Catching Up

This morning we conquered cleaning the oven!  I've been putting it off for months!  Though the hubby even offered to help.  I think that's what made it go so much quicker.  I read online this morning the easiest way to clean an oven the "green" way is to put baking soda on the baked on spots, spray with water and leave over night.  Then in the morning just wipe away with a cloth.  Even saw a You-Tube video.  That wasn't going to help me.  We're having Family Night at our house tonight which means we're in charge of dinner.  I also wanted to bake today!

So I got out a scrapper and scrapped what we could off of the oven.  Then I sprayed it with a homemade all purpose cleaner and some bon ami and then let it sit for about 10-15 min.  Then I took steel wool and scrubbed.  The honey scrubbed here too.  Then we just wiped clean with a wet microfiber cloth.

I ran out to our local whole foods co-op and picked up some ingredients for today's baking list that I wasn't able to find at our big grocery store.  In the oven now is simple bread from the wheat belly cookbook.  I also ran to Ben Franklin this morning to pick up some 100% wool yarn to make dryer balls to throw in with the cloth diapers but also for the rest of the laundry to cut the drying time in half.

Next on the list is to make flat bread and wraps.  All wheat free.  Later today we have to find a longer dryer vent and some creative storage ideas for home made laundry detergent, cleaners, and cloth diapering accessories!
