From the mind of Rachel

We are FINALLY cleaning out our school shelves.  We like to wait till it seems like an insurmountable task.  Anywho, in looking thru an old (VERY old) notebook we found this from a literature lesson of Rachel’s when she was in 5th grade (she is 16 now).  The assignment was to read a story called A Boy and A Man and write an epilogue.  Here is her work:

Rudi went on to become a professional mountain climber in Alaska.  He and Captain Winter even attempted to climb Mt. Hood in Washington but failed miserably due to a freak accident involving a mountain elk and a cigarette lighter.  Rudi married an archeologist by the name of Trish four years later.  They had three beautiful children before Rudi quit his dangerous job in favor of a small cubicle at a q-tip company.  He died in a car wreck at age 33.

I thoroughly enjoyed finding it! I think her weird sense of humor was already quite developed.

Cooking Classes!

I am signed up to teach my first cooking class in just 4 short weeks!  I am really excited.  You all know I have had trouble focusing lately.  Can’t seem to find my groove back.  So this is a start maybe.   Biscuit Making 101 is the first of what I hope will be many installments.

I plan to demonstrate 3 variations of my recipe – using lard, shortening and butter.  Everyone has different tastes but the technique is what throws people.  Personally I am not going the trouble unless I make them with lard and White Lily Self Rising flour…but that’s just me.

Each participant will receive a recipe booklet, hands on instructions, a handcrafted pasty cloth (made by moi!) and a 2 pound bag of White Lily Self Rising flour…oh and a full belly!

Sounds like fun huh???

Oh – Husband made it home safe and sound…a bit jet lagged but happy to be here!  And we are happy to have him home!
