Here they are yesterday. Maddie had just been licking Sonja’s neck, but I missed that photo.
Today we gave them their immunizations, and it was less peaceful. After much convincing they went into the barn and then each one into a pen. There they were tied to a post and the shots given. Sonja managed to step on my left foot and kick my right ankle in the process. My foot is fine, but my ankle sure hurts. They are now fine again, back in the pasture. As Tom said during this “Don’t you love farming?”
My mom got me a great medieval cookbook for Christmas.
And we have been watching one season of Game of Thrones each month in anticipation of the new season starting in April. We are on season 5. So I decided to combine the two last Sunday.
I made two pottages for dinner. I made Buknade, a chicken, herb and egg one. And a pea pottage. Here they are cooking,
And here they are served
Tom did not try them. I thought they were good. Comforting but not spicy.
I also made a medieval custard.
There are saffron strands in it but no sweetener. I added our blueberries on top.
It was nice but again Tom was not a fan. But it felt medieval to me which was perfect for two episodes of GOT.
