Ferment, Pickle, Dry - a book review

Do you ever feel like your meal planning is in a rut? It's the same old thing over and over again and you'd like to shake things up a bit, but you don't know where to start.

Ferment, Pickle, Dry - Ancient Methods, Modern Meals, a book review

I've been there too. Lately hubby and I look at each other in the afternoon and ask "what sounds good for dinner?" and "I don't know, what sounds good to you?" This usually leads to a round of "I asked you first." We're just not inspired.

A Slice of My Life

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, 
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends 
all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


My hope is to inspire you, and to encourage your homesteading plans and your dreams of a simple, self-reliant, God-dependent life. You can follow me at:

How to Turn Free Pumpkins into Pumpkin Puree

Have you noticed that pumpkins are expensive during October and suddenly worthless on November first?

How to make nearly-free pumpkin puree

I won't pay that ridiculous price in October, but as soon as the calendar changes to November I can pick them up very cheaply and sometimes even for free. I don't turn them into Jack-O-Lanterns; I turn them into pumpkin puree and chicken feed.

Silver Sunday and Being Thankful

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- a weekend away with hubby
- a friend who did my chores
- morning fog in a valley
- a pink and cream sunrise
- finding a surprise melon
Silver Sunday

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; 
knock and the door will be opened to you. 
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; 
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Matthew 7:7,8 NIV
