A Little Bit Chilly

December 16, 2010


It seems to be a bit cold all throughout the U.S. and the state of New York is no different.

We haven't had an enormous amount of snow.....yet.

It's been quite cold this week though.

Oliver and Emerson absolutely love the snow. 

They love to eat it and wrestle in it.

Cait loves the cold temperatures so she can sit in front of the pellet stove.

Jay had chicken duty yesterday morning and decided it was too cold so he would keep the girls in the coop for the day with their heater running.

They didn't like his style of decision-making. 

They aren't fond of a dictatorship.

This morning I had chicken duty. 

They went outside while I was cleaning inside and when I peeked out at them I saw a funny sight.

They were all sprawled out like it was summer.

I think they were trying desperately to make me understand they wanted their options kept open.

I left the outdoor door open for them.

They've been outside all day.

I now have happy chickens.

I'm sure tomorrow they will find something else they'd like.  Probably scrambled eggs or warm oatmeal with milk or yogurt.

I'm sure Lucy Lou will lead that rally.

For now I'll enjoy their happiness.  And the cold.

12 Tips For Eating Real Food On A REAL Budget

February 15, 2018



1. Maximize Less Expensive Foods
Part of this tip is getting into the habit of eating in season because in season veggies are typically much cheaper than out of season. The other thing to consider is thinking about ingredients you and your family enjoy that are (either seasonally or year-round) cheaper and incorporating them more into your meals. For instance, carrots are a pretty inexpensive...
