30 Day Quick Cleaning Cycle List

Do you feel overwhelmed sometimes with all that you need to get done? Somedays I feel like I will never see the end of cleaning my home. Just when I get one room done I turn around and see a thousand other projects. It is those little things that sometimes trip us up and those things also get forgotten too. Here is a simple little 30-day list of getting those little things done.

Take one day a month and clean that item listed and then at the end of the month you can look back and realize how much you did.

I hope this list gives you some fun new ideas of things that can make your day, week, and month a little lighter and cleaner for you.

House to HOME…Declutter with me

In the world that we live in ….do you find your life feeling cluttered?  We have so many things on your plate from social media, activities, children, family, friends, school, church, and then there is our house.  Do you ever feel like your house is no longer a home?  Do you feel like your house is being taken over by stuff and clutter?

I have decided to eat that elephant called my house and eat it one bite at a time.  How am I going to do that you ask?  Well….currently we are 20 weeks away from Christmas.  So, over the next 20 weeks, I will aim to declutter only one area at a time or one bite at a time. 

This will break things down so that it is not as overwhelming, and I can set each week aside for just one extra task.  The great part about doing it this way…..is that after 20 weeks, I will have 20 areas of my life cleaned up.  Also, I can also look at this that I can do this in the next 20 weeks and look forward to Christmas and know that my house is retaking shape as my HOME!

If you would like to join me, I will have a series on my YouTube channel called “House to Home…Declutter with Me”.  Over the next 20 weeks, we will declutter an area together and you can follow along by printing a copy of the PDF of the 20-week journey. Also, there is a 52-week list if you want to be adventurous and have a full year’s worth of decluttering your house.

Ok, let’s do this together!

I will post the first video in the series to give you a taste of what we will be doing and then you can follow each week on YouTube for the next video in the series.

I hope you enjoy it!

THE BEST Poor MAN’S BEEF STROGANOFF BY LYNN

We all want a quick, cheap, and easy meal to make any time for lunch or
dinner. This meal I have made for all my married 35+ years life. It is such a
favorite that we have this at least 2 twice a month and my kids still ask for
it!

Most of the ingredients you can find right in your pantry, and you can have
this on the table in 15 minutes or less.

I hope you enjoy this meal with your family. There is a video below and a
printable version of the recipe too.

Simple Scones

There is nothing better than a scone in the morning with your coffee or tea as you watch the sunrise for a new day ahead of you. My grandmother was known as “Nana” made at least what she called, “Pan Scones”. Nana had all the yummy recipes from her Scottish heritage! Nana‘s “Pan” Scones was a favorite of our family every time she came for a visit. My dad took over after she stopped visiting and now I’m making the scones for us.

I now have the recipe and enjoy making them all the time for my family. They sort of look like an English muffin and yet they are really nothing like it! They are soft, a little denser and you would not toast them.

The recipe is oh so delicious and simple and easy to make. Here are the recipe notes at the bottom and also the video link to my YouTube where you can see how I make them. I hope you give this a try and enjoy it!

Simple Scones with a Twist

You can’t go wrong with a simple basic scone recipe.  I found this recipe on another YouTubers site (her site is Rhoda Stone).  I took her basic recipe and transformed it into my own recipe.  So below are the basic recipe that you could use and then also the other two that I created from the basic scone recipe.  Comment below if you try this recipe and tell me what you think and what you created.

Basic Simple Scones:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of butter
  • Mix your dry ingredients together
  • Next cut in the butter
  • Add 1 beaten egg and milk to mixture
  • Mix all together
  • Next add to a lightly floured counter and roll into a ball
  • Cut into 8-10 triangle pieces
  • Place on a cookie sheet
  • Beat 1 more egg
  • Lightly brush the top of the scone with an egg wash
  • Bake at 350 for 12 minutes

 

How to change this up with a twist?

Almond Scones:

  • Do the same above but add 1 teaspoon almond extract to the wet ingredients
  • After giving he egg wash sprinkle with sugar and add slivers of almonds to the top
  • Bake as normal

Orange Marmalade Scones:

  • Do the same as the above basic scone recipe and add 1 teaspoon of orange extract to the wet ingredients.
  • Add 1/4 cup of orange marmalade to the wet ingredients
  • Also add 1/2 extra cup of flour to the dry ingredients
  • Bake as normal

 

Enjoy!!!
