Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

A Garden Supper! MMMM!

Tonight we had fresh green beans bought at our local farmer's market that I sell my candles at.
I cooked 1 1/2 pounds of them in a large can of Sawnson's chicken broth- added onions, potatoes, and Hillshire Farms smoked sausage cut into bite size pieces- I think the sausage flavors the beans better than bacon.
Served it with corn muffins and now we are feasting on fresh cherry cobbler. I even pitted and cooked the cherries.
I have felt so domestic tonight- not to mention the fact that I had a great home cooked meal!
All of my grandmas would be proud!
