Spring is finally here and I'm so excited! Spring for me means clothes drying on the line outside, warmer weather, staying light outside longer, flip-flops, short sleeves, my birthday ( I'm getting sooooooo old! ), jelly beans, springtime Oreos,......how did I get started on food?? Oh, yeah.....I'm pregnant. :)
Nothing much new is going on around here. I did have my monthly baby check-up a few days ago and thank the Lord, everything still seems to be fine. Won't be long now and I'll be going every 2 weeks. :)
I did try a homemade dishwasher detergent recently, but I'm not sure if I'm totally happy about it. It tends to make my dishes cloudy. Has anyone else had that problem? The recipe I used called for 1 part Borax and 1 part washing soda. I've had streaky dishes before with name brand stuff from the store so what is the lesser of the 2 evils? Eating/drinking out of cloudy dishes from the store brand or from the stuff you make at home? *sigh* They both sound distasteful to me.
Speaking of recipes, I do have a pizza crust recipe that I'm quite happy with. "Happy" because this one actually rises for me. :) You can look it over to see if it's something that would be worth a try. (NOTE: I do make it with 3 1/4 C of white whole wheat flour instead of part wheat/part all-purpose. I also increase the salt to 2 tsp instead of 1 tsp ).
Clint and I also put up a bunch of organic carrots I got free the other day. I peeled, chopped, cooked, pureed, and froze them while he sat on the floor playing with the peelings. :) Some of them will be used for part of Clint's lunch and the rest for various recipes in the near future.
All for now! Need to hang a load of clothes on the line before it gets too late.
