I spent most of my Saturday in the kitchen preparing my contributions to the meal for today's church service. The recipe for the shepherd's pie and the bread came from my new favorite magazine, Hobby Farms. Lol, I don't have a farm but when I make the move to the house I would love to raise chickens and goats and be more self-sufficient! I have so many plans for that little homestead! I hope you enjoy these recipes and hope you all have a blessed Sunday.
