Of Lambs and Egg Noodles

We have lambs! Lots and lots of lambs! They are so cute! If you can, you just have to come by to watch them jump and run. It’s so much fun! New little sheep are wonderful.

New Adventure
Tomorrow we will be attending our first farmer’s market. Not quite sure what to expect. The river front in Burlington is flooded so it is being held at the train depot. Yesterday it looked like the weather would be awful on Thursday, but tonight it looks like we’ll have decent weather tomorrow afternoon. We had decided we were going no matter what this year. The Burlington farmer’s market is one of the biggest in the area. We figure even if we don’t make much, the networking we do will be invaluable. BTW, if you want to come, it is held from 5-8pm every Thursday.

On the Craft Table
I’m still working on signs, but if I can get the little Houdini to stay there, I’ll have a little lamb that I am bottle feeding under the craft table. Petting will be encouraged! Don’t worry! I’ll have baby wipes and Avon hand sanitizer available to wash little hands!

Grama Sue’s Spicy Egg Noodles

My dear mother-in-love taught me how to make egg noodles before my youngest was born. Her recipe was the standard egg, flour and salt mixture rolled as thin as possible. Being the creative person that I am, I have a hard time following a recipe. Sometimes this actually results in something good J These are unique noodles that people rave over. I was in a hurry one day and didn’t roll them out to well, but my kids liked them so much that I usually cook them up thick without drying. My family prefers these noodles that way, but they don’t dry well unless they are fairly thin.

4 eggs
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. chili powder
Flour to make a soft dough

Mix eggs, salt, pepper and chili power. Add about ½ cup of flour at a time until you have a soft dough. Roll to desired thickness. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Boil or dry. Serves 4.

God Bless You All!

Signs Are Up

Here’s the new signs! Look for them on Hwy 96 at the Nauvoo-Colusa School and at the radio tower a couple of miles north of the school. They will get you there. We’ve changed our hours so we can go to some farmer’s markets and I’ve got time to clean my house for church on Sunday! We’ll be open rain or shine! If the big door isn’t open, there’s a regular door on the south side, just come on around and come in!

The whole garage has been rearranged from last year. Grampa Tom is very excited about his new tool section and I have a craft table set up so I can putter while I’m out there. I still have some more signs to make, so that’s what I’ll be working on this weekend. I’ll try to let you know what I’m planning to work on each weekend so you can come see what I’m doing if you want. I’ll try to post some pictures too.
