Freezer/Pantry Stash

I have been getting creative with my freezer and pantry stash.  I am trying to rotate out, so I am prepared for the new garden stash to go back in.

I made another new breakfast recipe - Blueberry Baked Oatmeal (Cookie and Kate online).  I followed the recipe completely, other than adding a bit more blueberries.  I am going to need to re-stock my organic oats soon though.  

I'm looking into making herbal packets to sell for facial steams.  Has anyone done one?  There are so many recipes for different skin types.

I haven't heard back from the General Store on selling an item.  Hopefully today I will.  I sent another email in case it got missed for some reason.

A few deer came to see us the other night.  They were scrambling to find grass and found it just outside our house.  Look at all those mole mounds!!!  Sigh....haven't had those in years.  Guess I'll have to take care of those before the garden gets planted.

Thank you for pointing me to that Baked Oatmeal recipe!

And for seeing that I find that recipe blog!

You definitely want to get rid of the moles before you plant your garden or you won't have one.

The oatmeal looks good with the blueberries. So nice to see the deer, is it usual for them to come so close to the house?

Cockeyed Jo, I stuffed chewing gum in the holes many years ago and got rid fo the moles, but darn it, they are back.

mamasmercantile, it is very unusual to see deer that close to the house. We rarely see them crossing through a neighboring field.
