Default Just had to share

As I was making dinner last night, I had a realization that made me proud to a man.

I was cooking some venison tenderloin from a doe that I harvested this weekend along with some veggies from the garden drinking a homebrew.

I realized that not one item was store brought and that I had made/harvested everything myself. It just made me proud that I was able to supplement everything myself during the age where it is so much easier to go through a drive through or purchase items at a store, me being as guitly as the next guy.

Just thought I share my proud moment.....

Way to go man!!! I love it when we do that. Middle of the summer its not uncommon for us to have a similar meal, and even more common for us to have a a meal completely locally grown with Farmer's Market local produced veggies and meats...
Its good to eat local!

Homebrewing has gotten more into this stuff. If I use any fruit, honey or anything in my beer I'm running to the local produce market on Saturdays to pick it up.

I am debating on harvesting wild yeast too, just for amusement.

Nothing like living like our forefathers I agree that there is just something about making "it" ourselves.

In my defense, it was Ed Worts Haus Ale.....and nowhere does he say to use home grown hops and home grown malted barley in his recipe....there I said it.

Sorry Ed to bring you into this but I'm fighting a losing battle
