Potatoes

Does anyone know how to tell when a potato is ready to be picked? I planted some over the summer, and I would love to have a fresh potato to put in my crock pot to eat with my stew.

Any and all help (except the evil Google) would be greatly appreciated.

Cloth Diapers!

First off, this is incredible

http://theecofriendlyfamily.com/2011/04/need-diapers-emergency-or-no-cash-no/

I personally would have never thought to use a t-shirt as a cloth diaper. I think I will run by a few thrift stores later to see what I can find!

I think cloth diapers are very invaluable. They are quite amazing! You don't have to spend a fortune in disposables! You just wash and reuse!

My husband bought a sink sprayer and a couple of other small parts and attached it to our plumbing system in the bathroom so we had a sprayer for poop to go into the toilet. Did you know you shouldn't throw poop away, so you should be dumping your childs poop into the toilet, no matter what kind of diaper you use?

So why not cloth diaper? Its easy, effective, and if you are hard up, you can always use a t-shirt!

Throw Together Dinner

Tonight, we didn't have much in the house. Well, we had a lot of things, but nothiing that goes together and makes a nice meal. So I improvised!

Throw Together Dinner

I took some fish from the bottom of the freezer and spread some roasted garlic hummus on it. I laid it in the bottom of my pans, and preheated the over to 350

Next I took the rest of my black eyed peas and sprinkled them on top until there was a single layer across the pan. I then did the same with green peas, broccoli, and corn. Finally, I took some sliced cheese and laid it on top, and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. when it came out, I mixed it all together so the fish and cheese made its way in through the veggies

It came out wonderful. There was a nice even flavor of garlic and cheese. My youngest daughter hates veggies and fish, but she couldn't even taste the veggies or fish!

I will definitely have to make this again!

Halloween!

We do not celebrate Halloween.

It is a Satanic Holiday.

We all retire to bed at 7  pm so that nobody will think we are home. We don't let our children see the costumes. Satan is hiding in these costumes, so if our children even LOOK at them, they will probably sadly be taken by Satan and we will have to perform an exorcism.

Going to bed early is a bit of a struggle. Its easy enough to get the kids down, but my husband and I have a hard time going to bed that early. Once, we decided to turn on a lamp and read in the darkness. The electricity was shut off. A couple other times, we tried to procreate. Both times, I miscarried. So we took it to mean that NO fun is to be had on Halloween!

My girls will not go to school. We will all read Bible passages aloud. We eat leftovers from the night before. I suppose Halloween is just another Sabbath day for us! Whatever praises Him, right!?
