What are your Christmas and Thanksgiving traditions?
My family and I have tweaked our holiday feasts to incorporate the traditional, primitive skills that we've learned out on our wilderness homestead. For instance, we harvest our meats each fall during hunting season — and there's nothing better than wild turkey or roast moose!
This year we served our moose with carrots, basmati rice, slivered almonds, and… bacon cornbread. Yes, bacon buttermilk skillet cornbread! Now that's a tradition we love. 😉
For dessert, we enjoyed a dairy-free pumpkin pie along with vanilla goat milk ice cream — freshly churned in our antique hand-crank ice cream maker!
