Good Pickins’ #10

This weekend, four generations of my family are together at my grandmother’s house to celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s been a long time since all of us were together, so I am thrilled to get to spend time with my family in this way!

June 2014 113What does this picture have to do with Thanksgiving time, you may ask? Well, this photo of J won a summer photo contest at our local turkey/strawberry farm… and the prize was a free turkey! Thanks to my handsome little man surveying the John Deere, we can feast on poultry this year without spending a dime (on the bird, anyway).

On to the pickins’! I’ve got a theme going on this week- taking care of Turkey-Day leftovers, and taking care of sickness. Both duties have fallen upon me. I have a load of food to preserve for the coming weeks, and a head cold to boot. Here’s what I’ve been reading up on:
