Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration this weekend! We made an entire weekend out of ours, filled with lots of family time, laughs, and FOOD!
Zeb, our Miniature Zebu steer, still suffers from a lack of trust…and I honestly can’t blame him. He wouldn’t venture out for a taste until after we left. Oh well, I hope he liked his goodies!
We spent the rest of that day and the next enjoying our family that we are truly so blessed to have! (There MAY have been a little shopping thrown in for good measure…) We also enjoyed some delicious food, like my secret family recipe for Pumpkin Roll and some amazing homemade cranberry sauce! Until I tried this year, I never knew it was so easy to make!
Then on Saturday, after our bellies were sufficiently stuffed, we processed two does from Handsome Hubby’s successful hunting trip! It’s the sweet taste of justice for those does who filled up on our garden earlier this year. We made Italian sausage, ground venison, canning meat, and of course steaks! Three cheers for a full freezer! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray!
We also did a bit of decorating for Christmas! (Still working on the pictures…you’ll have to tune in to our next Swamp Farm update for those!)
We finished out this holiday weekend with a wonderful church service (where my sister-in-law played drums in the worship band for the first time, woohoo!) and then rested after a busy and wonderful long weekend. Cuddly family, cozy fire, and a book about the first Thanksgiving. It doesn’t get much better than that!
We hope you had a blessed Holiday weekend with lots of family, friends and good food too!
