46° this morning but possibility of severe weather.
I found a good use for my leftover green whey. I used it in biscuits this morning with a little added milk to make up the l cup. DH said they were the best! He always says that when it is something he likes.
Out to the barn to milk at 8 AM. She was a little antsy but nothing severe so I milked her out completely. I stored the strained milk in the Milk Barn refrigerator and then went to the potting shed in the back and seeded 2 6-paks of broccoli seeds. I know I put seeds in this time. We will see how they do. The earlier ones didn't come up....not even one seed!
I made some Cinnamon Ginger Cookies this morning. I haven't made them in quite a while. I got the recipe from my Sis way back in the '70's.
Cinnamon – Ginger Cookies Preheat Oven to 375°
A crisp cookie similar to a ginger snap, but not as strong flavored.
This is one time you do not want to use butter.....too much liquid in the butter
¾ cup shortening
l cup sugar
Add and mix well:
¼ cup honey
Mix together and add:
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon ginger
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
Mix well; form into l inch balls and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture
Place about 2 inches apart because they will spread out.
Bake on ungreased sheet for 12-15 minutes.
For lunch I made sauce for pasta from a quart of frozen San Marzano tomatoes, small can of tomato paste with onions and garlic and some sliced smoked sausage. I still don't like the texture of frozen tomatoes....won't be doing that again. Dessert was the above cookies.
