Potato Biscuits

    Here is an easy recipe for "Potato Biscuits" some people call them "Potato Rolls" but they resemble more of a biscuit to me.  You can't taste the taters in them but the taters make them light and delicious.  Our family has these about once a week and they get eaten quickly around here.  Hope your family likes 'em as much as mine does.

Potato Biscuits

                              1/2 c. instant potato flakes                             2 tsp. sugar
                              2. T. softened margarine                                1/2 c. hot water
                              1/3 c. water                                                   2 c. Bisquick

    In a bowl, mix together the potato flakes, sugar, margarine and hot water.

Our Baby Nigerian Dwarf Goat

    We just got a new baby Nigerian Dwarf Goat.  He is about 9 weeks old and we have named him "Allen Buck Wankin" (yes, the kids helped name him, how'd you guess?).  We call him "Buck" or "Bucky".  He is just too precious.  We will be getting him a female in 2 months so in about a year, we'll be having babies of our own.  So excited for this newest adventure.  Did you know Nigerian goat milk is a very sweet milk and is one of the best for making cheeses and soap due to its high butterfat amount.  That means milk for our family, cheese, and soap.  We can also sell the babies for a profit and can butcher them for meat if we need/want to.   Anyway, here are some pictures and a short video for you to enjoy of him.

You can tell how tiny he is.  He's inside his 50 gallon barrel which is serving as his sleeping chambers for now.

Another walk through our Woods

    We got to experience another 70 degree day yesterday and took a walk around our property.  We have such great views and wanted to share the nice day with you all.

Just one of our views from our property.  That mountain/hill has lots of  hang gliders who jump from it.  It is neat to watch them soar around from our home.

Some of the woods on the property.  We have plenty of wooded areas  and have black bears , mountain lions, and deer, as well as, squirrels, opossums, rabbits, and racoons.

Our pond from a different angle.  The level is way down due to the drought.


    I love our homestead.  It is just perfect to us.  We have 3 wells, the creek that runs behind our home and a small pond.  Just to the east of our property is a large water shed with lots of good fishing in it.  We have fruit and nut trees and gardens and lots of wild life.  It is our little piece of heaven and we are very thankful for it.
