How I Make Tall Guy Happy: Food from the Farm

Guess what I do when I want to butter up Tall Guy......

NO!  Not that.....well...uhm....oh...uhm....

OK, I'm talking about appealing to his stomach, and just last weekend the girls and I wanted to make Daddy very happy with us. Stay tuned because the next post will tell you what we did.

The first step to this mission Happy Daddy/Husband had me heading to our freezers and pulling out goodies that we grow on the farm.  He LOVES it when I use home-grown/found foods

I'm kind of blessed because we have TWO freezers dedicated to holding our farm foods. One is for fruits like peaches, blueberries, applesauce, and apple pie filling, and veggies, like asparagus and CORN!


and one is for meat,which does include a shelf for chicken/pork and a shelf for seafood/fish; the rest is all HOME RAISED BEEF!.

Yeah, I need to defrost this last one!

After returning from this weekend girl trip, I ran out to the garage and started grabbing Tall Guy's favorite foods to whip up one of his favorite meals.  I went for the rhubarb, asparagus, and a BIG T-bone steak.

The rhubarb went toward a rhubarb pie,


the asparagus for a stove top fry,


and the steak (awww.... Go to this link to see Tink and Bear when they were little cuties) went out to the grill.



Fairly simple, and more importantly, it seemed to work.  He hardly flinched about the extent of our girls-only weekend in Chicago where we and another mom/daughter pair spent most of our time and money.....But that's a story for the next blog post!

I am participating in Indiana's Family of Farmers Table Talk Series and received a gift in exchange for my participation.  We are learning to take better food pictures for our blogs!  Here's to hoping I can figure it all out. It won't be for lack of trying or tools and tricks provided to me!
