Easter Robber?

I am wondering if she was going to steal our eggs. We are in the old trailer that Tom is fixing up off screen to the right. I am thinking he noticed us in there and told her. They seemed to leave in a hurry and hit our new egg sign leaving. Afterwards we noticed that the egg cartons had been rearranged and the produce stand and fridge reeked of cigarette smoke. But at least I wished them a Happy Easter.

So what do you think? Thwarted Easter egg robbers or not?

“Roast” Chicken in the Instant Pot

This recipe was in our Skagit Valley Herald well over one year ago.  I clipped it out and today made a farm meal with it, using our chicken and our peas.  Here is the chicken coming out of the broiler and cut into the breast.

And here is my meal.

It was great.  The chicken had a little spice to it even though I did not eat any skin.  We did not make or have hot sauce with it, but it was still flavorful.  Tom says it was pretty good, so that is saying a lot!
