Menu Week of November 17

chickenfry

Last week I mentioned that we’ve not been as diligent with our budget as we need to be. One of the places that we’ve let slide is dining out. A few years ago (around the time I started this blog) our budget was super tight and eating out was not something that fit into the […]

Black Beans

Sunday afternoon I had a little time to myself. Joe and Christopher went in to town to do a couple of errands and pick up Lulu from a friend’s. Kiki was at work. It is quite rare for me to have the entire house to myself. I took advantage of it by watching a show […]

Menu Plan Week of October 27

Design a Dish Muffins

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

Caliente

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 […]

October 4 2013

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 […]

Menu Plan Week of August 18 & Challenge Update

Last week I didn’t really put a menu plan together. Not putting a menu plan together actually worked pretty well. BUT not well enough that I’m comfortable winging it this also! So I’m putting together a loose menu plan for main dishes. We should have a few things ripen in the garden this week to […]

Menu Plan Week of July 28 & a Challenge for August

I’m very happy to be back home in Wyoming!

Little Boy and I were gone for just under two weeks. The first week we went to Oregon for my work. I’m happy to say that the work went well. On Friday of that week my oldest girl and my youngest girl both joined us at […]

Menu Plan Week of June 23

Making bread

This week promises to be busy and exciting. We are adding some new members to our little place. I’ll share more about that when they arrive. We have also had a secret ‘project’ of sorts that we’ve been pursuing which should finish up this week. And we’ll have the usual summer busy items including getting […]

Sprouted Lentils

I have a confession to make. I have been avoiding going to the grocery store. For several weeks now I’ve only stopped by the market when absolutely necessary and only to pick up things that I think we can’t live without. Usually that is fresh produce but even that has been sparser than it probably […]

Menu Plan Week of June 9

Sprouted Lentils

I hope you are having a terrific Monday! We had a great and very productive weekend. We finished putting in the garden, planted a few small trees, and put some grass seed in a bare spot. Now that the garden is in our focus will be on fixing more of the bare spots in our […]

I have a confession, I didn’t follow last week’s menu plan at all. Not that it was much of a plan to start! I never did put those new beans on to soak so […]

Black Beans: Cooking and Favorite Meals

Black Beans

You may know that I have a slight obsession with beans. Beans are a wonderfully frugal whole food, they have an excellent nutritional profile, and are extremely versatile. There are hundreds of varieties of beans/legumes available which really helps keep things interesting. Beans also make an excellent addition to your food storage.

For ease of […]

Late March Snow Ducks

Snow Ducks!

I love spring in Wyoming! We are finally getting some precipitation which is wonderful. I am very much looking forward to green grass soon. Of course, the precipitation is in the form of snow. On Tuesday we had around a foot in the yard. However with the wind we did have a […]

Menu Plan Week of April 7

Black Beans

My little boy shared his cold with me. Joe took over all of the cooking duties over the weekend while I took it easy. I’m still feeling pretty blah. I’ve made a very basic menu plan for the week. You’ll notice there are no veggies in the plan. I was sick on my usual town […]

Menu Plan Week of March 31- homespunoasis.com

Spring in Wyoming. Saturday was a perfect example of a spring like day for here. We woke up to rain. A little bit later that rain become a sleet/hail type thing. Then we had big fat snowflakes. That kept up until around noon time. Once it stopped it suddenly warmed up and everything melted rather […]
