Simple Homestead blog hop #237

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

I look forward to Thursdays when we get together for another linky party! I hope you had a wonderful week last week, with lots of good food and hopefully some visitors as well.

I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas that have been shared this week.

Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). The hop begins at 12:01 am on Thursday morning and runs through Sunday evening.

This Week

Our family's Thanksgiving guests this year included a young man from Europe. It was fun introducing him to "new flavors," he called them, as he pointed at "this and this and this..."  He wasn't sure about the stuffing, but he really liked the candied sweet potatoes. Who wouldn't?

He also asked why we eat turkey at Thanksgiving. To me, the question is "why do we only eat turkey at Thanksgiving?" and ignore it the rest of the year. Yumm, I love turkey! Pass me the dark meat, please.

The turkey carcass is in the freezer and I hope to make turkey broth and pressure-can it this weekend. We might not eat turkey all year, but I use turkey broth instead of chicken broth all year round.

Leah Lynch, one of our blog hop cohosts, launched her ebook this week, The Profitable Rabbitry. Let's face it, the difference between a hobby and a business is the direction the money flows: a hobby takes money, while a business is a source of income.

Leah's book and worksheets teach you how to treat your hobby like a business and will redefine how you manage your rabbitry. If you're tired of worrying about the feed bill, this will help! You'll find more information about The Profitable Rabbitry Ebook here.
