Instead of spending $200+ on a homecoming dress for her daughter (that would only be used once!), Holly shopped at Goodwill and found a beautiful dress that just needed a little altering.
Holly's daughter is tall, and the dress that is supposed to touch the floor was about 2" too short. They decided to go with a knee length look to solve this problem. We got out a ruler and using a sharpie (so we could see the marks), marked where she wanted the hem to be PLUS 1" for hemming. We cut off the hem right at the sharpie mark and hemmed the dress so that it hit right at the knee.
The dress also had an underskirt that now stuck out beyond the hem of the dress. We cut off the underskirt and then attached it to a slip. This way she could still have the fullness of the dress... or not. Her choice.
This was a store bought slip that we cut off the top and then zigzagged the underskirt to it. It didn't need to look pretty since no one would see it.
Here's the finished dress, and adding a pretty black shrug will be the perfect thrifty (and modest) Prom/Homecoming dress!!

*If using some whole grain flour, mix it with the warm water, sugar, yeast, butter and salt, cover with plastic and set aside to rest for about 30 minutes. This method will soften the bran and liven up the yeast. After the rest, add the remaining all purpose flour less 1/2 cup and follow the remaining steps.

Skype to Go numbers let you call friends, family and colleagues long distance at great Skype rates from any mobile or landline.
Let’s say you live in New York and your friend lives in Australia. You’d like to call her when you’re away from your computer, but you don’t want to pay those hefty international call charges on your mobile or landline.
Just give us your friend’s number in Australia and we’ll convert it into a local Skype to Go number that you can call from any phone.
Next time you’d like to call your friend, dial her Skype to Go number and you’ll get straight through at Skype’s per minutes rates or with your subscription.
What a Call Costs
Call via a Skype to Go number to phones abroad are made up of two charges:
Operator: Your operator will charge you for a local call to your Skype to Go number. This may be included as part of your operator’s calling plan.
You will not be charged if you are calling a number covered by your subscription.
Skype: Skype will charge you the same low rate as if you were calling a phone using Skype on your computer.
#1 You have a landline that includes local calling. You also have a Skype account, but do not have a subscription to a specific plan. You call China. You don’t get charged anything extra from your local phone company. Skype’s charge for calling China on your account (from Henderson, NV) is .026 USD/minutes (including VAT). The charge is deducted from your Skype account.
#2 You have a landline that includes local calling. You also have a Skype account and a monthly international subscription. You call China. You don’t get charged anything extra from your local phone company or Skype.
The same applies if you make the call from your mobile and the mobile’s local call rates apply.
How to Get Started
1) Go to skype.com and create an account. Download the Skype software to your computer and you are ready to make Skype-to-Skype calls for free!
2) If you wish to make other calls with Skype, you will need to add money to your account. Then you can decide if you’d rather pay per minute at Skype’s low rates, or subscribe to a plan which will allow you to make calls at even lower rates depending on how many calls you plan to make.
3) Once you have money in your account, you can enable Skype-To-Go, which allows you to make calls via Skype from any landline or mobile.
Skype – What is it?
Free/Pay as you Go/Subscriptions
Skype is a software supplication that allows users to make voice and video calls, as well as instant messaging over the internet. Calls to other users within the Skype service are free, while calls to both traditional landline telephones and mobile phones can be made for a fee using a debit-based user account system or monthly subscriptions.
Cooked wheat may be bagged and stored in the refrigerator for at least a week or in the freezer for months.
Crockpot Wheat Berries (this is my favorite method) 4 cups raw whole wheat
10 cups water
1 TBSP salt
Oil a large (4 quart or larger) slow cooker and fill with wheat, water, and salt. Cover and cook on low all night, 8-10 hours.
Stovetop Wheat Berries
1 cup wheat berries
4 cups water
Boil for 60-70 minutes, topping with water as needed. You can reduce cooking time to 50-60 minutes if you pre-soak your wheat overnight (you can boil them in the same water you soaked them in). Drain after cooking, when wheat is tender.
Pressure Cooker Wheat Berries by Alton Brown
2 cups wheat berries
4 cups water
2 TBSP salt
Place all ingredients into a pressure cooker and cook on high heat until hissing begins and pressure rises. Lower heat to maintain hissing and cook for 45 minutes.
