I had an assignment in Catlett the other week and decided to stop by Wilson Farms.  This company has been around for 50 some years and I have shopped there before.  I was looking for meat that I haven't had in a long time and had just about forgotten about this place.  Their meats are non antibiotic/growth hormone and grass fed.

I came home with turkey necks, turkey gizzards, ground pork, ground beef and a couple of steaks.  





Yummy turkey necks and sweet potatoes.  The meat was to die for. :)  So tender, it melted in my mouth.


This was a visitor in front of the house a couple of weeks ago.  There must have been some road kill in our neighborhood.


This bird was huge and almost flew into our kitchen window.


Nothing much new around here.  It's been raining since last night and is supposed to continue all day.  I have a couple of assignments to take care of and am still debating on whether to wait until tomorrow because of the rain.  If it lightens up a bit, I'll do them today, since they are local.

I'll be glad when the new year comes in.  This is always a depressing time of the year for me and I can't wait until it's over.  I  keep thinking of how different my life would have been if I had made different choices, I have many regrets.  I am not happy right now and I can't figure out how to make the changes to get me to that "happy" place.

My co-worker just let me know that she won't be in today.  So off to Millers I go.

  1. okay - YOU - you better tell me right now how to get those turkey necks cooked like that?!?!?!?!? i always burn them or undercook them and jambaloney loves turkey necks!!! i must have the recipe!!!

    allrighty - on to this being a depressing time of year. but first off - glad that you put up a new post - i have been checking and checking and wondering if you are ok!!!

    but anyway...these are the absolute longest days without sunlight for the next 2 weeks...hence it being a depressing time of year for everyone. and you know what? hindsight is 20-20...and all of us would make different choices if we could go back and do it all over again. stop the regrets - you can't change the past. oh but the future is so bright we gotta wear shades!

    the new year is coming...and that means another year to make mistakes, good and bad choices, and learn from it all at the end of the year!

    hey don't you owe me an email?!?!

    your friend,

  2. Kymber...turkey necks are easy..season them up add onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, cover them up and bake them until they fall apart at 350 degrees. After an hour keep an eye on them.

    Yes, I know about winter and depression, regrets etc. I'm trying to get out of my funk and not slide back into old bad habits. ...So I'm crocheting a blanked. Photos coming soon...maybe tomorrow. LOL....in three weeks I'll be back to my normal self.

    Email? I believe I sent you the last one in October. Did you not get it? I know you did not answer.

    Time for tea and catching up on blogs. :)
    Hugs to you and Jamie.

I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
