There's so much to do in this house, I don't ever get it all done! I try though! For the past two days, I've been canning beans. The canner has to be watched closely so the pressure stays at 10 lbs. I have to adjust the temp on the stove quite frequently, so that means I have to be nearby. If I go off in another room, I may forget about the canner and the pressure may go up or down. Either way is not good. I still like canning since I won't have to think about beans for a year or so. It's worth a little babysitting to get that many beans! Plus, home canned beans taste way better than store bought beans! And I bought organic beans at Whole Foods and Publix, which turned out to be the same price as non-organic beans at Walmart! I hope I inspire ya'll to can some beans! They are not hard at all; just plan your time and they are done in no time at all!
I have some photos of the does. I hope they are expecting! They look like it, but they have been consuming a lot more hay since the boys have been with them. I guess since the boys eat a lot of hay, the girls feel they have to as well. They seem to compete when it comes to food. Unless ya'll can help me, we won't know for sure if they are preggos for another month. By then they should be protruding quite well.
I've been keeping the bread machine going this week. I made our daily bread and some cinnamon bread. The cinnamon bread isn't sweet except for the raisins, so that's a plus. Of course, Skylar won't eat it since it's not very sweet. But he doesn't eat my homemade bread anyway. Or my homemade pizza cause he doesn't like the crust. I know, typical spoiled teenager! But I love him!
I have a pack of ground deer in the freezer I'm cooking tonight. I think I'll make spaghetti or some casserole. I know I should menu plan but I really don't enjoy all that planning! I think about what I want and see if we have the ingredients. I keep the pantry and freezer with things I know we'll eat so it's really not a problem to cook this way. Do you menu plan? I shop the sales each week and that plays a big role in our menu. If I find something worth buying on sale. The sales are not really sales anymore. Except at Aldi. I usually buy several things there each week before going to the other stores.
The first day of Spring is tomorrow! As many of you have, we have experienced a very long, cold winter! It will be so welcome to see sunny, warmer days! The sun hasn't shined here this week, except for a few minutes this morning! I don't like that! I don't think I would make it up North with all that cold and snow! Maybe by the weekend it will be sunny and warmer! I hope so for you as well! Have a great week! I hope you enjoyed this post! Blessings from Bama!
