Spring Turkey Season is over and my husband and I had so much fun hunting together once again. Here I am after the hunt on the first week.
There is nothing like being in the woods before daylight and watching and listening to the world wake up. The first week of turkey season the dogwoods were in full bloom, it was just beautiful. One morning in addition to hearing the turkeys gobble, I had a woodpecker beside me trying to take a tree down I swear. I squirrel scampered by and I saw a deer too. I had a successful hunt this year getting a turkey the first week and another one the last week and all on my own. I don't blog about hunting but we do cook and eat the harvest we take. We are grateful to have the opportunity to live on this great farm where we are lucky enough to be able to hunt turkey and deer. And there you go, I can hunt it, cook it and serve it up at "Dishin it up at Deena's"
One of the new recipes I have tried in the last couple of weeks. It was very good. My husband wants it again soon. I served it with some leftover corn and leftover roasted vegetables.
Chicken Pot Pie Bubble Up
2 cups of cooked chopped chicken
1 can (10.75) oz cream of chicken soup (I used the healthy request)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1 12 oz can refrigerated Grands Jr biscuits.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spray a glass 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl stir together all ingredients including frozen vegetables. Remove biscuits from can and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Toss with chicken mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
A project done over the weekend. I painted some Mason jars with Annie Sloan old white chalk paint and embellished them a little. Right now I have one on my desk at work with Redbud branches in it. It looks really pretty. I also painted this little bunny I picked up at the flea market a while back. It was just stained brown.
This little beautiful girl was born last week to our Lucky Girl, who was raised on a bottle so she is very tame. Actually Lucky had twins but the other one didn't survive. She allows us to hug on her baby and herself but after a couple of days the babies don't want to be hugged. The other night we were checking for new babies
when we saw Ellie standing alone looking for her Mom. I got off the
buggy and knelt down and called her and she came running to me and came
right up to me. When she figured it out she turned and walked away but
not without letting me pet her. And that folks is one of the reasons I
love this farm life.

It's always a joy for me to get to witness a birth of a new baby calf. This one just born when we got there. Still wet and Mom starts talking to it and making noises. She is saying I'll dry you off little one and then you get up and eat. And he does. This is a registered Short Horn cow and she was bred to a registered Hereford Bull. This is what we got from that combination. A handsome little fella indeed! Have I mentioned I love farm life?
Welcome to my blog. I am a Farm Girl at heart and a photographer, still working full time and love to decorate my home. I am married to my wonderful husband for 31 years who puts up with all my ideas and believe me I have many. We have a little male Yorkie named Jake, a Manchester Terrier named Molly and lots of cattle. Both of our dogs are rescues from bad situations. We treat our cattle better than most people probably treat their kids. We love all our animals. I work at a major University as a Administrative Assistant and do photography professionally on the side. My husband was the owner of an archery business for 35 years but we recently sold the business and we now raise cattle full time
. I love to decorate our home and scour antique shops and flea markets for unique items all the time. You can usually find me out and about on Saturdays looking. I help my friends decorate their homes too. I love to bake and am always taking things to work. We love to go to Wyoming on vacations. We raise cattle and something you might not expect from me is my husband and I love to Turkey Hunt together. I can't wait for spring turkey season.
