We grilled some ribs along with some grilled string beans (Oh my, they were terrific!), and on the side, some cabbage salad. And for dessert, homemade ice cream, cuddled next to a slice of fresh coconut cake.
This was a vanilla bean ice cream recipe modified from David Lebovitz. Here is the link http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2009/02/vanilla-ice-cream/
The ice cream was wonderful. This was one dessert that had no leftovers.
Our niece's little girl is on a mission to get the eggs from the
First she stopped to look in the pen where the separated roosters live.
In tow is a helper... our little Pickles.
On to the coop to find the eggs...
In her excitement to get the eggs, she drops them into the egg basket breaking a few in the process. That can be expected from a new egg harvester. Maybe next time she'll understand the need to be gentle, but today she will make a sweet memory.
Finally, as we get ready to go back to the house, she shows us what she collected. Dropping one in the process.
You know they have a saying, "Don't place all your eggs in one basket". Maybe this is why? As for today we made memories, and as for the few eggs we lost, tomorrow we will have a fresh new batch to collect.
