I ran into a spice mix a week or so ago in an article I read, it sounded interesting and I thought I would give it a try. It is a blend of Cardamom, Cinnamon, Cloves, Coriander, Cumin and black pepper, called Garam Masala
It is very good on sauted carrots, and I added it to muffins tonight.
My question.... what other ways can this be used? if you use it, how?
One of the quick/easy desserts for our family is a recipe called
Norwegian Apple Pie
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law between 40 - 50 yrs ago. (wow, writing that seems like such a long time, yet living is doesn't seem that long). Anyway, I think she got it from 1 of 2 publications that she read either Capper's Weekly or Prevention
The recipe I have gives only the amounts of ingredients, there is no method and I was wondering if anyone else makes this.
As you can see this has been well used.
It makes a really nice crusty top and a custardy inside with no pastry crust.
If anyone recognizes this recipe I would appreciate any info you have for me.
This one is a computer question
Several days ago I downloaded a rather large file labeled Lace_for_manual_sock_machines.
I don't recall the MB but it was large. I have a 2019 HP Chromebook X2. for the next couple of days, I was constantly getting a notification that it was syncing the file.
It got to the point that I deleted the file hopeing it would stop trying to sync.
It still wanted to sync and was constantly giving me that notification
I tried shutting down and leaving it over night and all the next day before powering up again and I am still getting this notification.
when files are deleted on this machine they are deleted permanently so it isn't trying to sync the file in the recycle bin.
If anyone has any help to get it to stop trying to sync I would appreciate it.
Questions are done.
on one of my previous posts I took a photo at dusk of the wind break canvas that I had put up on my chicken pen. I thought I would take a couple better photos and show you what I was talking about.
The chickens have been enjoying being outside even in the chilly weather as long as they are out of the wind. Their nice fluffy down coats hold body heat well, as long as the wind isn't blowing up their fluffybuts
Now a rant
The government helps farmers cover the costs of complying with their regulations. When you are able to sign up some land for the program Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), they require you to seed the land with a perrenial cover crop - grasses or others. Once you turn in your paperwork, they will repay some of your expenses to plant the seed. In other years we have gotten our reimbusements within a month, 2 at the most.
This year we were able to sign up some land along the sides of a creek to help stop erosion. We were able to get the parcel planted to the required seed mix this past spring. And had the paperwork returned for the reimbursement by June of this year. We waited several weeks, then started calling every month or so to see how their paperwork to release the money was getting done. We were told every time that the paperwork was backlogged, or that the person working on it was behind, or the person was new...... well, this morning we were told that the system has been shut down in Washington and has been for over 2 weeks and they don't know when it will be opened.
Due to the China trade tarrif wars, grain markets have been down, and because of the crazy cool, wet weather, harvest has not yet been finished.
We have bills to pay, with less income available, and the reimbusement payment would help.
I contacted both state senators and our representative by email, but have not yet received a reply.
Will have to wait some more I guess.
