Pioneer Woman

What is so pioneer about her? Have you seen her kitchen?? Her RANCH?

I have a friend who lives completely off the grid in Wyoming. They make their own electricity, grow everything they eat..and can tons of it for winter. She cooks from a real wood stove and the only heat in her grandparents homestead is wood heat. They raise and slaughter their own lambs, chickens, and pigs... and they hunt. They barter for beef and bison. They have their own eggs, they have sheep that they sheer and she actually spins the wool! They have Molly the cow who just had a baby and Marcia also has goats...and shemakes her own cheese, butter, cottage cheese, sour cream, yogurt, kefir...etc... They use a composting toilet for chrissakes! She barters her goats milk etc. for goat lotion and soap!

They work their butts off but they love it. Going out in July to spend some time.

I would watch a show like that...wouldn't you? Too classy for Food Network. Have to be PBS.
