The park is Located on the North Sulfur river about 5 minutes from our Texas Holiday rental and  North of Downtown Ladonia,Texas. We took a trip to the park yesterday to click some photos for my(My guide to Texas, Prairies and Lakes area).
We met a very nice family from Louisiana, they came to Texas to check out the park. They all seemed to be having a good time. I will include in my photos the tooth the family found. I also found a site that will give you the feed back of other people who have been to the park  The Fossil Forum.

Natural Pasture Fed Beef

The Porter-O’Fannin approach to livestock shares is a little unconventional. We believe most families have a very specific preference of beef. We separate the cuts during processing to create shares that are more appealing to your family. The shares sell reasonably enough that you may wish to diversify your options by purchasing more than one share type. Obviously, because of the make-up of the shares, the cost per share must vary with share category. This system is a little more work for us but, it provides excellent product and choices for your family to enjoy. Your shares represent a part of a herd group but, does not correspond to any individual animal.

Paleo grocery shopping

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

I was watching one of my favorite cooking shows and she said one of the questions she gets a lot on her blog is how to make the trip to the grocery store faster. I started to think about what we eat on Paleo; fruit, vegetables, meat and nuts. We only shop on the outer sections of the grocery store and statists  show this is where all the healthy foods are found. All the junk food and processed foods are in the aisles. I know the stores I shop at the meat and the produce are real close, so  one quick run down the baking aisle for almonds and done!

I also wanted to share a few yummy snacks I found:

Pizza can be made on Portobello mushroom caps.

Spaghetti sauce on top of a cooked spaghetti squash or cooked zucchini sticks.

Any protein and vegetable combo can be wrapped in a lettuce leaf to make a wrap.

Plantain slices fried in coconut oil served with guacamole or salsa.

I was out this morning watering the garden when I saw this, so I ran into the house and grabbed my camera! The Bull, Cow and calf all eating at the same time, this does not happen very often.
