Summer Cooking and A Giveaway!!

Wow!  I can't believe that I have 1000+ people who want to follow me on Facebook!  Can you?

I can't believe that I have had over 50,000 lifetime pageviews of my ramblings on the blog.  Can you?

This summer, it seems that I have slacked a little on my blog telling you about our happenings, but if you follow on Facebook I have been doing pretty good.

It has been miserably hot and dry here until the last few days.  I really haven't been doing a lot of cooking.  You see, The Farmer doesn't like me to "Heat Up the house by cooking."  I try to cook a lot of things at once or when it is cooler and stock the freezer.  Here are some of the recipes that have been my go to foods this summer...

Leave me a comment for what kind of recipes you would like to see in the future or what you would like to know about how your food is grown.  If I don't grow it, I will try to find someone who does.  If I get 25 comments, I will add another cookbook or jewelry item to the giveaway just for those who commented.  

My friend from Cowgirl Prairie Creations has kindly donated a piece of her jewelry to help celebrate.  Go like her on Facebook to be entered to win.  Hopefully I won't mess up using this cool Rafflecopter gadget to pick the winners.

a Rafflecopter giveaway Good Luck!

Thanks for following along and learning how we raise the food that we all eat and enjoy!!
