    A nice warm bowl of oatmeal with homemade yogurt on top. And they gave us 4 gorgeous eggs in return.

    They've given us so many that we passed 2 dozen on to the local food bank today...it's always short on protein items so we're really glad to be able to share our "wealth"

    First thing when it was chilly, a bowl of warm cooked pintos with some yogurt, later in the day: trimmings from my canning session: stewing beef. They about took off my fingers before I got the dish set down, LOL
