I knew the minute that we saw them that James would have to have them for his birthday.
And OH they are so loved! My guy is already talking about saving his pennies so that he can order a couple more sets. You know, for "really BIG castles!"
Our girls got a new cedar roost yesterday.
We found it on a walk in the woods yesterday and lugged it all the way home. It was most assuredly worth it, as they are clearly and undeniably a little giddy with joy over it. They hop on, hop off, hop on, hop off. If chickens could giggle, I know they would. I know it.
That, plus squash from grandmother's garden meant a really yummy dinner!
Cut it into thinnish, short pieces and toss it with pasta sauce, a little chopped onion, some mozzarella and some cooked italian sausage (we used three links, with the casings taken off). Pop it in a 350 degree the oven for 25 minutes or so, then top it with more cheese and bake until the cheese is melted and the squash is soft.
My guys (who are pretty picky about veggies) LOVED it. They swore that it tasted like a pasta dish.
