My new toy

Tuesday, October 23, 2012
Well I was going to get my Kitchen-aid Mixer the first of the month but my son got it for me this last weekend. I have used it everyday since. Now that I have it I hope that the new don't wear out. So far I have made Mash Potatoes, Chocolate Chip cookies, Mixed up a batch of Pancake mix and beat eggs for scrambled eggs. The eggs were great and it saved my arm. Today we are going to make a batch of BBQ sauce and a loaf or two of bread or rolls. This is the only way that I am really going to get to know how to use it right. I am very thankful that my son got this for me, for I am was build vertically challenge and mixing stuff on the counter is a challenge for me to do by hand. I love to bake so now that I have a good stove and the mixer I will be baking away.
The chickens are doing good and I am getting up to 12 eggs a day now. I have at least two chickens that are laying green eggs and that is making me happy. The last clutch of chicks that Honey brooded should be laying sometime the first of next year. Look like my son got at least three roosters and 4 hens out of his hatch. Now that the weather is cooling down it will be Spring before I hatch any more. i might have to do a clutch for my nephews girl friend since she lost all her chickens to dogs.
We are going to have to get  the fence fixed so that we can get to cow and a goat or two. We are going to have to build a pig pen too. With the  price of meat going up we are better off just growing our own, for the cost is not that much more and the quality of meat it so much better.
My son got an X-box with kinnect and we got a game that really gets me moving so I might start to lose some weight. This is a good thing since I found out that my cholesterol is a bit high and I have a thyroid problem and am now on meds for that. Will have to go back to the docs in about 6 weeks for a check up to make sure everything is working fine.
