Easy Pot of Beans

I totally meant to get this out a few days ago. Better late than never, right? 

I love making homemade beans and so does my family. This year for Thanksgiving on my side of the family we didn't do the traditional turkey and all the fixings. You see you when you get a family of Mexicans together you're gonna eat mexican food. Mmm so I was so happily volunteered by my SIL to make the beans. 

This is how I make a pot of beans. First off I use my crockpot. 

I used my small crockpot because I can put it on the low setting without a timer. I filled the pot with a 2 lb bag of pinto beans. Then I seasoned with garlic salt, onion powder, pepper and chicken bouillon. (Sorry no actual measurements, do it to taste) Then filled to the top with water. I let them soak for a couple of hours. Then just before I went to bed I turned on the crockpot to low and let them cook all night long.

I woke up to the smell of beans in the morning. Mmmm I checked on them, stirred them and added some more water and let them finish cooking for another couple of hours. So by 7 am they were completely cooked and tasty if I do say so myself. I let them cool just before we had to leave. 

My family totally scarfed them down. I hardly had any left to bring home.

Happy cooking.

Be Prepared - November

How did you all do last month in collecting fuel items? I did surprising well. I scored big at my local dollar store!
I found all of this at the dollar store!

I know November’s preparedness list is little late in getting out.
This month’s Food Storage items are Beans and Lentils.
Beans become a big staple in most food storages, because they are cheap. There are 2 ways to store beans, either dry canning or pressure canning them. I’ve personally done the pressure canning way with my MIL. We did okay for our first time but now we know what not to do the next time. More water less beans!! haha
You can buy the beans already canned for you either dry or wet. Emergency Essentials has the beans and legumes on sale this month. I know a lot of people like to buy the big 5 gallon bucket of beans, just remember when you open it you need to use it or you might be able to re-can them.
I’m not a very big fan of lentils, maybe because I had really bad experience as a kid with them, Bleh! But you might like lentils.
Here is a recipe using your food storage veggies and lentils to make a Greek Lentil Soup
Have fun collecting all sorts of beans! I will try to get a few of my favorite bean recipes up this month to share.
Here is the full November file to print out.

doTERRA - Using Oils at Home (Flu Bomb)

So with cold and flu season approaching I wanted to share my experience in using oils to kill the cold/flu bug before it got going.

On Friday morning I woke up with a little bit of a sore throat. I was thinking no way am I going to get sick, so after my morning shower I immediately rubbed some oils on my feet.

I started to feel a little bit better as the day went on.

On Saturday I still felt a little bit under the weather so I decided that I should probably take the oils in a capsule form.

I took 4 capsules throughout the day on Saturday and by Sunday was feeling fantastic!

doTERRA - Using Oils at Home (Serenity and Cardamom)

First off I just want to say that I LOVE oils!! They have done so much for me and my family since we started using them. My husband was skeptical at first and but now he will ask me what I have that can him with whatever it is that he needs help with. In fact that’s what I wanted to share in this post.

Last night both of the girls were fussy and to wired up, especially my 2 year old. Holy Moly that girl is a ball of energy! She definitely gives us a run for our money, but we love her. Okay, so to calm them down I rubbed the Serenity blend on the bottom of Miss Summer’s feet, she’s my 2 year old, and then rubbed some on the baby. Miss S calmed down and went to bed not too whiny. The baby needed a little bit more to calm her down b/c she was a bit gassy so I also rubbed the new oil Cardamom on her belly. Within a few mins she was sound asleep!!

Moving on to hubby, he was a little anxious b/c he was prepping for job interview and asked if there was something in my oil arsenal that would help him calm down. Why yes there is husband! I grabbed the Serenity and my fractionated coconut oil and proceeded to rub it onto his shoulders and neck. I massaged it in and he was commenting on how good it smelled and felt. Then he asked me to rub his temples and he started to relax. Score for mom last night!!

Here are the oils I used.
Cardamom is not only good for the digestive system but for the respiratory as well. It also smells so good! When I’ve rubbed it on the baby I just love holding her just to smell it! haha

Now this has a wonderful smell! It has sandalwood in it which gives it its awesome sweet smell! This can be used topically and aromatically in a diffuser.

Be Prepared - October

So how did you all do last month in collecting salt? I was able to get sea salt from the bulk bin at my local WinCo and filled up an extra pint sized jar. I also got some Epsom salt for wounds. I also got regular table salt, which is totally cheap.

Well this month it’s all about lights and fuel. Candles, flashlight, matches, batteries, etc.
Did you know that you can make your own emergency candles? I’m all about saving money and making things, so this is something that I’m going to do. There are a few different kinds that you can make but I will share a couple that would be most popular.
Here are 2 different types of homemade emergency candles you can make and store.
Wax Candles – This looks like fun

Liquid Paraffin Candles – I think that I might try this one
You can also buy them if you decide to go that route. Emergency Essentials always has a good deal going on to make it easy to purchase emergency items. *I’m an affiliate for Emergency Essentials so by clicking on the link and purchasing something from them helps my earnings.*

When you see batteries on sale buy them and stock up. Get all different kinds b/c you never know what you’ll need. From triple A to a watch battery, it’s good to have them on hand. We’re lucky over here b/c my husband gets them for free from work. He is always bringing home batteries.

As for your fuel get a few gas buckets and store them in a safe place. Here is a great post from The Ready Store regarding the storage of fuel and how to do it.
Good Luck! Remember if don’t get everything on the list don’t worry, get it in next month.

Here is the link for the full October file.
