Project Name & Page Link: Padscicles
Brief Description: This might be the weirdest craft project I’ve ever made. They are intended to help heal & repair your lady parts after giving birth. Basically they are pads, coated in aloe vera, witch hazel & a few drops of essential oil, then placed in the freezer. Frida mom makes some that cost $20 for 8 pads. I made 20 pads for about $13. (I was out of aloe vera, and my witch hazel had expired. LOL) Plus I now have plenty of aloe & witch hazel to make more if needed.

Project Name & Page Link: Beef Stew Freezer Meals
Brief Description: My ongoing quest to fill the freezer with homemade meals for after Godzilla arrives continues with Crockpot Beef Stew. My exact recipe varies a bit each time I make it, based on what I have on hand, but it’s pretty close to this. This time I added a giant parsnip that was hanging around, and replaced the vegetable juice with tomato paste and a dash of Kitchen Bouquet. I topped it with chopped celery leaves. The recipe made dinner on Saturday, and 2 more meals to add to the freezer stash. That leaves me with 34+ frozen dinners, since the lemon chicken soup & chicken satay meals both make enough for at least 2 meals.
