The “Bug Sisters” (AKA Katie-Bug and Haley-Bug) are spending the weekend with us at the farm. We have been super-busy! We have….
Been on a search…
for huckleberries. We only found a few, but it will be enough to go in our pancakes tomorrow morning.
SOME of us sat…
And some of us picked!
We also searched for blackberries. Most of them we found looked like these red ones… not ready yet! Thankfully, “Grumps” picked a bunch, and so we had THIS for dessert tonight.
It was 97 degrees today… how shall we cool off? What can we make from these things?
How about some SNOW ICE CREAM!! We saved some of the snow from the February snowstorm and this was a great time to pull it out. The girls loved the snow ice cream! It was a little icy, but that is ok… we have snow so rarely here, we will eat it and enjoy it anyway.
What else have we done? We cooked our Memorial Day feast today… we started about noon and finally finished cleaning the kitchen about 8pm…. WHEW!! I have not cooked this much in the last month!
We had: smoked brisket and pork ribs, smoked sausage, homemade BBQ sauce, deviled eggs, fresh squash, baked beans, rolls, cobbler, and snow ice cream. We have enough left-overs to eat all next week… I can go back to my normal “cook as little as I can get by with”. We are all stuffed… well, ONE of us eats, and 15 minutes later says, “Granny, I’m HUNGRY!” Of course it is the tall skinny one that does this! I don’t know where she puts it all!
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday. Pause and remember the brave ones that have given their lives to protect the freedoms we all enjoy in our wonderful USA.
Be blessed! Remember the give-away details will be coming sometime next week. See you again soon, hopefully with some quilting/sewing posted. I know you think I don’t ever get any of that done, but I really do… you’ll see!
