Random Tidbits ~ Sausage and Kale Millet Skillet
I was up, and sipping through my first cup of coffee Tuesday morning, when my phone rang about 7:00am.
I needed to drive Mom to the ER and that is where I was most of the day, having doctors poke, exam, and check her. After three days in the hospital, she's still in there. Doctors have not made a diagnosis yet. She is feeling better, but not having answers is frustrating.
I'm continuing to get creamed condensed soups on the freezer.
The kitchen smells so good when I am making these. Lately, I've managed to get one done a day, considering time constraints.
Our egg production went from two or three to seven the other day. I'm considering baking some molting muffins for them the next time they molt, but the recipe requires items that I would have to order. Has anyone baked molting muffins for their chickens?
I baked up another millet skillet, but changed up the ingredients. Instead of ham, I cooked ground sausage, and added kale wilted down with garlic. The recipe I used online uses corn starch (which I buy non-gmo), but will continue to try new recipes. I would like to find one that uses a flour (or other ingredient) vs. so much corn starch, and one that I can bake in a 9 x 13 inch dish. This one was so good. We all wanted a second piece, and I only own one pan this size.
The weather quickly changed to cold recently, and today the frost looks like a fin layer of snow. We may get more now showers later today as well. I'm hoping Hubby doesn't work overtime so we can set our t-posts for the snow fence, before the ground gets too hard.
