Wednesday chats

Doing Patrice's Farmhouse Chats today!

We're staring into an interminable period of Tule fog. But one of the neighbors is anticipating spring. They're even helping it along with silk flowers in a bush.

I chuckle every time I walk by.

Anyway, onto the meme questions!

Kimberly asks: How long have you blogged?

I started up my art blog in August 2009, and this blog in February of 2010. So 3 years, give or take. My art blog gets me to occasionally draw things, and this blog helps me stay in touch with family.

Lana asks:What is the most difficult part of taking care of chickens?

Keeping their pen cleaned and keeping them entertained. Bored chickens are destructive to themselves and their eggs. Chickens aren't much harder than any other pet, provided you don't have too many of them. And you can play with them and make them into pets just like any cage bird. Except you can banish chickens to the coop when you're tired of them. :-)

Susannah asks: Would you prefer to live where it's hot or cold?

Somewhere hot. Oh wait, I already live there! I can't tolerate the cold. I can't do real extreme heat, like the Sahara, but Southern Cali isn't too bad.

Farm Girl asks: What sort of things are you looking forward to in 2012?

That depends on a lot of things. Holidays and birthdays, hanging out with family, canning time rolling around again. Beyond that, the future is uncertain so I have no plans.

Dreaming asks: What's for dinner?

Beef stroganoff! I only just realized that Hamburger Helper is stroganoff in a box. Except when you make it from scratch it has a sour cream sauce and stuff. So I'll give it a shot tonight and see how folks like it. The munchkins are hugely picky right now. I don't know how health-food people get their kids to eat anything fermented or whatever. If I make food that tastes slightly off, they turn up their noses.

I have been looking for a good Stroganoff recipe. Let me know how yours goes and I might yoink it from you. ;)

Farm Girl said...

Nice questions, I hope they like it, I made it the other night and I think I was the only one who liked it but they were polite.
I am glad you decided to play along this week.

When my kids didn't like the sour cream in the stroganoff, I substituted cream cheese. It makes it so rich and good. Just a thought.
Wow! You've been blogging for a while. Three years ago, I didn't even know what a blog was. Now it's such a part of normal life.

We're not getting any winter this year and I WANT IT! Not extreme mind you- LOL

How did the stroganoff go over with the family? I hoped that they like it. I didn't like it the first time I had it, but do now. :)

I'm here from Patrice's porch. Have a great night!
