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

Disliking February

February is not my favorite month and this year its shaping up to my most disliked month ever.  It has always been my least creative month and right now it feels like a month of waiting.
