River Cottage

          I am L- O- V- I -N- G this show!! If you have not checked out this series you need to do it soon! It is a chef in England who gets tired of living in the city and wants a better life in the country, growing his own food, etc.  This is what Tom and I want to do with our farm! Grow our own veg., fruit, meat, etc. and to share our passion with others to get them excited and involved in maybe not starting their own farm, but supporting local farms/ businesses.

       This show gets you excited about cooking with fresh foods from local farms and knowing where your food is coming from, instead of just buying the packaged foods from the store.

So check out River Cottage and see if you get hooked or not!  I know I am!

Let me know what your favorite part of River Cottage is and any recipes you might like to try!

*** Don't forget to check out all the River Cottage shows too ( Return to River cottage,  River Cottage Spring, River Cottage Winter, River Cottage Summer, River Cottage, Everyday, etc.) *** There are plenty there to watch!

I also wanted to say  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family!

Fall craziness

Hi All!,

      I know I have been neglecting this blog for a while, but things have gotten to be crazy around here. Doing a lot of house projects to get ready to put our house on the market this spring. Outdoor work, cutting wood, chipping, getting the garden beds covered for winter. Also work and just finding time to have family time. 

     I hope you all are doing wonderfully at your homesteads. I will have another recipe for you guys, that I will be testing out this week. It is a sweet bbq sauce that says it taste better then sweet baby rays. We shall see my family really enjoys sweet baby rays but not all the sugar and additives. So this would be a great alternative. 

My menu plan for this week is:

Herb chicken w/ gravy, noodles, vegetable

Pizza (homemade crust), salad

Bbq porkloin , veg., mash pot.

Thanksgiving meal with family

Pancakes, bacon, fruit

Tomato soup, crackers and cheese, cut up veggies

Spaghetti w/italian sausage, whole wheat rolls, veg.

Homemade Lasagna ( homemade noodles), veg. 

I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving!! What is your favorite thing to make for Thanksgiving meals?
