How to cook a turkey


If you follow me on twitter you might have seen I made my very first turkey. I've never had the need to make one, but my grandma gave me a turkey so what do you do when you get given a turkey? You cook it! I asked for some advice via social network and did an abundance of research (yes, I usually over kill research…) so I would ruin this massive bird.


I used this recipe, along with some advice from just about everyone I knew. I decided not to use a turkey bag, against everyone's judgement. I borrowed a GE 18 quart roaster from my Momma. For some reason it was a lot less scary to cook the turkey in this rather than in the oven, ya I don't know why either. But with a lot of prayer and peeking at the turkey every 10 minutes, lol. I made a turkey. I successfully did not ruin a 15 lb turkey. It is a miracle!

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.

Ingredients:

-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.
