Organic Foods, or Genetically Modified Foods?

Tasty Kitchen, The Pioneer Woman

I just wanted to share one of my favorite cooking blogs.
Who doesn't love "The Pioneer Woman"?
I won't take offense that Ree has publicly claimed the name Pioneer Woman.....
but Kevin has called me that for years! Do you think that means Ree and I are long lost sisters?!

Grandma's Little Cook

"The Old Pantry"

It stood next to the kitchen door,
Only a door between;
It held many goodies
About which children dream:

Sweet jellies, red and purple,
(Wild strawberry and grape);
Fresh pies and home made cookies
And tasty chocolate cake.

It stood next to the kitchen,
With just a door between,
The old pantry at Grandma's
Where goodies reigned supreme."

Faith vs. Fear

Therefore I tell you , do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, your body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or stow away in barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:25-27

Dreams vs. Reality

This may be what I dreaming of, sitting in mt cozy rocker with my cup a coffee.....

Here's the reality outside my window!!!

Snowy Friends

I'm trying to keep my little feathered friends fed with seed, suet cakes, and leftover fruit from our meals. I'm sure with the weather out there, they are appreciating my efforts!Posted by Picasa

Snow Much Fun!!!

All the grandkids playing on the "snow-topped" mountain by Grandma and Grandpa's front door! Hey at least could stand just inside the door to watch them!! Oh what FUN!

The Weather Outside is Frightful....

(this is a beautiful picture of the untouched snow at the end of our house)

.....But the fire is so delightful! In the daycare today, we are having pajama day...YEA!!!!! We are all in our PJ's, reading books, snuggled on piles of blankets and pillows.
The weather is supposed to turn wicked later in the day. We still have drifts of snow waist deep from the last several snows, with a predicted 4-6 inches more due to come in this afternoon. If that weren't bad enough, the wind will be howling and wind chill temps 30-40* BELOW zero! BRrrrr...........

My plan of attack for the next few days, hunker down, snuggle up and stay inside!

Cold Start to the New Year!

Well, the new year promises fresh new beginnings....and cold temps!!! This morning I got up to a bone chilling 2* F. The weekend won't be much warmer. It'll be a good few days to peruse my mountain of seed catalogs that have arrived.
