I made a round loaf of Savory Dill Bread yesterday to go with dinner. We had spaghetti and meat sauce and it went with the meal perfectly. The bread was just outstanding and I had Italian Dipping oil as well. Oh goodness, it was good, even though you wouldn't have thought Savory Dill Bread and Italian Dipping oil would have gone together! I only ate a little. It was difficult saying no to one of my most beloved foods but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. My hubby was in 7th Heaven. LOVED IT!!!!
This morning I put a chuck roast in the crockpot for supper. We’re having creamed carrots, mashed potaotes and gravy and green beans to round the meal out. What would I do without my handy dandy crockpot. It has saved my life on many occasions. I kind of figured with the temperatures being so nice that there’s no way I would stay in the house for long when I got home and I surmised planning ahead might be a good idea. There are so many dead tree limbs and sticks to be picked up and getting a head start wouldn’t hurt. If I come in too very late, my husband and I love roast beef sandwiches and I’ve got salad already prepared and in the frig - so I’m covered one way or the other.
After work I stopped by Rural King and bought the last few packets of vegetable and flower seed that I needed. I kept scanning the store for the baby chickens but I think it’s still too early. Baby chickens and ducks shipped in to the farm store is always a reminder that Spring is upon us. I love to go and just look at them. They are so cute. My hubby is going to fix a chicken coop up for me and next year I’m planning on buying chicks and hopefully, having my first "real" eggs. We’ve decided not to get too many - just enough for eggs for the two of us. We raised chickens when we were young and didn’t have the foggiest idea what we were doing. I’m going to try to raise them and be a little smarter about it this time. One thing I do know, I do NOT want to raise them to butcher. I know how but it’s not something I really want to do. I would if I had to, but as long as I don’t-I won’t. It’s just real hard for me to eat something which I’ve named!!! You can just imagine looking down at your plate at Henrietta or Gloria. Yikes!!!!
