A few nights ago my Father in Law called and was talking to my husband, and I could tell immediately by Rob’s responses in the conversation that something was up with one of our horses. I have a sixth sense for things like that and I wasn’t wrong this time.
So I think I am doing quite well at cutting back on my carbs/sugar/white flour intake these past couple of weeks of the new year, but I’m not a robot, and I just can’t turn it off – the want…..no, the need, for good bread, is in my blood.
Did you know that there was such a thing? Only 3 ingredients for a cookie? And not from a pre-mixed bag from the store? I didn’t. Apparently I live under a rock. I do live in Arlington, which is a very small town, but still, I’m obviously not ‘in the know’.
Our chickens at Scarlett Homestead are the funniest little birds you ever did see. Rob and Judah drive up in the ‘old truck’ every day and as soon as they hear that engine coming up the hill and around the bend they start squawking and flapping their wings because they KNOW that their favorite people are on the way. With snacks most likely.
I used to absolutely hate mushrooms. I would pick the tiniest piece of one out of whatever it was in, with utter disdain. Then one day I liked them. I don’t remember what I ate, or who made them, but out of the blue, I decided to like them. I’m so glad I did.
Tomato soup of any kind is such a comfort food. It makes me think of childhood, and grilled cheese sandwiches. It’s simple, rich and full of flavor, and just makes you feel warm and fuzzy on a cold winter’s night.
One of my favorite blogger friends, Jenn from Sunshine Farm tagged me in her latest post about goals from 2018 – goals that were met and some that were not. Reflecting on these goals and what is ahead for the next year. I like it! Challenge accepted!
Happy New Year! I hope each one of you had a wonderful holiday. Whichever holiday it is you celebrate, I hope it was filled with family, friends, good food and fun!
We have 3 healthy, thriving beehives at Scarlett Homestead at the moment and we hope that this coming spring or summer we can increase the amount of hives we have. The more the merrier.
