I was just cutting up ginger to make homemade ginger ale, but there's only 1 cup and the recipe calls for 1&1/2 cups. Rats! I also need some cilantro for bean soup or bean burritos; rats, again! Hubs to the rescue! I just have to wait until he gets home with them, though. At least I had all of the ingredients to make terriyaki chicken for the freezer! I won't use boneless thighs again, though! It was so time consuming cutting off the fat! By the time I got that done, I could have just used a whole chicken, or chicken breasts, de-boned them, and cut them up! This was the first time I bought boneless chicken thighs and I got them on mark down, or I wouldn't have purchased them. I already had chicken breasts purchased on markdown in the freezer. Live and learn!
I have some new irises blooming that are so beautiful! They have a small, almost lily like flower on them! Also, we have some more manure hay! They man next door was on his property next to ours. He was on his tractor, moving around fallen trees and branches from last year's storm, so I got his attention and asked if he would mind hoisting that pile over. He did, and now that's one less job for me and the buckets or wheelbarrow! I'm so glad! The stuff will eventually compost, but for now the chickens are loving it! Hope to chat with ya'll later! Have a great week! Blessings from Bama!
|We're enjoying oranges on the patio. Isn't Jasmine getting to be a big girl? She'll be 3 in June. That's me with the hat! I wear it when I'm outside to protect my head from the heat in the summer, and wind in the winter.|
|Layla has bad allergies! Her eyes were swollen and tears were running down her face! She spits out her meds! That's why I was feeding them oranges; for the vitamin C.|
|He touched the mountains and they smoked. It always looks like this when it rains.|
|The new irises are the deep yellow in front.|
|Such a beautiful color!|
|How they look at a distance.|
|I don't know the name of this rose, but I wished ya'll could smell it!|
|Ginger chicken for the crockpot.|
|I try to categorize things but it's becoming futile!|
|When I took this picture earlier today, it was raining. Now the sun is shining!|
