Picketpost Mountain AZ

Image
About 40 miles east of Phoenix, and right on the outskirts of Superior, sits Picketpost Mountain. Many enjoy hiking the mountain which is near the Superstition Mountains. The story is told that a mailbox was placed on the top of the mountain and holds the log books for the Picketpost Mountain Trail. We went there in search of Apache Tears and we did find some. I did a post on Apache Tears. Here is the link:  Apache Tears (echoesofthesouthwest.com)

Getting Rid of Plastic

Image
I am getting rid of plastic in my home and sticking with glass containers and wood cooking utensils. I want to do better for the environment. I started with my kitchen and working my way around my house. I am either making products or buying those that are environmentally safe for cleaning and laundry. I want my kids and grandkids to have a clean and safe world. This grandma is doing her part. I am also making my own coffee creams, which is fun. I drink lots of teas and bought a teapot with a diffuser. I can make coffee in it too. I had fun making labels on my cricut joy machine. These bottles once had milk in them. I got them at the grocery store.

Dutch Oven Cooking

Image
I bought myself a 6 quart Dutch oven last year and I love it. I wanted a smaller one, so I bought a 4.3 quart Dutch oven. I use them all the time. I also purchased a Dutch oven cook book to see what fabulous meals I can make. Here are some of the meals I have made so far: Chicken Noodle Soup Chili homemade bread (yum!) Tomato Soup Hungarian Goulash Cheeseburger Soup My Mom's Spaghetti Sauce Bread
