Today on the Farm, we put 24 bags of homemade mulch in the runs today to keep the outside birdies feet warm and comfy. We brought in 1/3 of a cord of fire wood to keep the inside birdies and the humans warm and comfy, and we built the new cage in the barn so that Big Bird can move into the barn where he can be warm and comfy for the winter. What did you do to ensure a warm and comfy winter so far?

The most amazing dinner tonight. The Bald Eagle did 2 whole backstraps on the grill. I tried a new technique and it was a huge success, I will post it later with specifics. I used my left over lasagna noodles from the pierogi lasagna and rolled ham and fresh mozzarella inside them and layered a pan with them, then covered them with the left over Green Tomato Salsa Verda. We will HAVE to do that again.

We have been discussing what kind of description to put with the recipe for Rooster Hooch (the beverage) when we upload it. So far we have come up with this, in true vintner descriptive style… Rooster Hooch is a tempting wine whose rawness draws you unsympathetically into its downward spiral. With a pinkish opalescent color reminiscent of separated milk solids, it is malodorous profusion of aromas of peach and strawberry such as might be found once lost under the seat of a fine automobile. Its high alcohol makes it full and generous in the mouth and it overwhelms the palate with intense flavors of paint thinner mixed with battery acid, prolonging your pleasure with its characteristic bitter finish of milk of amnesia. Waffle was getting her groove on while we watched Dancing with the Stars.

My rooster that we found passed out drunk on the bathroom floor earlier this week… his given name is Louis, but we refer to him as Booger because he can be quite the little booger head. Due to his recent adventure in inebriation, we now have a saying in our house in regards to people to over imbibe. “he wasn’t just drunk, he was Booger drunk”.

My boy met me in the doorway to the great room this morning (where he is barricaded in so he can’t get into trouble). He’s crowing so I guess he’s past his monster hangover.
