Home Made Congestion Remedy

I woke up with a cold Saturday morning. Minor head congestion, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I have been taking generic Mucinex to help loosen the congestion. I found two home made congestion remedies on Pinterest to try.

The first home made congestion remedy I tried you can find here at Fitsugar. I can't begin to describe how awful the burning was from the amount of Cayenne pepper. When mixing up the recipe I thought to myself that it seemed like a little bit too much. My sinuses did loosen up mildly, but no more than from taking over the counter medicine. From the awful taste I decided that it wasn't worth trying again.

The second home made congestion remedy I tried you can find here at Good Food Matters. The taste was pretty good and not nearly as bad. Again it didn't help any better than the Mucinex medicine. I should take more of it. However, I'm not a big fan of spicy.

I'm not feeling any better than when I started the experiments. Now my ears are clogged.

Nautical Themed Baby Quilt

I made this nautical themed baby quilt not too long ago. I used the Moda Nautical and nice fabric charms.

I used a Noah's ark fabric on the back. I found a ton of it at a thrift store a while back. I have used it on the back of a lot of baby quilts.

I free motion quilted rows of waves in a cream colored thread and used a dark navy blue fabric binding.

Sausage Breakfast Casserole

We like to eat breakfast now and again for dinner. I wanted to do something different; outside of our usual routine. I searched Google for sausage breakfast casseroles and found this one.

Sausage Breakfast Casserole

It was very easy to make. It took about 15 minutes of prep before I popped it in the preheated oven. Here is what it looks like cooking.

I'll update this post later with my review and a picture of it when it came out of the oven.

Here is the finished product. I took the picture with my phone. It is slightly blurry.

This casserole was so good. All three boys and my hubby loved it. Now to get everyone raving over it is unusual at my house. They are all picky in one way or another. There was only a 1/4 of it left over and hubby ate that for breakfast. This is definitely going to become a staple. 

I did do a couple things different than the recipe. I used honey wheat bread instead of white. I also toasted it in the toaster before cutting it up. I added a touch of garlic powder and onion powder with the salt and pepper. 

Let me know if you try it! Enjoy!

How to make a kids cape

I was cutting up t-shirts and sweat shirts that belong to our eldest son today when I had a flash of genius. There was an adult large hooded sweat shirt that looked like a kids cape once I cut off the arms and the front. Our youngest son, Andrew will be four in April. I had him try on the kids cape and he loves it. He didn’t really want to pose for pictures. He is camera shy and has a hard time standing still.
