I guess I picked a good day to login and check my messages! I was just checking out some of the recipes posted in the fitness section because I was looking for a “treat” so they say. I saw the S’mores bites posted at Grocerybudget101.com this morning and they were under 100 calories.
I love those 100 cal posts, keep’em coming. We don’t have a lot planned here, sunday is kind of our lazy day. I do have to bathe the dog today, but he loves it, so it’s not really a problem.
I was thinking of maybe trying a new crockpot or dump recipe too, any ideas anyone?
I don’t know what it is about me, but the last few weeks I have been craving a smooth creamy cheesecake! I’ve come across about 20 recipes tonight alone and want to make them ALL.
Buy Popcorn Seeds.
Plant when you would normally plant sweet corn, just don’t plant popcorn and sweet corn near each other in the garden so that they don’t cross pollinate. Cross pollination will cause your popcorn to pop poorly and will make your sweet corn hard and tough to eat. Yellow popcorn is traditional “movie popcorn”, popping up large and chewy.
White popcorn tends to be smaller and crunchier.
Plant seeds according to directions on their package. This usually will be in rows or hills two to three feet apart. Three or four rows, four or five feet long should produce enough popcorn to last a season.
The plants should be set 12 to 15 inches apart in the rows, or three plants per hill. Fertilize 12-12-12 fertilizer
In a hot climate, a mulch of grass clippings will reduce the amount of water needed by the popcorn plants.
Harvesting Your Popcorn: About early October, your popcorn should be ready to harvest. The stalks will be mostly brown, the husks will be dry and the kernels hard. Try popping a few kernels on the stove in a pan of hot oil at this stage; if most of them pop, that’s your sign to remove the ears from the stalks. Husk the ears, place them in a mesh bag or old nylon stocking to cure for two to three weeks in a warm, dry, well ventilated area.
Again, pop a few kernels; if they pop, strip the kernels from the cobs and store the kernels in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
Is It Popcorn Yet? 13% moisture level is ideal. Popcorn that is chewy after popping is still too wet; let the kernels dry some more, popping a few every couple of days until the popcorn is no longer chewy.
If you get too many unpopped kernels, add moisture to the storage container. Pour one tablespoon of water over a quart of popcorn, shake it up a couple of times on Day 1. By Day 3, try popping another batch.
Repeat this procedure until most of the kernels are popping.August 13, 2008 at 2:53 pm in reply to: Need a manufacturer for my nutritional supplements range of products!!! #397690
Sorry, Wish I could help, No Idea have I.

I love using this so I can figure out which ads to Price Match for walmart. It makes things so much easier and I like that its Free! I was paying for another similar product and then discovered this, Kudo’s to B101!
haha, I got a “Hat” sizer, to measure my hubbys head.
lol, You can probably make this on your own for 1/10 of the cost. You can get tea tree oil at walmart for $4.86 (For an entire Bottle!!) and a 24 oz Bottle of Pure Aloe Vera for $1.77, add your own chamomile & Calendula flower essential oils (a few drops of each oughtta do it) and voila, you have over 25 oz of your own soap for less than half the price (with the discount) and you don’t have the wheat or chemicals in it.
Their product contains triclosan- which is known to disrupt thryoid function.
dangers of Triclosan:
Did you know it can ACCUMULATE in your body if you continue to use it?!!
Thanks for the Dis’ Q’ gymz, but I think I’ll pass on this one.