Here's a few different recipes for you to try. See which one you like best! Blender Pancakes (this is the recipe we made on Tuesday night!)by Everyday Food Storage
1 cup milk (translation for powdered milk is 3 TBSP milk and 1 cup water)
1 cup wheat kernels, whole & uncooked (also known as wheat berries)
2 eggs (2 TBSP powdered eggs ¼ cup water)
2 tsp baking powder
1 ½ tsp salt
2 TBSP oil
2 TBSP honey or sugar
Put milk and wheat kernels in blender.Blend on highest speed for 4 or 5 minutes or until batter is smooth. Add eggs, oil, baking powder, salt and honey or sugar to above batter. Blend on low. Pour out batter into pancakes from the actual blender jar (only one thing to wash!) onto a hot greased or Pam prepared griddle or large frying pan. Cook; flipping pancakes when bubbles pop and create holes.
1 ½ cups buttermilk
2 TBSP butter, melted
1 cup uncooked whole wheat kernels
2 TBSP cornmeal, heaping
1 TBSP brown sugar
½ tsp baking soda
1 TBSP baking powder
Heat an electric frying pan or griddle to medium heat. Pour buttermilk into blender. Add the wheat kernels and blen on high for 10 minutes. It will sound like popping corn at first but will gradually become quieter. Add cornmeal, brown sugar, eggs, and melted butter, and blend another minute. Then add baking soda and baking powder and blend only a few seconds longer. Stir batter a little by hand to completely combine ingredients. Spoon onto hot griddle.
Blender Pancakes by DVO.com
1 cup golden whole wheat
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Blend 1 cup of milk with wheat for 2-3 minutes add rest of milk and blend for another 2-3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Cook on a hot skillet until done.
2 cups mixed berries
3 TBSP sugar
Mix together and let stand for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Here is a link for Everyday Food Storage Blender Pancakes YouTube video . It is a GREAT video, so check it out. It makes blender pancakes a lot less scary :)
Pre-Soaked Wheat Blender Pancakes by Bee Prepared
If you are worried about your blender being able to handle Wheat Blender Pancakes, try this recipe.
1 cup whole wheat berries
1 cup milk
1 ½ TBSP honey
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
Cover wheat with about 1 cup of water and soak in the refrigerator overnight. Next morning, drain and blend with milk in a blender for 4 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend 3 more minutes. Cook on hot girddle.
I'll be posting the rest of the recipes over the next couple days!!
Lemon Bars (with Whole Wheat) by Jamie Perkins (page 179 in the Galleria Gourmet)
1 cup butter
½ cup powdered sugar
½ tsp salt
2 cups whole wheat flour
4 eggs, slighly beaten
2 cups sugar
½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup lemon juice
Cream butter and powdered sugar. Add other crust ingredients and mix. Pat into 9 x 13 greased pan. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Mix filling and pour over hot crust. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Grease two loaf pans. Put yeast, water and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Let stand until bubbly and doubled. Add remaining ingredients. Mix and let rise until doubled in size. Knead down and divide into loaf pans. Let rise again. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. **Splenda brown sugar may be substituted, use half of the amount called for.
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
2 cups semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9" x 13" pan; line the pan with parchment paper if desired.
2. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine.
3. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly just till it's hot (about 110°F to 120°F) but not bubbling. Don't worry if it separates; just stir it briefly to recombine a bit. Heating this mixture a second time will dissolve more of the sugar, which will yield a shiny top crust on your brownies.
4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, and stir in the cocoa, salt, baking powder, and vanilla.
5. Add the eggs, stirring till smooth.
6. Then add the flour and chips, again stirring till smooth. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
7. Bake the brownies for 30 minutes, until a cake tester or sharp knife poked into the center reveals wet crumbs, but not raw batter. The brownies should feel set on the edges and in the center. Remove them from the oven, and cool completely on a rack.
8. Cover and let sit overnight before cutting and serving; this gives the bran a chance to soften and become "invisible" in your mouth.
Thanks to Faith for attending Self-Reliant Sisters and sending me these Raw Food recipes for the dehydrator! Click on the links below to download the PDF files for the recipes mentioned below.
"You've probably heard of the raw food movement. There is a subsection of vegetarians that eat strictly raw food. Raw is classified as a food whose enzymes have not been inactivated by heat application (>105). The dehydrator can process foods to meet this criteria."
