It’s as American as Sweet Potatuh Puddin’!

Y’all, I didn’t have this post planned for this week but I just can’t resist.  It hit me like a ton of bricks this morning that I hadn’t done any planning for our Thanksgiving meal yet.  Thanksgiving is. . .uh. . .next week?!  Therefore, out came my prized recipe book.  You know, the one that has the recipes that I’ve clipped and saved over the years?  This recipe book also happens to have the recipes that I prepare for my family on special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Therefore, not only does it have sentimental value to me but it also means that my family might go hungry on a Holiday if I lose it! 😉

This particular recipe is one that is a staple on my Thanksgiving table.  It’s essentially candy in a casserole dish.  In fact, Mr. FVF refers to it as “Candy Casserole”. It’s seriously sooooo good!

Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the prep or finished product because. . .well, it’s not Thanksgiving yet.  I’ll try to remember to take some when I’m prepping it for Thanksgiving and add them to the post later. However, I didn’t want to wait to share it in case someone else wants to try it for their Thanksgiving table!

Chit Chat: What’s behind The Frugal Virginia Farmhouse?

What is the Frugal Virginia Farmhouse? Well, that’s an explanation that might require a glass of sweet tea and a rocking chair. Get comfy, Sugar!

Before we get much deeper into this, I’m gonna take a step back and let you in on something — I’m still figuring this blogging thing out and I’m at a point where I’m a bit confused.  Also feeling a tad overwhelmed, I guess.  In a way, I feel compelled to “categorize” what the blog is about.  If you’re a regular blog reader, you’ll know there are blogs about all sorts of different topics.  Basically anything you want to know about, there is a blog to cover it.  It even goes beyond just a blog — many also have Facebook groups, Pinterest pages, podcasts, vlogs, YouTube channels, Instagram, Twitter, the list goes on and on.  Perhaps The Frugal Virginia Farmhouse will one day have presence in other places, but for now I’m giving myself the license to start small and really turn this little corner into something special before I take on much more.  I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew! 😉  That, and I barely know how to navigate my own Facebook profile!  Pinterest, I’ve got down though.  I’m a pinnin’ fool!

However, I’m still working through how to define the blog.  In a sense, I feel like it’s only fair to those of you who follow & read the blog that I be able to tell you what to expect.  I understand that there needs to be something tangible that brings you here and keeps you coming back. Other than my sparkling personality, that is!

Frugal Fridays: Food Storage

frugal friday, food storage, frugality

Y’all.  I’m obsessed. . .obsessed. . .with mason jars.  Not just mason jars, but especially mason jars.  I use mason jars for all sorts of things: canning, decorating, flower vases, gifts in a jar, bathroom storage (seriously. . .that’s what holds my toothbrush, cotton balls, and Qtips in our bathroom – not all in the same jar, of course!) and the list goes on and on.  However, one of the most prevalent and earliest uses of jars in the Frugal Farmhouse was in the form of food storage.
