This And That Thursday -17

A little bit of this and a little bit of that - here's what we've been up to.

As the snowy, frigid month of February draws to a close (thank goodness) sadly, so does our month as the featured photo on the Midwest Dairy Face Book page. This family photo was taken on the day Minnesota Viking Toby Gerhart visited Bremer Farms. Wow! Great photography! You can't even tell our teeth were chattering!

I returned home late last night from Kansas City where I attended the Midwest Dairy Dairy Ambassador Workshop. This was my third year of soaking up the enthusiasm, friendliness, and knowledge of my fellow dairy advocates. I'll be posting more about this wonderful experience in the next few days. Stay tuned...

Spicy Cauliflower Soup
One of the many perks of going to a dairy workshop, is meeting passionate dairy supporters like Amber Pankonin, Registered Dietitian, who writes a tasty blog, Stirlist . I can't wait to try her Kick It Up A Notch Spicy Cauliflower Soup filled with the dairy goodness of milk, cheese and greek yogurt, too!

What's a farm without a cat...or two ...or ten? One of our favorites is Cookie. Well, Cookie seems to be just as tired of winter as we all are. She is getting very sneaky about silently tiptoeing into our toasty, warm house when Sara returns from doing her evening calf-feeding chores.

And lastly,
Real Women Milk Cows. Heck yeah! 

I love my new shirt!


  1. It was great meeting you Janet! Good luck with the recipe!

  2. Great meeting you too Amber. I am a super fan of soup, so I'm always looking for new recipes! Thanks for sharing this one with me and my readers.

  3. That's a great photo of your family on MDA's FB page!

  4. Thanks Adriane. That was such a fun day sharing our love of farming with Viking Toby Gerhart. We have many great photos to remember the day!
