Hey ya’ll! I’m FarmHer Caitlin. 🙂

I LOVE my farm, I LOVE my animals, I LOVE my family, and I LOVE my crazy, exhausting, chaotic life! God has asked me to fight some difficult battles as a young adult, but I believe with all of my heart that He’s been leading me (and sometimes dragging me) into my divine purpose. Follow along as I attempt to homestead my way into an OLD FASHIONED kind of life.

Thank you for sharing in my fun!

Venison & Sauerkraut Soup

When your husband comes home offering to fix dinner, you graciously accept the offer.

You don’t question motive.

You don’t ask questions.

You say “Thank you”.

Last week, while suffering from the flu, Zach offered to make soup for dinner. He’s so good to me! But that isn’t what I was thinking when I walked through the kitchen and noticed the ingredients he had chosen: deer tenderloin, sauerkraut, 1 onion, and a bottle of whiskey. What kind of soup could this man possibly be making? I took a hot shower, dreading the meal to come. He served me dinner in the recliner and much to my surprise, it smelled delicious! And sure enough, there was sauerkraut in the broth. Who ever thought sauerkraut in soup was a good idea? Not me. Maintaining a straight face, I ate a spoonful. BEST DEER MEAT SOUP EVER! It’s like French Onion Soup with a tang and venison! YUM!
