Shake vigorously for three minutes.

Today was kitchen day. I washed the dishes first, a twice weekly chore.

Then I made butter. So easy and magical.

Then I made a banty egg dish with diced tomatoes and mushrooms with Italian sausage patties. The larger brown egg that I thought may have been laid by one of the larger girls, was indeed a banty egg with two yolks. So I had ten eggs and eleven yolks. Talk about rich - mmmmm rich.

I had gone to the Corydon farmer's market early Saturday morning and picked up tons of stuff. So today, I cooked snap green beans with new potatoes. Then, I stir fried yellow squash, shredded cabbage, mushrooms, banana peppers, green peppers, and onion, to be served with aged basmati rice.

I also made a cold vegetable salad of cucumbers, red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and left over corn off the cob mixed with my special ingredient, zesty Italian dressing.

These dishes will last us several days. I am learning to really like these cooking marathons, especially with Sweetie home, as he tends to eat too much peanut butter and crackers unless there is ready-to-eat food in the fridge.

He also has a superb fashion sense.
