2 amazing musts that you gotta try

I keep meaning to post these …. Completely random but yA gotta do these! 

1. Homemade Laundry Soap

  
Mikes mother taught this to me and I’ve been using it ever since ! Less than 7 cents a load!!!

Basically 2 parts Borax

  
And 1 part Laundry Soda

  

And I add some Lavender Essential Oil  

 
So 2 cups of borax and 1 cup of soda – 6-7 drops of essential oil 

I make about 3-4 times this amount and keep it in a container on the washing machine. You only need 2 tablespoons per load 😄
2. Your Own Bacon!!!! So easy 

  
Get some sliced pork belly – super easy to find…. If yA go to a market – ask your fav butcher -!hut superstore always has it. 

We had a friends Dad raise a pig for us last year and had a bunch on our freezer.

Basically all you have to do is lay out the slices in a baking dish. Mix up 2 Tblsp sugar and 1 Tblsp of salt with 2 cups of warm water and a few shakes of liquid smoke – the second time we made it we also added 2 Tblsp of maple syrup. Let the pork belly sit in the brine for a couple of days and then cook it up….. Holy jumpins it’s good!!!!

Now go make some !!!
