Waconda Forever

It’s been a week. Had a cold, which in this time of stupid pandemic tricks, is terrifying. But never had a fever, just chills and sweats and general crappiness. So we went to Lake Waconda for my birthday.

Today’s Tart

Chicken Omelettes

So we started saving eggs for our farm stand (fancy name for fridge on porch). But, alas, it took a bit to start getting a clientele. So we were left with a gross of eggs in our fridge. Most of them OK, but I’m… Continue Reading “Chicken Omelettes”
