So we are as excited as they are that we won't have to follow a schedule for a while. Joe and the boys have already planned to go fishing all day tomorrow. Susan's boyfriend Mose will go with them and Susan is thinking about going too. She said bluegill fishing is fun!
We are trying to get all the work caught up around here so we will have more free time next week. After all, a vacation shouldn't be spent working at home.
Last Sunday evening we were invited to one of our church family's house for supper. We were served a delicious meal of barbecued chicken, potato casserole, green beans, tossed salad, cake, fruit salt, chocolate pudding, ice cream, chips, popcorn, punch and coffee. They live right beside a river so we saw a lot of canoes go by.
Next month we have 100 baby chicks coming. Half are for laying and the other 50 are broilers which we will raise for meat.
I made strawberry pie this weekend so I'll share the recipe.
3 /4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1 3-ounce strawberry gelatin
4 cups sliced, fresh strawberries
Mix sugar, cornstarch and water until smooth. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin until dissolved. Arrange strawberries in pre-baked pie crust. Pour mixture over berries. Refrigerate until set. This pie freezes well too.
