Darlene's English Muffins   With the price of english muffins getting high (Thomas english muffins are $3.99), I decided to make some of my own today.

The Shed

It is raining and I have separated 3 does that are pregnant from the rest of the flock.

I don't need blue or red brightly flashing... "Hey look here!!!"   I do have silver tarps for reflecting the heat but that is another story... so I have a tote(s) filled with tarps of all sizes.   I have several ways of securing these tarps.

Ripped Off Recipes 3

There are two types of clam chowder, the one most are familiar is Boston or New England which is the white and there are many recipes for it, the other is rarely seen any more and is called Manhattan Clam Chowder and is red.   When I was a child many restaurants served both but I guess the red fell out of favor.   I personally prefer Manhattan Clam Chowder and after searching on the net for recipes and trying many of them, this is by far the best one I have ever had.   Manhattan Clam Ch

Pantry Diving

Dream Whip!   Dream Whip is a whipped topping like Whipped Cream or Cool Whip. Mixed with cold water.... use your solar cooker at night to make cold water, ice even! or wet burlap and cover a frame and put water in it to keep it cold on the north side of the house.   Two tablespoons has 10 calories, comes in a box and stores almost forever as long as the package isn't opened. I would say it stores forever but forever is a very long time.   "Dream Whip can be also used as an ingredient i

Just Another Day On The Farm

It is cold. I ran out of propane a few days ago. I had to change companies that deliver propane and went from a metered system to a call for delivery.   I hate the call for delivery! this means I have to check my tank. I ran out! oops! good thing I have an oil filled heater and a fire place. Today I will get filled.   Lesson learned.. NEVER NEVER call and say "I am out of propane" the lady on the other end of the phone said "that will be another $45 charge for a pressure test"   WHAT???

My Holiday Tree

I have a Holiday Tree. The kids bought me a 3 foot tall white Christmas Tree so I can decorate year round.   I bought all sorts of trimmings after Christmas for $0.25 cents, in red, green, orange, and blue. I was hoping to get pastel colors but have to wait for Easter.   My intent is to decorate it each month with what ever holiday falls in that month. The months without holidays are June and August, January if you don't count New Years Day/Month.   This is going to be my fun monthly ho

Just Another Day On The Farm

2-6-09   Today it is pouring. Rain is expected for the next 2-3 days. The wind is blowing very hard, but it's not cold out to snow. I had to go out in the rain and it felt good, and of course I am soaked but I am not minding.   Knowing it was going to rain, I started chili yesterday and finished it up this morning. It is a great Chili day!   I am cleaning kitchen cupboards (again). After Christmas the kids came for two weeks and bless their hearts, they put everything in the wrong place
