Last night as we were finishing our nightly milking, Snookie decided minus 24 degrees was the perfect temperature for delivering her calf. Actually, I don't think she had much of a choice in the ETA (estimated time of arrival)! Delivery went smoothly, and her beautiful red Holstein heifer (girl) calf is doing great!
|Steam rises from Snookie's baby girl with the below 0 temperatures. She is only 5 minutes old in this photo, and after a rub down with warm towels, she was eager to stand up.|
When we are finished with our chores, and have checked on our animals one last time to make sure they are safe and comfortable in these frigid temperatures, I think tonight is a perfect time to sit back, relax, put my feet up, (yep, new cow slippers, thanks to Sara)...and watch a movie. Pass the popcorn please!
Three- Cheese Popcorn
Toss 16 cups hot popcorn with 2 cups shredded cheddar, 1 cup grated parmesan and 1/2 cup grated pecorino; spread on baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees until the cheddar melts, 3 minutes. Season with salt, if desired.
