Even though we didn’t get the 6″ we were promised, there was enough for sledding. We whipped each other around on a car hood behind the gator until we were frozen, then I had the bright idea to hit the hill in the horse pasture on the flying saucers. All fun and games until Shane’s sled hit a rough patch and stopped, and he kept going into a backward somersault landing on his head – then I went full speed on mine into a snow covered pointy rock that had Jill’s Kidney written all over it. After  the immobilizing pain subsided we  collected our sleds and made the walk of shame back to the gator bahaha! Snow day over.

I won’t be at the market next Saturday, but I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow with  red russian kale, curly kale, swiss chard, Butterball potatoes, sweet potatoes and wheat.

We have a special on NY Strip this week, 20% off.

I’ll have our grass fed, grass finished Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, sirloins,  skirt, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco,  short ribs, soup bones, liver,  eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts, shoulder roast and rump roast. Bologna, pastrami, corned beef & hot dogs made without added nitrates or nitrites.

We still have the ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 .


The cows got new ear tags yesterday, the old ones were too faded to read. Lots of folks around here have cows and when we get a call in the middle of the night because someone’s cows are in the road, Shane  gets up and goes to see if they’re ours. So this time he used 2 different color ear tags to make the cows easy to identify. They’ve only made a break for it once since I’ve lived here.20170112_221103758_iOS

By the end of it he looked like a Waffle House hash brown. Smothered, covered, chunked and splattered. The ground is super soggy from the snow then rain.


Easy grilled beef satay with philly steak! And spicy peanut (but with almond butter) sauce

I’ll see you guys tomorrow!
