Butter and English Muffins

     For some time now I have wanted to make my own butter- It's an easy process, and it just seemed like a good idea. The only thing that was holding me up was the idea that if I made butter, I better have something damn good to put it on! I decided on english muffins. First off, they also looked easy, and secondly, I love english muffins! 

    Other than the fact that I had to completely start the english muffins over ( because I used yeast that was a year and a month old, not just a month!) everything went very smooth, and I will most definitely do it again.

   I was on a bit of a baking spree this week and also made granola and some blueberry-raspberry cream cheese pastries.

Chaco hates the horseflies.
   The garden is also going pretty well right now. I have caught up on all of the weeding- I had a pretty huge crop of crab grass this year! My potatoes look pretty sorry due to the bug damage, but the tubers themselves are looking great. The chickens are also getting along just fine!


  1. I am very envious of your chicken utopia!

  2. Ha! It is hardly a chicken utopia- but they do all tolerate each other. We had a bloodied rear end situation a while back, but it all worked out. Some of them still peck each other, but it is not so hard, and no pulling feathers. I am getting super anxious for eggs now!
