Today, we walk through something we have never really discussed on the podcast: Easy to Bake Bread via a process I learned from Geraldine Duncan – one of my early in life influencers and inspirers – the lady who showed me not to fear taking on big tasks in the kitchen. 

We will also walk through some homestead hijinks as this week has been crazy and when it is crazy on the homestead, your animals can sense something is up and I SWEAR they become crazy themselves. Or spring is in the air – either way.

Today is Friday so we have a Thought of the Walk episode. This is a short show where I talk through an idea I had while walking with my dogs, or sitting around the fire. American ingenuity is one thing that has made our economy grow despite all the fetters instilled upon it by government. It has lead to breakthroughs. But are we losing it?

And you know what Wednesday – er I mean Thursday means: We have a homestead focused episode today and I thought it was about time to have the second in our cheese series. Why? Because last week, I was on the road and one of my favorite things to do to eat well is to make a plate with veggies, pickled things hard yummy cheeses and meats in place of a heavy dinner meal. This is even more fun when you can grab a nice cheddar you have been aging and add some slices of that to the mix.

Today we have a replay episode. The cement pad has been poured and people are still on site putting in the final touches on it and I am just dying to have a DANCE PARTY. But the episode on making hard cheeses is a bit much to jump into at this late hour, so I bring you a replay of an episode from one year ago. We were getting ready for the first spring workshop ever. I got completely publicly reamed by someone in a board meeting in a very inappropriate way. And it got me to thinking about ways to deescalate tense situations. Something we can all use a reminder about, right?

SO, enjoy the episode formerly knows as 76.

Make it a Great Week!
