also be a great recipe to add leftovers to. Maybe some chicken or some ham would be great. I'm on a roll, people!

Anywho, I have another tip for you when you travel. Pack a few dryer sheets with your clothes. It keeps everything smelling AWESOME and clean. I may stuff a few dryer sheets in our pockets and quit doing laundry. It could happen.
When we were in Vegas, I only used a small free carry-on for my clothes. I didn't have to reuse any shirts but I had to wear my pants twice. I hung them on the rack behind the door and put a dryer sheet in the pockets. I also rubbed the pants with the sheet. This worked perfect.

The garage sale season is pretty much over in this area. We didn't find anything spectacular this year but I have managed to pick up a few cheap frames for Anna's room makeover.
I found this picture for $79.99. It is what I was looking for but again, I'm cheap. I found a picture of a flower at the Goodwill for $9.99. The only problem was the stem of the flower was green. My wonderful MIL, Donna, took it and is going to clean it up and color the stem. She is a wonderful artist and loves to help. I have been blessed. She also loves to get caught up in my hair brained schemes. I wanted black and white photos for the walls but my scanner stopped working. Hey, the printer is fine and I'm not replacing it. So Donna offered to scan a bunch of pictures and put them in the frames that I collected. She seemed happy about doing my chores. She is a gift.

In order to come close to 10% off of the bills, I will need to shave off $250ish. That won't be easy. Here's is the tally from the last time that I posted about it. And I'll just let you know if I lose any weight, I'm not posting what 10% of my weight is. Fat shaming won't work with me!
So who is with me? Wanna lose weight and gain money? Seriously, I need a fat wallet and skinny waist-not the other way around. Just post about it and I'll link to it.

I still make my own laundry detergent, its kind of like the hand soap that I made. I use bars of soap and anything else(borax and washing soda) that I have to throw in the pot with hot water, and then blend it until its gloopy. I add 3 tablespoons of my gloop to an empty laundry detergent bottle and then top it off with hot water. I was putting the 3 tablespoons in the washing machine in the beginning but sometimes it would leave a residue on the clothes. Predissolving my gloop ended any problems that I was having.
My homemade detergent didn't smell like anything though. Mind you, it got everything super clean but didn't have a fresh smell. Then I had an AH-HA moment(not the band but the brain), why not stuff a dryer sheet into the bottle, add the detergent/gloop and then add hot water. It works like a charm! Just let it sit for a day so the scent can disperse. And I bet this would work great for detergent that you didn't like the smell of. I would empty a bit from the bottle, add a dryer sheet and then hot water. You could even dissolve powdered laundry detergent with a dryer sheet in an old bottle. I may have to experiment with this one.
So there you go, cheap Gain.

I'm a fun person but I'm pretty sure that I don't come across as the type that wanted to get high and have a threesome with a father-son combo.
But of course, Den had to outdo me.
We went to an awesome Mexican restaurant and the waiter was so in love with Den. Never mind the fact that I sitting there. He couldn't stop batting his eyes at Den. I didn't laugh until the waiter offered to get a wonderful sauce for Den's fajita. I told Den, he probably shouldn't eat it.
THEN, I left Den to play a machine and when I came back some woman was leaning on him and asking how to play slot machines. Really?!? I didn't say anything to her but told Den where I was going to play a machine. She shot me a dirty look for talking to him. Idiot. Den told me later that she was nice and just wanted his help in learning how to play but she had a shuttle to catch and was leaving soon. He's so dumb. A few hours later, I saw her playing two machines at once. She obviously didn't have to catch a shuttle and Den must have been a good teacher.
And I think that's all I got for you.
