Free Kindles for British Lit (Part 1 of 2)

What's Cookin'?

When we've been out of beef for a while I start craving it - big time.  Then, when we get some I want it for every meal for a few days!  Grass-fed (and finished!) beef with no antibiotics, no hormones, fed with home-grown never-sprayed hay during drought or winter is amazing.  It is such a blessing to our family to be able to get it at close to grocery store prices for conventional meat.  It's not always available but it is worth any dry spells to have access to it.

That said, I got some this week - I just got ground beef this time.  Our first dinner with it was chili.  Usually I only use 1/3 to 1/2 pound to stretch out our meat but I put in the whole pound and ate 2 hunkin' bowls (I've been out of my methyl guard and adrenal meds both of which have B vitamins so I must've really needed some!).  This morning before it gets too hot I plan on making a meatloaf and some ground meat/apple burger patties to freeze for later.  Now I'm starting to crave chicken... :)

It's Farmer's Market Season!

For me, that means it's time to stock up and preserve whatever I'm able to within my constraints.  Each time I go I try to freeze or dehydrate some of what I buy.  So far I have bags of onion and bell pepper in the freezer and hope to do more.  Mangoes were on sale 2 for $1 so I got 8 to peel and slice for smoothies and they are also in the freezer.  Hopefully I'll have a garden again next year but I'm holding that loosely since we have bigger fish to fry right now (Remember that gift horse I mentioned?  It was a gift but now we have to feed it!)

What's Schoolin'?

This is totally consistent with my project-obsessive personality.  I won't let British Literature go until I have it completely ready to go on autopilot (unless I stop one-step short and never finish it - I tend to do that too which is why I'm determined to finish it now).  So, here you have another British Lit post and probably 2 more.  I'm going through my last post and trying to find free downloads of those books.  Then I'll go through the book list I'm finishing and look for free downloads for those books also.  Most should be public domain so let's see how it goes... [The fonts are weird because I did some cutting and pasting from my compiled booklist.]
