chilly mornings require being wrapped in blankets

butternut squash

so many leaves!




always together
We've had some very chilly mornings in these parts lately.  Our second light frost happened last night.  Our remaining veggies are still hanging on.  It's the beautiful changing of seasons.

I adore all things Fall.  The colors, the scents, the clothing, the food - love it all.

Speaking of Fall, our home is filled with a yummy apple goodness.  I am using up the rest of the apples we purchased last weekend.  I have applesauce cooking in the crockpot, and I made pie crust this morning to throw together an Apple Galette later today.  I also have Sausage-Tortellini Soup simmering on the stove for lunch.

Today is also chock full of making products.  I'm filling an order for 100 jars/bottles of body butter and lotion as well as soap orders.  Also on a business note - those of you who are local can find us at the Sunday Saratoga Farmer's Market starting next month and going throughout winter.  We're excited to give this market a try with our products.

I've given up on our logo development.  At least for now.  We tried helping someone out who is local and trying to start his own business.  We began talking with him in June about creating a logo for us that we could use interchangeably with our farm products and our skincare/bath line.  The preliminary drawings we finally saw in July looked great.  And that's where it has halted. We've seen and heard nothing since.  We're moving on.

The Coop Girls have halted egg production for the most part.  They are molting and the weather is changing so they're taking a break.  We're lucky to see 3-4 eggs per day right now.  It actually works out well since we won't be selling eggs, except to a few customers, throughout winter.

The garden is also almost completely halted for the year.  The eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini and broccoli are still hanging on and providing us veggies for the week.  I'm guessing this may be the last week for harvesting any of them.  It's always sad when the growing season ends.  But it's also a sign that it's time to start planning the next growing season!!

On the menu this week {a week of comfort foods!}:  Crockpot Pub-inspired Beef Short Ribs with Rice and Corn; Roasted Herb Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy and Roasted Carrots; Spaghetti and Meatballs with Salad; Ham with Scalloped Potatoes and Broccoli; Chicken with Creamy Mushroom Sauce over Pasta with Broccoli; Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Baked Mac and Cheese and Salad.

Hoping you're 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...
