Well, I must say, the title of my last post mocks me. It’s been over a month since I actually published a post.
It’s not really procrastination though. I’ve actually WRITTEN a lot of posts, but – mostly due to photo issues – decided not to publish them until I was happy with the look. There’s some good stuff in there though, so I have decided to publish them over the next month or so. It may be nice to have posts in reserve, since the Christmas season is here with all its busy-ness.
There are several new recipe posts in there. I’ve got a LOT of rabbit in the freezer, and I only had a few ways of cooking it, so I’ve been experimenting a lot. Just last night had tried something new that I called a “Paula-Deen recipe” … it used several “convenience” items, but since I’ve never tasted Russian dressing, I thought I’d try it out. It was another keeper, though I’ll want to find ways to make it more from scratch (translation: cheaper AND healthier). I’ll go ahead and publish that one right after I post this. I’ve also made apple butter, not to mention some really yummy Thanksgiving desserts.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, I got to drive over to visit with my family this year. We used to have HUGE family dinners, and then my Grandma passed away and the family seemed to dwindle. Grandma and Grandpa Peevy, Great Grandma Hall, lots of great-aunts and great-uncles, my Mother and my Uncle Terry. But now … my cousins are showing up to dinner with new boyfriends and girlfriends, and in some cases their friends. Second cousins are being born, growing up year by year. The family is growing again, and it’s wonderful to see. I love family gatherings … I wish I could see them more often. Probably one of my deepest sources of nostalgia.
And how could it not be? If you had a brother like mine (he loves to act crazy … see what I mean?)
And animal drama (I have a sad stories to tell about Pearl and Romeo, but both clouds have silver linings). I’ve written some new livestock information posts (I knew about lazy buck syndrome but because of circumstances we ended up having it happen here – what ever happened to rabbits breeding like, well, rabbits?).
There are also some household tips I’ve picked up recently, and some family stories mixed in there.
But a good many of the posts are about crafts, turning trash to treasure, home decorating, and DIY projects. The readers have spoken … the greatest interest you all show is in these kinds of posts, and I really don’t mind. Those are the “fun” posts for me too, so I’ll be happy to share plenty of them along with the rest.
Stand by for the first held-over post … a yummy rabbit dish!
