Fall officially ended on Lazy Lady Lane, Sunday. Winter commenced with a ‘flurry,’ nonstop until late Monday! God gave us a gorgeous white blanket, complete with stunning sunrises & sunsets. His mercies break forth new every morning.


SOAK ~ SPROUT ~ SOURDOUGH, WHOLE GRAINS the WHOLY LIVING WAY, was a smashing success. Linda & Debbie fed us with so much information and food for thought, we’ll be pondering and experimenting for many weeks to come. Many of our attendees are using their sourdough sample, experimenting at home on their families! If you missed it, but want the info, you have 3 options:

1.     The 115 page notebook is available for $30, a colorful book chockfull of information, step by step instructions, recipes … in many ways, a whole grain nutrition guidebook.

2.     Watch, just like you were in the audience to experience Linda Cox’s three workshop Power Points:

     o   Whole Grain Nutrition

     o   Soaking & Sprouting Grains

     o   Sourdough and Fermenting

Karen Ross recorded, edited, and compiled these three workshops on disks back in 2011. The information is still pertinent and applicable today. Plug them into your computer & start taking notes. Linda is a self taught expert on these subjects, so full of information & years of experience with her own whole grain business. You will learn so much! This would also be a great home ec program for budding bakers! Purchase the workshops individually for $15 each or purchase one disk with all three workshops for just $35.

3.     Purchase both the SSS Event notebook + the Three Workshop disk as a set for just $55!


Debbie & I are pondering a spring event during the March timeframe, focusing on ANCIENT GRAINS, a healthier choice. Plan on the annual event in March from here on out. September/October is too busy for us all!

Wheat Montana Farms no longer ‘pails’ grains for reselling. However, we carry several pail sizes, all food grade, ready for long term or short term storage. For long term, place a bay leaf or two on your grain before securing the lid. With Alaska’s cold, dry climate, grains store indefinitely, extremely well. Angela Briggs up in Big Lake is leaving Alaska & would love to sell her remaining 16 pails of Prairie Gold. She is asking $20 each, a screaming deal, 892-0010.  



My Aunt Polly introduced us to my favorite ‘Jello’ Salad. It appears at most Christmas & Thanksgiving spreads! Here is a bit healthier version, using our own Beef Gelatin, so economical & much better than the food dye, sugar laden grocery store alternative:

Aunt Polly’s Pear Jello Salad

1. Drain juice from 1 large can pears into a sauce pan. Heat with:

                   2 T Beef Gelatin              3 T sugar

2. Process in blender:       Pears                            1/2 C Cottage Cheese

                                      1/2 C mayo                     1 C frozen berries

3. Add dissolved gelatin mixture to pear mixture & blend.

4. Pour into mold & refrigerate until set.

 CRANBERRY SAUCE CAKE, very festive, easy & delicious!
In Bosch Food Processor combine:
    1 C evaporated cane juice sugar
    1 C mayo
    1 can cranberry sauce
    1/3 C orange juice
    1 T orange peel
    3 C freshly milled flour (spelt & soft white pastry)
    1 t soda
    1 t salt
    1 t orange extract

Blend until smooth. Pour into a Bundt pan or tube pan. Bake at 350 until done, according to
pan size. Tube pan takes 60 minutes Bundt pans about 45. Small bundt about 25 minutes.
Drizzle icing if desired with 1 C confectioner’s sugar (evaporated cane juice sugar processed
in the blender) and 1 -2 T of orange juice.

Last but probably, most important, VOTE ~ this is one of the most important elections of our lifetime! Please let your voice be heard.

My hubby introduced me to a wonderful website: http://rsbnetwork.com/ These young people have attended every one of President Trump’s rallies, filming & broadcasting his speeches in their entirety since he began his campaign for the presidency. It might take some effort to actually land on the website. You should see the President on the home page. If it is just words, keep searching. It is well worth finding! These folks are the real McCoy!  We viewed several of his cross country rallies last week, so inspirational!

Ok, now this is the last

The History of Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is mentioned in the Bible at least one hundred and forty times. The word praise means to appraise, appreciate, prize, consider precious and worthy of honor or thanksgiving. The Feast of Tabernacles in the Old Testament was perhaps the beginning of Thanksgiving Day. It was not for a day only, but for a whole week (Deut. 16:13-15). This apparently was preceded by another seven weeks after the beginning of harvest, probably in the fall. Throughout the Old Testament these and other occasions were arranged for thanksgiving and praise and for offering up gifts unto the Lord for His goodness. David and Solomon called special times of celebration and thanksgiving to God. The early Christians, the Apostles and their disciples were thankful to the Lord, not only on the Lord’s Day but every day. ‘In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.’ I Thess 5:18The first settlers in Plymouth celebrated Thanksgiving with the Indians, thanking God for His mercies, provision and survival! Let us pass along these remembrances to our Children, modeling thanks to God not only on Thanksgiving Day, but each and everyday, from the heart. We are so blessed to live in America, in Alaska, in a warm, comfortable home with friends & family!

In all thy ways ackowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Proverbs 3:6 - 8

 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John2
