Blog Share - Local Milk

Another Wednesday and that means, time for Blog Share. This is beginning to be the highlight of my week as I look forward to introducing you to a new friend.

 My goal for these posts are to bring to you something new and perhaps different than the regular blogs you follow.

 Today we meet Beth, who comes to us from Chattanooga Tennessee with her blog, Local Milk, where she shares her new found love of raw milk and the growing food community in Chattanooga.

At first I was drawn to this blog by the title 'Local Milk', as I have been toying with the idea of switching to raw milk.  In our state of Washington, it is available for purchase and legal, unlike some other states where there are stories of 'criminal' mothers buying raw milk for their families, a sad story for another day.

Once I landed on Beth's doorstep I forgot all about the milk and was caught up in her beautiful photography and a story of her beloved grandmother's cornbread.

It's not just a recipe she shares but a visit to her childhood and the love of that special person in her young life.  Please take the time to read this post here.

Lastly, I will leave you with this mouthwatering shot of 'Buttermilk & Berry Scones' which you will find here and I might add, I will be making a batch this weekend (I'll post about).

I do hope you enjoyed our visit to Beth's place and will take a moment to stop by and say, "Hi".


Regarding my Monday blue period, I am much better now, and thank you all for your kind words of support.  The sun is out and once again I am ready for a new and wonderful day!

I did the drawing this morning for the magazine gifts and drew out........Alison's name!!  Congratulations to Alison, please send me your mailing info and I will get it right out to you.  You can stop by and visit her at  Bonnie Lassie where she shares her love of plants and a journey of creating the garden of her dreams.

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!  xo

Glad to hear you are doing better! What a surprise that you drew my name, I'm thrilled! Thanks for the link to this cool blog, and recipes. I love blueberry scones, they are a terrible weakness of mine, I would eat them all day if I could.

Hi Sherri!! So glad to hear you are felling better!! I love raw milk!! I have been drinking and eating raw dairy for over a year, and would never go back! It is so hard here with prices increases, and regulations. I look forward to moving and having my own source for milk. I highly recommend it!! Thanks for sharing, heading over to her blog. Have a beautiful and sunny day! ;) xo Heather
