Chicken Day

Friday was chicken butchering day for us and the Horns.  We had a really good day, learned a lot and had lots of good fellowship.  All together we butchered 10 roosters.  We were kinda amazed at how big they looked before we butchered them versus how small they looked when finished.  Huge difference.  We are kinda talking about going with the bigger meat birds next year.  We’re not sure yet though.

Our pastor made us these killing cones.  They are really neat.  I would recommend anyone butchering their own chickens to have one.  They make it a lot easier.  Saturday, the girls and I went down to Jessica’s.  We watched the kids while Dave and Jess had a date afternoon to celebrate their anniversary.  They have been married 12 years.  They went to the movies and David brought us back sushi to try.  We had never eaten it before.  It was actually pretty good.  Grace really liked it.

Sunday, I went to church alone as Julie, Grace and Hubby were not feeling very well.  Julie and Grace seem to have a cold-congestion with lots of coughing.  Hubby is having tummy troubles.  Hopefully all will be well soon.  Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd.  Sunshine with temperatures in the mid 30’s.  It could be a little warmer for my taste but the sun is beautiful.  I have a pork tenderloin cooking away on top of the wood stove.  It smells yummy.  I think I will have potatoes, green beans and cornbread with it.

Well, we are starting school so I better get off.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

  1. Chicken butchering wasn’t bad at all! Happy anniversary to Jess and David. I have never tried sushi. I hope everyone is starting to feel better. McKenzie woke up with a sore throat. She has been sipping on peppermint tea. She has also been eating just fine. She had cabbage rolls, apple slices, carrot sticks, and a tangerine for lunch, and she doesn’t have a fever so I think it’s nothing too serious. Also we read that marshmallows help with sore throats. She ate some and said they do make her throat feel better. I am loving the sunshine today too. Makes the cold so much better!

  2. What a great learning day for you and the horns. The cones sure do make it easier. Yes, the size before and after sure are different.

    I hope that everyone gets well soon. I know there is a pretty bad bug around our area. A lot of teachers and kids have been sick.

    Your supper sounds really good. Have a wonderful evening with your family.

  3. I haven’t ever tried Sushi. I’m not brave enough but my older kids really like it. Yes, the doughnuts were the canned kind. I had completely forgotten about them until I saw them on Pinterest. I hope Grace enjoyed her bday celebration. I’m sure you guys learned alot about and I know it’s nice to have fresh chicken! I’m not sure I could do it but I wish I knew how. I hope you have a great day.

    Blessings,
    Tiffany
