Face Masks!

image

I used to love a certain mask I’d buy at a certain beauty store for an insane amount of money.
Then one day while trolling through Target (who doesn’t do THAT?) I found a  purifying mud mask. The specific reason I picked it was is that it contains witch hazel. I love witch hazel. This mask also only cost $1.99. I was sold.

I was able to get two uses out of this little packet. The first time when I was done I just folded it over and put it away, used it again about a week later.
Made my face feel refreshed and oh so clean!

Anxious for Eggs

I am getting really anxious for my chickens to start laying. They are 11 weeks old this week. That means I still have about two months before they hit little chicken “puberty!”

Although I am kinda on the fence about whether one of them is a boy or girl… Its been making this weird noise for a few weeks, I think it could be trying to crow!

Isn’t “it” beautiful though?! Sort of looks like a cartoon. Say “hello” to Tafany!

Sprucing up my Nesting Boxes

While researching for my chicken coop I came across this article about putting curtains in for the nesting boxes.
There is a lot of great info on this website, I’m looking into doing this for my Ladies. ❤

Will post pictures of how I am able to accomplish this task!!

DIY Taco Seasoning

I love Mexican food. I love to make things that aren’t Mexican cuisine taste like Mexican cuisine. I love chimichangas, burritos, quesadillas, tacos, nachos.. anything!! What I don’t love is all the preservatives in my food. Not because I am a health nut or anything, but because if I can do something myself, I prefer to! Makes sense, right? Plus, if you have everything already in the cupboard why go out and buy something!
I always used to have packets upon packets of taco seasoning in my Savory Cupboard. (Yes, that’s a real thing in my kitchen. Along with a sweet cupboard.)
I started experimenting with my seasonings, which I own just about al of them, and came up with a recipe to rival top store brands! Ha!

I used 1tbsp of the first 4 spices shown, 2tsp of red pepper, 2tsp black pepper and a crank or two from the sea salt grinder.

Its that simple. Depending on how spicy you like your food you can add more or less of the red pepper, and even some crushed red pepper if you like it smokin’ hot!

One of my favorite recipes to use this seasoning on is baking chicken for chicken salad sandwiches. 2 or 3 chicken breasts in a baking dish with a whole onion chopped coarsely, olive oil and season with your homemade taco seasoning. Bake at 425* for 25-30 minutes, depending on the size of the breasts. Shred chicken with forks (I hold one in each hand and just tear it up.) My husband and I eat a “heathier” version where I don’t add the mayo to the chicken, instead I spread it on my bread, add the chicken and onions. I feel like I am consuming less mayo, therefore, healthier.

ENJOY!
