I am going to give you a small recipe for a five quart cast iron pot. Purlow must be cooked in a cast iron pot Lodge Logic Dutch Oven, 5qt. (Google Affiliate Ad). If it’s not cooked in cast iron then it is just chicken-n-rice. If you decide to cook purlow once, you will try it again. The more you cook purlow, you will learn that it is a subjective dish. You can substitute any small wild game you like for the chicken. You can cook larger or smaller pots based on how many people you want to feed. And lastly you have to cook it often – the more you cook it the better you get at it. This dish has been called by many spellings it is also often spelled Pilaf, or Pilau.

It seems there is no end to our buzzard luck. Joe got the tractor running again Thursday. Friday morning it rained, so we couldn’t get anything done, that’s not a complaint by the way, the rain is a blessing. Friday afternoon it cleared off, and Tracy was able to get most of Mama’s grass cut. When he tried to crank the tractor today to finish the grass cutting, it was acting up again.

Last year the Briary River crew decided to grow a summer garden, the main staple of which was beans and corn. This year we decided to start early with a winter garden then a summer garden. We have some idea of what we are doing since we all grew up working in our parents gardens but we are also trying to branch out and try new things.

It seems that we here at Briary River have Buzzard Luck. We can’t kill nuthin’, and ain’t nuthin’ dyin’. We decided a while back that we were going to try to grow some corn to feed the deer this fall. About a month back Tracy and I turned the field and got it ready to plant.
