Month: March 2022

Getting Ready for the Hatch

It’s about that time again! We are four weeks out from my chicks coming from Meyer. Since I’m having surgery next Friday, I’m starting this today.

Peanut Butter

We made a boatload of peanut butter this past weekend. It’s really simple, and costs much less than store-bought. We started with five pounds of peanuts from Amazon.

Getting Ready for Spring

It’s March, which means I’m getting antsy for spring. We have a lot of good things awaiting us. But we also have a lot to do.

Trying Blue Apron

So my (hopefully last) surgery on my ankle is in a couple of weeks. The pain is starting to get to me enough that housework is a trial. So I figured I’d try another meal kit service. This time it is Blue Apron.


Since I had goat milk, I figured I’d try goat yogurt. I searched around for a good sous vide recipe. I am weird about leaving it out in a cooler overnight. But a sous vide where I can micromanage the temp, I’m good!

Signs of Spring!

I walked around the yard today because it is absolutely gorgeous out. I checked out our mini-orchard. For reference, we have two each of Honeycrisp, Fuji, and Granny Smith.
