odd barn
can you smell it?

keeping busy as a beaver

We have been having tomatoes coming out of our ears, we have not only eaten them everyday, I've also made over 40 pints of tomato sauce and more should be ripening in about a week, so I'll be busy again canning more sauce.


I made a tasty breakfast over the weekend, Pannukakku is a Finnish ovenbaked pancake.  Look how yellow it looks, that is because I use farm fresh eggs from a neighbor down the road.  We haven't had chickens for a while and I'm so excited that we possibly will be getting chickens again this spring.

It's easy peasy and super tasty with real butter and pure maple syrup :)


4 T. butter or margarine

4 eggs

1 cup flour

1 cup milk

¼ tsp. salt

1 tsp. vanilla


Melt butter in 9x13 pan in oven.  Beat eggs, flour, milk, salt and vanilla and pour in pan.  Sprinkle with cinnamon.  Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned.


The barn is coming along great, the siding is going up and the cupola is started.  I can't wait to show you the cupola when it's all done, there is something awesome we're going to do with it and I can't wait to show you.

Barn boards

We had company over the Labor Day weekend.


The day is not over yet and I'm off now to help paint some barn boards.
