With eggs in mind, I am very conscious that we need to be paying more respect to the humble egg. We have them at our disposal and it should play a bigger part in our journey to self-sufficiency that it has. Therefore I shall be making more of an effort to have them as the main ingredient in at least 1 evening meal starting next week. Wednesday’s meal will be shrimp egg foo young. I had this many years ago and it was delicious but I’ve never had one since. I’ll also be using them more in my day to day life, eggs for breakfast or as an ingredient. I use a fair few, but shall give them more stage time!
Now to the goose. As per a previous post, we are very surprised to have 3 geese eggs hiding in the shed. I wasn’t expecting them at this time of the year, and hadn’t researched something else to do with them (yes, they’re just eggs, I know). Last year I made lemon cake and it was delicious. We have enough sweet food in to feed an army and I am cutting back on sugar intake for a while, so cake didn’t appeal to me. I will spend some time looking for other people’s suggestions, so if you have any, please shout up.
Today, Ste and my Dad have been putting a greenhouse frame together and covered it in mesh. This is going to be used as a fruit cage this coming year. It is very light to lift so I can see it lending itself to multiple jobs.
Grace and I collected the soil from the ever growing mole hills and put it into one of the new beds. It only took 20 mins and we may as well see the silver lining in it.
I put together one of my Christmas presents which is a seed organiser. I will be filling this tomorrow.
The next door neighbours children have spent the afternoon here and seem to have enjoyed it. I fed them tea after giving them a couple of hours with the ponies.
