Karina Jones is a real-life ranch wife in the Nebraska Sandhills and one of the most highly sought-after speakers in the cattle industry nationwide!
It’s a fact, we are going to have some spooky fun on this Friday edition of Ranch Raised!
Halloween is creeping right up on me! I am so thankful to see lots of celebrations and family fun opportunities taking place in lots of little towns close by. But, this weekend’s weather isn’t going to be great in my neck of the woods. We may opt to stay warm and create memories in our own home. So, I have a special spooky recipe I wanted to share with you to enjoy over the weekend.
Despite living out on the range, I still like to break out some surprises for our kids to make holidays special. I’ve got a fun Halloween inspired drink for the whole family! I plan on making my kids some Hocus Pocus punch this weekend! I’m giving you this recipe today so you can swing by the store and grab the ingredients. It’s simple. Just some ice cream and pop.
You choose….orange Sherbert or vanilla ice cream. Put it in a glass and top with orange soda or a lemon lime soda! Easy Peasy, Hocus Pocus Punch!
I totally recommend whipping up your favorite soup this weekend, popping some popcorn, pouring some Hocus Pocus punch and sitting around with your family playing games or watching a movie if you don’t have other festivities to attend! With the help of a local cookie baker, we have some Halloween cookies to decorate too. Sometimes simple, laid-back weekends at home end up being the best medicine and memories!
If you want to post pictures of your kids dressing up for Halloween on the Ranch Raised FB page, I would love to see them!
Karina ranches with her husband, Marty, and 4 children near Broken Bow, NE. She grew up in western NE, with roots also in southwest SD. The cattle industry and raising kids is her passion.
Watching the cattle industry go the path that it has gone, she could no longer sit quietly at home checking cows, fixing fence, and doing all the everyday tasks wondering when some else was going to make it all better. As she became more active and outspoken on industry issues, she was asked to join the R-CALF USA staff in September 2020 as the Checkoff Petition Campaign manager. That position transcended into her current role as full time Field Director for R-CALF USA.
You can hear her almost every Friday on Your Ag Network’s Hot Barn Report, where she deep dives into cattle industry issues and industry reforms. Listen to Ranch Raised on a Your Ag Network hometown station or www.youragnetwork.com where she talks about her daily life on the Jones Ranch.
