What a busy week we just completed!
The night before Memorial Day we got 60 hundredth of rain, so J and I decided to make a run to the Hills. My list was not that long, Thank Goodness! As we were pushing our filled cart out of Sam’s we met a guy in the parking lot laughing. He looked at us and said “This is the $200.00 store. You can’t get out the door for less than $200.00!”
On the way home we stopped to visit Auntie and Uncle M. I bartered with Auntie and gave her eggs in exchange for rhubarb.
Throughout the week I made rhubarb jam, Marge’s Rhubarb Dessert, and muffins.
I got all the ingredients to make the Pioneer Woman’s Restaurant Style Salsa. It is a favorite at our house; I make this instead of buy salsa. I have a few modifications to PW’s original recipe that I will share here.
Wednesday afternoon I didn’t get much done.
Thursday I mowed the lawn. It was in the mid 80’s! I also cleaned the kitchen and entryway.
Friday I finished up cleaning the house and worked on laundry. I have had a craving for my Mom’s second signature pie, Fresh Fruit Pie. So, I made one.
J has been busy checking cattle. He has to make sure the livestock are in, doing well and have plenty of salt, mineral and water. Needless to say, curious yearlings have a tendency to disregard the fence. J has had to get wandering heifers in twice this week. J went on a parts run on Thursday and the neighbors female production sale on Saturday. Saturday morning J told me the last cow calved!
Now we are back to the beginning of another week. What this week will bring is anyone’s guess; I just hope the sun keeps shining!
Do you have weeks where you amaze yourself with progress? What is your favorite rhubarb recipe?
