Had to run some errands today...the wee munchkin tagged along.
Spot the stowaway?

McTeacher night shenanigans. The kids just love having their teachers working behind the counter.

Xander's new fish tank. He loves his relaxing nightlight.

Starting out with 5 Guppies to get the tank cycle started.

We try to use all we can when we process our livestock. We even used WildStyle's fat. Our first time rendering pig lard super easy...and way better than Crisco.
Step 1: Cut the fat into small pieces. Trim away any pieces of meat or blood as you go. ...
Step 2: Place fat in slow cooker. Add 1/4 cup of water to the slow cooker to prevent the fat from burning – it will evaporate during the rendering process. ...we set it to cook on low for about 8 hours.
Step 3: Strain Lard, using cheese cloth and a colander, into jars. Cool then refrigerate.
