Frog Legs and Port ~ Homestead Updates ~ Out of Hay
I forgot to mention that I got the chance to taste frog legs.
In case you haven't noticed, I do post a column on the left side of my blog, recording new foods we try each year.
We also got the opportunity to do a wine tasting, and we tried Tawny Port for the first time. This we loved, but the price on the bottle is a bit over $38.00.
About the frog legs....
They don't taste like chicken either (at least to me). They have a fishy taste and the meat is somewhat rubbery.
My doctor's office agreed to call in a prescription. Thankfully, I didn't need to drive up and spend about $90.00 just to see her. Hubby agreed to pick it up for me. As you can see Dr. Tiggles has not abandoned me. In fact, when I spiked my fever, it was Nurse Jesse and Dr. Tiggles that were laying right on top of me.
I have a book that I'll be updating you on soon. So far, I am enjoying it when I am up to reading. And an update on Folk Magazine.
My youngest daughter crocheted me a bookmark.
The farm animals are most likely miserable being locked in these last few days - loads of rain, with snow off and on. Not the best weather days here.
My son is still not feeling so well. However, the worst has passed.
We are completely out of hay. I'm not sure the girls are ready to have farm animals, as they make no effort to help get the hay. The work is completely put on my husband, so this upsets me today. It will cost is $9.00/bale, since we now have the horse, it is used much faster.
I have realized why people have succumbed to giving their horse away for free - very expensive to feed. Especially when the owner of the horse does not have a job.
