Homemade Peach Cobbler

Homemade Peach Cobbler

My Grand pick up a box of fresh peaches for me last week and they were some of the best I've ever eaten. I decided to make my family some peach cobbler for a treat after supper (so sad I didn't get any because I'm still doing 75 hard) but we did freeze some so I can make it again later. You can make cobbler from canned of course but fresh is the best in my opinion. This from scratch recipe is super easy to do and comes out great! Fun fact: peaches are probably my favorite thing to eat if I had to pick one. When I was pregnant with Paisley, all I ate were peaches and I'm surprised she didn't come out smelling like one. HA! My great grandmother taught me how to can growing up and we canned a lot of things but our best prize always came from our peaches. We even one The State Fair of Oklahoma once and were featured in Country Woman magazine. Ingredients: 5-6 peaches peeled, cored, and...

Growing Babies

Growing Babies

I just wanted to pop on and share one of our growing babies. If you've followed me on Instagram, you know that we decided to jump into the registered part of raising long horns last year and this is our very first registered baby we've raised. We have some big goals and plans for our growing herd and are excited to explore this part within TLBAA with our girls. This little bull calf is such a neat little dude and is already sold. He will be going to his new home in November. Mulberry is such a great mama and I'm excited for more babies out of her. We pick up a new heifer and bull this fall and I'll be sure to update you when we unload them on the ranch.

Our Family Daily Rhythm (including homeschool, home life, and business ownership)

Our Family Daily Rhythm (including homeschool, home life, and business ownership)

With juggling two girls, a business, farming, firefighter life and homeschooling, you can imagine the chaos of our day-to-day. Having a daily rhythm helps us all be as intentional with our time as we can. If there's one thing I've learned this summer, it's that I can waste a lot of time and feel overwhelmed with the remainder. I ultimately feel like my day is gone before it's ever started. Being intentional and learning to adopt a rhythm rather than trying to stick to a strict schedule,(let's be honest-like we could if we wanted to) for our days rids me of a lot of anxiety and helps me obtain some ownership of the day, feeling at peace and with a little control if our day ends up not turning out like we expected. I love a schedule and do try to be diligent about specific things within our day but I also try to have a lot of margin so if things don't go as planned or if we just want to...

Easy Crockpot Roast

Easy Crockpot Roast

I love this meal because it’s easy to prep and there’s no work on my part. It’s ready when I come home and easy to transport to the hayfield. TIP: I like to marinate my roast overnight for extra flavor. I don’t measure but I mix garlic salt, onion powder, pink Himalayan salt, and pepper into a bowl and rub all over, heavily coating it. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator. To cook, grab your crockpot, quarter Yukon gold potatoes and cut your carrots unless you’re using baby carrots. Add a layer to the bottom of your crockpot, set roast on top, add the rest of your potatoes/carrots, slice a white onion into strips and throw in, cover with water until all is covered. Pop lid on and put on low for 8 hours. When you come home, your house will smell amazing and all you have to do is serve! I usually throw some green beans on the stove and...

Hayfield Wife Hacks

Hayfield Wife Hacks

I've had a lot of questions come in about transporting food, meals, favorite products, etc. Today I thought I'd share a few tips and tricks regarding Hayfield Meals and will probably end up extending this to a two part post on down the road. For now, here are some tried and true things that I do to make hay season a little easier. We all know the feeling of our vehicles being the mobile kitchen table, water wagons, and what have you. The entire back half of mine is usually dedicated to storing my "feed bag", ice chest, and whatever food I'm delivering that day. Get an ice chest that YOU can carry but will also fit your meals or whatever you need to keep cold. Most of the guys already have their own ice chests or backpacks in their tractors so it's rare that I ever bring drinks. I love this one I purchased. It's perfect size, I leave it in my suburban (which has also proved handy when...

My Homeschool Planner

My Homeschool Planner

One of the things I use the most in my daily life is a planner so when we decided to homeschool, I knew this would be a must have to keep us on task and organized with lessons. I also need some structure based on my personality and really like to plan "seasons" at a time. I ordered this from Home and Haven and have enjoyed it so far! It's simple which I think is key but also has some great elements like prayer for us to incorporate in our morning time, meals, and monthly/hourly/weekly layouts. For now this is what I am using but am always open to other ideas. It's served me well thus far and I love that it's NOT dated. You're able to start whenever you'd like. They have a digital option you can purchase here. Enjoy!
