Happy Independence Day!

What a great way to start out July. A Celebration and a new air conditioner! We had a quiet day here, besides the throbbing heat.. Chevy Man decided it was just too much and installed a new a/c unit in our front window. I am beyond ecstatic!

I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

This would be Chevy Man loving on Duramax... aww...

Chevy Man operating the grill. We recently received this hand me down from his Mom. We are super happy with it. Someday soon I will be doing a Grill Makeover.

Our simple 4th of July Dinner. I had a big feast planned, but every one's plans fell through. We decided to simplify.

This is the most disgusting looking dessert. Snickers Salad. *Recipe coming soon *

And.... this is the most beautiful new addition to our house. Meet fridigaire.. My new love. haha.

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.
