Here are some ways to look fresh this spring without breaking your bank account.
Nashville, Ark. – Spring is here! You may be looking at your current wardrobe to update
it with the latest fashions. While it is a lot of fun to shop for new fashions, it’s
not so fun when the credit card bills start coming in. Here are some ways to look
fresh this spring without breaking your bank account.
Not sure where to start? Ask a friend whose style you like to help you sort through
your closet, or plan a wardrobe swap with friends to share and trade items you rarely
wear. This is a great way to pick up “new” items without spending any money.
Look at your clothes and determine which outfits make you feel good. Take photos of
those outfits and store them for handy reference. Chances are you will see your unique
style in the outfits that make you feel and look good. You might also get a style
app for your phone that records your clothes and tracks your style inspirations. Chances
are you may have a more extensive wardrobe than you thought.
For more information on saving money or developing a household budget, contact the
Howard County Extension Office at 870-845-7517 or visit our office located on the
second floor of the courthouse. You can also check out our website at www.uaex.uada.edu for financial information.
This recipe was prepared at the recent 4-H Dairy Foods contest. Christian
Trombley, a member of the Nature Seekers 4-H Club, placed second in the party foods
category. This pie is perfect for spring dinners or potlucks.
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup key lime juice
1 ½ cups heavy cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker
crumbs, melted butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Press into the bottom and up the
sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until golden; cool completely.
Add sweetened condensed milk to a large bowl. Gradually beat in key lime
juice with an electric mixer until smooth and thickened.
In a separate bowl, beat cream and ¼ cup sugar with an electric mixer
until stiff peaks form. Fold whipped cream in to key lime mixture. Spoon filling into
cooled crust. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until set.
