Warm Florida

Derek and I arrived in Orlando yesterday. It’s warm, but drizzly, but at least it’s not freezing! We have started the planning process for this year’s Farm Bureau Young Farmers & Ranchers national conference. We are expecting about 900 young farmers from across the country. It will be a fun weekend of networking, learning about one another and sharing our experiences, challenges and successes.

Things will kick off this afternoon and end with agriculture tours Monday. Plenty of early mornings and late nights between then.

Since we were traveling yesterday, I didn’t get a beef recipe posted. So, today I have two recipes to keep your meal planners full through the weekend.
