Guess What I Got!?!?!?

My MIL came over and brought all these boxes of jars to us, she called the other day and asked if we wanted them--well, yeah! She was going to take to the recycling center and then happen to think that we may want them, and I said yeah, that we would sure take them!

But....I got such a surprise!!


A PRESSURE CANNER!!! I couldn't believe it!

I have a regular water bath canner, but we were just saying again a couple of days ago how we would like to try to get a pressure canner so we would be able to try to can soups and stews and so forth, but they cost SOOO much. And then she just gives me this one!! What a Blessing! Once again I am SO thankful to the Lord for His many blessings he gives us!

Frugal Friday--Poor Chicken!

Poor Poor Chicken, this is all that is left of it!

We had rotisserie chicken on the grill the other day, we were at Mendards a while back and they had marked down a rotisserie that mounts on your gas grill so we got it. We seasoned up the chicken and let it cook for about an hour and a half or so. It was really good and it was even pretty to look at it--that is before we tore into it!ha! (I forgot to take pictures of all that)Well, after we all had our fill, we tore off all the other meat left on the chicken and had it the next day for lunches as sandwiches and then took all the bones, etc left and boiled it to make broth that I froze and we will use the broth for making something else! So, at least 3 meals out of one chicken-not too bad! I have read on some other blogs where depending on the size of the chicken they have got more uses out of a chicken, but I thought that was pretty good--baby steps! I was proud of myself!

Thrifty Thursday!

Our youngest sons Jeep Cherokee Sport needed some new rims, as you can see they looked kinda ugly and new ones were going to be quite a bit of money as you can imagine, soooo--we decided to spray paint the rims and make them "new". My DH took each tire off and scrubbed with a brush,cleaned each rim with paint thinner and wiped them off, then taped each tire off with newspaper so as to not get paint on the tires and sprayed each one with spray paint for metal and a "chrome" look.

Pretty good huh?

Gratituesday--on Wednesday!

Tomatoes and Beans and Corn oh my!
We have been SO busy here lately with harvesting the many different things out of the garden, so busy that I haven't had time to even post about it! As you can see (kinda-the picture turned out dark--sorry!)we have canned some things and froze some things-no rhyme or reason really, just to have a variety and our freezer is beginning to get on the full side from all of it! Great "problem" to have huh? But I want to be sure and give thanks and praise to our wonderful Lord for His many blessings yet again!

Back From Church Camp!

We are back from Church Camp!
It was really great to see everyone again and catch up with ones that we haven't seen for quite a while--some since last year at camp!
But most of all it was especially nice to be in all the services and draw closer to our Heavenly Father!
