There's a little bit of this and a whole lot of that going on in our home this week! We were gifted five laying hens about two weeks ago. If you ever read my story about why Yankees shouldn't try to go country, you will know that I faced the challenge of raising hens with a least a little bit of fear. Well, I am pleased to say that one of our five hens delivered us a fresh egg a couple of days ago. Nobody was more excited than mom but for the sake of cuteness, here is a picture of 3g8 with "the egg".

On Monday, we took the girls strawberry picking and came home with 21#'s of them! Most have been put up in the freezer for smoothies but there's still some in the refrigerator, waiting to be turned into a strawberry rhubarb pie.

Our vegan recipe of the week is posted below. It came from An Ordinary Mom. The family "liked" it but I will probably make it as a side instead of the main course next time!

LouAnn’s Black Bean and Rice Salad

2 c. white rice (pre-cook this, it works better chilled)
1 15 oz. can black beans, drained
1/2 c. chopped tomatoes
1/2 c. chopped avocado
1/2 c. chopped red onion
1/2 c. chopped cilantro
1/4 c. olive oil
3 Tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 crushed garlic clove
salt and pepper

In a large bowl, mix tomato, avocado, red onion, cilantro, beans, and rice. In a small bowl, whisk olive oil, lime juice, sugar, cumin, and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Combine ingredients of small bowl into large bowl and mix until consistent. Enjoy!

That's it for today. Have a blessed evening!
