Motivational Monday ~ Life's Too Short to Be Anything But Happy


“There comes a time in your life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy.”
 
Karl Marx (1897-1985);

Hey Victoria! What's For Supper? Just the Best Sloppy Joes Ever ~ Mmm!

I used to buy Sloppy Joe Sauce from a can.  After trying this recipe, I will never do that again!  Made with ingredients that most of us already have in the pantry, these are bold and tasty.  We have them at least once a week and it is easy to freeze for a quick meal on a hectic night.  This recipe is Gluton-free (with the exception that I use regular hamburger buns instead of Gluten-free buns and of course add cheese.).  


Prep Time 15 Minutes                         Cook Time 10 Minutes           4 Servings
(You can double or triple the recipe for more people)

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1/4 green pepper, diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
8-ounce can tomato sauce

Cooking Directions:
  1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper in oil, breaking the meat up with a fork.
  2. Stir in the chili powder, cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, mustard, garlic powder, salt, pepper, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato sauce and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often.  Serve on hamburger bus or Gluten-Free hamburger buns and if you like add some American or cheddar cheese to top it off. 
Hope you like this recipe.  Cook some up this weekend and enjoy!

The Good Ole Days

This was sent to me by a good friend and much of it was so close to how I grew up I had to share with you.  How many of you remember the good ole days?


My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread Mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.

My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too.  Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e.coli.

Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine Pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.

We all took gym, not PE... and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top $9.95 Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having one hundred eighty dollar cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries; but, they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.

Flunking gym was not an option.  I guess PE must be much harder than gym.

Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.

We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then.. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.

I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.

Oh yeah... And where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!

We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.

Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.

We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either; because if we did we got our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got home!

I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off.  Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house, now days! Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof.  It was a neighborhood run amuck.

To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family.  How could we possibly have known that we needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes?

We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn't even notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac!


Ahh the memories!  How did we ever survive?

NEW Purex Laundry App for IPhone and Android

Have you every tried to get a stain out but just didn't know where to start?  How about the brand new blouse you just purchased?  What is the best way to maintain it's vibrant color and keeping it looking brand new?

The NEW Purex Laundry App can help you answer these questions and so much more.  I downloaded it to my phone and my older son's phone.  He has always washed his own laundry and ironed his clothes.  Does he do it correctly?  Probably not.  He throws all of his clothes in at once, dumps the detergent and goes.  When ironing he turns the iron all the way up.  I am surprised he does not have iron marks or burn holes in everything he owns.  He told me he would do my laundry and ironing if I wanted him to. Ummmm not at this time, but maybe after he uses the Purex Laundry App.

I really like the easy use of the app.  If I want to know about how to take care of my fabrics, I select the fabric care button, scroll to select the fabric, and the click help.  It gives washing and drying directions for that particular fabric.

How about those evil stains?  Click the Stain Guide and then scroll to select category then stain, then material. Click Get Solution.  I chose Arts and Crafts for the category, crayons for the stain, and cotton for the material.  Here is the stain solution:

"Always follow garment label instructions when pretreating and laundering your clothes. For colored garments, test an inside seam for colorfastness. If the garment is washable, follow the instructions below.
Harden crayon wax with ice, then remove surface wax with a dull knife. Place crayon stain between clean paper towels and press with a warm iron. Replace paper towels regularly to absorb more wax and to prevent transferring the stain. Once most of the wax is absorbed into the towel, sponge remaining stain with Zout® stain remover or Fels Naptha laundry bar soap then blot with paper towel. Let dry, wash with Purex® detergent in the warmest water recommended on the garment label. Note: If any color remains, relaunder with a color safe bleach (or chlorine bleach for white fabric)."

Here are the features of the new App you can choose from:
  • Stain Guide: Expert advice on how to treat your toughest stains.
  • Label Decoder: Find out what those funny little pictures on your clothes' tags actually mean.
  • Fabric Care: Helpful care instructions for popular fabric types. 
  • Ironing & Folding: Learn the basics of properly ironing and folding a range of clothing.
  • Laundry Time: Here to make sure you never forget about another load of laundry.
  • Promotions: A summary of all current Purex promotions.
  • Mix-N-Match: A fun little memory game to pass the time waiting for your laundry to finish.
  • Product Info: Key information on Purex products.
  • Barcode Scanner: Scan Purex products to learn more about them.
The Purex Laundy App is great for everyone, especially for someone just learning to do laundry.  I may let my son do my laundry after all!

Fels-Napth Laundry Bar Review

As a Purex Insider, I recently had the opportunity to try out a Fels-Naptha laundry bar and stain remover. I had never heard of it before so I was excited to try a new product that can fight tough stains.  

There are so many  uses for Fels-Naptha.  Use the bar right on stains, shave some of the bar in your laundry for a booster, or even better make your own laundry soap.  

RECIPE FOR DRY DETERGENT

1 bar Fels Naptha grated/shredded
1 cup WASHING SODA 55 OZ
1 cup 20 Mule Team Borax

mix all ingredients and store in a air tight container and use 2 tablespoons at a time.  Store in Tight Container.


RECIPE FOR LIQUID DETERGENT


1/3 bar Fels Naptha or other type of soap, as listed above
½ cup washing soda
½ cup borax powder 
~You will also need a small bucket, about 2 gallon size~

Grate the soap and put it in a sauce pan.  Add 6 cups water and heat it until the soap melts.  Add the washing soda and the borax and stir until it is dissolved.  Remove from heat.  Pour 4 cups hot water into the bucket.   Now add your soap mixture and stir.  Now add 1 gallon plus 6 cups of water and stir.  Let the soap sit for about 24 hours and it will gel.  You use ½ cup per load. 
(Liquid Recipe from thefamilyhomestead.com)
