Busy, Busy, Busy!

This week Anna and I have been very busy getting ready for the Fall Frolic. It’s already a week away! Here are a few of our projects:

If you want to see more, you will have to come on Saturday, November 14, from 9am-3pm at Cornerstone Church.

It has been very nice this week! The chickens are loving it and the egg production has increased! Eight in one day! Some of them are jumbos too! Yesterday when we let them out I saw the hawk flying in the sky, so we started to put them in, by the time we had them in the enclosure, the hawk had come down to just over the tree tops! They were able to get out again later that evening, but we kept a close eye on them!

One of my favorite breakfasts is plantain waffles or pancakes. Here is the recipe:

Plantain Waffles

Plantain Waffles

2 large plantains

4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

pinch of salt

2 tablespoons of butter or coconut butter

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Mix all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If the batter is to thick (it will pour kind of in clumps) add a little bit of water until it is easy to pour. For waffles, you can heat a Belgian waffle iron and make delicious waffles, or for pancakes, simply pour into a pre-heated pan on low heat (I usually put my pan on 2). I like waffles (or pancakes) with one of the following: maple syrup, peanut butter, honey, or maple cream.

Last Saturday we took Rontu over to a fellow puppy raiser’s house. She had a fenced-in play area were we could let Rontu off leash. Her puppy, Bodie, joined in the fun!

They had blast and after the play time we had a tired puppy!

Today marks the beginning of a project that I have started with Anna, Zachary Pierpont, and Josiah Pierpont. We are starting a 365 photos in a year project, were we all take one photo a day and share it with each other on Instagram. If you would like to follow my photos, just let me know and I can get you my Instagram name. I am hoping to improve my photography skills through this project.

Also, look for project tutorials in the coming blog posts. I am hoping to post a couple tutorials on all the crafts we enjoy doing.

Have a great week!

  1. Loved getting a sneak preview of your craft fair items. Grampa wants to know if the donut smells as good as it looks. Hope you have a good turnout. Wish we could be there. But will enjoy your photos. Thanks!!

  2. Those waffles look delicious! I’ll have to get some plantains to try them out myself! Can you share your pumpkin pie bar recipe? Those look great as well!
