A la Antoinne.

Or, rabbit pot pie - Michigan style. ;-) Cooked the bunny, made a white sauce with the pan drippings and some turkey broth, added some peas and carrots and pour the whole mess into a casserole dish. Being lazy, I dropped on some bisquick (won't do that again - great-grandma's biscuit recipe is better), and baked. Voila. Dinner. (Or would have been voila, had I not turned off the oven, instead of the burner. Whoops.) Also made the Brewer's Blondies from Baked. Good, but not really probably worth a repeat. Next on the list: Malted cake.

Still musing on a new gown for Masque.

Oh, and needing to tot up my teachers before I run out of spots. ;-) What a happy problem to have!! I'll find room for all the great people who have been so accomodating. ;-)

It's my bed time. Cause I'm needin' the sleep lately. Maybe we'll get the girls in for flu shots this week. Though Mom was fussing at me about something she watched on TV where some "endocrinologist and immunologist" (OK, weird combo suggesting Quack!) who was insisting Thimersol DOES cause autism. *head desk, head desk, pound, pound, pound* Well, guess what, I already have one autistic child and in spite of it I'd rather not lose either of them to the flu!!!

Oh, and I got my new King Arthur Flour catalog today. I'm happily going through it with a marker, making my Christmas list!

No real news on the job front. An odd call or two from various other entities fishing to see if John is worth pursuing. Nice to be wanted. I hope.

My chickens from Tracey actually came with a rabbit. ;-) Meaning, she acquired some meat rabbits from her 4H kids at the fair, and had them processed. Since I was buying some chickens from her anyway, she threw in a bunnya for make-weight.

Now - anybody got any good recipes for cooking rabbit?

The foul weather shows no signs of letting up. Or rather, the intermittent nature of it makes it difficult to determine when and if to venture out. This is one of those relatively rare instances of an arctic air mass moving over a warm, open lake. It generates odd patterns. It should be noted, for those not familiar, that lake effect storms are quantitatively different than standard snow shower conditions. Much less predictable, much more wind shifting, much more variant. One minute, you're watching pleasant little flakes quietly drifting down. The next, you've hit a white-out so thorough you can't tell if you're on the road or not.

*sigh* If it quites like it intends to STAY quiet, I might venture out and try to grab some silk to line my partlet with.

In the meantime, I have made a batch of chocolate chip cookies. For anybody who cares, I now share my recipe:

Femke's Foul Weather Cookies

1/2 c maragarine
1/2 c. shortening (I use smart balance)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
2 1/2 Tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla (I like vanilla)
2 1/4 c. AP flour
1 12 oz pkg choc chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together margarine, shortening, and sugar. Add soda and salt. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla. Add flour, divided into two portions. Stir in chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
