{Coop Cleaning}

I saw this awesome recipe for an all natural coop cleaning solution on this great blog I recently discovered Fresh Eggs Daily I just had to try it out!!

For this tutorial you will need:

3 Large glass Mason jars

4 Large oranges
6 Cinnamon sticks
Vanilla beans
and lots of white vinegar

I started by cutting the oranges into quarters, and then peeled them. I saved the oranges for smoothies and stuff.

I divided the peels into the Mason jars equally...

I broke the cinnamon sticks in half added them,

Then added the vanilla bean, after I cut it length wise.

Top the jars off with vinegar,

Seal and let the jars rest for about a month. I left mine on the window sill! In one months time strain and add solution to a spray bottle!

Be sure to check out Fresh Eggs Daily, and find out the benefits of cinnamon, and vanilla in your coop!

{PW Corn Dogs}

I've heard so much about this PW lady I just had to check out her blog...for those of you who aren't familiar {you probably all know her already} PW means or is The Pioneer Woman. I will admit she is pretty awesome, has her own TV show, cook book, garden, blah blah blah...So anyways as I was surfing her blog I came across a corn dog recipe, of course I had to try it!!

For PW corn dogs you will need:
- 3 cups Pancake mix
- 1 cup Cornmeal
- 1 egg
- 3 cups of water
- hotdogs
- some sticks {I used shishkabob sticks, she suggested chop sticks, but who knows where you can buy those at?}
- Oh and one deep fryer or hot pan of oil

Mix your dry ingredients

Next add your egg lightly beaten, and water to desired thickness

I found super thick was the easiest when it came to coating the hotdogs, but just do whatever works best for you.

Stick your dogs, coat, and fry until golden brown, and eat :)

Le' Corndog!
