Join us as I unpack the quarter cow we just recently bought. The best part about buying local food is plain and simple, just getting really good meat! In this post I go into all the details about the benefits of buying local, how you can find the best meat near you, and what our quarter cow unload looked like. Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse![Read more…] about Quarter Cow Unload
The perfect pot roast falls off the bone, is juicy and tender, and melts in your mouth. We love roasts here at the homestead. There is something so satisfying about putting your meat, veggies, and bone broth in one pot and letting it sit for several hours while you work or do other errands. And then coming back to a delicious meal. It’s almost like you did no work at all! This perfect pot roast recipe has everything you need to get that fall-off-the-bone, tender juicy meat for you and your family.[Read more…] about Perfect Pot Roast
There is always that one night per week that I want to put something really easy in the oven so that I can walk away, come back and it’ll be ready to eat. That meal for us is this roasted chicken dinner. I actually look forward to the day each week that I get to make this roasted chicken. The only reason I think that we don’t make it more often is just so that we don’t get tired of it. I would totally make this every day if I could! Over the years I’ve gone from making just a simple roasted chicken to making a whole chicken dinner in the same pan. I’m sure you and your family will enjoy this roasted chicken recipe for years to come.
What makes this so good:
First, I love that this recipe is a full dinner on it’s own. We just chop up a salad real quick and serve with salad most nights. But even without a side salad, this dish contains protein, grain, and vegetables, so it’s complete on its own. Talk about a “one pot meal”! It’s hard to make a complete meal in one pot but this one does the trick.[Read more…] about Roasted Chicken Dinner
