How Ironic

Bing this was my last day at home for a while and the wife was subbing at the high school all day, I decided to try out a new BBQ meatloaf recipe. It called for two eggs and when I went to the frig, we were out of eggs.
How ironic is it that we have all these chickens and no eggs to eat.
I slipped on my boots and headed out to the chicken pens on the hopes I would come across some fresh eggs. I did find a couple of banny eggs, it's better than nothing but not enough.
Then there it was, the first big goose egg of the season and I used it in my meat loaf.      

I also got some much needed reading done. The sweet potatoes need to be planted at the end of April or first of May. All I have to do is break off a 6" shoot and trim all the leaves but the very last ones and plant the whole shoot up to the leaves. I also found out I could have just buried the whole potato in the ground but it would have taken a lot longer to grow.
We will see how this first year goes before I can say I know what I'm doing on them. 

The other project I have been putting together and pricing out is a root cellar with a living top. This project is going to have to be put on the back burner due to the build price of $3000.00
I can't justify that this year or even next so I think I am going to redesign it to be above ground storage room made either out of hay bales or sandbags.  I  have to keep it cool enough to store food in.
I am in no big hurry on it so I will have time to get it all figured out.    


  1. What? No recipe? No pictures even? You post about BBQ Meatloaf and then just leave us hanging?


  2. I've been thinking about a root cellar recently too. I'll wait for you to build yours first :)

    I'm with WWRWH - where's the picture of the meatloaf??? LOL

  3. We would like a storm/root cellar too!
