What is it called when your iris’ and lillies and daffodils overtake your yard? I know it is called beautiful, but other than that, it there a technical name for that other than multiplying? Anyway, when get they get good and thick I know it is best to dig some up, divide them and replant in a different garden so you can better appreciate their beauty.
That is what I am about to do with this blog. I know it is a bit overwhelming. I mean really, I have a dozen totally diverse catagories for my posts, and half aren’t even listed yet! So I am going to divide. I will still keep everything here for those of you that are like me, but for the rest of you I am going to start some spin off sites that are more focused. I have really been desiring to do a daily devotional that can be used for family time. I have really been needing to share how this family with 7 children and nearly 30 horses live off of less than $25,000 a year while paying the expenses for our church included in that. I have been desiring to share about more about how a momma can work at home without neglecting her children. And I want to share more about homeschooling. But I want it to be a little easier for you to find what you want in all of that. Oh yeah, I also want to show you how I teach my youngins to start their own home business. And I want all of those sites to be more specialized than this one. Oh my, I just gave myself another “to-do” list. So stay tuned, I have taken this Let’s Get Organized week completely overboard! I need to get the rest of my domain names in order so I will make the big announcement on Monday!
But for today I will share my Frugal Friday tip. How do you take a small package of meat and make it work for a big family? Gravy of course! The other night Georgia who is an amazing “make supper great person” even when Momma is really trying to pay 12 things at once. She took a package of boneless pork chops and put them in a pan with just a little water and seasonings to bake, then took the meat out and shredded it. Then used the drippings to make milk gravy added in the meat and served over rice. It was incredible! Put some veggies from the garden and everyone loved it. Even when we have a whole cow in the freezer we try not to serve too much meat. We use it more as a topping or side with veggies or rice or potatoes or pasta being the main filler. My family is very healthy with very good appetites, lots of energy and strength, they all are in great shape and look like atheletes, and can out work most farm workers. I think the all american meat and potatoes diet is a little backwards, it should be potatoes and meat. And lots of veggies and fruit!
