SHAME ON ME. In my defense, chevy man ruined that chili, btw, how gross is that? Can a man seriously NOT find the plastic wrap...

Did you have any food waste this week?


  1. Hi- found you from the BHSJW blog hop. I'm a new follower- hope you'll stop by and visit my blog.

    Man, I have so much food waste. My family DOES NOT eat leftovers. So either I end up throwing the food out right after dinner, or I feel guilty and save it, then throw it out a few days later. Sigh.... guess I need to work on the portions I make for dinner.

    Anyway- have a great week!

  2. Thanks for the follow. I am now following you too! Have a great day! :)


  3. Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from the Catch a Wave Wednesday. Would love a visit and follow back on my blog: Thanks!

  4. I usually go for making too little than too much, and just keep snacks or dessert around for any little empty spots. We don't have a microwave so its hard to reheat things a lot. I do make extra of, and keep, my unused mashed potatoes and fry them for breakfast the next morning tho. MMM!

  5. We were out of town last week, but the week before we had to throw away leftover Chinese, half a loaf of unused bread, and a quarter gallon of milk. Oh, and ants invaded our pantry thanks to our great drought in Texas, and we threw away at least $50 of stockpiled foods that were infested...

  6. Thanks for visiting, I am returning the follow. I try not to waste. I sometime use leftover veggies and turn them into soup or throw them in a stir fry.

  7. I hate to waste food, but we always do!
    On a complete side note, I have that exact same Food Network container, I love mine!
    Great blog, look forward to reading more :)

  8. Thank you so much for stopping by!
    I have just started blogging 2 months ago and I'm so happy to get new readers! It gives me inspiration to keep writing...
    I bet you feel the same way.

    Loved your blog, btw :)
    Have a nice day!

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.
