When You Bake a Pastured Chicken

When you bake a pastured chicken, you are going to want some veggies to go with it.

Veggies are filling, and so you have leftover chicken meat.

Left over chicken meat is great in a summertime chicken salad.

In order to make the chicken salad, you must produce some lacto-fermented mayonnaise.

While you are making the lacto-fermented mayonnaise, you realize you have egg whites left over.

Leftover egg whites can be used in a meringue.

Meringue reminds you of your grandmother's chocolate meringue pie.

While the blender is busy making mayonnaise, you get busy stirring up some homemade pudding with your farm fresh raw milk. You make a pie crust with the lard you got from the farmer, and pop it in the oven.

When the chocolate pudding is done you determine that it is lumpy and you want to put it through the blender. In order to put it through the blender, it has to be washed.

You wash the blender, blend the pie filling, spread the meringue and pop the pie in the oven.

All this from-scratch-kitchen-work is exhausting and you need some energy. You make some chicken salad, eat it and realize you don't know what to cook for dinner.

You look in the freezer.

There sits another pastured chicken...

Oh, my goodness. This sounds as distracting and fatiguing as a day in the kitchen. And, it's summer... Chicken soup, anyone?

Move over Laura Numeroff. It's humorous, circular, mess-making stories for the SAHM by Alana Sheldahl!

What's the name of the children's book? When you give a mouse a cookie... or something like that. Most clever...
