It’s nearly holiday cooking season and if you read Jodene Shaw’s feature on the Women in Agriculture series, you know I am sharing my favorite Lodge Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens with two fabulous folks this weekend. Not the actual ones in my kitchen that I cook with just about daily. New in the box, just for you, purchased by me from our family owned lumberyard. There’s a 6 quart red one and a 7.5 quart blue one. The enamel coating cooks and cleans beautifully. Both are BIG and ready to host a family gathering or two or fifty. Or if you win and aren’t a cast-iron cook in the kitchen, you have yourself a fantastic gift to share! Enter below with multiple entry options.
Comment below with an answer to “What is your center of your life?” No wrong answers. My faith and family is the center of my life on the North Dakota prairie. Cooking for them and eating together is a big part of our conversation time together. And let’s be honest? Laundry is also at the center of my life.
Enjoy! I’ll announce winners early Monday morning on my Facebook page.
Working on finding my center.. but as I move through more seasons in life, I get closer to realizing what it is that drives me and guides me!

The center of my life is my family, friends, and livestock. With out the combination of the three life wouldn’t be complete. Weather having a bad or good day they all support you everyday. Another important thing is cooking I love cooking and making new family memories around food.

My family- although the center is getting bigger as kids move out and marry. The changes are bittersweet but I love seeing them grow up into great people
Our family and raising our kids to be respectful, kind, caring, honest and to love Jesus. And since it’s that time of year, it’s a good thing hockey provides many teachable moments to help us with this 🙂
It seems to a constant change of motion, but definitely my family is the focal point. Along with supporting all that we are involved in that is all associated with agriculture in our rural area along with at a national level.

Family is the center to my life,, they are there to share in all the goodness that God has given us,, as well as those times of sadness, as we share our memories of those that are no longer with us.. We work together, play together,, and are there for each other. As we sit around our table the words flow freely, and we all get a glimps of each others lives..
Farming as a family!

The centre of my life? Food. When I’m prepping three healthy, hearty meals a day for my family it means my schedule is in check (I’m not working too much and serving them frozen pizza three times a week!) and my priorities are in balance. If my family’s health is taken care of first, everything else seems to fall into place!!

That is all. Mwah.
