My lioness, Birdy, must think she lives in the tropics because she is losing her coat BIG TIME.
I am really confused by this considering I KNOW we don’t live in the tropics- I’ve never seen the tropics look like this…
Thankfully none of the other dogs are losing their coat- at least not like Birdy…..or I’d need some more bags!!! Say, anybody know of a good wool spinner out there who could spin this wool into yarn for me? I’ve seen Leonberger wool spun and used and it’s gorgeous!!!! The colour is so warm and the fur is also, I believe you mix it with a little sheep wool or other types of wool- I don’t know- I don’t knit, I don’t spin…I just brush and collect!
The children are making good use of the winter weather and entertaining themselves to no end…I’ve borrowed this video Sarah took of her brother and sister yesterday…don’t worry folks…he’s ok…
As for me, I prefer to stay in and make yummy soups and then share the recipe with you all…such as this cream of chicken soup which is easy and YUMMY….
About 4-500 grams of chicken breast cut into small strips
300 grams of mushrooms chopped finely
2 TBSP butter (or margarine)
1-2 small onions cut up finely
6TBSP lemon juice
2TBSP dry Timian or 4TBSP fresh
4dl Chicken stock
4dl Heavy Cream
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Basically you’ll lightly fry up the chicken first and set it aside- sautee the onion and mushrooms in the butter or margarine- then add the rest of the ingredients- buzz a couple times with a standing mixer until the soup is mostly in a purreed consistence. Add chicken in the end and serve with a good bread. At our house we always add a touch of dog hair…we find it gives our food that little something extra you don’t get anywhere else- (at least those places that don’t have a dog themselves)
Until Next Time Folks…
