It's Been a Long Week

July 11th, 2013 at 12:52 am

Is it really only Thursday? Feels like I hit the ground running and never stopped. Just outdoor farm chores and indoor house cleaning and organizing and building rabbit tractors and moving rabbits outside in the morning and back inside in the evening and chicken care, etc.

We ate our first homegrown, home slaughtered, home butchered rabbit today. Took me almost a month before I was ready to take one out of the freezer and cook it, but now I know we can do this self-sufficiency thing.

I have been very busy picking berries. Because of the heat wave we have blackberries, raspberries and blueberries all ripe at once. This never happens. It is always staggered through the summer. So we are hustling to get as much picked as we can to freeze for the upcoming year.

We have spent very little this week. Mostly for things like milk for us and fresh chard and carrots for the rabbits. We are sticking to the meal plan well and DS has stopped asking to go to the store and buy chicken pot pies, his weakness. I am determined to keep our spending down and I am feeling better with several home cooked meals under my belt again. When you get out of the habit, you really get out of the habit.

    I agree with your statement of "when you get out of the habit..." How true! I think also once we eat out, we get the desire for the salty taste because it seems like every restaurant uses a ton of salt in their foods. We met friends the other night at a restaurant and I was thirsty the whole evening after eating their food. I cook with very little salt and when I eat something salty, I can tell the difference.

    I feel it more when the weekend hits, I don't want to cook or pull something out of the freezer!

    I give up. What's a rabbit tractor?
