Despite us having one day this past week of true bliss where you could swear Spring was about to arrive, we received the harsh reminder that winter is still here.  A snowstorm was on the way the next day.  We were fortunate to have escaped most of it.  Initially we were expected to get 5-10 inches of snow, then it changed to 10-18 inches and in reality we received a couple of inches of snow and ice.  Usually when we receive ice we lose power but this time, thankfully, we did not and we were sooooooo grateful.

Regardless of the cold weather, egg production is getting back to full swing thanks to the sun.  It's so nice to have that wonderful brightness all day and into early evening.  It certainly lifts the spirits of people AND chickens.

J managed breakfast duty this weekend.  He's really getting it down well.  I told him that should be his meal.  He could be a breakfast chef.  Unfortunately, he wasn't convinced.

Speaking of J, I've written before that my husband and I do everything together and have a very good relationship, however, I have just asked him to please stop sharing everything.  Namely, his germs.  I was sick about a month ago because he shared his yucky germs and here I am again, sick, at the tail end of his sick week.  If only I could pick and choose which symptoms I get/don't get -  I could do without the jabbing headache that comes with it.  Fingers crossed this will pass.  Soon.

So, because I haven't felt good since Wednesday, it was a pretty low-key weekend.  So much for the weekend to-do list.

In business news, my very talented sister-in-law brought us 2 boxes of handmade washcloths and soap savers to put in the Etsy store.  They compliment our products so well and are beautiful!

Hoping you are having a wonderful weekend!

Slow-Cooker "Baked" Potatoes

February 22, 2018


My husband is not a baked potato fan. He's made that very clear. Several times..... He is, however, a huge fan of twice baked potatoes. So I've found the perfect compromise since I do appreciate a good baked potato. I scoop out his potato and mix it with a little butter, milk, and cheese (as I would for a twice baked potato), but I don't bake it a second time. Instead, I spoon it back into the...

Freezer Cooking 101: A Beginner's Guide Part 1 of 3

February 21, 2018


This is the first of a 3-part series on Freezer Cooking.  I got hooked on freezer cooking a couple of years ago.  While we don't eat the majority of our meals as freezer meals, I love counting on them at least once or twice a week as well as having a meal or two extra that's handy if I've forgotten to take something out.  

Finding ways to simplify mealtime has become incredibly popular, and for...

$100.00/Week Real Food Meal Plan - Week 8

February 19, 2018


If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Food lifestyle.  Our grocery budget is $100.00/week for 2 adults.  Often I make 2 different meals because I am primarily plant-based and my husband is not.  Most of what we eat is made from scratch and any boxed, canned and/or frozen products follow the Real Food...
