Back at it again

Well we are back at it again.  And again let me apologize for the long delay.  Like i said in my last post, things got a little hectic.  But they are starting to level out now and we are going to try to get back in the swing.  Buckman has some new material he is wanting to post and we have some new toys.

We now have a boat, and i will tell you some about that later as well as a new camera. So we should have some better pictures.

We have our annual Quail, Pheasant, and Chukka shoot tomorrow and I plan to have plenty of pictures and picking in the next couple days. 

Stick around, this could get interesting.

Busy lives

Bet you are surprised to hear from us again.  I know it has been a while.  Although there is no excuse let me start with a little explanation.  First of all I have started a new job.  My hours are different and i am still getting used to it.  Buckman has had a lot going on as well with his classes that he is taking for a second masters and trying to get his house finished.  Add that to the garden, the duckpond and another BIG thing that we have going on it has our time strained.

The BIG thing is just that, it is big.  In many ways.  While i am not going to say what it is just yet, don't worry, once we get it going we will let y'all know. 

Now for the pond.  We have finally got water in it after duck season this year.  So while this year was alot better than last year it was still a bit of a flop.  I did not get to go to any big water this year.  But we did manage to kill a few ducks.

One of the big things that happened this season was our newest duck hunter in our group.  My little princess Molly.  She went with me a couple times this year and seems to love it.  She points out birds coming in (although at 2 1/2 years old she points out any bird and is still learning what ducks look like.)  and she thinks it is hilarious when i shoot.

We have also put up a few wood duck boxes around the pond.  We are now trying to find something that we can plant without having to drain the pond so we do not have the same problems that we did last time.

Dutch Oven Cobbler

This little Jewel started the Briary River Dutch Oven craze.  It has been slightly modified over the years but is still as easy as ever.  You can use fresh or canned filling that is entirely up to you.  We started off with canned then evolved to fresh as we grew the fresh ingredients.

PEE DEE Purlow, Also known as Pilaf, Pilau

Don’t demean this classic sportsman’s dish by calling it Chicken and rice.  This ain’t chicken-n-rice, and it ain’t chicken bog either!  This is the real deal, chicken purlow, and it may be one of the best things you ever put in your mouth! See more recipes on the Briary River Recipe Page
            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.
