First farm year full of beautiful times

Memories of our first year with family and friends on New O’Hana Farm, TN are playing a happy tune of Owl City When Can I See You Again? From Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph πŸ™‚ When can we do this again? The lyrics talk of learning to fly and leaving to explore, but wondering when we can gather together again.

To ALL 12 of our grandbabies, family, and friends! Welcome to the farm. VISIT STAY PLAY EXPLORE BUILD MEMORIES AND KNOW YOU ARE LOVED

Moving our belongings in to each room. Picking out new furniture. Painting one of our family rooms and the Green’s Lab. Clearing out the barn of the most straw bales I have ever been around. The fun of picking, buying, and raising our dogs, goats, and chickens. We have enjoyed exploring our woods and land several times during the day and night! Holidays, Birthdays, Weekends, Card Night, spent cooking and talking together, building memories with photos, sleepovers, bonfires, great food, and wonderful people!

For all our grandchildren and children, family and friends, thank you for all your hard work, love, and spending time with us! Happy Autumn!! Let’s finish this year with a lot more of the same! :)Jen

Meal Ideas

I thought it would be nice to share a few meal ideas we had during the holidays here on New O’Hana Farm.

Our first GREAT Grill! NEXGRILL The Veggies-Portobello Steaks, Banana Peppers,Zucchini, Squash, and on the side burner, Broccoli. Our first grill we had, I put a lot of kerosene on it to get the coals farther along, and lit it. I was a mess! It cinged and curled my lashes, eyebrows, and hair :)Jen
Great time with family-Our kids and my cousin, his wife,and their kids! Chicken in the new MasterBuilt Smoker. Yum! Rumaki’s,Crab Rangoon, Cranberry Hot Pepper Dip
Asparagus Gravy that goes great with our Christmas Duck!
Remove the ends before serving :)Jen
My parents used to make these donuts on holidays, or a lot of times, Just Because! I can remember walking in to the kitchen, and mom would be taking them out of the pot of oil and dad would be holding the bag full of powdered sugar. Really great memories! Not only when you smell them, but the taste takes me back to being a little girl. :)Jen
And to end this first post for Meal Ideas, I crave pumpkin during the fall. Here I found a simple recipe for Pumpkin Waffles! They smelled amazing.
