Ducklings learning to swim

  The great thing about living near a farm store is that I no longer need to have baby fowl delivered via postal service. The bad thing about living near a farm store is that I just cannot stay away. Last week, the kids and I snuck over there while Scott was out of town and brought this little guy …

Vegetable Thai Curry Noodle Soup

We’ve been a little distracted for the past week, new babies, another new baby that is just learning how to waddle and getting quotes to build a new fence for animals (sheep! alpaca! bunnies!)

Unfortunately, they also like my delicate lettuce leaves too, so we haven’t had …

Grilled Shrimp Chinese Style Recipe

Chinese Grilled Shrimp
