This past September, our son Jamie and grandson Kenny went on a hunting trip to Alaska where they got two moose. They packaged the meat and flew it home, and they shared some of it with us. So when Jamie and Kenny were here a couple of weeks ago, I made a moose stew.
There were lots of awards Just think how important record keeping is in our lives. We keep medical records, information needed for figuring income tax, business records and a whole lot more. That’s why record keeping is included in 4-H and FFA project work; it is a valuable skill for young people to learn.
“The Tale of Peter Rabbit,” written by Beatrix Potter, was published in 1902. The book was beautifully-illustrated with the author’s watercolor paintings. In the story, Peter Rabbit disobeyed his mother who told him that he must never go into Mr. McGregor’s garden. The book is a classic.
The other week, I asked readers for popcorn ball recipes, and I got two calls — one for popcorn balls and the other for popcorn candy. I can hardly wait for the weekend so that I have time to try the recipes.
There were lots of awards and other recognitions during the 2013 Moffat County 4-H Achievement Night, held Nov. 13 at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. In fact, there were so many that this week’s “From Pipi’s Pasture” has more results to report.
Sarah Zorn has a very “interesting” grandmother. Known as the family as “Z,” this 63-year-old granny can make an adventure out of most anything — like shopping for pencils, planning a diet (sometimes just one color of food each day of the week) or reading the fortunes in fortune cookies.
We’ll celebrate Thanksgiving this coming week, so cooks everywhere have been searching for their family favorite recipes.
The holidays are nearly here, so everybody’s talking about food. This week, I had requests for two cookie recipes: peanut butter and oatmeal raisin.
On Nov. 13, 4-H members, their families and leaders looked back on the many accomplishments of the 2013 program year. The annual 4-H Achievement Night was held at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. This week’s “From Pipi’s Pasture” salutes the 4-H members and leaders.
I so admire Janet Sheridan’s talent for writing. I thoroughly enjoyed her new book, “A Seasoned Life Lived in Small Towns: Memories, Musings and Observations.” After I started reading, I couldn’t put her book down. I read while supper cooked, while waiting for students to arrive and while filling the livestock water tank. I even took the book with me when we helped my brother gather cows one day and was waiting at the gate. I read the book in a short time — then I wanted more.
