Domestic Doings Down on the Homestead

Taking a break from the road means all sorts of advantages for us.

With a full-sized oven, we can make huge batches of Alton Brown’s Homemade Granola.

Revisiting favorite bric-a-brac brings back good memories.

and we eat really, really well because we have a huge fridge, freezer and pantry to store lots of good eats

All this cooking and lounging around is gonna make us fat.

Good thing there’s lot of manual labor to be done around here!

  6. Forgot to mention we have a ton of projects going on here too. We have someone coming to paint the top of the house starting tomorrow. Sam and I then need to get to work replacing the chinking between the logs. It’s way too hot to do anything.

  7. Thanks for the link to the granola recipe! All I need now is my oven to be put in!

  8. I guess sitting on our butts working on our laptops all day is now considered “lounging” … I better go move some more rocks.
