Weekend Homestead Happenings

Some people may think it a bit smug to blog about grocery budgets, meal planning and prepping, or homestead happenings right now because some in this country are amidst protesting and expressing their opinions over the newly elected president.  And, I suppose there are more important things right now than my meal plan or the number of eggs the chickens laid yesterday, and believe me, it’s not that I don’t care.

But…. the sun will rise tomorrow, the chickens will need to be taken care of and we will have to eat, so here we go…

Weekend happenings…  well first I’m sorry I’m late with this post, but yesterday was a very busy day of snacking and lounging because it was a “snow” day from work for me.  😉

I made yogurt, but I also made coconut yogurt with coconut milk.  Yep, I just took a couple cans of coconut milk and used the exact same process that I always do for making yogurt and it turned out perfect.  My coconut yogurt does contain dairy, because I used a dairy culture (dairy yogurt) to make it.

I’ve loved adding it to my morning smoothies.  I had those two cans of coconut milk in my pantry for quite a while, so it was time to use them.

Last weeks “eat the freezer” went good.  But, we decided to carry it on into this week because well um…..

As you can see, there is still a lot of eating to be done.

I did do some meal prep this weekend.  I cut up veggies for meals and snacks for the week.  There is two containers of veggies for us, a bag of veggie scraps and pieces for the freezer for making stock and a nice bowl of snacks for the chickens.

Other than that the Z Man continued on stockpiling wood for next year and I pretty much spent the weekend piddling in the kitchen.

Oh, and by the way we got 5 eggs yesterday, just in case you did want to know. 😉

How about you, how was your weekend?

Till next time, stay safe out there y’all!
