Menu Week of June 8

The last few weeks have been pretty busy and I’ve neglected sharing our menu plans. I’m still putting together a plan, scratched out on a slip of recycled paper or an old envelope. We’re being somewhat careful with our money right now since we’re building a cabin on our new property so the bulk of […]

Two Ducks Equal Numerous Delicious Dishes

At Thanksgiving time we got our turkey from my friend JLB and as a bonus she threw in two meat ducks. We love duck. We usually have wild duck which is different from domestic duck but we have discovered that both are equally delicious. We cut up the ducks and froze the pieces separately. […]

My Version of Broth

I thought I would share with you how I make broth. If you are a broth/stock purist you will not want to read this post. If you are a busy slightly scatter brained person (like me) working with a tight food budget (also like me) then this might interest you. I make about a […]
