My rabbit had babys! She had 6!
- 2 are tiger striped
- 2 are black
- 2 are a mixture of white, brown, and black
I will try to put some pictures up later!
Today "instead" of math Mom and me made kitchen scrap cookies. Here is a recipe:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 c. cold cooked oatmeal
- 1-1/4 c. flour (using 1 cup WW pastry flour makes a crisper cookie)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. bkg. soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Up to 1 additional cup uncooked oats, rolled or steel cut,
Add at least 1 cup of kitchen scraps like:
- Cup cakes
- Oat meal (with raisins and/or apples optional)
Cream butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Lightly sprinkle flour, salt, soda, and cinnamon. Add to wet ingredients. Mix batter with cooked oatmeal and add-in's. The finished batter should have a semi-stiff consistency, or stay rounded as you drop the teaspoons on the sheet.
Bake at 350* 12-15 minutes on a very lightly greased cookie sheet until the edges are brown.
These could sound very weird but once you take a bite the first one you won’t stop!
Now I have to take some cookies out of the oven!
Deanna and The Yellow Jacket
While we were on lunch break from school we noticed a Yellow Jacket fly into the house. "u-oh a bee," I said. We all held still for a second or two. We thought it had started to charge. "Duck in cover!" I yelled as I ran for the bathroom. After in safety I thought for a second or two. "A good soldier never leaves a man behind!" I said to myself quietly. Slowly I emerged from my hiding place. The horrible yellow jacket was nowhere to be seen... everyone was still... and then in a horrified voice Lydia shouted, "Deanna it's on your shoe!!!!!!!!!" Deanna looked down in horror and screamed the loudest, the most horrefiedest scream you could imagine! All in one motion she jumped, kicked her shoe off and single footedly hopped away into the kitchen. Immediately we all started laughing. When we had fully recovered, springing into action I jumped into the air and landed on the shoe (which the yellow jacket was under and now flattened) "da da!" I said as I took a bow.
