Chop Suey

Chop Suey 

What you need:

1.5 lb. ground beef
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1-2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 c. fresh mushrooms, diced
13.5 oz. box elbow macaroni (I used whole wheat)
1 (28 oz) can stewed tomatoes (I accidentally grabbed the one with onions, celery and green pepper but it turned out good)


1.  In a large skillet, cook hamburger, garlic, black pepper, onion and mushrooms.  About 7 minutes.  I would suggest draining the excess liquid off while cooking.

2.  In a pot, cook macaroni as directed on the box.  Drain.

3.  In the large skillet with the hamburger mixture, add the macaroni and stewed tomatoes.  Mix well and ENJOY!

Money Saving Tip: Clean Car Light Lens

All car owners know that after a while you headlight lens start to get cloudy which causes your headlights to be dimmer.

Now you could fork over the money to replace the lens....but who really has the money for that when the lens is perfectly fine....just a little dirty?

Or you could spend you money on the different products that air on television, saying they are specifically made to clean the lens.  Such as Wipe New or Fast Brite.  What if it doesn't work?  You just spent that money for another product that does not work!

Well, thank to a friend on Facebook, I saw this great video that is the end of all the hoping a product works.  You can use a can of mosquito repelling spray with a rag to wipe off the built up film on your headlight lens.  The best part is most of us have a can of the bug spray already so you are not wasting money...the spray just now has a dual-purpose.  Below is the video I saw with this hack!
Thank you, Haks Of Life!

Did Ya Know?

I don't know about y'all but I love learning new things and I love learning random facts that you just aren't taught in school.  For example, there are certain days that all I want to do is either lay on my couch or bed, curled up with my blanket and a good book or my netflix.

Well, there is an actual term for the excessive desire to lay down or lay in bed....clinomania.  Apparently, over 70% of people experience this on a daily basis.  Well, that explains my days that I want to just shut the world off and lay with my soft comforter.

Quote of the Week

It is that time again to share with y'all a great quote that will hopefully inspire you and maybe even start a great discussion.

Of course there are many Marilyn fans around the world and there are many people around the world that have nothing but negative things to say about her.  No matter what side you're on, Marilyn's words here are wise.  I know there are times when I have failed at something and I was so disappointed in the results that I would get in this funk that I would be under the mentality that I just wanted to give up.  But I would snap out of that funk and keep it moving, which is pretty much what this quote of Marilyn's is saying....just because you fail once, doesn't mean you just lose all pick yourself back up and keep it moving!
