Rain! Last Friday and Saturday we got some much much needed rain. An 1.75″! We keep catching a little shower here and there too.
I keep working on my 51 in 501 list. I can cross off cook or bake with browned butter. When J’s sister came to visit before Easter I tried a browned butter sauce and put it over brussels sprouts. I wasn’t sure if I got the butter browned, so didn’t “count it”. Last weekend I tried a browned butter brownie recipe. After browning the butter and visiting with a good friend, I think I did do it correctly the first time. So, I have now made a sweet and savory dish using browned butter.
We are getting ready to brand calves. The vaccine is in, the crew is called and the cooks have a plan.
As you can see in the picture above, yearlings have character. They make funny faces, jump fences and enjoy life. Well, life is good until Roxie starts nipping at their tails and chasing them back in.
My new dishwasher and washing machine came yesterday. If you remember, the dishwasher quit the night before I served Easter Dinner and the washer has been leaking for a while. Now, I can attack my growing pile of muddy laundry.
I couldn’t take my camera out in the rain last weekend, so these pictures were taken a couple of weekends ago.
Last week J and I went on a road trip to pick up a puppy. Pictures of puppy coming soon! Still working on a name for her, but getting closer.
