  1. Where did Jan go? stockpiling & thinking ahead for our garden!

    by , 02-16-2009 at 10:24 AM
    Wow! I cannot believe that we are already into the 3rd week of February.
    I remember hearing my parents talk about wondering where time went, but holy cow!
    We're almost all the way finished with the 2nd month of the year.

    I hope everyone's year is starting out right.
    Everyone is focusing on family.
    Whether that means paying off debt, stockpiling to make sure the family needs are met, or just cooking at home more.

  2. More work being done on the book!

    by , 02-16-2009 at 08:09 AM
    So after taking some much-needed time off, I decided to dive right back in and get the meat of the work done on the book.

    Last night was fantastic! I got at least two chapters fully edited, which means I have six more to go. I finished the editing on Chapters One and Two, then did a re-write of some of Three and Four. Three was a big mess and somehow, I had two different sections on the same subject matter in two different spots! The largest chunk I had to move around was at least ...

  4. A week on the ranch (February 09 - February 15)

    by , 02-16-2009 at 12:12 AM
    Another week of sickness. At least I found out what is wrong with me: mycoplasma pneumonia (walking pneumonia) and a virus that is causing an inner ear imbalance. I am on a bunch of meds and just waiting it out.

    SNOW!!! We had snow this week!! It is not common where I live, as I'm at about 1500 elevation, which is below the snowline. So it was fun to wake up to a white landscape, and a gentle snow still falling most of the morning. By afternoon, the sun was out, and the snow ...

  5. Spaghetti sauce with meat

    by , 02-15-2009 at 10:59 PM
    Tonight, I threw together a batch of spaghetti sauce.

    I browned 2 lbs of ground beef in a skillet, then added chopped onions (1 lg), 3 celery stalks, half of a large green bell pepper, and about a pound of fresh mushrooms. I cooked it until the beef was browned, then drained the whole batch and dumped it in a cast iron dutch oven. Stuck it in the oven at 400F. Added one can of tomato paste, 1 lg and 1 sm can of tomato sauce, 1 15 oz can of petite diced tomatoes, and 1/2 cup of brown ...
