The OLD chickens were pleased that Pinot didn't eat his mince, in fact they are always pleased when the cats go home as they get fed the cat nuts that are left in the bowl.
The chooks are old and not laying eggs so we are buying eggs at the moment - They are very old girls and may well and truly be past laying any eggs - I'm wondering if we might get one or two eggs as their oh what are they called thingy my gigs (I've done too much study and my brain is overloaded) are turning a nice red again - which is a good sign chickens will lay
Pinot's family went skiing today
Pinot went feather fishing and was a pro! Hope his family were pro skiing too!
Oh don't worry that Pinot didn't eat his mince he ate ALL of his HUGE bowl of cat nuts. Science diet oral care so he will have good shiny fangs and a full tummy - all the better to feather fish with!
both fires were roaring keeping us nice and warm today
the perfect weather for soup
I'm not a recipe type cook - more mm a taste as go cook.
6 cloves garlic (we like garlic)
4 dried chillies from last years harvest seeds removed
2 freshly picked stalks of lemon grass finely chopped
Pumpkin about 1/2 a crown pumpkin I used
some water to cook it all in - enough to just cover it
Once cooked add 1 tin of unsweetened organic coconut milk and heat through
add chopped up parsley or coriander (I've only got parsley in garden at mo so that is what we had)
salt n pepper to taste
Honest it is soo yum!
