Our newest farm additions

Yeah!   We got piggies.  They're not very friendly yet, but I'm sure we'll change that soon.  They're just a couple of weeks old.  Meet Bacon, Pork Chop and Link.  teehee

Bread Overload

Had to share my August picture for today.  I stayed up last night and did a bit of baking.  I had some poor planning and made some committments without knowing the dates and a few things all hit at the same time.  Luckily, you can get 4 mini loaves to each regular loaf recipe, and I have 2 Pampered Chef stoneware pans that make 4 mini loaves each.  (I love those pans!)

I love the fact that you can take one recipe and still make a variety of types of bread.  I made:
  • Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Zucchini
  • Chocolate Chip Zucchini
  • Lemon Poppyseed Zucchini
  • Banana Bread (with and without nuts)

August Contest

I said that as soon as I hit 200 fans on Facebook I would start hosting some contests, and I got my 200th fan this week.

As I posted my first August: 1 day at a time picture I began thinking about how I'd like to get to see just who my fans are and what their lives are like.  So, here's the contest:

Take pictures of your life in August!  You can do the Facebook 1 day at a time thing, or just random pictures of your life in August.  Please have them be taken during this year. To enter, either tag me, "The Brainy Farm Wife" on facebook (you'll have to like my page, first) or submit the link to your blog with the picture here, the official contest thread. 

At the end of the month, I will select a winner from the pictures entered.  Prize is to be determined, but will be something yummy!

Become a Fan of the Brainy Farm Wife on Facebook

It's photo-journal time.  Grab your camera or camera phone, and start snapping!

August - 1 day at a time

A friend of mine posted a great idea on her facebook page that I wanted to try and challenge you try as well.

Each day in August, take a picture and post it.  It can be anything!  Just title the album "August - One day at a time".

I was thinking just earlier today, how quickly it all goes by and I can't believe it's already August!  So here's a great way to reflect on each day and remember.

Here is mine for today - a relaxing Sunday Afternoon, and watching the goats graze outside my bedroom window.

You can keep up with each picture via my Facebook Album throughout the month.
