Thanks for joining me on this adventure! I am excited to get started, and well…where do I start?! LOL
So many things to post about and so little planned/organized. Story of my life!
I guess I’ll just start with elaborating on me and my life.
Growing up on a cattle/grain farm and then marrying a farmer means I have 40+ years of life on the farm. And boy, going from a farm kid to a farm wife was a heck of a learning curve. I thought I knew what I was getting into….bahahahahaha…
Raising kids and being a functioning member of the team, plus working off the farm is a whole other ball game than simply getting to be a kid that was lucky enough to have ponies and fresh batches of kittens every summer. I actually had to cook and clean…not only for myself but for a slew of muddy kids and a farmer that are in and out of the house on a very frequent basis. I cook for up to 15 people depending on the season and am the parts runner/field runner/gopher/hired man when the need arises.
Sigh, I’m tired just thinking of it all!
That said, in that learning curve I’ve discovered a few tricks and tips of the trade. I am by no means a housekeeping wizard or a gourmet chef, but I’ve managed to keep the wheels on the bus this far!
I’ve also been described as “so extra” by my 13 year old; I think that has something to do with the fact that I love sequins, fringe, rhinestones and leopard…so brace yourself…you never know what I’ll come up with next!
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t fess up to the main reason for relaunching this site…my e-cookbook.
I got tired of making the same darn recipes over and over for the hundreds of pounds of hamburger I always have in the freezers…so I got creative and came up a cookbook featuring JUST ground beef! I know….amazing…lol It’s almost available for purchase…see the above tab (The Tasty Cow) if you are interested in more details!!
That’s it for now…talk to you soon!
