Photo Friday…Dinners All Around!

For photo Friday this week I thought I’d share one of those, “How do you do it all?” moments that me and some of my other farmer gal friends had this past week.  It is no secret that while running a house and a farm, life can get crazy, hectic, downright overwhelming to be honest.  So a few of us decided to try to ease the pain on one of the sticking points in life…dinner.

Dinner in our house during the summer months of harvest is tough when your family is out in the field until all hours of the night, sometimes even overnight.  We also feed our harvest crew every evening that they are working, so every casserole, every slow cook meal, it all adds up to a much easier and yummy-er time for all.  It takes a lot more than just a harvester and a truck to get our crop to market, sometimes…it takes dinner!

So we found a “chief” to be in charge (Kathy because she has done this before and her kitchen is beautiful!) and we all showed up to be the “Indians” for the afternoon.  

And for a few-ish hours we chopped, sliced, diced, browned, measured and labeled to our hearts (or more than or heart’s) content.  

We all walked away with a cooler filled with 5 delicious meals all ready to bake or slow cook. 

Carrying out such a huge pack of food was one thing, but catching up with friends, teaching our kids tricks of cooking, and just plain drinking a glass of wine together made the night well worth it!

Davor was particularly impressed by our efficiency…or maybe not by the look on his face!


So happy Friday! And I’m hoping to include some photos and recipes as I use up my home cooked meals, so stay tuned!!
