Thanksgiving Turkey Tips {Free Printable}

Hi Guys!

Every year I call my Mom up with the same questions “when do I put the turkey in the fridge to defrost?”, “how long will the turkey stay good for in the fridge?”, “what if it’s not ready in time for Thanksgiving?”… and every year she answers those questions for me without ever saying “I told you last year, and the year before that, and the year before that..” she’s awesome like that!

However this year I decided to pick her brain on all things Turkey and finally write it all down, so that way I can pass the information down to my children some day, and their children, etc. etc., and pass the information on to you guys as well.

Traditional Thanksgiving {Menu, Shopping List, and Recipes} FREE

Hi Guys!

Only 10 more days until Thanksgiving, can you believe it?! Are you prepared yet?! I was able to get a little bit of my Thanksgiving grocery shopping done over the weekend, but I still have more to buy.

Pretty much every year I forget at least one thing at the store, and so I thought in order to help me with all my planning and shopping I would type it all up. And today i’m going to share what I have created with you all.

Traditional Thanksgiving 1

I’ve written up the menu, the shopping list, and the recipes. I’ve even divided the recipes into appetizers, main course, and desserts in an effort to make things even easier.

We put apples slices into 4 different jars. One jar had just air, the next had water, the next had oil, and the last one had vinegar. We observed them all day to see what would happen to the apples and we put our results in our journals.

DIY Peppermint Bath Salt

Hi Guys!

I’m back today with another fun DIY project, bath salt.

IMG_5047

Peppermint bath salt, to be exact. This project just screams Christmas time to me, and if you have ever smelt peppermint essential you know why. This project is super easy, only requires 4 products (5 if you want to add in the coloring), and smells amazing!

Ingredients:

IMG_5029

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl add the first 3 ingredients and mix well. Then, add the essential oil and stir well to combine. If adding in the red colorant, like I did, divide mixture into half and add colorant to one half. Finally, layer the bath salts into whatever container you are using.

How to use:

Pour 1/2 a cup to 1 cup of bath salt into running bath water, and enjoy!
