Tetons

How do I love thee Tecnu? Let me count the ways...

1. I can get you at Walgreens.
2. You remove poison ivy and poison oak oils.
3. You smell nice.
4. It doesn't break the bank when I buy you.
5. Should I find myself in a storm of nuclear fallout, I can use you to clean my skin.
6. The bottle is pretty big.
7. You can clean stuff, not just people and pets.
8, 9, and 10. You removed SKUNK SPRAY from the Frugaldog late last night so she didn't have to sleep outside in the sub-freezing temperatures.

Like most moms I am always trying to get my kids to eat more vegetables. Last summer when I was overrun with summer squash I finely shredded a lot and froze it in bags. I have discovered that I can add the finely shredded squash to spaghetti sauce and the kids don't even notice! It looks like grated parmesan cheese and is undetectable in taste or texture. Yay for sneaky vegetables!

Frugaldad spent two years living in Eastern Germany as a missionary. The people had just spent decades living under communism and many were atheists. The membership in the church was small so most nights the missionaries fed themselves, and they were lucky to be invited to Sunday dinners.
