Day 2

Today is a 'day of running'. Running here and there, post office (No my box isn't ready -- well it IS but I ordered something that will be here in a few days and have to wait for that to ship it!) I have two other boxes to mail.

 

I found sheets for my neice for her birthday -- Spongebob. She loves Spongebob, and her birthday is Valentines day. I also got sheets for my nephews -- Spiderman! They love superheros. I also got them vitamins (free after coupons -- or almost free in one case). I sent a long some of the tea that I had gotten free too.

 

Then, I am trading someone for a Hyundai alarm/door opener thing for my car. Usually they are really expensive, she has this one that she is trading me for candles and three bars of soap. LOL Good deal!

 

so BANG (starting gun) I am off. To get tape and then package these things up and off to my brothers kids and my trade. WOO HOO!!! See you all later.

 

 

UPDATE:

 

I went to the post office and mailed my packages. Went to the park and SCORED On some kids books someone was giving away -- freebies are always nice. Then I was able to take two HUGE boxes of kids books away with me and see if I can barter them for something! Cool beans.

 

We got home and I relaxed and checked my mail ACK -- some idiot moderator on Freecycle told everyone to put a 'test' message out if they wanted to know if they were still on probation or not -- instead of answering the question for each person herself. So A LOT of my messages were stupid TEST messages.

 

Made some really good corn bread muffins for an afternoon snack for my kids.

 

2 jiffy corn muffin mixes, 1 can of corn, drained, two eggs and the milk, and a can of chopped jalapeno peppers (whatever strength you like them at) Mix them all together and bake. Oh wow. I love corn muffins with jalapenos and corn in them. I have also added garlic and cheddar cheese. That is really good too.

 

I found this recipe on a yahoo group I belong to:

Homemade Cream Soup Mix-

 

Use as a replacement for canned cream soups. This dry mix yields

the equivalent of 9 cans of condensed cream soup!

 

2 c. instant nonfat dry milk

3/4 c. cornstarch

1/4 c. low sodium chicken or beef bouillion

1/2 t. dried thyme

1/2 t. dried basil

1/4 t. black pepper

 

Combine and whirl all ingredients in a blender. Store in an airtight

container. To substitute for 1 can of condensed cream soup, stir

together 1/3 c. dry mix with 1 c. water in saucepan. Cook and stir

until its thickened. Add to recipes as you would canned soup.
