Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Welcome 2014!

Mountain Man prepared a lovely European style breakfast this morning with fine cheeses, prosciutto, fresh baked French bread, fruit and mimosas...even Fluffy and Pogo had a few breakfast treats!  Yum:)  A great way to start 2014!
Then we took a walk through the mountains, enjoying the chill in the air and some ice formations along the way...
...nature's artwork.

Now I'm getting ready to make some black eyed peas, collard greens and corn bread, a tradition that promises good luck for the upcoming year (I'll share my recipes tomorrow).

Here's to 2014!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

Looks delicious and those Blackeyed Peas can't be beat. Cooked some myself. I'm sure you had a wonderful Christmas with your grandson and family and I wish you a Blessed and Happy New Year.

We did not go all the way with the peas/collard greens/corn bread, but I did make a northern bean crock pot soup with a ham bone. It was delicious. Hugs!

Sounds great dad! Happy New Year and hugs back:)
