Ok, I'm just bursting to share & who better to share these things with than YOU? I've been so busy that I am SO far behind on my blogging!
Last weekend I got a used Chest Freezer off Craiglist for agood price, it's almost liek new & works great! It's about 4 ft wide, I think it's about 14 cubic ft...? Anyhoo, it works GREAT! I was so excited to transfer everything to it from my small stand up freezer & the tiny one in the house! It looked very nice & organized for about 5 minutes! Naw, just kidding, it's still looking pretty good, I just REALLY need to get a 'working inventory list' going & stick with it so I always know what's in it! See in the top left corner? That's the Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment I just got last week (WHAT??? I had a gift card!) So far I've tried an all RAW creamy Peach Ice Cream, Peach Sorbet & Strawberry Sorbet, I love that I can use honey in them! Now I just need a source for raw goat's milk & I can give Laloo's a run for their money! EIGHT DOLLARS a pint at Whole Foods (and ya can't get it anywhere else locally!) I don't think so!
On Wednesday I received my Kitchen Mill! I already used it! ;)
On Friday I noticed sprouts in my garden that I just seeded in the last 2 weeks! YIPEE!
Today I received my dehyrator! You can buy from Excalibur directly, I got a Refurbished model, because they come with a 10 yr warranty & the lower price on it allowed me to get the bigger, better model. It has 9 trays! I also got some of those Paraflexx sheets for it, so I will working on some Fruit leathers & stuff like that!
I knew it was coming so I had wheat berries ready for it!

- Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
