Today is WFMW!

My Works For Me Wednesday tip is Easy Sunburn Relief.

We have used Olive Oil on our sunburns for the last several years. Not only does it provide cooling relief, it takes care of the sunburn too. This also works on wind chapped places. You wait half an hour or so before you apply it. It Works For Me!

Happy Tuesday!

So nice to be back! As a result of doing some bathroom work yesterday, here is a picture of our shower stall 200 tiles later:

We still have some tiles to put up as you can see, but we are making huge headway!

Today I have two things I would like to ask prayer over.
The first is my Mom, she has not been feeling well. Please pray that she will get to feeling better.

Please also pray for my friend Flibbertigibbet who has been sick.

Have a great day!

Good Quote…..

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. (Ecclesiates 3:1-8)”

Frugal Friday!

My Frugal Friday tip is Easy Peanut Butter cookies with only 4 ingredients.

1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350^.Blend all ingredients, mix well until thoroughly mixed. Drop by rounded tablespoon on to a greased cookie sheet. Make fork marks on top by crossing the marks. Cook until spread out and not shiny. These will come out of the oven slightly gooey. When they cool, they are cookie consistency. Yummy! Enjoy!

It is WFMW hosted by Mrs. Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer.My WFMW tip is chocolate milkshakes without ice cream! My Mom found this recipe at Hillbilly Housewife. The recipe is:

Magic Milkshakes

1-1/2 to 2 cups ice water

1-1/2 cups nonfat dry milk powder

2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 to 1-1/2 trays of ice cubes, as much as you can spare

2 tablespoons corn oil plus a 5-second squirt of non-stick spray for emulsification purposes

Place all of the ingredients into the blender, including the oil and the non-stick spray. Use less water for thicker milk shakes and more water for shakes that are easy on your blender motor. The blender should be about 3/4’s full. Place the lid on. Process for a full 2 minutes. Pour into cups and serve. Makes 4 – 12oz servings. For preparation tips please see below.

I love this recipe because it makes very rich milk shakes without any ice cream. I don’t always have ice cream in the house because the kids eat it so fast. With this recipe we can have delicious frosty milk shakes for a fraction of the cost of those using ice cream. And all the ingredients are on the pantry shelf!
