“Ms. Staci, what’s for lunch??”  Hmmmmm, that’s a great question!

So today I was a little unprepared.  (I know, shocking.)  It’s Friday, I need to go grocery shopping, and it got down to 3°F last night.  I wasn’t feeling it.

Grilled cheese! That’s perfect! Except I used up the cheese in hubby’s lunch.  Breakfast for lunch?  Did that already this week.

I was a strict chocolate chip girl, until I tried these!

Chewy Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

My husband is a lover of oatmeal cookies!  Unfortunately for him, I never have been.  So for the past 6 years I have been stingy and selfish, sticking to my favorite chocolate chip.  I know I’m an awful wife!  I’m sorry!!  But I had never had an oatmeal cookie that just made me say Wow!  I don’t like the roughness of them and would prefer the soft gooey chocolate chip cookie any day!

This week I think I’ve found the perfect solution to our oatmeal vs. chocolate chip battle, with these Chewy Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies.  Let the battle cease!

I started making this banana bread when I moved away from home 10 years ago and haven’t strayed once!  If you ask my brother, his response is, “It’s so good you don’t need butter!”  Of course I still love butter on my banana bread but really, he is right.  You really don’t need it!

In my, not so patient, wait to make Sourdough Bread with my new Sourdough Starter, I’ve decided to try homemade English Muffins! I just couldn’t sit and look at that frothy sweet goodness anymore without incorporating it into something in my kitchen!

As homesteaders we spend plenty of time in gardens, greenhouses, barns, coops and just out in nature. But most of all of that hard work leads us right back into the kitchen. And thankfully for me the kitchen is one of my favorite places to be! Whether it’s canning, make ahead meals, dinner for that night, or a treat just because, it gives me a satisfaction knowing that it came from my own two hands, both in the kitchen and from our gardens and coop!
