Home grown really does taste better. Yesterday I had french toast with our hens eggs and topped it with our home grown tomatoes…. Super YUMMMM!!
I am just loving this!!! Today Andrew and I attended our first of ten cooking classes at Jamie’s Ministry of Food – Ipswich. OH MY GOODNESS…. what great FUN!! There was eleven lovely people in our class both local and from Brisbane. Our teacher Louise and the center manager Denalla are just beautiful. This week was all about the EGG!! It was back to the basics but still full of tips and tricks to help any level of home cook. Andrew did an amazing job. He was so careful to follow instructions correctly and his results were better than mine!!!
Next week is Leek and Potato soup …..mmmmm!
Linking up with Paisley Jade – Things I am loving
Our lovely ladies Honda, Penny Penny, Woof and Buzz are all laying! We have had so many eggs we have been giving them away.
I never knew that I would love our girls so much. But they have really become family pets. They all have their own little personalities. Ben and I visit them for cuddles. Don’t worry I am well aware of how ridiculous I sound!!
Joseph and Baby Tom reporting – ‘STILL no eggs…… just poo!!’
Since we live on a “property” now, we thought that we ought to put on some “stock”. We now have two chickens named Honda and Penny Penny.
First we had to assemble the chook pen. All hands on deck – thanks to Grandad George and Nanny. We also purchased our feed and water containers.
Second job was site preparation. We fenced off a corner about 20m x 10m. Thanks to Grandad and Gamma for lending a hand.
Then, we just added chickens. Buying chickens is apparently like buying eggs, prepackaged in a convenience box. We got our red hens from Stocks Produce, just around the corner from our place and the chook pen from Risson Produce in Ipswich. We are also going to add four Silkies when we can find some.
Now with a little love and care we wait for the magical first egg. Ben checks everyday. So far the reports have been “No Eggs Mum, just poo!”
