Weekend Planning 5.7.10

It's friday.. this I do know. If you've been stopping by my blog this week, you'll have noticed I haven't posted since Monday.. This is very unlike me. BUT, in my defense this has been one of the worst weeks of 2010..

I don't really want to go into details.. I'll just say, car broke, truck broke, financially broke.. times 50. the end.

I have a lot to do to get back on track..

-fix jetta
-cut wood
-paint wood=14 blocks total
-pizza for dinner

-sand blocks
-finishing touches on sisters prom dress
-modge podge paper on blogs
-make stencils
-bb cups and taco cups for dinner

-take mom present
-visit grandma?

I hope all you momma's have a great mothers day!


  1. You, too!

    These weekends sure are busy, aren't they?

    I hope the fixing isn't too terrible financially.

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.
