Creating in the kitchen again

Thursday, April 17, 2014
I was looking in my cupboard for a jar of spaghetti sauce and found that I did not have any. We next would be to make my own for I do keep lots of can tomato product on hand at all times. Well I went to the spice cupboard and found that I had none of the spice need to make a good sauce. What was I do to, as I said I keep lot of different types of tomatoes products on hand.
This is what I made:
1 - 16 oz can of Fire Roasted tomatoes
2 - 16 oz cans of Italian style tomatoes
1 - 8 oz can tomato past
1 - 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 -  6 oz can mushrooms diced in small pieces
Place one can at a time in a blender or food mill and  turn them in to a crushed texture, do this with all three cans of tomatoes. place all in a pot and simmer for 15 to 30 minutes. To night I am not adding the mushrooms for my youngest son is allergic to them.

I will be adding some meatball and we will have spaghetti and meatballs with sauce.

Grocery list and menu planning

Friday, March 21, 2014
We have to get back in to the planing of our two week of meals with what is on sale at the store that we shop at. I work hard to make sure that I have lots of canned tomato and other things stocked up in the pantry so that all we really have to buy is meat and anything that is on sale. Must gets for the two week period are lunch items for hubby He need lunch meat, cheese, bread, fruit and chips. I keep at least one extra bag of the chips on hand as well as lunch meat.
I have never been to good at the planing of meals so my son helps me a lot with that. We are going to have to do better than we did in the past. We try to make it a meat, starch and veggie for our evening meals but it is the breakfast and lunch for us that is the hard part.(us is my son and I) By the time I get up at about 8 and take my morning pill(no not that one) wait an hour and take my Isotonix Vitamins and all that is like 10 in the morning.This last week I have been sleeping in till any where from 9 to 10 in the morning so everything is even later. I guess I am going to have to start setting an alarm to get me up at 8 since the three dog alarm seems to have broke.
With spring now here I hope that I will be able to get my garden going soon. I still have to get the dirt for the garden box so that I can plant what it is I am going to plant. Not 100% sure of everything that is going to be going into the garden, but I would like to be getting a move on with it. I have three Jalapenos in my green house now and they are doing good. My bell peppers are not coming up at all, I thing the seeds I have are no good. It really is time for me to update all my seeds some of them are 5 or 6 years old. I still have a few week to get it all done.
As most business go, slow to start with. i am still at it everyday working on what I can to build my business. I listen to audios and watch videos to learn what I can. I have learned that my web site or web portal will grow and change with what you are looking at so if you are looking at a lot of the Motive cosmetics that is what it will show you when you log on to the site. I look at so much stuff I think it get confused at what I am looking for. Well it is time for me to get to work but taking my vitamins and then listen or watching something.


Slow Week

Monday, March 17, 2014
Well it was a slow week here. My eggs in the incubator all died, need to work on that. We got two to three inches of very wet snow yesterday. My business is growing very slow but the only way to grow it is to work at it everyday, I am doing that. I am going to be working on my goals and time line over the next week so that I have something to look at to keep me on track. It is hard to grow a business when you are the only one in the area doing what you do. I am the first in my area to be doing this and would love to get others on board so that we can grow the business of MarketAmerica/Shop.com all over the United States. It is a great way to save gas and time running to a bunch of stores when you can do it all from your own home.
Well I better get to my goals and all that. Write more later.

Creating in the kitchen again

Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Tonight my son and I decided that we wanted Hamburger Helper but since we do not buy the boxes of that stuff we make our own. Tonight I wanted a taco one but instead we made a Italian one.
Here it is:
Homemade hamburger helper
1 1/2  to 2 lbs hamburger
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 can Italian  tomatoes
2 8 oz tomato sauce
1 tablespoon onion flakes
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tea spoon olive oil
12 oz dry pasta (we used Rotini)
3 cups water
Brown the hamburger and drain off grease. Add all the rest of the stuff and simmer for about 30 minutes stirring often.
Top with ricotta and Parmesan cheese to taste and enjoy.

Now on a different note the incubator is still going and there are some of the eggs that are growing. I have only candled a few and without having a window in the from it is hard to really keep an eye on it. They should be hatching around the 14th or so. I have someone that is going to buy them form me so that is a good thing.

My business is grow very slowly but that is ok too, for nothing happens over night. remember you can  save money shopping at shop.com


well it is official, I am a business owner

I am now a business owner and as such I hope to be able to tell you about all the wonderful products that there is. I use what I sell and I love what I use. I have been able to use 4 of the Sanp products and love them. The dishwasher liquid does not suds up like a lot of them but then you do not need suds to clean your dishes. I did a greasy lid to a pot that had bacon grease on it and then washed some glass and metal and they are just as clean as if I did them with something else.
I have done two loads of laundry with the laundry detergent and the fabric soften that Snap has and it is not over powering like so many on the market. It has a very light scent that I can tolerate since so many of the scents out there through me into a asthma attack. To top it all off you use so little. I also used the all purpose cleaner to clean my kitchen and it has a very light berry scent that is great and not over powering for me to use. I clean stuff that I have not cleaned in so long that really needed it. Everything came very clean and the best thing is I get to use the all purpose cleaner on my pets if I need to, try that with the stuff you get in the store.
There are so many product out there that are not good for the environment and yet we still use them. I had to stop using so many of them since I found out I had asthma that I was down to clean with vinegar and baking soda just to not go into an asthma attack.
A friend of mine wrote on his blog about another product that I will be using very shortly  OPC-3.
