Farmyard Supper

I don't often give it a second thought, but this weekend while staring down at my supper.... I realized how much I rely on the things I raise, hunt or forage for myself.

Grilled pork loin and a sausage link from behind my barn, tomatoes, cucs, onions and panfried okra from by garden....









I'm not planning on growing mustard seeds for my spicy brown mustard, but I bet I could have made another spicy dipping sauce from the peppers and other items in my garden. lol

Too many people take things for granted Miss S! I wish I were in more of a position to live off the land. You have got some major talents girl!

is there any thing you can't do?

Thank you Mr D I mean S. lol

You do pretty well for yourself too with the hunting you do up there. It's a nice feeling to provide your own food. :)

Hi Rocco, Thank you!
There are a lot of things I can't do..... one of them is finding time to get on facebook! lol

If you tell us that you hand made and glazed the plate as well as cut down an oak to fashion the table, then we're all going to hate you;)

Nicely done. The okra reminds me of the okra my grandmother used to make for me on her farm in NC. Awesome!
