I had a bottle of dollar store baby powder, some lavender essential oil, and baking soda.
I put some baking soda (around 2 tablespoon) in with the baby powder, added 3 drops of lavender essential oil, shook it up. I then sprinkled it on the carpet before I vacuumed, and it worked and smelled wonderful!
Just thought that I would share that.

1 whole small chicken
1 large onion
1 large sweet potato
4/5 stalks of celery (including leaves)
1 bunch of parsley
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
I boil the chicken in a large stock pot for about 2 hours. Add veggies, and boil for another 1 1/2 hours. Remove chicken, bones, and veggies from pot. Discard bones, put chicken in another container (save for soup or a different meal). Place veggies in blender and puree, add back to broth. Veggie puree will thicken it a bit, if it is too thick for your liking, you can add a little water, or canned chicken stock. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Here is a quick tip of the day: If you are out in the yard and have no bug spray, use Vicks Vapor Rub. It repels mosquitos, flys, and gnats! It really works. My dh keeps some in his tackle box for when he goes fishing!

Clear mushroom soup
Pickled pigs feet
Garlicky Kidney beans
Here is my dh's favorite, the salmon pattie recipe. As a sidenote, I don't measure, and never will so you'll have to guesstimate the amounts.
4 cans of Salmon (can use less for your family)
1 handful of cheez it crackers, crushed
1 handful of ritz crackers, crushed
I pick the bones out of the salmon, because it is just a texture thing to me, but they are very good for you and are a great source of calcium. Mix all ingredients together as if making a meatloaf. Form into patties, I make large patties, any size you want. Fry on top of the stove in large skillet, in olive oil (enough to cover bottom of pan). Fry until brown and crispy on the outside, on each side. Voila'! Time to enjoy!
Or just thinking, maybe it is nap time. My two kitties seem to think it is time to nap, and I don't think that they are wrong. Hmmmm....
