Frugal Friday- Gardening Tip

I have been working on getting my garden all together and everything planted. I will post some pictures in a future post once it is all finished. My parents used to garden and just love working in the yard and they passed that love onto me. When I am out working in my garden I feel connected to my parents. I miss them.

 Anyways on to the gardening tip... to help keep creepy crawlies out of your plants so, that they do not eat them keep your eggshells, crush them, and then mix them into your soil. The eggshells scratch their bodies as they try to crawl in the soil and they obviously don't like that, so it keeps them away from your plants!

The Bowling Alley

In Heber, they have an old bowling alley that we love to go to! It is retro inside and has a fun atmosphere. The kids love to bowl and we love the food! Every now and then I just love a good ol' greasy burger and the ones here are worth the calories. 

I always order their "English Chips" instead of regular fries. They are just so good. When I was in high school we lived in New Zealand for 18 months, Buff was born and raised in New Zealand, and I just miss the fish 'n' chips there. These English chips hit home for me! Although the food is great I think the drinks are even better. They make old school syrup homemade Cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke! It is worth going there for just the Coke alone, I think! 
If you should ever find yourself in the Heber Valley in Utah, you should stop in the bowling alley and give it a try!

Memorial Day- Broccoli Slaw

Picture from Rea Gun

We had a bbq to go to about a week ago and we were in charge of bringing the cole slaw. I had seen this recipe on our cute friend's blog, Rea Gun Ramblings, and had to give it a try! It turned out great and was a big hit! It had a lot of flavor and was really easy to throw together! I will definitely be making this one again! The best thing is there is no mayo in this so it is a lot lower in calories! 

Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe, Rea Gun!
