Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Shabbat Menu 8/7

We will be away from home this Shabbat, visiting my father in OK. He has insisted that we must only pack travel food... so, with the exception of some milk and granola I will bring (to use up the raw milk) - this menu is going to be a travel food menu.

Our trip is about 10 hours each way and we try not to stop for "convenience food" along the way. My DH is a perpetual snacker on long trips..he says it helps him stay alert. This rustling in the cooler alerts the rest of the tribe of goodies and well...we eat more when we take long trips than we would on any given day! If I don't meet this need with supply, DH will be "driven thru" somewhere as soon as I nod off. :-) Because we eat so differently than the typical SAD diet...I have been accustomed to bringing the fridge for over 10 years...but now the 8 of is...it really seems like I AM a grocery store on wheels! :-) Besides I by "over packing" it helps with snacks at Grandpa's. I was going to try some new things...but decided to just fall back on the old stand by's and only experiment with one thing that has been on my to-do list "Laura bars". (They turned out wonderfully!)

Travel Food
Whole Grain Banana Muffins
Seasoned Popcorn
Homemade Crackers
Baby Carrots
Ants on a Log
Dried Peaches
Dried Bananas
Baba Ganush
Assorted Cheeses
Whatever fresh fruits we have on hand
Raw Bars(Like Laura bars)
Peanutbutter Pretzels
Raw Almonds

Ginger Tea
Caffeinated Tea w/ Herbs
Water Bottles (normally we refill our stainless water bottles from the home filter, but dad doesn't have a filter, so we will buy a case of bottle water and likely be buying it on the way home.)
I might make a jar of ice coffee

Baby Food (he is still nursing full time - but we are introducing foods, he is 7 months old)
Some pre-made frozen baby food cubes
Avocado, and banana
Chamomile tea and a sippy cup (He is cutting his second tooth)
Hylands Homeopathic teething gel (is this TMI?)

We will take a gallon of Raw milk and Granola
Whatever Veggies need to be used up

For Erev Dinner, we may splurge and stop somewhere before the sun goes down. It depends on our "time" and the kids. Otherwise, we'll just munch out of the cooler.

We always make sure our Ipod is well loaded with teachings and music. We also like to listen to your Story Hours and audio books. We pack a small basket of things for the kids to do. We pack minimal clothes. Summer travel is nice because you don't have worry about the extra layers the colder months require.

This will help me figure out what type of things to bring when we travel in Sept.

May your Sabbath be filled with joy and given travel mercies....

I'm going to make some Laura bars too. I just got a big package of date paste. Guess we both got the idea from the same friend :) Did you get your farm truck?
