MONAT-Modern Nature

A Decision has been made!!!

If you are not sure what I am talking about read my last post here.

I prayed a lot about this.  My husband and I talked about this.  I confided in my dear friend about this.  Then I signed up!!!

I joined a brand new (launched in October) company called MONAT (MOdern NATure).  MONAT is an all natural hair/skin care company.  The products have NO chemicals and are non toxic.  MONAT is based in the USA and the products are formulated in a state-of-the-art facility right here in the USA!

Spring is HERE!!!

As I mentioned awhile back I am going to become a gardener one way or another.  Since spring is FINALLY here we are in the beginning stages of an amazing garden!

We have two wild asparagus bushes in the ditch out by the road but with six people in our family, (all of which LOVE asparagus) two bushes are not enough.

Last fall my husband built an asparagus patch closer to our house.

Our favorite two ways to make asparagus are: 

Wrap it in bacon and grill it

Spread the asparagus on a baking sheet, rub olive oil on them and sprinkle it with sea salt.  Then throw it in the oven (375-400 degrees) for about 40 minutes flipping it half way through until it is crisp.  Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!

As we wait patiently for God to grace us with our own organic, home grown asparagus I thought I would share with you some recipes I have found that I am very excited to try.

Green Machine Wanna Be!!

20140217-233013.jpg

For awhile now I have wanted to start using “green” products and food in my home but who has time for that??? Not me. But this past year my family had been sicker than usual so my desire to go green skyrocketed. Since Pinterest is one of my best friends I went on a pinning frenzy!!

I have pinned many things in the past with the thought of going back later to read that or print that but it rarely happens. Until today…we’ll actually until about a month ago but that doesn’t sound as good as “today!”

Anyway where was I going with this? Oh yes…I have reorganized my boards on Pinterest and I have been reading and printing!!! We have been trying many of the tips and tricks to help simplify our lives but the best part is that today (it really was today) I made my first green all purpose cleaner!!! The sticky stuff on my cedar chest, made by my grandpa who is no longer with us, threw me over the edge.

The cleaners you buy in the store stink so bad I can’t help but wonder what I am breathing in. You know it is bad when your 14 year old daughter says we should try something else!!

Wow!! Making the cleaner was not only easy but it was cheap AND I had all 3 ingredients on hand and I bet you do too!!

All Purpose Cleaner~from Pinterest
1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
2 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice

Mix well and put in a spray bottle. You can clean anything even sticky stuff that only a few small boys would know where it came from!! This was a good day.

God bless you all and have good week!
