I Just Won 10 Swag Bucks on

I Just Won 10 Swag Bucks on

Mrs Butterworth eat your heart out.

So we got out of bed today and my sweet Hubby offered to make pancakes and sausage for breakfast.

 But wouldn't you know we were out of syrup... No way was I gonna miss on him making breakfast on a Saturday morning. I know that with my food storage on hand and access to the Internet there must be a way to make homemade pancake syrup. So this is what I found.

1 cup white sugar
1cup brown sugar
1/2tsp salt
1cup water
1/2 tsp maple extract or flavoring
1 tbsp butter

1. combine white and brown sugar i a saucepan,add salt and water.
2. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat.
3. Add maple extract or flavoring.
4.Cool and Serve.

It turned out great! we may never buy syrup in the bottle again.

Recipes needed

Well you all know that I shop the sales and use coupons to save money. Thanks to Kroger's sale last week buy 10 for 10 and get five dollars off. And the fact that I had coupons for cream of soups I now have a rather large stockpile of cream of chicken, cream of celery, and cream of cheddar cheese soup. I know some of you are asking," What about cream of mushroom?" At my house mushroom is an ugly word.
 Now I am in need of some good recipes to use my bargains in, so please if you have a favorite recipe using these soups just drop them in the comment box.

 I have been blog hopping this morning and found this quote at


Women are angels. And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly..... on a broomstick! We are flexible like that!


 I just happened up on this blog today, I thought that Vee Had a great idea check out her blog I enjoyed it.
Here's my new door mat. You can see that each little trench is filled with snow and sand. The flat monkey was not tracked in; he actually lives here now.

Now this is one of my favorite solutions! A plastic boot tray filled with rocks. It really helps collect the boots and allows them to drip dry right there. After a couple of weeks, I rinse out the sand and start all over again. No, it's not my idea; I found it in a magazine (wish that I remembered which one). I know that Martha Stewart uses this idea with old cookie sheets, but I didn't want to risk the rust from metal, hence the plastic.

I hope that my reward for having a productive day at know, actually getting some things done, will be visiting you. Catch you later!
