Proof that I DID accomplish something today . . . some of the stuffed green peppers I made chillin' out in the freezer until firm enough to package.
Ever have one of those days when you keep moving all day but it seems you don't have much to show for it? 'Course you have. We all have.
I made a double batch of stuffed green peppers which will be tasty (I can hope), quick, easy dinners this winter. But by the time you cut and clean the peppers, blanch them, cook the rice, brown the ground beef with the cut up onions and garlic, and gather all the seasonings to throw in, then do the actual stuffing of the peppers . . . that all takes a chunk of time.
So, okay. I can feel like I had a productive day. And I will, just as soon as I get my ironing done. (Geesh, I'm such a slave driver!)
I live with my husband on a small homestead in Northeastern Minnesota. Our daughter (Beyond the Fork in the Road) lives in the same county but an hour's drive away.
Our place is located outside a small tourist town and a two and a half hour's drive from the nearest big city. Trips to the city are infrequent, well-planned, and exhausting!
We currently raise chickens, geese, and ducks and have hives of honey bees. Raising some of our meat and most of our fruits and vegetables is a priority for us; so, along with our birds for meat and eggs, we have fruit trees, berry patches and a huge vegetable garden.
Quilting is my passion, and I'm working toward developing a sustainable (online) market for my one-of-a-kind baby quilts. I could happily spend each day in my quilt studio if I weren't happily spending each day out in the garden. Good thing we have winters up here; Mother Nature helps keep my life balanced.
