We started making our own laundry detergent almost a year ago to save money, make bulk and know it’s simple ingredients. After researching I chose the recipe the Duggar family has posted. This is how we make a big batch….
Today the kids and I enjoyed this for lunch today…
Cheesy Potpie Quesadilla
I diced up small 1/2 of a carrot, 1/2 a stalk of celery and 1/2 of a small onion. Sauteed them in a little butter and olive oil. Sprinkled with salt. When soft, sprinkled with a little flour. Poured in a splash of milk. Added a little shredded cheddar cheese. Spread this mixture on a whole wheat tortilla, place another tortilla on top. Heat up in skillet over medium heat. Cut in wedges with pizza cutter. Then we all ate them up!
We love fresh lemonade in this house, especially when we make it pink!
Finally, I made butter! I have seen a few times now on other blogs how simple it is to make homemade butter. Simple, organic, you know what’s in it, made with your hands, and yummy! Here’s what I did…
Poured 1 pint of organic heavy whipping cream (I used Horizon) into my stand mixer with whisk attachment. Beat on medium-high speed for a little over 10 minutes. Scooped a little at a time into my very small mesh strainer. (I think it’s time to invest in a larger one.) Then with the back a spoon squeezed all the liquid out. Then dumped the solid butter into a bowl and repeated several times. Once I had all the solid butter, I balled it up in my hands and squeezed out as much milk as I could. Then wrapped it with a paper towel to get a little more moister out. The butter will last in the refriderat0r for up to 2 weeks. With the leftover “buttermilk” I will use to make pancakes tonight.
If you like salted butter, you can add a little salt to the solid butter.
