HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! I’m grateful for you!!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Growing up, Thanksgiving was one of my most favorite days of the year. I can still smell the smells of fresh rolls coming out of the oven, my Mom stirring gravy on the stove, and my absolute favorite: chocolate pecan pie. YUM. I would pay a lot of money for a chocolate fudge pecan pie right about now, but I’ll be having a homemade organic cheesecake for dessert tonight, so I can’t complain too much! I just thought you might like the recipe for the cheesecake too so you can make it for your next birthday, holiday, or just…

Do you need some whipped cream today? I did…

Best thing ever happened to me. Had a LONG difficult day which included about 5 hours of running errands with children, cleaning, household administrative tasks and much more. Got to my raw milk pickup in late afternoon and was so weary, drained and just ready to fall over. Then my amazing farmer, Brad, just made my entire week!!! He pulled out a jar of this incredible cultured cream his incredible wife Jane made, (she cultures organic raw cream with yogurt cultures and it is the best thing you have ever tasted) and then topped it with WHIPPED cream (see picture)…

Ok so this is kind of hilarious but….it worked for me the other night….I read online that if you put a few drops of essential oils like eucalyptus or lavender or peppermint in the toilet before, um…ya know, doing your business, it would trap the smell before it could even become an issue. SO, I tried it with my boys, who…both went poop back to back in the same toilet. (there are no words) We literally could not smell a THING! OMG! The kids were besides themselves with ecstatic glee. My 8 year old danced around saying how much he…

Just to brighten your day….

Ok. Maybe only fellow Moms will understand this, but……I saw this on my friend’s Facebook page the other night thought it was so funny that I laughed out loud to myself then showed it to my husband and it is just so….TRUE! If this is your house too (please God don’t let it just be my kids) Then leave a comment and say YES and AMEN! 🙂 Just hope this makes you feel better and brighter today. Lots of love! Catherine
