We have had a beautiful snow and it helps make this season bright!! We finished all of the butchering and the bacon has been smoked and packaged in the freezer. Yum! It turned out really good. It’s been fun cooking with a whole variety of meats. As you can imagine, there have been a whole lot of potatoes served as well.
Fred’s red neck smoker unit. Don’t laugh; it works great! He likes to make things out of just about anything laying around the farm.
My girls are busy making our Christmas treats and the house has smelled simply terrific! I’m bound and determined not to test anything until Christmas Eve and day.
The girls and I took a four hour road trip down to Nebraska last week. We were blessed to see Clayton’s fiancé, Angelica, perform at her Senior recital at Wayne College. What a fun trip and it was really an awesome performance. Can’t wait for the wedding in May!
Talk about farm fresh! Tomorrow we are going to shuck some of the popcorn below and turn it into popcorn balls to be enjoyed on Christmas Day. It’s nice and dry on the front porch and has served us well as a healthy, organic treat.
Silvana is home again for a while at least! We had such a fun time out in Wyoming in spite of the snowy weather. She gave us a tour of the ranch and we were amazed at how lovely it was. There were Elk everywhere. It was a rare occasion….Fred came with us and I think he actually enjoyed himself. There is no place he’d rather be than at home on his farm.
Life is good!
