Freezing Store Bought Tomato Sauce

Freezing store bought tomato sauce? You don't say. Yes, yes you can freeze store bought tomato sauce. I buy my tomato sauce for tacos, spaghetti, and chili ect. in the Costco #10 size can.

This is how much I got from…

The Phone Call I Wish I Never Answered

Is it dead of night and, as always, my brain won't shut off and I just keep thinking. I keep thinking about the phone call I got when my mom died. Rehashing that moment over and over.

Perspective

This post is a rambling of thoughts on Perspective. When somebody close to your age dies it really puts life into perspective. It makes you want to be a better person because your own mortality is put right in front of you. You don't want to waste away a single minute that you've been given.

Blogging Mistakes Newbies Make

Backgrounds that are hard to read on When you have white on black background it hurts the eyes. Or light color on dark color. Please have black on white. If you want a color or background picture make it so it’s not the primary background Music Turn off the music! Nothing bugs me more than opening a blog or website and having there be music. It’s worse if the speakers are turned up due to…

Becoming our Mother’s

It is amazing to me how much mother's and daughter's become alike. Alternately titled: What Message are We Sending Our Daughter's? The older I get the more I see myself respond to things the way my mother did. Lord help me. And The Principal. My mother sometimes responded strongly to things. As many traits she had that I am proud to also have, there are a few that I need to work on. Her ability…
