For my sons wedding rehearsal dinner the girls made bars and cookies. I was trying to find a recipe that I have never made before. I reach for The Farm Chicks..."Country Living The Farm Chicks In The Kitchen" cookbook and found a quick recipe to make...nancy's nutmeg coffee cake...and it was out of this world. I did have to substitute pecans for the walnuts because I did not have any on hand.
Life on the homestead is still busy...We bought some blueberry bushes last night and I can't wait until they start producing fruit. We also planted a couple of grape vines last week. Jim will be making a fence of some sort for them to climb on. The asparagus is doing great despite the flooding, and all 50 plants have sprouted. I think we might have gotten a few more because last count there were 51 or 52 plants. Each plant has 2 or more shoots coming out of them. Yippee!!!!!
Today I'm heading out to the raspberry bushes, as I want to get to the ripe ones before the birds do. This year I'm hoping to get enough for a pie. I planted 2 black berry bushes and they are going to produce some berries this year. Another Yippee!!!!!. I hope to get a few more this weekend as I'm sure they will be just about giving them away. My favorite store had some still the other day.
I hope you all have a wonderful day today. I have lots to do on my to do list.
