Heading West!

We’re in the midst of a very American road trip west this week … we just left Keystone, South Dakota and the Black Hills area, where we visited Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Deadwood. Today we’re traveling through part of Wyoming and Montana, with Little Bighorn National Monument, Pompey’s Pillar, and eventually Billings, Montana […] Read more…

Turkey is Family

Hands down, one of my favorite business trips of the year for Minnesota Turkey is my annual trek to Washington DC in July. My boss and I take a group of our leaders –  mostly farmers and sometimes a student or two  – to our nation’s capitol to participate in the National Turkey Federation Summer […] Read more…

Enjoying the little life moments.

I have just spent two days without wearing any makeup. None at all.  And we have had absolutely no schedule. I even had two naps yesterday. Yes. Two naps. Bliss. Total bliss. My son has probably had too much screen time – but he has helped me with watering the gardens without any complaint and […] Read more…

Weekend Snaps | Catching Up

Oh my goodness. I actually cannot believe I haven’t blogged since after Memorial Day weekend.

Weekend Snaps | My Gardens

It was a miserable weekend, weather-wise … 40s and cold rain. Is this really May 21? But on the flip-side, my cousin and her daughter visited from Iowa and it was a blast to see them!  Plus … my 13-year-old had his first date! I know – whaaaat? He and a girl went to the movies […] Read more…

May Flowers

Finally. Gardening season is here! Time to get my hands dirty. Time to get planting. Time to create beautiful pots of flowers to pretty up the front porch. Time to get out the chicken wire to deter the bunnies. Hey, not everything about gardening is fun. 😉 Here are a few photos of what I’ve […] Read more…

Turkey Tuesday: Turkey Ricotta Meatballs

I found another favorite turkey meatball recipe! I know, I know …. I kind of have a thing for turkey meatballs.  These are moist, flavorful, and hold up well – without being too firm. I most recently served them with an alfredo-marinara sauce over penne pasta, sprinkled with Asiago cheese. Delish! But these would also […] Read more…
