At the Coop Chicken Update

DSC_0003 3

Hello there,

I just made a trip out to the coop to give the girls a snack.  Fruits and veggies that are a bit soft for Russ and I go out to the coop.  Never fails, they are all waiting at the gate for me.  It’s like having a dog happy to see you, but not .. . . . really they want what you have in your hand.

DSC_0001

Russ gets the biggest kick out of me chopping up things for the chickens.  They are very capable of chopping stuff up for themselves,  it just makes me feel better, lol.

DSC_0007

Tried to no avail getting a picture of them with a piece of fruit in their beaks, but no they give you the other end every single time.

DSC_0015

As for the two chicks, well they are no longer considered chicks.  They are now considered pullets (hens that haven’t laid yet).  We could be wrong and they might be roosters.  Actually, we are guessing  that the one on the right is a rooster.  The tail feathers on that one are sure sticking up pretty high.  But, what do we know we have never had a rooster before.  Time will tell.

Anyway, they are still trying to fit into the flock.  It will be a while before they find their permanent place in the pecking order.  They are at the bottom now, no place to go but up, right?  The past few weeks they have just been trying to stay off the big girls radar.  They sleep in a corner in the coop instead of on the roosting bars with the other girls.  They have each other and that seems okay with them.  :)

Our grand daughter, Hailie Jade named the small one with the crumpled foot Joe Joe, Josephine if it’s a hen.   No name yet for the one on the right.  Suggestions are always welcome.  Names that could be used for both a girl and boy are especially welcome.

So that’s the scoop at the coop.

Have a terrific Monday!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!

Freezer Apple Pie Filling and Instant Oatmeal Packets

DSC_0001

Hello there,

I’m back in the kitchen and I thought I would share what I have been up to.

I was at the our little grocery store yesterday and I cannot resist stopping at their clearance fruit and veggie bin.  Does your store have one?

Our store always have these great bags of apples that may have a bruise or two for $2 for a 5 lb bag.  Now that’s cheap for apples.   I don’t care about any bruises since I use them to make apple pie filling or apple sauce with.   Also, I put my apple pie filling in freezer bags and freeze it.  This is done with a smile on my face knowing there is no added preservatives.

So here is how to freeze Apple Pie Filling:

DSC_0003

If you are going to be processing a lot of apples you can peel, core and slice them thin by hand or invest in an apple peeler/corer/slicer.    You can peel, core and slice an apple with one of these in just seconds.  I got mine from Amazon.

So after you get your apples peeled, cored and sliced, put 7-8 cups of apples in a gallon freezer bag.  Put 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in the bag and shake it up.  The lemon juice keeps your apples from turning brown.

Next, put the following in the bag:

1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon Cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg.

Seal and shake the bag coating the apples.

Lastly, cut up into chunks 2 tablespoons of butter and add it to the bag.

Squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible, seal and put it in the freezer.  :)  I lay mine flat so they take up less space in the freezer.

To Cook:  Remove bag from the freezer and lay on the counter for about an hour to 45 minutes to defrost or in the refrigerator overnight.  Squish the bag to mix well and dump into a pie shell.  Either cover with a top crust and flute the edges or add a crumb topping.  Bake as you would any normal apple pie.  I bake mine at 350 degrees for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Left over apple slices:

DSC_0004

Any left over apple slice get put in my dehydrator and dried.  We love to chop these dried apples up to put in our home made oatmeal packets (below).  Yep, I have all the kitchen toys, lol.

********************************************************

Instant Oatmeal Packets

DSC_0001

Making up your own instant oatmeal packets is so easy and they literally cost you pennies to make.  You will save around $2 on 10 packets.  Not to mention you can customize your packets to be just how you like them.

Here are a couple of some suggestions:

Brown Sugar Oatmeal:

1/4 cup quick cooking oats (instant), 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar, 1 teaspoon powdered nonfat milk, 1/8 teaspoon salt

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal:

1/4 cup quick cooking oats (instant), 1 sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon powdered nonfat milk, 1-2 tablespoons dried apples, chopped

Cocoa Oatmeal:

1/4 cup quick cooking oats (instant), 1 teaspoon sugar, 1 teaspoon baking cocoa

Today I customized mine to be brown sugar cinnamon apple raisin and put the following in them:

1/4 cup quick cooking oats (instant), 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon powdered nonfat milk, 2 tablespoon of dried apples and 2 tablespoons of raisins.

DSC_0002

I make up 20 quart size baggies at a time and store them rolled up in a 1 gallon bag.

To use dump the contents of one baggie into a bowl, add 1/2 cup water and microwave for around 1 minute.

The baggies are super easy to recycle.  When you empty one put it back in the gallon bag to use for the next round.  :)  Mine have been used many, many times.

Have a terrific weekend!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!
