People think it is new agey to talk about the healing power of music. People are wrong.

So today, we talk about the healing power of music.

Today I have a great interview with Jami Saunders from the Culinary Arts Center in Columbia, Tennessee. But Jami is much more than a savvy promoter of local businesses. She is a Mom of SEVEN who homeschools and is popping with new ideas. YOU guys are going to LOVE this interview!

Bio
Jami Saunders is not originally from Columbia, TN, but she has made it her home. Originally from Atwood, IL, she moved her family here in 2010 and established herself in the homeschooling community as a leader while teaching health, science, entrepreneurial economics, and more.


Jami was previously known for her award-winning photography and her involvement in raising service dogs for the handicapped for Canine Companions for Independence.
In 2017 the needs of the community and her love of bringing education on nutrition inspired her to create what is now the Culinary Arts Center in Columbia, TN. Most days you will find her hosting an event for the community; serving as vice president for the Muletowner (an initiative by Grow Columbia that promotes Columbia, TN and its businesses by acting as a practical everyday resource for residents and visitors); hosting a local radio; and serving as a proud Rotarian.


This mother of 7 beautiful children still finds the time and energy to pour herself out into small businesses, community organizations, and into the heart and culture of Columbia.

Make it a great week!

Happy Wednesday! Today is a homesteading day. We just got a whole cow in the freezer that we share among several families each year. The cow comes with bones. The bones become stock. And we end up with beef tallow.

The other day, someone asked me if beef tallow can be eaten, so I thought why now do a show sharing five recipe ideas for beef tallow. We will cover that, as well as what the heck tallow even is later in the show.

#HollerHatWednesday: Where is she and who is she with?

Stump the Sauce

  • What is the benefit of having a manual espresso maker like the flair or rok?  With proper technique can they make a really good espresso shot?

What’s Up on the homestead

  • Getting ready for a new goat
  • Lots of firewood (the game we are playing)
  • Ducks and the pond on cold days

Main topic of the Show: 5 Beef Tallow Recipes

Check out this roundtable discussion of random stuff I had with Jack Spirko today!

Today I want to talk to you about thinking ahead and why it is important to do so, but not at the expense of taking care of and living in the now. You see, we have been running at maximum capacity at Holler Roast Coffee and so have the letter carriers. Some packages are taking forever to arrive, others are there in a moment, and some might be lost forever. But as we navigate this busy time, we’ve been building in time to think ahead, create plan bs while handling plan as every day. So I will talk about how we are approaching that later in the show.

Today, we will talk about how we processed the meat of three deer safely, while handling coffee orders, AND having a fantastic Thanksgiving. Because it is raining deer!

Tales from the Prepper Pantry

  • 3 deer in the hole
  • Annual cow arrives this week
  • Using salsa at a fast clip
  • Update on unusual recipes: the cranberry sauce was good to me but “not my cup of tea” to mama sauce
  • Gluten free perogi story (celium husk)
  • Hot coco was a hit the day after Thanksgiving
  • Fermented veggies were spicy but good
  • Left over sequence: Turkey scramble, turkey stew with Spaetzle, Turkey Salad sandwiches, Turkey orzo

What’s in Season

  • Unseasonably late watercress!
  • Oyster mushrooms

Operation Independence

  • Lots of Holler Roast activity (Why I missed the show part 1)
  • Basecamp will have countertops today!

Main topic of the Show: It’s Raining Deer

  1. The butcher box - how it came to be/why it works
  2. Division of labor - Skinning and quartering ~ Fine cuts and packaging ~ grinding and sausaging ~ constant cleanup and sterility
  3. The best sharp knives EVER
  4. Maintaining an empty fridge at a holiday event = no stress
  5. No stress, no rush, no processing when exhausted. 

Make it a great week!
