Happy Day and thanks for joining me right here on Ranch Raised.
I have told you before, but it really can’t be overstated, I live amongst a big breakfast eating crowd, from the man of the house down to his little toddler shadow and everyone in between. I have always said that my family would eat 75% of their daily calories before 10 am if I just kept slinging sausages and flipping flap jacks.
Well, if National Pie Day wasn’t enough to make my husband’s heart sing this week, wait till I tell him that this week is National Farmhouse Breakfast week!
An initiative by the Home Grown Cereals Authority, Farmhouse Breakfast Week started in 2000 and has been recurring annually in January ever since. Farmhouse Breakfast Week has two main aims — the first is to represent farmers who cultivate and grow crops such as oats, wheat, barley, and more. Not only does this campaign bring these farmers into the spotlight, but the variety of breakfast produce grown around the country is also displayed.
I would love to hear what some of your family’s breakfast favorites are this time of year? I have one daughter who loves oatmeal before she gets on the bus. They all love sausage & bacon. Some like eggs and breakfast burritos. Everyone loves when I do sourdough pancakes or waffles with either homemade fruit syrups or real maple syrup. But the current attention getter is lemon blueberry sourdough scones that I have been making.
Leave me your ideas for a farmhouse breakfast on the Ranch Raised FB page!
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 former 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.
