Thank you to all who left comments!!!!!! So sweet of you and it made my time being home all the sweeter!!!!! Our day was truly amazing. We (the girls) did better then we thought. At first we were a little teary.......it is always a little bit hard when you would rather be home, but we heard the sermon yesterday.....and the Lord had made it clear to us...... that He was with us. When we got to the cafe we were going to smile! We have to dress kind of funny, but we were not going to complain. Our boss finally let us all be able to wear tees in the kitchen and only the jackets out in public. Thank you JESUS! God was so precious, I know He heard you all praying, in fact some of the prayers that were emailed to me and left on my post... I knew He had His hand on us by what you had specifically prayed!!!!!!!!! The other thing that happened was we were so busy that it made the day go so fast and before we knew it, it was time to leave for home!
I just have to say you are soooooo PRECIOUS! Thank you for loving my family so!
As many of you know we made Lemon Cream Bars at the bakery today (I put it up on fb on our break and said I would put it up if anyone would want it). It is one of the kids favorite recipes, so that was on the menu!!!!!
Lemon Cream Bars
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2/3 c. confectioners sugar
3/4 c. butter
12 ounce of cream cheese
1 1/2 c. of confectioners sugar
1 1/2 cup white sugar
3 T. unbleached flour
1/4 c. lemon juice (we use fresh squeezed)
1 T. lemon zest
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting the top
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan using butter.
Combine the flour, 2/3 cup confectioners' sugar, and butter. Pat dough into prepared pan.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until slightly golden.
While the crust is baking, whisk together eggs, white sugar, flour and lemon juice until frothy. Set aside.
Cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar.
After the crust has cooled, spread cream cheese mixture over the top of crust. Pour lemon mixture over the top of the cream cheese mixture.
Return to the preheated oven for an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Dust the top with powdered sugar. Makes 36.
We are also going to start making all the pizza dough. It was not hard at all and amazing to watch the dough rise. This picture does not look as big as it really was. It had 84 cups of flour.......so that gives you an idea. It just kept rising and rising! I enjoyed working with the dough. It started about 3' long when we put it on our work station. Thought you would like to see.
Okay..... on my fb I said I would have a little surprise tonight. It is just for some fun as I start serving again at the college.
As you know from my blog my sweet man and I have been picking Sandhill Plums everynight. They are so beautiful and big. It is so peaceful as we pick. Tons of birds are singing away in the cool of the evening. From the time I was little, picking any kind of berry is a favorite thing for me to do!!!!!! I also enjoy canning jams and jellies for CHRISTmas gifts. My kitchen is getting full of boxes that are just waiting for me to make up some jelly. I thought it would be fun to have a little party and one of you could win a 1/2 pint jar of Sandhill Plum Jelly. It really is the nummiest!
Okay, I haven't made it yet, but I will one of these nights and will fill this little jar full of beautiful red sandhill plum jelly for one who signs up.
PARTY WILL END AT NOON ON
THURSDAY August 16th,
that is my sweet Phil and my 38th anniversary!
So all you have to do is tell me.......what is your favorite jam or jelly? Love getting to know you all a little bit better!
Come over to my facebook and leave a note!!
Now if a person wins from overseas, I probably can't send this, but I will have something special for you and pick someone else for the jam!!!! So please sign up.
If YOU DON'T HAVE A BLOG email me at
prairie flower farm at g mail dot com
PLEASE put in the subject line jelly.
Hugs from the farm!!!!!!!
