OLIVER – FERAL CATS – OLD COOKBOOK RICE PUDDING -SPINNING TARGHEE ROVING

11 12 2012

HELLO

OLIVER

Oliver came home from Brookside Animal Hospital today.  He had quite an ordeal, with dental extractions and fixing some ingrown nails.  I feel such a sense of relief knowing that he is not in any pain now.    He was given a shot of antibiotics that will last 2 weeks.

ALMOST HOME

ALMOST HOME

The sedative that was given to him at home worked but didn’t make him sleep, I finally had to get my fire tending gloves to catch him.   Our vet Dr. Funk explained that if cats don’t get to mingle with humans when they are very  young they will remain feral.  Poor Oliver accepts me as the person who gives him food and water and cleans his liter box but is afraid of me.   I am going to be spending my night-time hours with him in hopes that he will come around a little.  Dr. Funk would like to keep his nails trimmed so in 2 months time we should make a return visit.

OLIVER FINALLY ENJOYING HIS FANCY FEAST

MY GRANDMOTHER COOKBOOK

This cookbook was given to my Mom, it belonged to my Grandmother who passed away before my Mother met my Dad.    It is a well used book and its fragile, I hope someday to look through it and use some of the recipe’s.

OLD FASHIONED RICE PUDDING

This was a dessert staple in my family home and I still make it.  Its filling and tasty and a good way to use up extra milk.

4 cups of milk                                                     2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup uncooked rice                                    1/2 tsp. salt

(not quick cook rice )                                      1 tsp. vanilla

grated nutmeg                                                  3/4 cup raisins

Put all ingredients except the grated nutmeg and raisins into a large casserole baking dish and stir together.  Add the grated nutmeg on top and bake in a 300 degree oven for 3 hours.  During the first hour stir 2 or three times with a fork so the rice will not settle on the bottom.  After this add 3/4 cup raisins and stir.

When cooled enough store in the fridge.

This is good served warm or cold.    ENJOY

SPINNING TARGHEE

I have been cleaning  in my room full of boxes of wool and yarn and I found this green Targhee roving.  I love the variation in colors.  I plan to get some smaller amounts of dyed roving spun up and make some fingerless gloves to sell next fall.
