They can be farmed in a much smaller space than large livestock, and require a substantially lower quantity of water and feed to rear to adult size” Quoted From MSN This is why we should be eating insects

Dealing with Heel Pain. I have heal pain. When it is acting up it keeps me from my walking exercises. It has forced me to leave my 2nd job at Advanced Auto Parts. If you have experienced it you know what I am talking about. When you get up from a resting position it hurts. And getting up during the night or in the morning can be excruciating. This is a condition called “Plantar Fasciitis” In my case once I found a treatment it was easy and immediate relief from the pain.
Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into muddy messes. Everyone curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life, the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns.
Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to spend it either. She would spend money on big hams, or that huge turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret! Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves
Have I got a treat of a recipe for your crock pot today. Slow cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”. I went to the Google’s to see what the Italian translation for Chicken Gizzards was and found out that my conglomeration was a recipe. I had never heard of SoFrit. Oh by the way, the Italian translation for chicken gizzards is “Ventriglio Di Pollo”. Olives-N-Okra talk about Sofrit, or chicken gizzards & hearts in hot sauce being and old Italian dish common in Rhode Island. My ingredients are so close that I am calling my dish SoFrit. Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

Growing up in the 1970s like many children I had to help my family with the gardening. Picking rocks out of the dirt as dad ran the tiller, weeding, watering it seemed like it never ended. The only thing that never ended was my brother and I complaining that we wanted to go play. We had a large garden. My mother utilized it for all the fresh vegetables we would eat that summer. And large amounts of green beans, tomatoes were canned and potatoes stored. That garden put so many sweet pickle or as my mom called them bread and butter pickles in the cellar that it was several years after we moved before I opened the last jar. Continue reading →
Tring to be frugal today I started working with the tomatoes seed starts I had planted. The Burpee Hybrids I planted are doing amazing they are up and out with only a few slow starts. The Organic seeds from Home Farmer aren’t doing so well out of 37 Starts I have 2 Brandy Wine and 1 Cherokee Purple. To say that I am not impressed is an understatement. The Brandy Wine seeds didn’t germinate I have dissected 3 of the peat moss growing media all with the same results. The coating the seeds had on them didn’t dissolve it just became gooey and the seeds never germinated. I am hoping that this is not the case with other organic seeds. I am going to go back to my local Walmart and try Burpee Organic Tomato’s Seeds and see if I have the same issue. Problem is, now I am almost 2 weeks behind with organic tomatoes. So I have a plan.

Today is the First official Day of Spring and the Vernal Equinox according to the almanac it happens at 6:45 pm EST when the sun crosses over the celestial equator. If you are a weather man spring started March 1st. For me spring started when I opened the door the other evening and heard the Tree Frogs Peeping. About that same time I noticed that the Trees were just starting get the red Buds. The red buds are a sure sign of days getting longer. And within a few days the Red Buds Burst and what was just a hint of red is now very noticeable. Soon there will be small leaves. There is the old timers saying I heard my Grandpa say every year. Got to get the potatoes into the ground by Saint Patrick’s Day. But the Old Indian Wisdom says Plant the potato when the buds on the trees are the size of a squirrel’s ear. Well that would be about now. The Indians cultivated a lot of crops and use the signs of the season to do it by. Continue reading →
Yesterday’s Trip to Walmart let me get more seeds for my Garden. It is and exciting time of the year for people who like to garden. The seed catalogs have been in for a while. My Nanny used to call two types of catalogs Wish Books. The First was the Spring Gardening Seed Catalogs, and the Second was the Sears Christmas Catalog. Both were sent out early enough so that you can set and plan and dream of the new plants or toys. And you always wished that your garden plants or toys turned out as well. As I look back and think about that I have to admit that there is a lot of Wisdom in that observation. “We all miss you Nanny” Continue reading →
