    This morning I went out and caught, cleaned, carved and cooked a rooster. Then I picked, peeled and baked an apple pie. I did a lot of clean up too of course. We ate good tonight.[​IMG]
    My husband came home and he and our son went and picked black berries that I will make into jam tomorrow. [​IMG]
    What a real farmer I am turning into! [​IMG]

    Edit: I should have said that we, too, had chicken. But it was no one I knew! [​IMG]

    It is back to school day for my DD and she requested a special supper - something I have always done - first day of school and we have a celebration supper. She chose seafood, salad and roasted potatoes. Tonight will be crablegs, fried shrimp, a rich spinach salad and sugar/salt roasted potatoes. And dessert - still trying to figure out what.

    Back to school dinner sounds like a great idea!
    My son will be starting school for the first time next week. He does NOT want to go. I can't imagine why? [​IMG]
    Anyway, I have told him how much fun school will be and he just wants to stay home with me and the animals. So I think I will let him pick out a dinner for after school for him too![​IMG]

    I have been the same way for years. I decided if we ever needed to be self-sufficient, I needed to be able to do in the poultry around here. It has been a learning and rewarding experience and I am glad I finally got the guts to do it. My birds and happy and healthy when I do them, so I have no guilt about using them for what they were intended for. We raise chickens and love chickens, but what to do with all the "Extra" roos? Sell them or give them away to someone else who will eat them, or eat them our self. We choose to eat them ourselves. [​IMG]

    That is exactly why I don't name my chickens....it's a lot easier to cook and eat them if you don't know their names.​
