We have been busy with the kid's 4-H project - PIGS! One thing we love to do this time of the year, is to spend some time with the pigs in the pen.  The pigs are getting used to  being in the new barn, and we are spoiling the pigs with some treats.  I am sure you are thinking, pigs will eat anything! They especially love pudding, jelly beans, marshmallows and marshmallow creme!

We are still dealing with cooler than normal temperatures in April, and we are keeping the pigs warm with heat lamps and a small heater in the barn.  It's time for the farmers to start field work, but because of the cooler temperatures, snow, and rain we have received the first part of April, ground temperatures are still too cold to start planting. Soil temperatures are reported in the mid-30s and we need more warm days to increase soil temps.  Soil temperatures need to be around 50 degrees for corn to germinate and soybeans need a soil temperature of 54 degrees.  If seeds lay dormant in the ground, and do not germinate, they are more susceptible to diseases and insects.

Pasta is one of my favorite dishes.  I can claim my kids on this decision.  We have pasta dishes weekly!   We normally go for the kids favorites, spaghetti, or pasta, but this is a grown-up version.  It's packed with so much flavor!

 The fire roasted tomatoes are easy to find in the isle with the other canned tomato products.  First time I had tried fire roasted tomatoes, and it bring another layer of flavor to the meal!
