Besides being muddy, today was a perfect day. No wind, mid 60's and sunny. Believe me when I tell you the wife tried to get me going by wanting to do this and needing to do that and even though I went along and supported her while she was cleaning out some pens, and moving chicks around, all I did was watch and get in the way.
She said she wanted to get the buck pen finished, move some goats, clean some chicken pens, move some chicks, herd the geese, set some eggs, clean the house and I think she even said she wanted to take over the world at one point.
I am going to regret not doing much today but like I told her, when you work in the mud, it takes so much more energy and time. Plus your tools get all nasty and in the end your finished product does not look as good as you wanted it to. (Can you believe that excuse really worked?)
|Showing off for the girls|
We did sell a goat today so at least I made my gas money back from yesterdays spontaneous four hour trip. Plus, we passed out some fliers and cards at some local businesses and made a few new connections that I hope will pay off in the end.
Tomorrow we have a large shipment of Standard and Bantam Bardrock chicks coming in. Some will be kept for breeders and the rest will be sold as pullets when they get old enough. We have had a lot of requests for that specific breed and I sure hate to turn people away so now we are doing our best to meet the demand. I just wished I got some six months ago.
While the wife was slaving away outside in the chicken barns, I was watching Paula Dean, I sure like her (you know it ain't always like that folks). So tonight I cooked the wife "Pork Chop and Pineapple Pie".
This is what Paula did;
For each serving, lay a boneless pork chop on a large square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Top each chop with a slice of onion, a slice of green pepper, and a slice of pineapple. Drizzle with teriyaki sauce. Top with some butter and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Wrap tightly in the foil and place on the grill until pork is cooked through. Serve with the juice. I also used soy sauce on some just to see the difference. Both ways were excellent.
For the sides we had fresh vegetables.
