A Little Homemade Goodness

These past few weeks have taken a real toll on my pantry, freezers,and counter jars. As you know my Mom has been ill in the hospital for over a year now, but the last few weeks have been really bad. So I have been been not around the house,or the farm as much as I like to. Thus also meaning that everything was not getting a replenish like I usually do.
Today I came home from the hospital at lunch time and due to the rain I was not able to do anything outdoors. HB is working night shift so I decided to go to the Kitchen and work as he slept.
I got busy and made up a batch of brown sugar as I was all out.
I made a batch of laundry soap. I also put laundry into the washer.
I put on a mason jar of Vanilla on as I do not have to much left.
I made supper of baked chicken thighs with dipping sauce and baked potatoes, with carrots.
I made a batch of raspberry cookies.
And I was done......
I set the table and put supper on it, the weeones will be getting off the bus anytime now and HB and the weeones will eat and HB will drop them off at my inlaws on his way into work. I am heading back to the hospital and will pick them up later tonight.

Please put my Mother into your prayers.


  1. You did keep busy in the kitchen! Everything sounds delicious!

    Your mother is in my prayers.

  2. I pray your mother gets well. That has to be so hard on you and your family. Okay, you got my curiosity up. You "made a batch of brown sugar". How do you do this? And what does it mean to put on a mason jar of vanilla? This is new to me. I hope you don't mind my asking. I am always looking for new ways to do things. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  3. Thanks for the info. I will have to give them both a try.

  4. I also am curious about making brown sugar.

    I hope that your mom is doing better. I am praying for her.
