'False spring' Friday

L-R: Gilda, Buffy, Goldilocks
Looks like a second Easter Egger is gearing up to lay. We haven't had two blue/green eggs in one day in a long time!

Susan mentioned this recipe on her blog. I just happened to have a bag of fresh cranberries in my produce drawer, so I made it for our Valentine's dessert last night. Mmm, mmm, GOOD! I used the whole bag of cranberries, which was more than the two cups called for, whole wheat pastry flour, organic evaporated cane juice (I stopped buying white sugar), and olive oil instead of butter. I think Rick and I just may finish it off for supper tonight, since Brian is gone for the weekend.

He is with a church youth group at a 'summer' camp in the Cascades playing in the snow – a far cry from the weather here today! It got above 60 degrees, so I decided to give Lance a bath in preparation for his first show a week from Sunday. If he'll leave a stable sheet on, he'll stay clean enough that all I'll need to do is wipe down his face and maybe rinse off his legs again. But it will not surprise me at all if my mouthy mustang undresses himself. Oh well, he'll still be cleaner than if he hadn't had a bath!

That's it for today from . . .

I have never heard of organic evaporated cane juice.. I am a diabetic and this sounds like something I could use instead of splenda or any other kind of products.. Where do you buy this product?
my e-mail address is:

Hope Mr. Lance says clean...good luch.
ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Enjoy the spring like weather ... 73 here yesterday, temps going down soon with chance of snow at 2500 ft. but they have been wrong on the snow several times so far. Good luck at the horse show.

A weekend with just the two of you at home?? Ooo-la-la! (What it probably means is that Rick will have 3 or 4 emergency calls, eh?)

We've had bright sunshine all day today (noon now) and our temperature has climbed all the way up to . . . 12! I'll bet you're all jealous, right?

Gosh! I'm going sugarless too, or trying too... but going with Stevia. Still using sugar in baking, but am going to try to get around that, too. We are supposed to have 50 degree temps tomorrow after snow today. Your ME's are on the way!
