The cabin gives a nice warm feeling.

Another use for BAKING SODA removing grease build up

Baking soda can be used for so many things!
But I wanted to show you my recent discovery.
This dish sits by our deep fryer so it gets a lot of grease build up.
I decided I would see what baking soda would do.
To help clean it up.
It took off the grime effortless. 
Well it took a little elbow grease, but it was pretty easy.

In the picture below you can see the top still has the build up. 
the bottom of the dish does not.
I did it by sprinkling the soda on the dish.
Then used a wet dish cloth to remove and scrub.

Thrifty Thanksgiving Table: Dollar Store DIY


I love Thanksgiving.  
The smells in the house, the fall colors in the house and

I love getting them involved.  I have found they eat better when they help.


Decorating the table is always an attention grabber.

This year all I bought were some fake leaves and votives from the Dollar Tree.
