Served with creamy potato and vegetable bake from our home grown potatoes and Daisy's fresh cream, and some kale and cabbage from the garden lightly fried in home made butter.
The total cost of this meal for four was less than $2. Nothing came out of a jar or packet and most of the ingredients were grown in our garden or made here in the kitchen from scratch.
No electricity or gas was used, the wood for the fire was gathered at no cost.
All it took was human energy, motivation and time. Lots of time. But during that time, we did other things as well. We traveled, worked, enjoyed each others company and the company of friends, mended fences, planted trees, grew a garden and lived life.
You see, this meal started being made four months ago.
The hen chicks (pullets) have just started laying eggs and the roosters have just started finding their voices at 4am each morning.
It's time for processing and into the freezer.
