1-Super Moist (Betty Crocker) and I used Triple Chocolate Fudge (its what I had)
4 cups of pumpkin or about 2 cans
Mix only cake mix and pumpkin (no additional ingredients necessary) together until thoroughly combined. Bake following the package instructions. Awesome, moist, and delicious and maybe just maybe a whole lot better for you than adding in the eggs and oil. Its a win, win situation.

The decision was made because she was not dialated yet to wait an hour. Another vet came back and the calf had died which does happen. Sometimes there is too much stress on the calf or it is too big and can cause problems. After the calf was delivered, the decision was also made to give her antibiotics. Reason why to prevent infection in her uterus and other reproductive organs and or body. When a cow has just calved we milk her in what is called a bucket. Not the bucket you are thinking of but a pressurized milk-like can that her milk goes into instead of the pipeline that carries the other milk to the bulk tank. When cows have been administered drugs, antibiotics, or whatever is unhealthy for human consumption, that milk does NOT go into the bulk tank which is the milk that is picked up by the milk truck. No, that milk goes in the gutter (essentially down the drain). See the more antibiotics we give our cows the less milk we can use. Where I am going with this is there has been a lot of crappy reporting on "happy" cows and wondering where our food comes from. We can not ship milk that has antibiotics in it. You are not sold milk with antibiotics in it. All milk is tested before it leaves the farm and the whole tanker load is tested at the milk plant. Trust America's farmers they bust their butts for pennies and people whine about products costing too much. Walk a day in my shoes...pay $10,000 worth of bills with only $6,000 of income that is what I dealt with last year. American's do not have it that bad. We are giving you a quality product. Do not question our integrity. There are so many regulations in the dairy industry your head would spin. Bottom line. Non-organic milk is good for you. Please don't be fooled you are not drinking milk with drug residue.

Maclayne in her new outfit from her Godmother Heidi who spoiled her the day before with shopping for many other outfits as well. The tights are a little long as you'll see from the bunched up right leg. Atleast they'll be comfortable. I remember wearing tights many Sundays and not I don't think I could tell you the last time I wore something like that. She looks really stinking cute though and yes, those are Kurt's gloves on the ground. They are set there intentionally to warm up in front of the heat register. Yeah... : )

Monday-Pork roast, mashed potatoes, and green beans (leftover from yesterday)
Tuesday-4-H meeting tonight...hot dogs/ring baloney and homemade mac n' cheese (leftover from Monday's dinner...retread but it works.
Wednesday-Meatballs with gravy over mashed potatoes and green beans
Thursday-Pork chops with country gravy, stuffing, and mixed veggies
Friday-Tacos with cornbread because we have not had these in a long, long time
I was planning on not going to the grocery store this week until I looked at yesterday's ads. Darn it. Sale on pork. We need pork chops and some roasts. The roast from yesterday was the last from the freezer. I have about 20 bags of saurkraut to eat up. My favorite way to make it is with a pork loin roast in the crockpot. Frozen saurkraut goes on top of roast. It is the best. Or eating it alongside Farmland smoked sausage the ring style. Good stuff. Otherwise I would like to take a few pics of my pantry since there is this pantry challenge going on at someone's blog. We could definetly eat from ours for quite awhile. Plus I have all the fresh milk I could ever drink out in the bulk tank in the milkhouse. Yet I still buy my milk. I figure if people see me buying three gallons maybe they would be inclined to buy another gallon (or ten : ) ). You should see me buy cheese.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to get my hair cut in the morning and we have herd check with the vet. I also need to get two months of bookwork done by 10am on Saturday. It won't take me hours and hours (probably an hour total), but I still need to get it done. We go see our accountant Saturday morning. I better get moving.
