Crockpot shipwreck

One of my favorite meals is cowboy potatoes. I could eat them for every single meal of the day for months, lol. So when I found this recipe, I was in heaven! and a little jealous that I hadn't thought of it myself :)

6 med potatoes
1 lb hamburger
can of creamed corn
1/2 med onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup
salt & pepper
garlic powder

cut up 3 potatoes and put in bottom of crockpot

brown your hamburger

next start the layering. hamburger, onion and corn

next, rest of potatoes and soup. sprinkle on your seasonings. cook on low 6-8 hours.

  1. Is that an oven roasting bag? Do you have to use one when you do the recipe or is it just for easy clean up? Looks good! I may have to try this on Wendell one night. :)


  2. it's a crockpot liner actually. for $1 for 6 they make my life so much easier! they are for clean up. You should, its AWESOME!!

  3. I make that quite often, but I leave out the corn. YUM! :-)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
