Do you see the turkey tracks...
and Big Bird Turkey up the tree preparing to roost?
Well, I have a better plan. You know how our food does not always come from the grocery store? and how our forefathers had to hunt for their meals? not much has changed in the north woods.
We do grocery shop, ( like I did this time,) but we have been fortunate enough to ' eat off the land.' Venison from the deer the guys are trying to harvest with bow, rifle or black powder gun, turkey season is long past but unsuccessful, ( so I shopped ), geese and ducks were hunted by my grandson and son, they ' were ' successful. Partridge line a shelf in the freezer thanks to another son and dear husband. Plenty of pan fish from the waters during the spring and summer. You will not catch me on the ice, ice fishing, tho the guys bring in plenty of walleye. My brother and Hubby provide the trout each year from the spring-fed waters.
Oh, they are a treat!
To top it all off, we have every vegetable we could hope for on the pantry shelves, in the freezer and dried.
So, you see, we are so thankful for the gifts of our provider, our Lord and Savior.
Today, I start early, preparing for our Thanksgiving Dinner.
Ours comes early each year. It's our way of sharing our children with their in-laws and moms. Turkey day is just a day, whereas, Thanksgiving is every day. Share it with those you love if you can.
Now, I have some cooking and baking to do.
