Today's post will be short and sweet...
as it is too hard to type with the ugly finger.
I had several requests for a recipe for Amanda's "braided" dinner.
She did not use a recipe for this dinner, sadly.
Basically, she made a whole wheat bread recipe, let it rise, punched it down
and rolled it out.
Then she filled it with cooked chicken, parsnips, sweet potatoes(from last summer's garden)
and chard ribs
in a zesty honey mustard sauce that she created.
Slits cut in the two outer thirds of the rolled out dough were braided back across
the center, covering the filling.
Baked til golden brown.
Yesterday, I mixed up some sweet yeast dough
let it rise, rolled it out...
These (link here to recipe).
I frosted them with a cream cheese frosting.
As for Myrtle (on left), no babies yet.
She is huge and the babies are moving all over the place.
Any day now....
Chloe seems to be doing fine with respect to her sore foot.
She is barely limping now.
And.... pavilion construction is complete.
It will be stained a walnut brown once warmer weather has arrived.
Sorry for the brevity of this post.
I will be back to snuff once the throbbing has left my finger.
