I am getting into a routine for writing my newsletters now.  I am relating to my subscribers more of what changes my family made in our diet and how we came about that change.  I am going to share more of my naturalist studies and how I made things.... everything from making butter to making homemade slings out of the llama wool I spun. 
I am going back through the last 10 years or so of all the homesteading activites my children and I shared and enjoyed.  I look back and can't believe all the things homeschooling allowed us to have time for.  They had a rich learning environment out in nature and with their responsibilities for the animals.  I will share in my newsletters as much as I can to give others ideas for how they can impart that love for nature to their own kids.yucca blossom 750

Buffalo Roast

My husband and I checked out a new store nearby called The Natural Grocers. It was nice to see free range meats offered as well as an abundance of other non-processed foods and bulk herbs. We picked up some elk steaks for one meal. The taste was similar to a mild liver flavor. I loved it. We also picked up a buffalo roast. I am slow cooking it in the crockpot today.

Buffalo Roast

3 1/2 lb buffalo roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
garlic cloves 4-5
dash worcestershire sauce

Place the roast in the crockpot. Spread mushroom soup over the meat. Top with cut up onion, garlic, mushrooms or your favorite vegies and sprinkle on the worcestershire sauce. Slow cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I'm Back! Website is UP!!

Wow! Who knew learning how to build your own website could be so involved? Thanks to Chris Farrell and his book "Create Your Own Website by 3:45 This Afternoon" for helping me develop the skills necessary to learn how to do it myself! (I will be offering this free ebook to members of my newsletter subscription soon!)

My site is up! I'm still working a few bugs out, but the main thing I'm offering on my site is a free eReport "7 Tips to Boost Your Immune System Naturally" to those who subscribe to my Free weekly newsletter --The Natural Living Site Newsletter. For those who subscribe I will offer my eBook "Natural Cold and Flu Remedies" that I have spent several months researching and writing.
