We were enjoying a mild winter here in the Midwest. . . until this week, as we fell into an extended deep freeze that made me really thankful for roaring fires, cozy sweaters and super fuzzy socks. Unfortunately, our chicken friends have none of these same luxuries, but we did bundle them up a bit to face the bitter cold.
Milk-Free, Fizzy Water Pancakes
It has a busy season (as usual) at the Three-Acre Wood and I’m quickly becoming thankful for the slower pace of this year’s Thanksgiving festivities. Since we didn’t travel, it gave us a few extra days to get Christmas in order and roll into the holiday season without being completely behind. Oh, I’m still behind; just not completely. On top of everything else, my husband found himself on a temporary restricted diet, so I got a little creative with meal prep and discovered a few new delicious recipes. Although hubby is back to eating normal, our family decided to keep one of our new dishes in the regular breakfast lineup…
Putting Our Plentiful Garden to Bed
As thanksgiving approaches and the promise of colder days loom, our Midwest garden has finally been put to bed for the winter. Fortunately for us, our tomatoes were overachievers this year and we are still feasting on their fruits. Every time I found a nice-sized red tomato this fall, I thought, "This is the last of them," but I was proven wrong time and again.
