Yard work and Cooking Vlog

Yard work and cooking

So I am hoping to start filming more if you are like me you know that life is always moving never stopping. I finally found my battery charger so I can get filming again. This video was of some yard work I did and man was it calming. I also did lots of cooking to get ready for the week and keep life going and not having to stop to think about food because as much as I love cooking and food prep sometimes life gets in the way and I will forget to make dinner. We are currently on a tight budget due to a lot of issues our home we bought back in November started to pop up. You know how life gets if one thing starts then there will be ten issues to follow.

Do you clean these as often?

Spring Cleaning Tips…Do you clean these as often?

This was a video I made as a collab with the youtube mommy meet up. back in March 2016. I talked about things around the house that we don’t clean as often as we should. Some of these are used over and over and should be cleaned way more often than we clean them.

March YTMM spring cleaning collab. I am talking about things in the house that should be cleaned more often than they are.
We run these things non stop but if we don’t keep them clean they will break down when we need them the most.
Watch all the other wonderful ladies who did March collab and if you enjoyed this video Comment bellow if you clean these more often.

First time making homemade flour tortillas

First time making homemade flour tortillas

I love learning new things it is one of the things I enjoy.  When I got the crazy idea to make homemade tortillas for our fajitas I knew was in for an adventure. After all those videos and blog posts you see when they are perfect probably was done several times to make a good looking tortilla. Could just be very horrible at making things because mine never looks perfect. Flaws and all they were the best tortillas I have ever eaten. I found the recipe online. I wish I could remember exactly where I found it. They all seemed to be mostly the same when it came to the ingredients the only difference I noticed was the amount used.

Recipe 

3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon of salt
1/3 cup of Vegetable shortening
1 cup hot water

mix ingredients well then knead on a  floured surface until no longer sticky.  Place dough into a bowl or any sealed container and sit in fridge 1 hour to overnight. (I recommend overnight) separate into palm size balls and roll out with a rolling pin until big enough. Roll in every direction to form a flat round tortilla. The thinner the better.

Heat a skillet on medium to medium low and cook on both sides until brown.
