Pioneer Woman Cooks

Since we are just sitting around this morning suffering from fairly serious tryptophan hangovers, I thought I would pass along this recipe. M'Lady and I tried it for the first time at yesterdays feast and it met with a considerable number of "Ooohs and Ahhhhs". We substituted butternut squash for the sweet potatoes since we still have quite a few left from the garden and it came out great.

You might also want to check out Pioneer Woman's blog - good recipes, wonderful photography and a great "how this all came to be" story to boot.

Hello again country squire, I've just read through some more of your bloggs. It's uncanny that your wife also enjoys some of the same interests as mine too. I also saw the photos of your freinds. it looks as though you live on a ranch. Is a ranch just the same as we call a farm over here. I used to live on a farm when I was younger, we even had a brook running through it, so brook trout were often on the menu, atleast until I almost completely cleared our river of the bigger ones and had to walk further to go and catch them. I used to camp out with my neighbour's grandsons, when we would catch trout and eat them for breakfast and dinner then tea. The land that we roamed was free and wild, you wouldn't see any other people for days, much the same as I'd imagine Ohio to be like, although not so sandy. If I could figure out how to post pics on here I'd gladly show you what it looks like where I fish but I'm afraid i'm not that experienced on a pc. I'll only mess up the post if I try to post one, so I'll leave it for the time being. My daughter is a mad keen horse rider and when she saw your photos she asked if there were any ranches in this country. What it is to be young and have your imgination influenced only by books and TV!

Anyway, I'm afraid that I can't concentrate on what it is I'm typing, because the kids are playing havoc and I'm supposed to be watching them. The eldest is 11, the youngest is 8, so they are a bit of a handful. I'll speak to you soon. Matt.

Sorry for the confusion. I do not use real names on my blog and after re-reading my post I can understand this mix-up. If you read anymore of my posts you will notice that I refer to my wife as "M'Lady", my daughter as "our young miss" and my son as "the young squire" in keeping with my tongue in cheek on-line persona.

Pioneer Woman, on the other hand, is another blogger located as you saw on a remote ranch in Texas. I found her blog at the 2007 Weblog Awards website. It also happened that I was looking for a new dish for our Thanksgiving Day dinner held last Thursday and availed myself of one of Pioneer Woman’s recipes which I linked to.

As I said, I’m sorry for the confusion.
