Winter Knitting

I haven’t done a ton of knitting since Christmas due to laying the floor in the addition at the farm, but I’m hoping to start being more productive. I have a couple projects on the needles and I’m planning a couple more. My first chore is to darn most of my socks. The unfinished floors at […]

Clean Eating: Poultry Broth

A few weeks ago mom and I were shopping and we needed chicken broth–we had used all of our frozen broth for Thanksgiving. I started reading labels and was amazed at what I was reading. So today we’re talking about clean eating: poultry broth. I mostly shop at Kroger and these are the ingredients in […]

Timeless Coffee El Salvador Las Animas

This month I’m reviewing Timeless Coffee El Salvador Las Animas. This coffee was really enjoyable and I actually carried it back and forth from my house to the farm most of the month.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I spent a lot of my childhood at the farm when it was my grandparents’ home. That includes lots of Halloween fun! We still get pumpkins for fall decorating, but when I was little I’d carve Jack O Lanterns with my cousins. These pictures were taken in the farm kitchen (that was torn off and […]
