Grandma Fried Her Sweet Potatoes on a Wood Burning Stove!


This post was done in 2014 over at Dolly is Cooking.  I thought since it is sweet potato season it would be a good thing to transfer over to main blog here.

Do you like sweet potatoes?  I do they are so versatile.  There is nothing like a baked sweet potato, so moist, sweet and delicious.  I love when you bake them and some sweet juice has caramelized underneath the potato.  That is the one I would choose off of the baking pan. 

You can make a southern favorite Sweet Potato Pie!  My Mama and grandmothers also made something that they called Sweet Potato Pudding, delicious hot or cold.  Souffles, casseroles, sweet potato fries, there are any number of ways to use this very healthy vegetable that tastes like a desert...wow think about that!

Today we are frying sliced sweet potatoes.

Sunday Chicken Day: Chicken and Duck Talk


This Summer has really flown by and the animals out here have grown so quickly.  The Spring Chick Days were fun and I kept to my less chicks this year. I was thrilled to find this perky little endangered heritage breed Silver Campine Rooster! Funny thing is, two ducks found their way into my shopping cart and that has been an adventure to say the least.

Becoming Butterflies




This has been an interesting Summer, to be sure!  Our herb gardens didn't stand a chance!  We were invaded by these creatures (I'm kidding, well sort of)!

I love Butterflies actually and have planted a garden for them out back.  They surprised me this year with the sheer numbers that came out to eat and grow!

We soon gave it up for these beauties, and watched with excitement the stages they went through becoming butterflies!
