Hey everyone. I’ve been gone for awhile but I haven’t been idle. Nope, I’ve been working hard. What at you may ask? Well, Little Man and I have been attending a Montessori class on Saturday’s. My wonderful husband has completely embraced his bicycling hobby. He commutes to work by bicycle and then goes on great big rides on the weekend. I’ve also been working on expanding our product line with our eBay store. We’ve had appointments, taxes returns are almost due, and the house does have to stay in some type of livable arrangement. Thankfully, I’ve fully embraced something myself. I’ve fallen in love with Evernote. I’m able to keep notes on supplies, recipes, to-do lists, homeschool ideas, gift ideas (a favorite feature). I can even set reminders attached to notes. Like buy Little Man his birthday present! Anyway, it’s back to work on everything but be sure to check out Evernote. The free version is great but the Premium version allows you to upload lots more awesome stuff. Have a great day everyone!
Hi there and welcome to your Turkey Dinner Survival Guide! You’ll get a timeline for cooking everything yourself in one day. I usually cook a 16 pound bird for our family but you can use this for any size bird (as long as you adjust the cooking time for the bird). I’ll be giving you a .pdf version that I personally use as well as a .doc version you can edit to suit your own family’s needs. You’ll also get every recipe I use when I cook up a big turkey dinner with the fixings.
Our Turkey Dinner Includes:
- Roasted Turkey
- Mashed Potatoes
- Pumpkin Pie
Now I do cheat when it comes to the stuffing and the gravy. I like to use Stove Top Sage Stuffing and McCormick Turkey Gravy. If you are brave and make your stuffing from scratch, please make sure to take that into consideration when editing the .doc version. If you make your gravy from scratch, good for you! I think that’s awesome. If you keep running out of gravy though, since birds really don’t produce much, add a packet gravy to your homemade gravy and it will go very far and still taste amazing. To save space on your stove, after the gravy has been made, put it in a small crock pot to keep warm.
So, without further ado… click below to download either the .pdf or .doc versions of my Turkey Dinner Survival Guide!
Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Christmas Day. We had a wonderful time watching little man open all his presents. We also enjoyed a low fuss Turkey Dinner. Stay tuned for my Turkey Dinner Survival Guide. In the mean time, did you get any great kitchen presents? This year I gave some jars of my Italian Seasoning Mix with printouts of a few recipes it can make. Keep this seasoning in mind for a quick gourmet gift for every foodie all year round! Just make up a batch of the Italian Seasoning Mix and store in a spice jar. Print out the Recipe cards and cut them to 3×5 size (one would be folded in half). Wrap up with a pretty bow or in a nice bag and you have a wonderful gift!
While many people are fortunate enough to own their own homes, some people rent. I’ve rented a few homes in the past many years and one of the things that we’ve always done is fill out a condition report on the home when we move in so that when we move out, we can prove that the stain on the carpet (hole in the wall, tear in the screen…) was already there and we won’t be charged for the damage. I’d advise anyone moving into a rental house or apartment to fill out a form like this to help cover them for any damage charges (or at lease fewer charges) when they move out.
If you would like a copy of an Inventory and Condition report, click here and you will be taken to see a free PDF that I created. And always!! Always!! Keep a copy of every file and document that’s signed between the owner/property management and yourself!!
Hello everyone! My friend Valerie recently posted a great post with some WordPress tips. See here to check out her awesome post! One of those was to find your broken links. I had no idea if I had any broken links on my site so I decided to give it a shot. What a surprise to find that it said: “Processed 1538 web pages, found 48 broken links“! After trying to find and fix a few links I ran the check again and found I reduced the broken links to 24. Woo Hoo! Progress! Still not done though. I ran it a third time and got my broken links down to 6!! Big progress. I did one last round of clean up and ran the search to see if I got it all. I didn’t. I got it down to 4. Ok, Ok, Ok… So I’m a perfectionist at times and I worked at fixing or removing those last four. I promise this is the last attempt at it today! I ran it and here’s what it said: “Processed 1538 web pages, found 0 broken links”
I finally got them all!! Woo Hoo! The most stubborn links I had to remove I finally found in the comments! Who would have thought? Well, I feel much better that my entire site is broken link free as of now. I’ll try to keep up on the broken links on a regular basis. Also, if you ever find a broken link, let me know please. 😉
