Homemade Fabreeze

I love Fabreeze, but it is just so darn expensive. So today I thought I would try a recipe for Homemade Fabreeze. I LOVE IT! Now I have only just made it this weekend, but it seems to be working great.
Here are the ingredients you will need.
1 Cup Water, 1 Cup Baking Soda and 1 Cup Fabric Softener (I even used the cheap stuff!).
Mix the baking soda with the water. Stir until dissolve. This may take awhile. You might need to heat it up in a sauce pan to get it all to dissolve. If it doesn't all dissolve it will clog your sprayer.

Pour in the softener and mix well.

Pour into spray bottle.

Remember to shake it well before each use.

Until Next Time,

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Yum Yum Yum!!!
I made this for the first time tonight. I was delicious, but what isn't when it has bacon in it. It was super easy too! I got the recipe at Cooking During Stolen Moments. She has some really great recipes.

Phil always laughs at me because I never have all the ingredients for what I am making so I improvise. This was the case shortly after we got married and my brother was visiting us when we lived in Denver. I was going to make spegetti for dinner. I was out of ground beef but I had a package of maple saugage. I have never used it before and I figured the maple would be very sutle and the spegetti sauce would dround out the maple flavor. Boy was I wrong. They both took a bite and looked at each other like, what in the world has she done to us now. Never the less we went out to eat that night.

Yes this is because of my lack of planning ahead. Today I didn't have the chicken stock so I used beef stock instead and it still turned out great.
Until Next Time,

God the Sovereign Savor

I will love You, O Lord my strength. The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. My God my strength in whom I will trust. My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, So shall I be saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:1-3
