I've been wanting to make different posts about all of the different things we've been doing around the house, but none of them seem to be blog worthy. So, I saved them all up to share today!
I also made dry laundry detergent (thanks for the idea/inspiration Maranda!). After seeing how much detergent can be made from spending so little, I don't think I will be going back to Tide. I actually really enjoyed the process of making the detergent. All of the ingredients can be found at Wally World.
I learned how to make my Aunt Arlene's Wow Wow Chow Chow. If you've ever gathered around for dinner in the Nelson house, you've probably eaten or seen this beautiful food. Traditionally, you eat this with beans and cornbread, salmon patties, hot water bread, etc.. I eat it out of the jar or however else I can get it. It was such a special experience making this Chow Chow and learning how to can with my Granny. I always enjoy our time together, but when we were making this Chow Chow, I kind of felt like she was passing on a legacy. I'm so glad she is patient enough to put up with all of my questions and mess ups in the learning process! I will be canning some jams and preserves next month. I'm looking forward to teaching my kids and grandkids how to can!
