Thank You to the American farmer and their families - their efforts supply the nutrients that sustain our healthy lifestyles. Weather your a vegetarian or a carnivore - before the food is placed on your plate, even before it gets to the market a lot of hard work has taken place on the other end of the food chain.
Before dawn a dairy farmer is tending to the cows. Moo juice for you and me, who likes ice cream? Can't make ice cream with out eggs, cackle berries, rooster bullets, what ever you call them thin shelled ovals, they add to a whole bunch of delightful dishes. And with cheese please.
Long before I drag my lazy-tired ass out of bed in the morning a farmer has already put in a few hours of effort. Those of us lucky enough to have the option of what we start our day with have the difficult decision (grn) of; a cup of Joe, tea, a tall glass of milk, juice, hot or cold cereal, -- maybe a little fruit too - "thank you".
How about eggs over easy, sunny side-up or scrambled, ham, bacon, or sausage, hash-browns, or grits, biscuits with cream gravy or red-eye? Breakfast taco's, bagels, or cinnamon rolls to go - a farmer touched one of those ingredients. A stack of buttermilk pancakes, french toast or a Belgian waffle with maple syrup with hot-links K.O.'s me every time.
A great big thanks to those men and women who; plant the seeds, toil the land, tend the crops, suffer through droughts and pray for the rain. Care for the livestock through freezing temperatures, work the fields, and mend the fences along the way. Their daily routine of chores under a blazing hot sun or in the freezing rains it gets done. Nope, it ain't no nine to five job and there ain't no quitting time.
Yes ma'am my hats off to all those farmers; here, there, and yonder.
Sincerely Thx ;-),
