Poison Ivy / Vegetation Killer 1 cup salt 8 drops liquid detergent 1 gallon vinegar Combine the salt and vinegar in a pan and heat to dissolve the salt. Cool the vinegar, add the detergent, and pour some of the liquid into a large spray bottle. Spray the vegetation. (You can also just pour the mixture onto the weeds.) Refill the spray bottle as necessary. Note that this formula will kill all the vegetation, so make sure that you are only spraying the plants you want to kill. If you need to use a lot of this spray, avoid spraying it near wells, as the salt can leach into your water supply. If you have to kill Poison Ivy near Plants you want to keep just use a Plastic Tray held upright on the ground to Shield what you don't want Sprayed, a Large Plastic Jug with the top & bottom cut off, like a gallon Milk Jug is Great for this. Place it over the Small Poison Ivy Plant & it will only affect the Ivy its self.
Want Great and healthy side dish? Marinate sliced Tomatoes with balsamic vinegar for 4-6 hours. Bake at 350 for about 7 minutes or a little tender. Meanwhile, sauté spinach and garlic with a dash of salt, pepper and lemon juice. Put spinach on top of tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese of your choice (I use Mozzarella) and broil till cheese is golden! These can be easily made while Roasting a Chicken or any other Dish made in the Oven for a Simple Side Dish with Great Flavor, Enjoy!
They are a Great Way to get Kids to Eat Fresh Produce, its like a Little Pizza.
Pancake Bacon Dippers, These are easy to make & Great for a Meal or a Quick Snack. Just put Pancake Batter in a Pan and place a Precooked Bacon Slice on Top then cover with more Batter, Cook as you would any Pancake. You can Sprinkle them with Powdered Sugar, Dip Them in Syrup or Jam. I make Extra & keep them in the Freezer for a Quick Snack. They are Great Tasting on their own even without Syrup.
