Hi!!! I’m still here, have you missed me???? Well, it’s been a bit of a funny farm around here with eight dogs, three kids, and a husband out at sea so I haven’t meant to not write, it’s just been busy. The boys are growing like bad weeds and into EVERYTHING…
Yeah, you can just guess how my floors look after a walk with these three….
Today I baked a yummy coffee cake with cinnamon, brown sugar, pecan topping with a vanilla icing drizzle. It was to say the least…SCRUMPTIOUS….we took it with us when we went to visit the female we co-own from this litter and her new family….
The recipie is as follows:
1Tbsp Baking Powder
1C Butter/margarine softened
1C Sour Cream
1 1/2C Sugar
Cream the butter, sour cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla, add the dry ingredients. Put in a greased and lightly floured 9x13 pan and top with the following:
1C Brown Sugar
2C Pecans chopped
4 Tbsp melted butter
Bake at 350F for about 30-35 minutes. Once cooled- mix together a vanilla glaze- I used about 2tbsp margarine melted…um, about 1-1 1/2C powdered sugar, 1tsp vanilla, and some milk until you get the right consistency to drizzle over the cake. I really didn’t measure the glaze recipie, so these are all estimates..
We had a great visit to the family Shakira lives with. They have sheep, rabbits, chickens, pigs, ducks…the whole works..I LOVED IT THERE! So did the pups…
Stig will be home in little over a week and then I will have some extra hands here. That’s going to be great. It’s not my intention to have so many dogs, but Sou won’t be leaving until the end of September- so another month here with us, and we will keep Redman until we can find a suitable home for him, however long that will take! Then we will be down to six..but old mamma Heidi doesn’t count, she doesn’t take walks anymore, sleeps most of the day and night and is just here. I’d like to be down to two or three in the future, but I’d like just boys here eventually which is why I’m keeping Bently here.
I’d also love some of these..
Aren’t they gorgeous?? Any hobby chicken owners out there who could give me some tips and advice about keeping chickens? Who lay the best eggs, how many do you need? How do you clean their cages and how often? Would love to know what all is involved…could burst my romantic thoughts about keeping chickens….Stig can hope right??? hahahaha..
Have a great Saturday folks..until next time..
