Can't beet that soup; and feeding other kinds of beasts
Here's our four young ewes Molly, Maggie, Lark, and little Nellie with visiting ram-bo Snorri, eating hay. As you can see there's some kind of strange white stuff on the ground.
Hmmm. Wonder where we've seen that before? Ah. that's right. Only for about five months last winter.
Cold and windy with blowing spindrift out there, I spent much of the day in the shop making a new front door for the porch. I was sneezing the whole time, cold and snotty, so I finally came in to make beet soup.
That should help my cold. And I made Mick-bread.
Mick bread is any hearty bread made by a Mick, best served hot with butter. This has pinhead oatmeal and rye.
