Chicken Eggspert (2/19)



  1. No apologies needed. I have looked to and cannot find it. Martha is just so cute, love her sweet smile and gentle ways. Thanks for the reply
  2. We just got Mary Berry's baking show on our public station. One of the bakers, Martha, made Caramilized Onion and Goat's Cheese Sandwich Biscuits that looked yummy. I have tried to find the recipe but have had no luck. Does anyone have that recipe, please. Love the show, my daughter and I look forward to watching it each week.
  3. It is 98 F here in Dodge City, Kansas. High 90's all week with Sat 100.
  4. I do not remember if I told this forum about a book my brother wrote, of course I like it, but thought some might be interested to read it. It can be purchased on amazon. It is called The Ledger, by Lloyd Holm. Check it out, you may enjoy it too.
  5. When I had my go run I would place a few vanilla car fresheners under the omlet cover. It really kept the fly population down.
  6. Thanks for this wonderful article. I just shared it with my niece who is/has gotten chickens. I was telling her not to wash her eggs once they started to lay and now this does the job for me. You Brits are far wiser than some of us, we need to listen more.
  7. I agree too with all the advise that has been given. It is a difficult thing to handle, after all we were taught to honor our mothers and fathers. My father was very much the same way and it took me until I was in my 50's to realize that there was nothing I could do or say that would change things. I finally just let it go. I would send him cards on special days and an occasional 'thinking of you' card or one I thought was funny. That helped our relationship over time but I never let my guard down. Just remember it really is not you that is the problem.
  8. This is just wonderful and so easy to make. Hope you all enjoy it. Creamy Cauliflower Sauce 8 large cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons butter 5-6 cups cauliflower florets (I used a large cauliflower, you can adjust the liquid to size you use) 6-7 cups vegetable broth, chicken broth or water 1 teaspoon of salt (more or less to taste) 1/2 teaspoon pepper (more or less to taste) 1/2 cup milk 1.Garlic: Saute the minced garlic with the butter in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Cook for several minutes or until the garlic is soft and fragrant but not browned 2. Cauliflower. Bring the water or broth to a boil in a large pot. Add the cauliflower and cook, covered for 7-10 minutes or until the cauliflower is fork tender. Do not drain. 3. Puree. Use a slotted spoon tio transfer the cauliflower pieces to the blender. Add 1/2 to 1 cup cooking liquid, sautéed garlic, salt, pepper and milk. Blend or puree for several minutes until the sauce is very smooth, adding more cooking liquid or milk depending on how thick you want the sauce. Serve hot. If the sauce starts to look dry, add a few drops of water, milk, or olive oil. Notes: the author stated she adds a bit of olive oil for the flavor and to help keep the sauce really smooth. Several other readers have mentioned that they really liked to add parmesan cheese as well.
  9. Just thought I would post this again since my dear friend died. She was 88 years old and I will miss her very much. Each Christmas as I make this cake I will think of her. I am always tempted to make two of these so I do not have to share and I can have one all to myself.
  10. Garth took a break to be a stay at home dad to his girls. He was on Jay Leno and talked about it.
  11. Thanks for that - that's really interesting as I thought that the term 'trimming' was American in origin. Shows how wrong you can be! It may very well be American but my family has always said decorate the tree or decorate the house for Christmas. I asked my daughter was she would tell people she was doing as she put ornaments on the tree and she replied "that I was decorating the tree". I told her why I asked and she said she has heard people say trimming too. Oh well, interesting none the less.
  12. I am American and we say decorate the tree. Trim the tree sounds way too formal.
  13. I just have to tell you again how much I love this picture! I love everything about it, it is the best chicken picture I have seen all year. Hope Santa brings those girls a lovely present for under that tree. Merry Christmas.
  14. Oh the weather outside is frightful but the tree is so delightful! That would make a nice Christmas card. Love the pic.
  15. Welcome, I am sure you will find all your questions answered quickly on this site, people are very welcoming and helpful. I was in Michigan but have moved to Dodge City, Kansas and they do not allow chickens. I had a go and just loved it. I have had to sell it and the new owners love it too. I am sure you will enjoy keeping chickens, they make wonderful pets. Good luck!
