Menu Plan Week of October 27

Cold and blustery today. We’re supposed to get one to two inches of snow. The weekend was so warm that we didn’t even need jackets. Interesting weather, for sure!

We have a three day weekend scheduled starting this Friday. We’re planning to go up to the new property providing snow doesn’t prevent the trip. We […]

Menu Plan Week of October 21

Last week I was feeling under the weather and didn’t get a menu plan put together. In fact, I was feeling so bad that Joe and the girls took over kitchen duties for a few days. They were happy we had a few quick to prepare foods on hand.

After I started feeling better we […]

Baked Custard

You may know that for several years I took a hiatus of sorts from cooking. For four or five years most of what we ate was dine out, take out or frozen. On occasion I’d cook something from ‘scratch’ but that was pretty rare. I was too busy pursuing my ‘career’ to take time to […]

Winter Garden and Snow Pictures

Just a few pictures of the first blizzard of 2013. This was one of the biggest we’ve had since we moved here. School was cancelled and even my husband was told not to go in due to the hazardous driving conditions. Here is a picture that I took early in the morning while the snow […]

Harvest Your Health

You probably know that digital bundles are all the rage. These bundles consist of a collection of eBooks (and possibly videos and audio) with a particular theme all bundled together at a reduced price when compared to purchasing at retail. Primal Toad put together a wildly successful bundle sale at the beginning of this year. […]

Menu Plan Week of October 6

We had a big blizzard on Friday. The picture above was the view out our front door on Friday morning. We did have a lot of snow but no damage. We lost a chick this morning. It hadn’t developed enough feathers yet (it was about 8 weeks old) and couldn’t handle the cold. The […]

Working From Home: My Experience

I get a quite a few emails from people wondering how I started working from home. In fact, this is probably the question I get second most often (the question ask I’m asked most often is how do you eat so many beans?). I decided it was time to post about working from home.

Stewed Duck, Chinese Style

We raise ducks for eggs.

About every other year we get a new batch of ducklings either from a friend who incubates or from incubating them ourselves (with our neighbor’s little incubator). The trouble with these new ducks is they won’t all be females and obviously only the females lay eggs. So we end up […]

Tour Our “New” Kitchen!

Over this last year we’ve been working on re-doing our little kitchen. When we bought this house ( a used double wide that we got for cheap) it was all rather dated looking. The walls were almost all done in lovely brown paneling and the entire house (except for a square in front of each […]
