coconuts

We use coconuts for most of our cooking. Our oil of choice for our food storage is the 1 gallon jugs of coconut oil from Costco. Yesterday Sue made curry using our organic homegrown garlic, peppers, potatoes, carrots and Ichiban eggplant. We were busy this year and didn't grow pumpkins, but it's the first year in a long time we didn't

That sounds delicious >o< I love curry, ginger, coconut milk! One of the families I work for wanted me to cook a curry chicken dish on Tuesday. So I think I will be using this recipe ^o^ the eggplant sounds wonderful. I do a good amount of my food shopping online from vitacost . c o m and we also like to buy our grass-fed beef online <3 I would totally love to have a hobby farm. I've always wanted my own goats and chickens. I love goat milk soaps and fresh eggs right out of the coop LOL
