HOMEMAKING AND MAKING A HAPPY HOME to me isn’t being clutter free – that just doesn’t happen in real life, but I do like to make sure under that clutter everything is clean. One of the things I do daily so it doesn’t become a chore is keep a Scrubbing Bubbles or Clorox Wipes (whichever is on sale) container of wipes under each bathroom sink. Just before my shower, I wipe down the sink and toilet. That way it’s done daily and isn’t a big chore on the weekend. This is a TUESDAY TIP too.

TUESDAY TIP ~ When you make bacon on the weekend, save it in a pyrex storage container large enough for the grease and a can of green beans. Cover it and refrigerate. On the night you’re having green beans, open them into the pyrex and microwave for 2 minutes for flavorful green beans.

TEMPT MY TUMMY TUESDAY is the perfect place for trying new and exciting recipes.

2 cups diced ham, crumbled beef or sausage
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can green chiles, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 cups shredded mild cheddar or colby cheese
8 eggs

  • Brown meat and onions in a large skillet.
  • Add tomatoes and chiles.
  • Simmer 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
  • In a separate pan, lightly scramble the eggs.
  • Add to the meat mixture after liquid absorbed.
  • Stir in cheese until melted.
  • Serve with warm tortillas and Garden Tomato Salsa.

clutter didn’t bother me until recently .. or maybe it was that my life until recently was so cluttered that i never noticed?

anyway, found flylady.net …. and 5 minute room rescues just in time to put to use with grandchildren.


THAT is what I’m talking about!!! WOOHOOO!!! Clutter is OK as long as it’s clean underneath. Thanks! I needed to hear that. Clutter is a huge issue with me. It’s nice to know that someone else fights it, but has accepted the reality of it and works with it.

Thanks for linking up. I always like to see your posts!
