Look what happened to our world yesterday........I have a shepherdess farm friend who has had five of my Momma sheep for some time to help build her flock. She sent me a picture......it was Momma Olivia......and her two adorable baby lambs. I hopped in the car and off to her farm..... it isn't very far from mine. I could hardly wait to get out of the car....she said they were over in the shed and that there was another Momma in labor so we needed to quiet for her.......we walked up and there was Momma Olivia with her patchy black faced babies....she had a little boy and girl!!! I started to cry.....I know stupid but I was overwhelmed with Farm Momhood to these two littles!!! I so miss having children.....I know that might be weird.....but I do miss having someone to nurture and so my animals are what I care for now and I love it!! I will get to have them back here on the farm this next week!! You will find me out in their shed getting it ready on Monday when it is warmer!!!
Before CHRISTmas I visited Rosa and Aunt Ella to take one of my frozen chicken that I raised this fall. After feeding them they ended up being 10 pounds. I knew they would love this gift...because a fresh hen is wonderful especially when you know what they are eating....better then the store. When I got to their sweet farm......on the table Rosa had a jar of her own canned chicken......it was so funny that we both thought the same!!! When I got back home I placed my gift on the shelf for a special meal! The other night I put the chicken in a pan.....added a cup of milk with 1/4 cup of flour. Salt and pepper and let simmer with the chicken and broth until it was thick.
Rolled the dough.......see my little heart.......????
I whipped up a nummy 1/2 batch of egg noodles......having fresh eggs and a food processor makes the work so much easier......like in 5 minutes you can have them made up and rolled out it.....easy to start cutting. I made mine pretty......used a cracker cutter!!!
Then I made mashed potatoes.....we love our chicken and noodles on the top!! It was so good........it has been years since I canned chicken.....before spring I will try to get some done! So nice to grab a pint off the shelf for a fast meal. Chicken is easy to put up too!!!
Well I hope all is well.......a storm is coming our way.......rain and snow........I will be in the house working on my craft room......a never ending job!!! So foggy outside but so nice and warm inside!!!!!
