Good morning. I am feeling a bit better today. I think. I was wide awake this morning at 5:30! So I turned on the telly and watched Dancing With The Stars that I recorded last night. I have no favorite. I love the three left!!
Last night I made sausage and egg burritos for my crew. I hope my girls keep on giving. Because we are sure enjoying the eggs!!
Let's talk syrup. Most people probably buy log cabin, or Aunt Jemina syrup on the cereal aisle of their supermarket. I used to too, and it tastes okay. But once you try pure maple syrup, I kid you not, you will never buy that artificially flavored stuff again!!!
As you can probably tell, I have been cooking with eggs a lot! Say hello to my little egg layers.
The other 4 girls are all laying. They are not all laying daily, but I get 3 and sometimes 4 eggs a day. That adds up fast!
They are all pals and get along great. I have two nest boxes in the coop. One is a wooden box from the feed store. It was Snacker's box. And the other one is a decorative box I had from Michael's or something? You do NOT need to go buy a box at the feed store. They are pricey, and they don't even prefer that box. They mostly lay in the wine box from Michael's! Go figure! Just as long as it is large enough for them to get inside, they don't seem to mind. My other girls, "The Little B's" liked to lay eggs in my garden and in leaves in the grove!!
Have you done your shopping for Thanksgiving? We have. We ordered the entire meal at Marie Callender's. The whole turkey and ham feast. With green beans, double mashed potatoes, double gravy, double stuffing, corn bread and pumpkin pie with real whipped cream. We go early in the morning on Thursday to pick it up. Kind of odd really. I love to cook. And we order our Thanksgiving meal? We started this a few years ago to make it easier, and we found that we enjoyed the day so much more! I enjoy it more. I don't kill myself cooking and cleaning, and setting tables. I just enjoy the family. We all enjoy the food. And it makes for a very pleasant day. We used to always have Thanksgiving with my entire family. Usually at my Mom's. But since my kids have had their little ones, it seems to work better for them to be closer to home. I miss being with my Mom and Nana on Thanksgiving though. And of course, there is no better cook I know, than my Mom!!! I do plan to cook a turkey too. If I get my ducks in a row, I will cook it on Wednesday, tomorrow, and have my first Cooking 101. How To Cook A Turkey.
That's it from the farm. Have a great day!
