Lesson 1168 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

 I’ll fix it up there, then I’ll bring it back here. Grinch



I know that I already put a post up for the day but I wanted to end the week as I always do, with a round-up of what’s happened and what’s to come.

What’s happened:

I didn’t make the NaNoWriMo goal this year (I don’t blame my time management skills, I blame the storm that knocked out electricity for 3 days) but in thinking about my writing, I designed a few projects to move forward on. I wrote about it on the New Hampshire Writers Network blog.

Marc has been out of town, (which is part of the reason why a recipe post went up this morning instead of this one – who can keep track of the days when you are chauffeuring, cooking, and managing for an army of kids?) He returns tonight. Hopefully by the time he gets home, we can get the Christmas tree looking a little better.


(that beer can is actually a Budweiser ornament from the Bud brewing plant in our town.)

Last weekend we were able to get the kids’ annual photo with Santa. If we did nothing else this holiday season, I’d be happy with just this.


Heads up: When I took Trevor back to college in Vermont last Sunday, I stopped by the King Arthur Flour store. I don’t know if they sell it in retail stores, but their Gingerbread Scones mix is out of this world. While baking, they made the entire house smell like Christmas. The scones have a deep, adult ginger taste and were even filled with tiny bits of crystallized ginger. I don’t know if these are only out for the holidays, but if you can find them, give them a try – you won’t be sorry.

This weekend, I’ll be making the King Arthur Pecan shortbread bars (I was supposed to make them for Thanksgiving but our lack of electricity forced me into other plans.)
What’s coming:

Although I’m loving the win-win-win recipe posts, don’t worry, chickens are coming back. Next week in addition to a few recipe posts, I’ll post some answers to questions people have recently asked about chickens.

I’ll show you some chicken cup warmers that a friend’s aunt made for her church fundraiser. ADORABLE!

And I’ll also put up some holiday posts – because ‘tis the season.

Until then, enjoy – Be safe, I’ll see you all next week.

    I live waaaaay north in VT. Every time we come down to Hanover or Norwich (check out Nordic Skating on Lake Morey) we hit King Arthur. One of my favourite places – and frugal shoppers that we are, we rush to see if there is any day-old bread. Still tastes wonderful and bargain price. Keep it a secret though. Ditto for their sale rack in the corner!!

      Oh yes, I already spied with my little eye that sales rack in the corner. The mixes are not cheap, but boy are they good!

    So glad to hear you will resume the chicken posts next week. I’m just not into the vegan food recipes. I really do miss the chicken updates – especially dealing with the cold winter weather (Michigan). Thanks!!
