    • Woke early and have been eating all day -

      B: Apple, two eggs, two slices bacon. Chocolate.

      Snacks at random intervals throughout the day: More chocolate, a pear, some raisins. A few almonds. Drink of hot chocolate. Spoonful of peanut butter. Honey. Handful of dates etc - I can't remember exactly.

      L: Banana pancakes and more bacon with butter and honey.

      Dinner was slowcooker roast beef and mustard with mixed roast veges - parsnip, kumara and carrot. Finally satisfied.


      Actually, now that I look at this list it doesn't seem so bad, just that I never really stopped eating all day. Also I dished my husband too much dinner and he couldn't eat it all. I wonder if he's been having junk food at work, or maybe just not a hungry day (unlike mine haha).

      • Ate some food. Played the piano. Went for a walk. Posted a letter. No wonder I haven't been writing in my journal, must dream up some primal-inspired escapade to do tomorrow.

        • Moved rocks in the sunshine. Chased chickens out of my vege garden. Drove to the farm for my raw milk.

          To Do Tomorrow: Take a worm census.

              I'm curious - how does one do such a thing?
              I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                I just took the lid off my worm farm and lifted up some of the gunk to see if my worms had multiplied. I didn't actually do a head count - in fact I'm not even sure worms have heads - but I could see there are a number alive and wriggling in there. Not enough to make it worth feeding them to the chickens yet, but there were also three huge slugs, one each for my dear layers. So that was my first worm census.

                  • I can see the census now. :::Knock knock knock:::

                    Hi, my name is Annieh and I'm with the census bureau. Can you tell me if any worms live here? How many, please? Are they all considered one family or does more than one family live at this dwelling?



                    I didn't see your post in recipes 'til hours after you posted, but I answered. Our turkeys aren't wild and have built in thermometers, but I did the best I could.

                    • chooks love slaters too. the kids used to hunt for them under pieces of rotten wood to feed our chooks when we had them. i've also heard about hanging a piece of meat above the chook run out of reach of the chooks so as the maggots all fall off and feed the chooks. i wasnt game enough to try that myself lol

                      • Seaweed, I've heard about the maggots too but that sounds just gross to me. I didn't think of slaters, that would be a good option.

                        Joanie, thanks for the input on the turkey, I need not have been nervous it was just like a big chicken. Reading everyone's ideas was interesting though, I would never have dreamed of either brining it or deep frying - in fact my mind boggles, I just can't imagine how that would be achieved.

                              yes, brining chicken is phenom way to keep the breast meat nice and juicy..... most baked chicken is over done and dry, to get the legs done, or the breasts are juicy and the legs are not quite done.... but brining helps aleviate that problem... and mayo on the skin makes it nice and crispy, if you are in to that kinda thing...
