As you know Sunday was company day. All went well. I was glad I chose the biscuit topping.
They both had biscuits on the side with the Chicken Pot Pie.
We had enough leftovers that I sent them home with enough for another meal plus a dozen eggs.
We got 3 eggs.
Monday was a cold and rainy day.....I did not venture outside. We got 9 eggs.
Tuesday, another dreary day. I woke up at 2 AM and just got up. I realized I had let us run out of bread so at 3 AM I had two loaves going. Turned out great.
I would encourage everyone to begin making their own bread. I is very, very easy and the time involved is the rising time and you can be doing anything you want during that time. I made this one entirely by hand. As you can see a big heavy duty mixer is not required.
One day I made what I call a skillet dinner. I got the idea of adding the smoked sausage from Granny's Place. I didn't have the green pepper so I added a pinch of red pepper flakes instead. Last year was a bad year for peppers here in my gardens. The other change was I added some sweet potatoes to the mix because I still have a lot left in storage. I even served it with cornbread like she did.
We both liked it very much.
I have seen green peppers in the store that were almost $2 each and swore I would not pay that ridiculous price for them, but I did. It made a lot of diced pepper that I froze. They were huge peppers.
I haven't checked to see how much rain we got yet.
The last vinca that I placed on a heating pad is up much better than the first planting with no bottom heat. I uncovered it this morning but left it on the pad and will do so for a couple of days.
I finished 'Mary, Mary' by James Patterson. We have several book due so I will have DH return them when he goes in for exercise today.
We got seven eggs.
This will be milking morning. I have put if off to the last minute and can't delay any longer. I don't like to get lower than ½ gallon before milking again.
