Recycled Dish Scrubbie ~ More Freezer Baking
Thanks to Mooberry Farm Homesteading Journal, I have found another way to utilize my plastic net bags from my lemons, and other fruits and vegetables (vs. cutting the bags and crocheting the bags together). For directions
visit: Make an Onion Bag Dish Scrubby.
Although, for the one above in the photo, I simply crocheted directly into the lemon bag. You can also fill these types of net bags with food for birds. For more ideas visit S.C.R.A.P. Blogspot.
Scrubbie Update: I just washed dishes with it. Works as good as my other scrubbies I made:
This one (the green one) last a long time. I crocheted a rectangle of cotton yarn for the other side. I may do this also for the new scrubbies that are made from mesh bags.
And thanks to Candy again at Lazy J Bar C Farm, I pulled a container of my frozen pumpkin puree and made her Pumpkin Spice Muffins. I have enough of my puree to make another batch. I love these recipes, because they bake 18 vs. 12 and in our large family, more is better. The family gobbled these up too. They are light and I love how they come off the paper liner completely. I've made many muffins over the years, and some do stick to the liners.
And....despite all this baking, I have now lost 5.4 pounds. Yay!
