    A couple of pics from around town and how it looks here. Health department begging people to stay inside....the fires from all around California tend to settle in the valley which is where we are at. Local news aside now... I wanna talk about struggle meals. Struggle meals are those ones that when you're getting real tight on food, you still manage to crank out something filling and that tastes amazing. This is one of my family's favorite struggle meals. Were not struggling really right now, but making food stretch further, especially given the rising costs in meats right now ( don't even want to talk about the $10.99 roasts I saw at the store....😠) This is a chili cheese Mac that I add black beans too for added protein and filling up power. For a decent amount of food ( somewhere around 10 good size servings): 1 lb pasta of your choosing, I used mini penne 1 lb ground beef 2 cups shredded cheese ( if you don't have that much, put what ya can, it will still be good) 2 cans of black beans ( or any bean really but black, kidney, or pinto would work best) drained and rinsed. 2 tbsp chili powder 2 tsp cumin 2 tsp salt (or more to taste) 2 tsp pepper (or more) 2 tsp garlic powder 2 tsp onion powder 1 onion chopped small ( really small) a couple tomatoes diced up small 4 cups beef stock So in a large stock pot, brown up your ground beef and onion. Add your stock, tomatoes and pasta. Turn heat on high and bring to a boil, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes ( until pasta is done) add your seasonings, cheese and beans. Stir really well and serve. My kids like it topped with sour cream and green onions from the garden. This cost me a smidge less than $10 to make total and serves 10. I do have my own green onions and tomatoes so those aren't factored in but even still, I think $10 for 10 people is a good deal. #homestead #homesteadinglife #strugglemeal #recipe #food #garden #homemade #homesteading #chilimac #pasta #fillingmeals #cheapmeals #gardening #homemade https://www.instagram.com/p/CUOSUB4gi1f/?utm_medium=tumblr

    Gonna be sourdough bread time soon. Get those starter cultures ready! Remember to name it for good luck.

    To make your own: https://diypagan.com/2019/11/20/the-magic-of-bread-and-leavening/

    It's a great way to connect to nature in your own kitchen, and there are many sourdough recipes out there, like classic bread and pizza dough or noodles and sweet muffins.

    I'm sure I will post recipes as I make them!

    Player Home: Tolva’s Hearth 

    Home is where the hearth is. Be it cozy cottage, grand keep, or meager roadside fire, kindness and magnanimity will always stand against the cold and lonely dark. 

    Setup: With their current adventure coming to a close, the harvest brought in, and snow looming on the horizon, it’s time for the party to start thinking about where they’re going to hunker down for winter. No sense trying to delve ruins high up in the mountains and risk getting buried under an avalanche, the treasure and monsters will be there come the spring thaw. 

    Why not let them get used to their new home base during a restful bout of  cabining, letting them warm their feet, prepare for future festivities in the village, maybe get involved in a snowball fight or two? For whatever their need, Tolva’s hearth is there to provide, built with sturdy walls to keep out the drafts and deep cellars to ensure they’re well provisioned through the darkest months. 

    Adventure Hooks

    Why was such a quaint little cottage left abandoned for the players to buy/inherit/be rewarded with? Well, it might have something to do with the fact that the valley that the home and it’s associated buildings occupies happens to be within the territory of a particularly vicious dragon by the name of Ryngale, who scared off the previous inhabitants after devouring most of their livestock. Like most adolescent dragons, Ryngale spends whole months or years hibernating, awakening to raid and gorge itself for weeks on end. Just after the players have settled into their home, Ryngale ends up being awoken by a group of local hunters and terrorizes the surrounding forest and settlements desperate to find something to feed on in the lean winter months. 

    There’s a door in Tolva’s hearth that just won’t stay closed, as each morning the party finds that no matter how securely they barred it, it’s always furled open, letting snow, bone-chilling wind, and once a very daring wolverine into their home. The culprit of this constant disruption is a housefey by the name of Skelter, who took up residence in the hearth after it was abandoned. Skelter is mousey and shy, and is so conflict adverse that he’d rather try and drive the party out by being a nuisance then actually introduce himself to his new housemates. 

    While moving themselves in to their mostly furnished new domicile, the party finds an old, weathered table in one of the basements. Long enough for an entire family to sit at, it appears to have been carved with what can only be a treasure map leading up into the mountains. Surely they can wait for the passes to clear and the soul-stealing blizards to die down before they set off in search of buried riches, right?......Right?

    If you’d like to use Tolva’s Hearth as a break between major campaign arcs, consider running a small number of oneshots framed around the idea of the party and their winter visitors telling stories around the hearth, allowing you to dial in on different aspects of worldbuilding. These stories can be anything form personal flashbacks to fantastical fables to local legends, perhaps even allowing other players to run for short adventures of their own. 

    Features & Upgrades: 

    Players who explore the grounds around Tolva’s hearth will find a number of charms and bells hung between the trees, providing an already festive charm to their new home.  These trinkets are however part of a now deteriorated ward that covers the entire property. If the fallen sections of trinkets are salvaged from the dirt under the snow, or replaced, the whole property becomes affected by the Hallow spell, granting resistance to cold, immunity to fear, and lessening inclement weather that falls upon the area. 

    The valley around Tolva’s hearth is famed for it’s hunting, providing bountiful meat and furs throughout the year. Or At least, it’s supposed to. Unsurprisingly having a dragon use the area as it’s personal buffet every other year has affected the local wildlife. Slaying Ryngale will have the area flourishing in no time, and may even lead the party into some more fantastical hunts later on

    Investigating a derelict (seemingly haunted) building deep in the woods reveals a generations old attempt to set up a sugarshack, a processing house for  making delicious sugar and syrup from the numerous maple trees that fill the valley. Fetching the right materials and hiring workers could take some time, but it could lead the party into a lucrative side gig and a lifetime supply of pancake toppers.

    Three coyotes in a pasture off Homestead Road

    Three coyotes in a pasture off Homestead Road

    Three coyotes in a pasture off Homestead Road. One young male. One female. And One alpha male. This was between the golf course and the Moose Lodge. (Keep your pets on a leash when outdoors)
