My chickens have started flying the coop, literally. They’ve figured out how to hop over the fence, well, hop fly. And unknown to me, the decrease in egg production was actually them just preferring a more natural nesting environment.Read More
They want out. He wants in so he can do to them what he’s doing to this bucket. Chewing the crap out of it. Since we got Bob in March we’ve been doing this shuffling act of letting him out, putting him in, letting the chicken out, putting them up,Read More
The thing that keeps me from eating out more than anything else is an easy, delicious, fast meal. Jason and I will hit that 7:00PM wall where dinner really needs to be on the table like a half hour ago, we’re both hungry, we are both tired from working allRead More
By Friday the coop was just about ready to go. All we had to do was get some previsions and put on the roof.

We’ve been having curried chicken quite a lot and I just wasn’t feeling that with the green peppers. Hmm… hmmmmmmmm. I started with soy sauce and started adding spices. It was absolutely delicious! Jason gave it 2 thumbs up.
For today’s Thursday in the Thrift Kitchen I’m going to switch it up a bit. Instead of sharing a recipe, I’m going to share a new (to me) recipe book with you. Missy Chase Lapine has really put together a fine collection of Sneaky Chef recipes for The Sneaky Chef: How toRead More
