I got a little package of fabric from my sister in law recently. A small piece of this chicken fabric was included Isn't it perfect? It just makes me smile,
maybe because I am continually amused by the antics of our chickens. These girls discovered a cucumber hiding under all those leaves and proceeded to have a feast of it. If they can get to it - it's theirs!
I made an impossible pie the other day. This one is coconut. Do you remember they were all the rage years ago? What's not to like - you just mix everything together, pour it in a pie pan and bake. Supposedly it makes its own crust, and it does sort of, but it's not much of a crust. Anyway, it's still mighty good! Here's the recipe if you want to try it:
IMPOSSIBLE COCONUT CUSTARD PIE
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup self-rising flour
2 cups milk
14 oz. shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat eggs thoroughly in mixer. Add melted butter, sugar, flour and milk. Beat until well blended. Stir in coconut and vanilla. Pour into two 8-inch ungreased pie pans. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes. Cool and cut.
The original recipe did not call for that much coconut, but we like a lot, and it did not hurt it one little bit! Comfort food.
This little quilt has now had borders added to make it a reasonable size and it has been quilted since this picture was taken. I just need to get the binding sewn onto it.
I've been absent from my blog for a bit. We've had some serious health issues with Miss Ru. She's not out of the woods yet, but she is improving daily. Thank God! He is so faithful. I cannot imagine having to live my life without the love and care of the Lord.
I hope you've had lots of good times since I last heard from you. I fully expect us all to have many more!
Hugs and kisses,
