Long gone are the days of laziness on the computer. We have a new member of the family who I mentioned a few posts ago. Here are some pictures of her in all of her Raspberry Pink madness.
Oh and just a side not The Naked Feast will be joining The Crunchy Farmgirl. Recipes will be added regularly here, using my Recipage. I am hoping to have a lot more since I now have access to
Raw Real milk. It is awesome.
|The newest addition to the family. April, a purebred, 5 yr old jersey, expecting a calf any day now. Which means REAL milk!|
April is due early April. (How funny is that?) and then we are hoping to have another new addition to the homestead. This is exciting. I fed her all by my self today. Which is a huge step because I am terrified of being trampled. She is so--- calm. I actually even got into her pen today, my husband wasn't even there to protect me. Frankly, I am thrilled that she and I are getting along so well. Especially since I will most likely be doing a lot of the work once Ike goes back to work in a month or two.
Lastnight a friend and I went out on a voyage most would say we were crazy for doing. We went on a 2.5 hour drive to get Real milk. Oh it is so good. And we got it super fresh. As in, milked the same morning. Each half gallon jar had about 2 and a half inches of cream on top. We got almost an entire gallon of cream! So what did we do?
We made BUTTER!!! That was so fun and exciting! I will post the actual butter pictures another time.
Here's to another Monday. I didn't illustrate a single thing for almost half a week. I am exhausted from working on the fence for April, even though my husband and brother-in-law are probably a lot more tired than I am. Orion helped them out as well.
I have some awesome traditional foods things I learned Sunday night that will be sure to knock your socks off! Each thing is entitled to it's own blog post. YAY! I have material!
