Chickens and Firelight

Posted by mrssmythe on March 27, 2017 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

More snow. More chickens. Well, technically not a lot more snow, but it did snow here this week,(very briefly) and the stuff that was already on the ground looks to be in no hurry to leave. We did have some nice, sunny days, though, which prompted more sessions in a lawn chair against the barn, soaking […]

More Snow…and Sledding with a Chicken

Posted by mrssmythe on March 20, 2017 in Chickens, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

Snow and More Snow…along with some baking

Posted by mrssmythe on February 13, 2017 in Baking, Chickens, Cooking, Critters, Seasons, Week in Review |

After last week’s chicken trauma, Ginger declared herself a vegetarian. So – off I went to the library to find some inspiration. I came home with The New Moosewood Cookbook and promptly made a batch of Gypsy Soup (You can find the recipe HERE) Think sweet potatoes, chick peas, and lots of spices. Absolutely delicious! Though, in truth, […]
