I'm soooo jealous of that dish soap but ESPECIALLY the lotion! (no dishwasher)

Nymeria has a crazy deal on her etsy! You can buy one of her other hand lotions for about $4, and if you send her the empty container when it's done she'll refill it for you for $3! OMG! Lifetime supply of awesome handmade lotion for $3 a jar! It's insanely awesome Smiley

[edited to mark the correct pricing]

For the record, I'm totally addicted to her products. I have super sensitive skin so I can't buy most products you can find at the store. I'm just over enthusiastic about girly smelling products that won't make me break out into a horrible rash.

Ok, here it is!  Received a cool package from Loralyn the other day:

A folder full of recipes with them on a cd in pdf - if I ever get around to actually installing my cooking software, this will come in handy!  Also, two articles about being on a budget (haven't read them yet).  There's a packet of recipe index cards - I'm actually in the process of writing my camping recipes on them to put in our pop up!  


There was also a wrapped little package that made me ooh and aah when I opened just the card!  I can't find the pic of the card just now, but if I do I will upload the hand made scrappy goodness Smiley  I gave an awwed wow when I opened the paper.  A gorgeous apron!  This is sewn beautifully...trimmed with red rick rack, chicken and egg fabric with a nice pocket for me to gather eggs in (we have 30+ chickens).  The lettering on the pocket was fabric stitched.  I can't tell you how beautiful this is in person!


There was noone home to give me an action shot, so my puppy Togo volunteered...kinda (he's staring at the biscuit I put there so he would hold still).  Thank you so much, I love this apron!  


Hmmm, there's a bunch of good recipes here but I think I'm actually going to try this one tomorrow:

Slow Cooked Oriental Chicken

4 lb chicken cut into serving pieces              2 Tbsp water
2 tbsp oil                                                 1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 c soy sauce                                        1 Tsbp ginger root - fresh; minced
2 Tbsp brown sugar

Brown chicken in oil. transfer to slow cooker.  combine remaining ingredients and pour over chicken.

cook on high for 1 hour.  reduce heat to low, cook 4-5 hours longer.

serve with rice and steamed broccoli.

Tips:  she has cooked this on just low and it turned out fine.  she keeps her fresh ginger in the freezer and grates it right into the pot.

i'd like to see chickens run...see there are so many reasons to have chickens, including comedic value Smiley

here are the goodies i received from princessblueberry. a very cute cherry blossom pendant, a wonderful recipe journal with lots of great visual detail, lots of recipes, an embroidered bamboo tea towel, and a ceramic spoon holder ( i use it every morning for my coffee spoon, i drink a pot of coffee every day, so this is just wonderful to have!)






thank you again princessblueberry! you spoiled me, and i just love everything. i cant wait to try the cheesy bean recipe
