Fried Mushrooms

This recipe was requested after I posted the pic of them on Facebook. Fried mushrooms are an often requested treat here at my house.

An Eggsperiment

Last summer, our chickens went into egg laying overtime. We had one fridge completely full of cartons and several more cartons in another fridge. Eggs were everywhere. No sooner did we get some cleared out then more filled in the vacant spots. We had read they could be frozen for cooking. Deciding this was a … Continue reading
