Coffee..... with the new calf, my morning routine LITTERALLY runs on coffee for the next couple of weeks.
3:30 alarm #1 goes off
3:35 alarm #2 goes off = dirty barn clothes over PJs - supply tote in hand - pre-tied barn boots on - hit the brewer button and head out the door
4:30 alarm #3 goes off to warn me I'm running out of time
4:45 back in the house, pour 2nd cup & start getting ready for work
5:30 pour 3rd cup and head for the car
6:30 clock in - another cup... or maybe tea
4:00 head home - separate cow & calf
6:30 milk again, store milk, clean everything & set up to do it all over again in 7hrs
🤗

BUT!!!! As of yesterday - I'm getting FRESH CREAM in that coffee :weee

Most days that makes it ALL worthwhile! Almost :lol:

My goats can make me crazy!! But I'm not giving it up. Job, maybe. Being able to adjust work times is my ONLY salvation.

I'm envious of that cream to make butter! :drool:old

I put a number of eggs in the container that came with the immersion blender and mix them up, trying not to get them frothy, then pour into silicone muffin cups in a muffin pan. Then into the freezer. Once frozen, I pop them out and put them in freezer storage bags. Works well unless you want breakfast sunny side up, over easy or soft or hard boiled ;)
Almost what I did. Silicone muffin "tin" - into the freezer, then vacuum sealed individually and 2 to a pack. Not blended. Cheese cake is in the oven - some of the yolks were a wee bit firm. But they processed like normal. Desert tonight should be good - it's a simple recipe and no crust either.

I'm finding that my time is somehow much more limited this time around. Cheese is going to be out of the question for the foreseeable future.. butter once a week if I'm lucky. I'm making connections with friends who do a lot of baking to see who wants to trade jars & lids for pressure canned milk to bake with.
Now that I'm thinking about it.... I wonder how canned milk would do in cream sauces and soups...?
DANG!!! 😫Now I've got ANOTHER thing to try and sooo little time to fool with it😩

Back in for a short bit. Got the sheep all set out in the corral, Set up search areas for the detection students. All going according to plan. Last minute check of email - someone's sick thinks it's the flu, two less dogs. Then a text another has a migraine - less another two dogs. Sigh. Ah - but the bright side, I can start decorating for Christmas!
AND ..... that cheese cake I made yesterday AWESOME :drool!! Only five ingredients - eggs, sugar, heavy cream, cream cheese, and a tiny bit of flour. No fussy crust to deal with. Super creamy inside. Light, but once you finish a small piece you're full. The eggs that I froze worked GREAT!!! I've got more for Christmas baking - because we all know the chickens go on laying vacation just in time for Christmas cookie baking sessions :barnie
Finish up my tea and then on to the remaining detection lessons.

I've tried every way anyone has suggested and the canned milk just isn't good to taste. Freeze it! You may have better luck with cow milk, I have goats. Let us know. Another with goats has reported little success. :idunno we don't know the magic

Good Morning!
My coffee maker has decided to go on strike-I think it's related to the power outage we had yesterday from the wind and rain storm we had. If this is how the power is gonna go, I'm going to have to invest in more candles and lanterns. I never mind a good power outage, but reading by phone light isn't optimal for my aging eyes. I'm going to take the darned thing apart later, this morning I strained hot water through coffee grounds. It was not as good, but caffeine is the goal, and I'm very goal oriented in the morning. :lol:

Work was so slow yesterday, so we got a lot of holiday prep done-putting candy canes on spikes, pricing new plants, taking out everything Christmasy and decorating the shop. It looks like the elves were busy, but I love this time of year, and every Christmas light and sparkly ornament makes me happy. :weee

I'm starting my newest project, microgreens. I have gained some weight since last year, and I will admit-I eat garbage foods,:hide so in an attempt to get healthier, I'm going to grow the microgreens-I find them easier on my system than full grown vegetables. Life without a gall bladder is complicated! I'm going to grow my own since around here in bougie-land (as my kids call it) one small package will go for 5-10 dollars and I can't justify spending money on something I can grow myself.

Well, off the strain some more caffeinated goodness!
