The Last Windrow: Goal accomplished with crawdad feed


It’s a long way from a pork chop to a crawdad.

I grew up never traveling much more than 30 or 40 miles away from our farm home. A trip to Sioux City, 24 miles away was looked on as a big event.

When you live in a small circle like that, you tend to eat about the same menu every day, week or year. There are not many surprises, and surprise meals are not really what most of the farm people I grew up with accepted readily. We wanted basic meat and potatoes and not much else.