I've attached recipes for the "Come Bite the Apple" cookie, "Apple Flax Cookie", and for "Onion Bread". I added walnuts, dried cranberries, and the little plug remnants from pitting cherries to the recipe. The "Nama Shoyu" ingredient in the onion bread recipe is actually organic soy sauce. The onion bread is awesome with soup and as a snack bread.
Making fresh "Zucchini Wraps" is great alternative to bread consumption. You can make them in advance and store them for up to a month in the frig. Search You Tube to see how to make them. They are so aromatic when processing that it can be a challenge to wait until they're done (even a bigger challenge for the cookies!)."
1 2/3 cups dry apple slices (we used apples from the Cannery)
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 ½ cups water
2 tsp lemon juice
Mix all dry ingredients together, then add water and mix well. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. If baking in a pie, preheat oven to 425 degrees, place in oven and bake 40 minutes or until golden brown in pastry shell (May use peeled and sliced fresh apples - enough to fill pie crust.)
Topping (use pie filling above)
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup butter
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup rolled oats
6 TBSP sugar
Mix together thoroughly and spread over pie filling. Bake in a greased square pan at 375 for 25 minutes.
Price matching, couponing & seasonal shopping are some of the many ways to shop smart.
Price matching: Some stores will match the prices of their competitors, in the hopes that you will shop with them instead of their competition. Of course, often the competition does the same thing. Price matching can be done at many stores such as Staples, Best Buy, Target, Lowes, Home Depot & Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart is my favorite store to price match at, since they also price match groceries. Here is the complete post on Price Matching at Wal-Mart
Couponing: This is an excellent way to get items at a discounted price. Many stores will also take their competitors coupons such as Michaels will take Joanns coupons and Staples will take Office Max coupons, etc. There are also many couponing blogs out there. I cannot hope to cover all that they do, so here is a list of my favorite coupon blogs. These blogs will tell you everything you need to know about couponing and how to get started.
Seasonal Shopping: This is buying things during their lowest price of the year, such as turkey and baking supplies in November. Purchasing items when they go on clearance is also a great way to stock up. I buy all my Christmas wrapping paper in January when it is 75% off. Here is a great article from Moms By Heart about Yearly Sales and Clearance Cycles
Buy at the Lowest Price Point: When things have a long shelf life, stock up on that item when it hits it's lowest price point! For example at the last Smiths Case Lot Sale, they had tuna for .50 a can. I know we eat about 1 can a week, so I bought 50 cans which is enough to last us about 1 year. Here is A Thrifty Mom's explanation on this same principle.
Buy Online: Sometimes the best prices for non grocery items can be found online. Amazon.com & Ebay are my two favorite places for lower prices. Many items have free shipping as well! Do your research and you’ll be able to get some great deals!
Here is a list of some of the grocery stores in town, their websites and what days their ads run. Most sales run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday, any exceptions are listed below. In addition many Spanish Markets run specials on Wednesdays that I do not list on the "Grocery Deals of the Week". There are other stores that you can price match from, however they do not have online websites.
Walmart is the only grocery store (currently) that will Price Match.
You must have your ads with you.
Walmart will price match grocery ads & Sunday newspaper ads (Best Buy, Walgreens, CVS, Office Max, etc).
Item must be identical to the sale item in the ad (meaning same brand, size, type, etc).
Walmart WILL price match Store Brands. For example - Walmart will match Kroger/Smiths bread on sale for Walmarts "Great Value" Bread.
Walmart will only price match printed (not online) ads.
Walmart will take manufacturers coupons, but not other stores coupons.
If a printed ad says (limit 2), then you will only be able to price match 2 of that item. Of course you can always buy 2 more the next day...
Walmart will not price match "Buy one get one Free" or any other type of BOGO sales.
Walmart will not price match items that come with an instant rebate/savings, or other such item.
Walmart will not price match meats and chicken if it comes from the Smiths/Albertsons butcher shop. Well, sometimes (very rarely) they will, but I wouldn't count on it!
Each Walmart manager sets the limits on which stores they will price match from. Walmarts will NOT price match ads from stores that are MILES away. So don't expect to bring an ad from Utah (to Nevada) and get those prices :)
Price Matching Guidelines
Holly is the queen of price matching. Here she shares her tips on price matching.
Go when the lines are not busy and without children if possible.
Shop on the same day and try to go to the same cashier.
Price match at the end of the order & let the cashier know you will be price matching. Separate them with a bar or a space on the grocery belt.
