Simple Homestead blog hop #138

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! Every week we get together for another hop, and I'm always glad to see you. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

Explore the great ideas that have been shared. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts with us if you're a blogger. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

This week

January is National Soup Month, and I think it's very appropriate. What's better than hot soup on a cold winter's day? For the past several years I've shared recipes for soup during January; this year I'm featuring my favorites from previous years. This week's soup is Broccoli and Cheddar Soup, which is my meat-and-potatoes husband's absolute favorite soup ever.

A few weeks ago we took our Cornish cross meat chickens to the processor. In my opinion the best part about raising these chickens is that my time investment is minimal, just 8-10 weeks. Here's what you need to know if you want to raise meat chickens.
