Grocery Shopping…

My dh and I went grocery shopping over the weekend.  We are determined to go three months without going to the store.  We will get our milk from the dairy near our house and may go to the specialty store near my work for bananas and apples.  Other than that we are buckling down and doing without.  I made a menu for one month and intend to just cycle through it.  This is my first time buying for this long, so I’m sure I will have to get creative come month three.~Smile

This week’s menu:

Monday:  Tuna Casserole with homemade bread

Tuesday:  Scrambled Eggs with Toast

Wednesday:  Beef Stroganoff

Thursday:  Tamale Pie

Friday:  Chicken Rotel with ww tortilla

Saturday:    Stir-Fry with Brown Rice

Sunday:  Grill

We are going to try to start making our Sundays more of  “a day of rest.”  It’s really tough when you work all week and have a small farm.  We really need both our days to get caught back up.  However, we want this to be “family day.”  A day we spend time together, rest, relax, and preparing for a new week. 

My dh and I helped work Dad’s lambs over the weekend.  Approximately 300 of the little darlings.  We used a sore mouth vaccination which is a live vaccine and not once, not twice, but about a million times did I get it smeared on my face or splattered with it as the little critter shook their heads.  I have eight days before I’m in the clear, so wish me luck.  From what I’ve heard it’s very painful and from the looks of sore mouth on the sheep, I know I don’t want it on my face.  Ugh!  However all of Dad’s and all of our’s are vaccinated, docked, etc.  Now they just have to grow up to be big healthy sheep.

One last thing before I close.  I would like to ask everyone to pray for the people of Greensburg, Kansas.  I had a friend, his wife, and their three year old daughter who lived there.  They lost everything!  Their home, their cars, and all their belongings.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
