Wow, I really made up for last week didn't I? No excuse, I fail.

Did you have any food waste this week?


  1. Yea we have some mashed potatoes and peas and some strawberries and yogurt that went bad..oops! It's such a yucky feeling knowing we've wasted so much food.

    I found your blog on a blog hop today and am following now. I hope you can come visit my blog and join my hop as well!

  2. I can totally relate! I try to use leftovers up but I fail too-often.

    I'm visiting from I hope you'll visit me too and follow if you like it. Thanks!

  4. Been there... It is hard to make the perfect meal plan that is completely waste free, I was really bad as a young homemaker, and am a lot better now, I still have to toss out bad produce from time to time. When I had chickens I could give them leftovers and I still give our two big ol' labs leftovers too- they are very happy to help :) Visiting from Thursday almost friday blog hop. ~April

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.
