I borrowed this recipe from Weight Watchers, and it's 7 points. Delish! I served it with garlic bread and salad.
Today was a good day on the farm. Little Red, one of the chickens, laid an egg, so that's two in a row for her. Emil worked on the lawnmower and diagnosed a carburetor problem. I started a fire and burned our paper/cardboard and pulled weeds.
BIG NEWS: My Uncle Ron and Grandma are coming to visit! We are looking forward to exploring Redmond and Bend with them.
