I just gotta say that feeding my family a meal that we raised/grew is very satisfying. All the work, time and effort all summer long pays off. When I can go to my freezer or cabinet and pull some healthy, nutritional food out and fix it for my family...that is a very nice feeling. For supper last night we had a ham, green beans and milk all from home. The potatoes were locally grown. The pie was made from local berries and made in my kitchen. Our breakfast this morning I call "Hash" was home raised bacon, sausage, eggs, and milk. Along with local potatoes. We didn't grow any potatoes due to no room in the garden, but I would like to next year! We'll see how the space goes!
May seem like boasting, and maybe I am a little, but in a humble sort of way. Once you stop and think about where our food comes from, and how it's grown or raised and how most go to the store to get everything...I like to stick it to the big guys and do it myself! I find that very satisfying indeed!
Have a great day all!
