I spent the last week out of town with Jeff for his work. Now that the girls are grown up I am able to go out of town with Jeff occasionally. I am involved with the Agri life extension and belong to the local club where I am the vice president and treasurer. I enjoy it and attend one meeting a month with our club and one meeting with the area association because I am an officer.
I also attend the Ladies missionary club from the Mathis Baptist church. We meet once a month for a luncheon and to discuss who we are going to help. We also maintain a small food pantry at the church. There are a few of us who crochet hats which a lady sends to Franklin Graham's Samaritans purse where they distribute them. I also crochet hats for other groups.
Anyway, if I don't have any meetings and Jeff has to go out of town I sometimes join him. This past week we went to Plano which is near Dallas. Jeff had work to do there. I spent the time in the hotel room crocheting and doing other crafts. Its boring but I do like to be with Jeff.
I've been working on a fancy baby blanket which I had hoped to enter into the fair but alas, I did not get it done in time as the entries are due tomorrow. Oh well.
Today I am making bone broth. Right now I am roasting the marrow bones. Then when they are good and browned I will add them to the crock pot. I have the vegetable parings I have been saving in the crockpot already. I will add water and 3-4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to the crockpot to allow the goodness from the bones to come out. I will cook this on low for a couple of days. Then I will strain the broth and keep it in the refrigerator. I love cooking with this fresh beef broth. I could can it but I tend to use it fast enough that it isn't necessary.
No bake cookies sound good too. Maybe I will stir up a batch of them today as well.
I pray that all of you who read this are blessed and healthy.
