Weeks 38-39-40-41

Harvest 2018 *photo courtesy of Ashley Wallace   I’m back in the saddle after, what seems like a very short, month off from my last blog.  I think it best if I go week by week otherwise I will find myself rambling and…

Week 36 & 37 – The “Farmacy Dinner Series”

The ‘two weeks in one blog’ trend continues, and might for the next month or so. I have launched a new “Farmacy Dinner Series” and that will take all of my time and then some to pull off. My goal for the project is to: A) Cook a…

Week 34 & 35 – Don’t Rain On My Catering Motorcade

Above Photo: The “Rolling Prairie” has arrived. It was Christmas in September! More on this story below. Well, it finally happened folks…I missed the deadline last week and Week 34 never made it to your inbox. I can assure you that Week 34 did happen, I just was so…
