Planning for a Smokehouse

One of the things we love about Wyoming is the hunting opportunities. This year our big game hunting was very successful with Joe filling all of his tags; […]

We’re celebrating! With the longer days the chickens and ducks have started laying again. We’re getting between 10 and 12 eggs a day which means I’ll be planning meals using eggs. After this long winter of almost no eggs, we’re pretty excited.

Garbanzo Beans and Sprouted Wheat

Looking for a new garbanzo bean recipe, I found a very promising one titled simply Garbanzo Beans and Bulgur. My only problem with the recipe was my lack of bulgur in the house. But I do have wheat that I thought might substitute well if I sprouted it. Boy did it! This recipe was […]
