My famous honey garlic wings

So you want a tasty homemade treat for dinner?

Try my famous honey garlic wings…. our wings are like jumbo wings of course that’s because we raise our own chickens.

I like to broil the wings in the oven about 15 mins per side depending on the size of your wings. They get nice and crispy.

You can serve them up with ranch, blue cheese or your favorite dippy sauce and or carrot and celery sticks

Yummy. I make the honey garlic sauce very easily by adding all the ingredients in microwave safe dish for about 2 minutes(til its boiling).

When the wings are cooked I pour the sauce over them toss them up and serve them out

Enjoy….. Vanessa

Barney….. chief critter catcher

Sorry, we did not post anything til now…. had a busy couple days with a sick kitty. He wasn’t well 2 days ago, started to improve yesterday a bit. Had some more serious symptoms today so he went to the walk in kitty hospital. (Atlantic Vet College) the bestest doctors ♡

He has some inflammation and pain so he on some meds for the next couple days. He had the nods on the way home and is now finally having a really good sleep. You can see the meds are taking away the pain and stress and letting him have a great sleep.

We don’t know exactly what he got into but something….. he has a heart murmur which makes things he goes through a little more stressful and serious for him… but he is one of our best critter catchers…

Wordless Wednesday – November 3rd

This could have been so very bad if was warmer outside today….. I was moving my compost pile when I disturbed a rather large hornet nest….

Fairly large hornet nest

They were not happy after I uprooted the hive… thank goodness for wasp and hornet spray…. and a Big thank you to God that today was cold. We might have been taking pictures of the inside of an ambulance or hospital room. 🐝 🐝🐝

Wordless Wednesday- October 27th

The coffee bar wall is almost completely covered with drywall…..

We have a strip of drywall to go on the bottomed then it is ready for seam filling. Yes that is our precious canned jars on the floor. We had to move the shelf.

You are probably wondering why the drywall did not go all the way to the doorway opening 🤔 well that is because the new opening is gonna be wider.

Yes, the plumbing will eventually be hidden too.

A little bit of food security for us♡

Farm to freezer (plate)

Daily “meat” chicken chores completed.
It was a cold drive, had to warm up by the fire.
We will have some really amazing food for a while: chicken wings, boney broth, roasts, stir fries, legs, liver, etc♡ we don’t waste much….
10lb chicken, a perfect “turkey size” for us. Those chicken breaststroke are big enough for a meal with leftovers.
The new upstairs freezer is full….all cut and ready to go. We have 12 whole chickens in the downstairs freezer for roasting.

A Very Blessed Thanksgiving

We want to wish all our friends and family a very, very blessed Thanksgiving.

We are so grateful for God’s hand, protection, leading and guidance this year. We started the year with many uncertainties, but He was so good to bring us through.

Vanessa had some health challenges that began at the beginning of the year and now into the fall she is finally getting better.

God has taken care of our needs providing time in and again. God provided Russ and Bob with work and they have not gone without the means to provide for thier families.

The gardens even though not as full as they would normally be for veggie boxes provided a beautiful harvest that was eaten fresh all season and now canned and stored on our shelves for fall and winter.

We have an amazing stack of firewood going into the basement that will provide our old house with plenty of warmth this winter season.

The animals growing out in the barn area will provide lots of food for days, weeks, and months.

So we have so much to be grateful for and we thank God for the protection, health and provisions.

We also thank God for the freedom and ability to share our faith and His love to those around us♡.

If you don’t know Jesus, get to know Him he is the greatest part of our lives and He makes such a difference.
