Little House on the Prairie

It was a very Little House kind of weekend for us. Besides milking our cows and building a sod house with our bare hands, we did the following:


Admired the prairie flowers:








Tended to our crops:








Harvested just enough to sustain us through the threshing of the wheat:





And hunted wild game:



The pineapple, it is a wiley species. This one put up a good fight but was eventually wrestled from his hiding place and put down quickly and humanely with an extra-sharp Henckels knife.




The pineapple was grilled with red peppers and thick slices of onion and eaten ravenously by candlelight.

It was delicious.
