Tuesday Dose of Cute: Lunch on the Go

Chickens having lunch on the go - FarmgirlFare.com

Because we live so far from everything (10 miles to the post office to get our mail, 17 miles to an itty bitty library, 40 miles to a big supermarket, 90 miles to Lowe's), unless it's an emergency, we never leave the farm for just one thing.

During today's seven hour outing we made 11 stops, which was actually on the low side (and we only forgot three four things!). We never travel without snacks, sandwiches, jugs of water, and emergency miniature candy bars.

The chickens, on the other hand (foot?), just have to look down and peck for their lunch—though of course they also never have to leave the farm. Lucky clucks.

  1. Wow, you guys do live out in the sticks! We are 10 miles from our small town and 40 miles from a good-sized one. I'm with the chickens, I'd just as soon stay home! ;-)

  2. I know what you mean about traveling.....Once I get to my city the stops and errands are exhausting! It's so nice to get back home. I'll have to try bringing along some chocolate for the ride. That'll make things flow better. Love the blog.....

  3. My grandparents' use to live in an area like that, where they had to drive far to get anywhere. My husband, not being used to it, had a hard time getting the fact that we couldn't just pop into a McD's on the way there. We did eventually find a Subway, probably the only fastfood for miles. :) I love the picture of your chickens. We can't own any where we live. Hoping one day to move to an area where we can.



December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
