10 Things I Learned By Reading Blogs This Week

  1. Did you know that you can boil eggs overnight in a crock pot?  Apparently you can.  I will give this a try and report back.  This info came from the Grocery Shrink.
  2. At the blog Happy in Dole Valley she is doing a muffin series, a new muffin for each week for 52 weeks.  I love muffins.
  3. You can make your own chalkboard labels with chalkboard paint, who would have thought?  
  4. I don't like plastic.  I like clear glass jars. Glass jars don't break down, unless, of course you break them.  I can see what is in them.  I use jars to store leftover's in, to drink out of, to store dry goods in but I never knew that you could freeze food in them.  Now I know.
  5. I knew you could make you own vanilla and I've seen tutorials on it before, but this one really caught my eye.  I love the bottle, the label and that it is all homemade.
  6. Crockpot love again, you can apparently make mac and cheese in one!
  7. If I want pancakes, now that I am trying to eat less gluten,  I can try this recipe.
  8. I would really like to get a rain barrel, or two, and I need to remind myself to talk to DH about it.  I have seen several posts about them, this being the most recent.
  9. IPAD apps like this.
  10. Those little annoying stickers on  produce actually mean something,  if the number is five digits and starts with a 9 then the produce was grown organically.  If it has five digits and starts with an 8 then the produce is genetically modified.  A four digit number means the item was grown conventionally.  I learned this at Wellness Mama's blog.
