Good Morning From Prosperine

Still on baby watch. No Buffy babies yet.

Surprisingly housetraining DD is going really well. She goes to the door and paws when she wants out. No messes since the first day she arrived.

Our weather today is back within normal temp range for this time of year. Yesterday was in the upper 60's with storms passing through all day. It was a bit unnerving, severe thunderstorm warnings, tornado warnings and flash flood warnings in winter. They covered our area all day long.

In that type of weather with heavy cloud cover we are unable to pick up satellite service. I had the radio on most of the day listening for updates while I busied myself in the kitchen, putting away Christmas dishes, leftovers for the freezer and prepping a few casseroles for the upcoming week.

Thought I would post a family favorite recipe for using up left over turkey

Mom’s Turkey Chow Mien
1 cup minced celery
1 large chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter

Combine with:
2 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
2 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup mushrooms
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup slivered almonds
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Top with chow mien noodles, bake at 300 degrees for one hour.

From winter kidding this time last year...these are a few of the baby pics

Oh, Jama!! Reading that you are still waiting for Buffy to kid made me think of the old saying, "A watched doe...," sort of like a watched pot never boils! She'll catch you off guard, no doubt. :)

Buffy hasn't kidded yet? I hope she does while the weather is nice for you. Loved the pictures! Such pretty kids! I love that black and white paint, was it a girl or a boy? Talia has black "mini-socks" right above her hooves, but she isn't anything that could be called a paint. Joker has a black patch on his stomach and a bit of black above each hoof so I hope he will give me one of those pretty black and white babies like that next year!
