Spareribs....there will be none to spare! :)
Spareribs of course
B-B-Q sauce (I make my own and some day I will share the recipe with you)
Put the ribs in a big kettle of boiling water. I like to do this for several reasons. One, it really makes the meat tender and two, I think it gets rid of some of the fat. I don't like really rich meat. Boil the meat for about 30 minutes. Take out the ribs and place them on a cooking sheet covered with tinfoil. (less cleanup that way)

Patchwork Rice-A farmhouse side dish!
3 Tablespoons canola
4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms, drain it
Approximately 2-3 cups of assorted vegetables. Today I am using carrots, celery.
12 oz long grain and wild rice
4 cups beef or chicken broth
First off chop your veggies.
Pour your canola oil in a large saucepan and then saute onion until it is translucent. Add mushrooms and other veggies, saute until tender. Add rice and stir in broth, grind a little pepper in also. Stir well. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat. Simmer until broth is absorbed, 20-25 minutes.
Patchwork Rice....that's what's for supper in Farmchick's kitchen tonight! Enjoy. On Friday I will post the ribs I made to go with the rice. Come back and visit me soon! I love comments so please do!!

A very simple fruit salad!
If you want something quick and healthy that your kids will eat....try this! You can use any fruit you like but the listed ingredients are what I used today. All you need:
1 large can fruit cocktail (sugar free or light syrup)
1 large can mandarin oranges
2 apples (one red one green)
1 - 6 oz. Peach Yoplait light yogurt (use whatever flavor you have on hand)
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
1 packet splenda if you want it sweeter
All you do is open all the cans, slice the apples and bananas and dump into a bowl. Pour the yogurt and lemon juice on top and gently toss with the fruit. You're done and your family will enjoy it and it's good for them too! If you want to make it for a special ocassion you can add toasted coconut and some small marshmellows. That will make it more fun but not as healthy! Either way...it's great! Fruit salad....yumy, yummy!
Until next time--

Chicken Drumsticks or should I say YUMsticks!
Today these YUMsticks can be catorgorized under FOODS KIDS LOVE. Our little farmers LOVE drumsticks. They are simple to make and are tasty too! All you need:
1/3 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp. cracker pepper
8 chicken drumsticks
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray a baking sheet.
In a shallow dish or pie plate, mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and pepper. Using a pastry brush, carefully coat each drumstick with the plain yogurt.
Roll each one in the bread crumb mixture until it is evenly coated. Arrange the drumsticks on the prepared sheet and bake for about sixty minutes or until the juices run clear when the meat is pierced with a fork.
That's it folks! Your kids big and small will love them. They are great cold too and fit perfectly in your kids lunch box. That's what's for supper in Farmchick's kitchen tonight!