Tell the person behind you that you will be price matching. This way they won't get irritated if you take a little longer than normal. (hopefully)
Many Walmarts are MUCH friendlier at price matching than other Walmarts. Know your stores. The neighborhood Walmart at Stephanie/American Pacific & Warm Springs/Eastern are great to price match at. The Super Walmart is much stricter (and not as friendly).
Bring your ads & have them ready!! Holly circles the items that she is price matching, so she is able to show the checker quickly if needed.
Be Organized! On my grocery list I circle the items that I am price matching in green. That way, when the checker asks me what the price of milk is, I can quickly check my list for the correct price. I'm sure Holly doesn't need to do this, she has all prices memorize :)
Be courteous! Don't demand that an item be price matched. If they say no, you can either buy it at regular price or try again at a different Walmart or another day with a different cashier.
Know what dates the ads start and end.
Price Matching Prices
Each week I feature our "Grocery Deals of the Week". These are a basic price guideline to follow on things like chicken, ground beef, fruits and vegetables. It is not a complete list of all the good deals that week, although I wish I was grocery savvy enough to do that for you. SO, here are some guidelines for YOU to follow in order to get the best deals with price matching.
Know your prices. Sometimes the "Everyday Low Price" at Walmart is cheaper than the sale price at other stores.
Know your price point. Holly will not pay more than .50 for fruit, .08 oz for cereal and $1.50 for boneless skinless chicken breasts & ground beef. My price point is higher than that, so set your price point and watch for your items to hit that price.
Stock up when the items you regularly use hits it's lowest price. I usually buy 20 lbs of chicken/ground beef when it goes on sale. For dry/canned goods, I will buy as much I think we'll use before it hits the expiration date.
Sales usually run in a 12 Week Cycle. So about every 12 weeks chicken/meat/etc. will be on sale again. If you can't afford to buy a ton of a sale item, try to buy enough to last you for 12 weeks.
Seasonal Items. There are certain times of the year that items will hit their lowest price. Thanksgiving - turkey & baking items, August - back to school items, etc. For a more detailed list click here.
Don't buy something just because it's on sale. At one of the Smiths sales I bought 45 cans of Campbell's Chunky Soup because it was on sale for .66 cents a can. We don't even eat Campbell's soup, so I ended up donating it to the food bank.
The Smith's (grocery store) has a case lot sale twice a year. This usually happens right around General Conference (April and October). The case lot sale has deep discounts on different grocery items when you buy them by the case. When the case lot sale comes out, we will be posting what the great deals are. Sometimes a few of the items on sale are a not a good deal.
CASE LOT SALE GUIDELINES
Buy what your family will eat.
Just because an item is featured in the case lot sale, does not mean it is a great price.
Set extra money aside each month for the case lot sale.
Be aware of your limits. (example: Limit 2 cases)
Do not plan on rain checks. Go early and take friends.

A dial gauge canner has a pressure dial on the top that allows you to read the pressure inside the canner during the canning process. Dial gauges operate from 0- to 25-pounds of pressure, with most recipes and canning instructions calling for a pressure of either 6- or 11-pounds of pressure. Dial gauges MUST be tested every year for accuracy. Your dial gauge will be tested against a Master Gauge which will determine if your gauge is accurate, if you can compensate for your gauge being off, or if your gauge needs to be replaced.
If the gauge-reading is off by one or more pounds, you are encouraged to purchase a new gauge. If it is off less than one pound, remind yourself of the difference and adjust the recipe’s ressure accordingly to allow for the difference. Incorrect readings will lead to unsafe foods that are under-processed or over-processed.
Replacement gauges and other parts (e.g. gaskets, safety plugs) for canners are often found at stores that sell food preservation equipment or from canner manufacturers. When ordering parts, be sure to provide your canner model number and describe the parts you need.
Here are the recipes that we sampled during Relief Society Activity (Self-Reliant Sisters) on May 3rd.

You may have thought this time of year
Meant jellybeans and eggs,
And unsuspecting, fluffy chaps
With furry, hopping legs.
But, here’s the proof
That Easter Bunny’s got a wicked streak.
Don’t reach under that lawn chair
‘til you stop and take a peek.
‘Cause though you may be looking
For those chocolate eggs and loot.
You might just find that morsel there
Is really Bunny Poop!
