Play • 32 min

Thanksgiving is almost here and that means food and lots of it! Prepping a big Thanksgiving feast can be challenging, but having a good strategy in place can make all the difference between being thankful or being stressed in the kitchen. 

In this episode of Pantry Chat, Josh and Carolyn share their own Thanksgiving menu, plus a few of their fun annual traditions, and some tips that can help you plan ahead to create a memorable and blessed holiday with your family. 

In this Episode

  • Get some of Carolyn and Josh’s favorite holiday recipes as well as Carolyn’s “go-to” pie crust. 
  • Why is Thanksgiving Josh and Carolyn’s favorite holiday? 
  • Why is sharing and giving thanks so important during this time? 
  • What is “Mayflower Night” and some of the other family traditions that Carolyn and Josh have every Thanksgiving?  
  • Why it’s OK to have pie for breakfast (Josh has a good reason!) 
  • What is on the menu for Thanksgiving this year at Josh and Carolyn’s house? 
  • Why you should write out your entire menu first and start by working backward?
  • The importance of having extra butter on hand. 
  • What to plan for dinner for the night before and what is a good breakfast option for Thanksgiving morning? 
  • Why BYOD (bring your own dishes) is a great alternative for reducing waste. 
  • Find someone you can bless and invite them to dinner this year.

S3 E1: The Victory Garden is BACK
Welcome back, my friends!  I can't begin to express how excited I am for what we're tackling in season three of the Old Fashioned on Purpose podcast. This past year was wild, to say the least.   I don't know about you, but I certainly never could've imagined that food shortage could be a topic of conversation in 2020.   Because of this, I'm dedicating this season to something that needs to be revived in this country:  The Victory Garden.   For those of you who've had a desire to start a garden of your own and didn't know where to start, then this season is specifically for you!  Follow along as I dig into the process of planning and planting my own Victory Garden as we take another step toward using our homestead to offer support within the community. * Is Dirt the New Prozac?   Discover Magazine study on the positive effects of bacteria in soil: * Design your dream homestead with my FREE handbook— grab it here: * Head to to get complimentary access to my best homestead resources. * Get more in-depth homestead info, printable recipes, and tutorials, and more on my blog at * Get Old-Fashioned on Purpose hats & shirts at * Follow Jill on YouTube: * Follow Jill on Instagram:

DIRT Workshop Roundup: Strip Tillage, Cover Crops, Relay Crops, and Grazing
This is our final episode of season three. What a great season it has been! To close out season three, we wanted to bring you a highlight reel from the recent DIRT workshop. However, with two full days of material and dozens of experts weighing in on a variety of topics - there was no way to condense things down to a 30 minute Soil Sense episode. So instead, I chose to pull clips from four different individuals, each of which weighed in on a different panel during the DIRT Workshop. Today’s guests were chosen not only for great information and stories, but also because they have not yet been featured on this podcast.You’ll hear from Steven Schuster, a farmer in Minto, North Dakota, talking about strip tillage, then will hear from Stefan Gailans, who is with the Practical Farmers of Iowa talking about cover crops, then Russ Gesch from USDA ARS based out of Morris, MN who shared about relay cropping, and will finish today’s episode with rancher Jerry Doan from McKenzie, ND who describes some of this practices grazing cover crops. “It’s not necessarily about getting the highest yield. It’s about having the most profit from the yield that you are getting, and controlling risk.” - Steven Schuster “A living cover crop is still standing up. Those row units can move through that a little better, so that they don’t plug. They can cut through the cover crop in the soil, get good depth control, and cover up that furrow again.” - Stefan Gailans (on planting soybeans green) “We call these winter oilseed ‘cash cover crops’, because we’re wanting to harvest them to tap into new markets, but also getting those environmental benefits of using it as a cover crop.” - Russ Gesch, Ph.D. (on relay cropping camelina/soybean) “When I was growing up, it was wheat and summer fallow, and half of that soil is in South Dakota because that’s where it blew to back in those days. And I didn’t know if we could bring those soils back...and we’ve been really impressed by how we ARE bringing those back.” - Jerry Doan This Week on Soil Sense: * Steven Schuster, farmer from Minto, ND talks about strip tillage * Stefan Gailans, research and field crops director for the Practical Farmers of Iowa talks about cover crops * Russ Gesch, Ph.D., research plant physiologist with USDA ARS in Morris, MN on relay cropping camelina * Jerry Doan, rancher from McKenzie, ND on grazing cover crops Connect with Soil Sense: * _Soil Sense Initiative _ Soil Sense Podcast is hosted by _Tim Hammerich_ of the _Future of Agriculture Podcast_.
