We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope.

Two pounds...

Ever since we brought him home, we have been trying desperately to put weight on our little boy. At our last checkup he had only gained 4 ounces in 6 months. So we've been working with the doctor in trying to add certain things to his diet that would help "boost" weight gain. The right kind of food...the good stuff.

Enter my Amish cookbook...

For about a month or so now, I have been cooking my way through this Amish cookbook. It is the old-fashioned kind of cooking - everything from scratch basically. Cooking where the meat slow cooks for hours in your oven and your entire house smells wonderful. Cooking where you can read and understand all the ingredients you put into your meal. Cooking where it's such a good meal that there aren't a lot of leftovers. Hmmm...yeah, that kind of cooking.

Well, today was a great day...if you are into the whole gaining weight and all. I took him in for a weight check and we are happy to report that he's gained a whopping 2 pounds since January. In my book, that is fantastic!

Hats off to the Amish...
