Blogger's block...yep I have had it! I guess it is like writer's block only for bloggers, my creative mental juices have not been flowing! Would that be brain juice...hmmm. See my mind has just gone loopy! So let me see about some catch up for everyone.
I hatched 24 baby chicks in the incubator!
I was quiet impressed because I had used the incubator to hatch 3 batches of turkey eggs and had a very,very poor hatch rate.
The chicken eggs did great though!
We spent last Saturday morning at the feed store giving away kittens! They were all gone in 45 minutes! I do feel like all the people who wanted them will give them good homes. They all seemed nice and stayed and talked awhile before they left with their kittens,small towns ya know! The little one we kept is now named Oscar....Oscar Peterson. No, our last name is not Peterson, it's just Oscar's last name!
The in-laws made a surprise visit Sunday evening. Me and the MIL spent Monday at the antique shops,always fun!
I have been dehydrating bell peppers. I find I have developed some sort of need to be preserving some kind of food at all times! I used some of the dehydrated bell peppers the other day and I am very impressed at how well they worked out in my recipe! I pan seared a couple of steaks then added some beef broth, a little tomato sauce, some Worcestershire sauce,S&P and some of the dehydrated bell peppers and let it all simmer for awhile. Then when the meat was to my desired tenderness I thickened the sauce with a little starch...mmmmm, it was really good!
Hubby comes home tomorrow! He will come home to a much cooler Texas than when he left last month! We have had some unseasonably cool weather lately...I am not complaining,nope! I am cheering! I love the cold weather! It was 40* when I got up this morning! This is not good for my Fall garden if I expect to get any tomatoes...but..I am so happy to have cooler temps I don't mind missing out on the extra tomatoes!
Some more big news,I am planning a trip next week to visit my blogging sister Texan! I can't wait,we have loads of fun stuff planned! Whew,I hope we can fit it all in and she has a bunch of baby goaties right now and you all know how I love those baby goaties! Hubby will get to be the single parent farmer for a few days...hmmm...I am not going to think about it,lol! I hope the Boys won't get into too much mischief!
