It is that time of year....BULK PICKUP....
I always seem to find something to redo..honestly I was not looking...This was put out by the neighbor...
My husband goes crazy when I drag random"junk" as he calls it into our backyard, so I try not to let him see...hahahah...
I dragged this beauty as well as a screen window out behind the garage until the next day when I could work on it...he has yet to say anything, so I am not sure if he noticed...

Believe it or not...I never had to paint a thing except the shelf I added...the sign is from the dollar store, everything else I had already...woohoo...

Bling Skull with roses duster outfit

Skull with Roses Ttshirt 5 below link

Vintage Rose Duster..
I have loved this duster all summer, but now I wanted to transition it to a fall look, so I found a t shirt at 5 Below store, but it only came in youth sizes, and I really am not into the sausage casing look when it comes to "the girls", so I just cut it out and glued it to another shirt with fabric adhesive...and while I had the glue out of course I found some jewels and gems to add also...I cannot tell you how many compliments I have been getting on this outfit...I just wear it with my ripped up jeans and  high black boots..

Summer look

Fall look

Bling bling bling

Hah ha just fit perfect...

Glam Rhinestone Skull Restyled from $ store

 I had this lil plastic skull...not by any means made well...kind of cheap plastic, but it was a rainy gloomy day, so I got to playing in my broken jewelry box....I have to say this dollar skull looks high end glamour as long as no one picks it up and sees the sticker on the bottom...hee hee...
The spider was black and from the dollar store also...I have to say I LOVE THEM!!

Instant Pot Taco meat from Frozen Ground Beef

  • Place a trivet in the bottom of your Instant Pot.
  • Add 1/2  cup water for every pound of meat and seasoning.
  • Add frozen ground chuck on top of the trivet, in one big frozen chunk.
  • Lock the lid, close the sealing valve, and select 20 minutes of pressure cooking on high (manual button) per pound of meat.
  • Open lid after releasing pressure. Use saute' setting to finish cooking meat breaking it apart.
  • Add more water if needed depending on how moist you like your meat.

Please note...this recipe is using ground chuck . If your beef is not super lean you will have to drain the fat off, so do not add your seasoning until after the 20 minute processing time.I would add it when you saute' the meat..

Instant Pot Canned Salsa

Don't ya just love this Instant pot by Pioneer Woman??? This is Vintage Floral...ooooh..I just love it in my shabby chic kitchen... The Instant Pot Pioneer Woman LUX60 is a 6-quart, 6-in-1 multi-cooker that functions as a programmable pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, sauté pan, steamer, and warmer.
I got mine at Walmart for 99.00. I have to be honest...the orange color in the flowers had to go...I used my Dremel with a sandpaper attachment and sanded off all the orange..I then used my pink auto paint and  clear sealer to paint over the bare metal areas...Sorry not sorry  Ree Drummond..



Let me start off by saying....the USDA, as a result, has not tested the Instant Pot for food safety in pressure-canning. You can, however, do boiling-water(steam) canning.
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro

  • 7 cloves Garlic

  • 1 3/4 cups Green bell pepper

  • 5 Jalapenos

  • 1 T. lime juice

  • 3 cups Onion

  • 10 cups Tomatoes
12 oz Tomato paste
16 oz Tomato sauce

2 1/2 tsp Black pepper, coarsely ground

2 1/2 tbsp sea salt

1/3 cup Sugar

1 1/4 cups Apple cider vinegar

2 1/2 tsp Cumin, ground
You can chop all these ingredients and combine for a chunky salsa, or pulse a few times in a food processor for a restaurant style salsa.. either way it is DELICIOUS.. 
Jar Preparation
*Sterilize mason jars and new lids in a pot of boiling water for 15 minutes. 
*Drain them on a paper towel and then immediate fill with hot salsa. 
*Wipe off the rims to make sure the lids will seal. 
*Put on the lids and screw them down.
1. Use the trivet to keep jars off the bottom which could cause breakage.
2. Make sure your Instant Pot is at the vented setting.
3. Make sure you use heated filled jars.
4. Higher altitudes  need to add 10 minutes to the process time.
5. Add a penny to the bottom of your Instant pot so you know there is still water in it, and it is boiling...the penny will rattle.
6. For a 6 quart size pot, I use 4 cups of water, plus a tablespoon of vinegar to keep my jars sparkling.
7. Push your steam setting
8. Once you see steam coming out of your vent set it for 35 minutes.
9. After the 35 minutes is complete press cancel.
10. Open your Instant pot lid so the steam is away from you.
11.Remove your jars and let cool on a towel or rack ...making sure all lids are sealed “pops” and is concave

Special Note:
4 pint jars fit perfect in my 6 quart Instant Pot as well as 13 (4 oz. ) jars  or 7 (8 0z) jars.
