Home made dog food toppers Kitchen Mash up

so when I give my dogs just dry food with nothing with it, I get a look of “what, am I some kind of animal?”

So I usually top it with a small portion of wet food, but that really isn’t all that good for them so I make additional toppers for them.

Some time of pumpkin/squash , banana ( using up so they don’t go bad) , and left over rice if we have it.  I cook all the items then add it with the wet food and mix together.

Pumpkin helps with their digestion, and the 16 yr JRT mix can use all the help he can get

 

 

 

Stupid Arse Spiders….yuk

Yesterday I wanted to plug in my car, I walk out and nearly run into a black widow, YES, freaking black widow spider in a big ass web from the garage to the front of my car…so I figure I will go around to the other side, and there is ANOTHER freaking spider web with a black widow spider in it, so I turned around and went back in the house…I complained to my husband and he went out and plugged it in.  Such a wonderful hubby!

don’t fall for “convenience”

in real speak that is “paying more for less” great example “baby carrots”  just buy a bunch of regular carrots.  Cut and chop them yourself…KEEP the peel…..it is where most of the good stuff is.  Buying prepped carrots hurts your bottom line and your health.

Just take a few minutes to wash them before eating if you don’t go organic

Organic Authority” magazine reports that carrots contain a high degree of phytonutrients, many of which are found in the skin or immediately beneath it. Consuming phytonutrients leads to a number of health benefits, including lessening your risk of cancer and boosting your immune response.

Get Crunching For Your Health

The U.S. Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Database doesn’t break down the nutritional value of peeled versus unpeeled carrots, but notes that raw carrots are a healthy item. One cup of chopped carrots has just 52 calories, less than a gram of fat and 3.6 grams of dietary fiber. Carrots are also a valuable source of calcium, potassium and a number of vitamins. They also provide beta carotene, which improves eye and skin health while improving your immune system.

More Laundry savings secrets :)

I recently bought Organic Eco Wool Dryer Balls – 6 Pack – 100% Handmade, Fair Trade, Organic, No Lint – Premium Quality from amazon.  I LOVE them, they are little wooly balls and the help to fluff up your laundry and cut your drying time.

Remember, I dry my Jeans and Towels outside when I can, to almost dry, then I throw them in the dryer, these balls help to make them fluffy and dry a little quicker.

On regular clothes I think I save about 25% on time, with all the laundry that goes on here that adds up!  If I do good clothes I will rip a dryer sheet in half to help with static cling saves money here also.

Also if you wear something for half day, and you didn’t get it dirty or sweaty, either just hang back up in closet or if you MUST wash, then use the spin and rinse cycle.  The less you wash your clothes the longer they last, saving money on clothes, and water and electric bills.

The biggest saver of all, now that it is summer, let the SUN dry your clothes!
