Home Grown Christmas Day 16

Plan your Christmas menu and shop for it early.

Don’t get caught in the hustle and bustle of having to go out and shop for your Christmas menu during the last days before Christmas. Enjoy those days home with your family. Watch Christmas movies, visit with friends, enjoy guests in your home. So much time is wasted doing things that can already be out of the way so that you can enjoy the season without feeling pressed for time. Many dishes you can prep things ahead of time and simple store them in the fridge until time to start your meal.

This years my menu is going to be rather simple with minimal preparations.

Smoked Ducks, one with orange glaze, one with plum sauce and one with garlic glaze
Cranberry Pecan Wild Rice
Roasted brussel sprouts or asparagus
Multicolored Carrots
Multicolored Beets
Italian Cream Cake

My momma is coming for several days. I plan to spend my time with her and no standing over the stove cooking meals.

I am so excited! She hasn’t been here for Christmas in a long time. That’s the best gift for me this year. Time with my momma!

Helping Hands
Thank you for your generous donations to the rescue fund for Jack and Diana. Both of these wonderful Percheron horses were saved from the kill pens of slaughter auctions.

Jack is recovering from a severe leg injury and has many more months to go before his wounds are healed.

Diana could barely walk on her broken hooves. With extensive and expensive farrier work she is now standing tall and without pain.

She has at least a year ahead of her before her broken hooves will grow out to become healthy new feet to stand on. Her treatment will require ongoing farrier work expected to total into the thousands of dollars.

Jack and Diana both need a few hundred pounds on their bodies to be back in good health.

Through your generous donations and support Jack and Diana can expect a full return to their good health and sound footing.


My daughter's senior trip donation fund is now open. Thank you for contributing to her trip to visit England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Donation accepted through paypal.
