LOOK what we got this week!
Plant something – not yet… this weekend if it doesn’t snow though!
Harvest something – eggs! Even old Mayzie girl laid eggs and she’s four this year! We’re so happy to be back in eggs from out own girls.
Preserve something – two quiches and a bag of soup went into the freezer – I’m trying to get some meals frozen for when the baby comes.
Waste Not – compost and recycling, scraps to chickens, etc. And I’m seven weeks straight on planning meals!
Want Not – We scored some twin beds for the boys from craigslist. They are a really nice set that can be bunked or not. We’ve already set up Henry’s and he LOVES it. We’ll be saving his other bed for the new baby when they are older.
Build Community Food Systems – shared some frozen green chiles and grape jam with my sis & bro-in-law.
Eat the Food – Duck was on the menu this week. I usually have a harder time using our game birds than the elk or venison, but I am making a point to do it. And I LOVE duck! Served up two zucchini-green chile quiches using veggies from the freezer at brunch.
This is my favorite duck recipe: Doug’s Grilled Duck Breasts from Field and Stream Magazine. So yum!
