Home again! Feet up! Already missing Sister Sherry and the mastiffs.

What did we do the last two days, you ask? What we always do, cook and eat! In between, we checked out the yard with all the spring blooming bulbs. We fed the miniature horses and the donkeys - and the llamas; gathered the eggs; watered the chickens and horses; watched the new baby chicks following their mother around; and petted the mastiffs.

Today we made the lemon curd and whipped cream filling for the lemon cake Sherry made yesterday.      I brought in some garlic chives for Sherry to incorporate into the crust she was making for the quiche we were going to have later. Forry shredded the gruyere cheese, we sliced the rest of the asparagus we bought yesterday; sliced and sautéed some leeks; sliced some mushrooms and crumbled up some of the sausage patties we had had for breakfast. All this was added to some very fresh eggs and cream, some nutmeg, salt and pepper and added to the par-baked pie shell. Once baked, we had an incredible meal. It was so good - a perfect spring feast!

To top off a perfect day of eating and visiting, we listened to the Mariners beat Texas. It was a cliffhanger with the lead changing back and forth until the very last inning!

We drove home after the game, arriving just about sunset. Life is good!
