Snowy Day

January 07, 2011


5 - 9 inches of snow is predicted for today into tomorrow.

We have about 3 inches right now.

This morning I had chicken duty.  I was prepared for a lot of complaining.


Somehow, the snowy morning seemed to go over ok.

For the most part they stayed to the side of the outdoor coop without snow.

Except for Renee.  She was bound and determined to have morning as usual.

She wasn't too fond of the snow on her feet and took turns holding each up, but she dealt with it pretty good.

I went into work for a couple of hours.  When I came home there was more snow in the outdoor coop and no chickens in sight.


Where could they all be???


I opened the door to the indoor coop and there they were.

Complaining to Mother Nature.

Lucy Lou was trying to get a rally going.  For a moment I thought the chicken band was going to start up.

Thankfully it didn't.

They love to peck at the snow, but don't want it anywhere near their feet.

Guess who does love the snow on their feet ....


Emerson and Oliver.

Emerson especially.  He bounds thru the snow like a bunny hopping straight up in the air.

They love running and wrestling in it.

I tell Emerson Mother Nature made it snow just for him.

He loves it but hates to come in.

Also hates to waste time going to the bathroom.

We have constant reminders about our "duty".

Once we come in they lay on their big boy bed in front of the pellet stove to dry.

Today, once dry, Emerson decided he needed to kick back and take a nap.

He decided "dad's couch" is the best spot for that.


A guy's exhausted after all that playing!

DELICIOUS Chicken Marinade For Juicy Chicken Every Time

April 17, 2018


Chicken breasts can be bland and dry if you aren't using a flavorful marinade or sauce.  That is what we experienced, until we began using this SUPER simple marinade.  I use this whenever I want the chicken to have just a bit more flavor or if it's going to be standing on it's own.  I use it on chicken when I make grilled chicken, grilled chicken subs, Quick & Easy Chicken Parm, chicken for...
