Another beautiful morning....colder than I expected with ice on the water trough.
I'm sure all of us horse people have many things in common.
Like wheelbarrows, forks, rakes, brooms and buckets.
Dirty blankets and feeders.
Mats and bedding.
and windows full of dust and other things.
A barn kitty or three.
How about a basketball rim in the paddock....
All three girls left the hay and went out to the back pasture.
Look at those blue Colorado skies....it was that way all day long.
This is the barn the horses live in....my barn.
I call this Gary's barn. That red door takes you into the tack room which also has two stalls. There is a run-in behind it and the front part facing the house is loaded with his "stuff".
Hopefully we all have enough hay for our critters. Ours is stored in the loft and we throw down several bales at a time (this is before finishing up this morning, so it is not too pristine).
lots of clips
and food for our little buddies.
Remember, this barn is over a hundred years old....check out those beams.
We had to break through a cement paddock to bring water to the barn....what a great move.
Do you all have a dusty old radio?
It never warmed up, so the sheets stayed on.
I went down to the college for drumming...a good turnout.
Need to learn this new pattern.
Stopped at Weggies on the way home...company for dinner tomorrow night and I needed to pick up a bunch of stuff. Started tonight's meal when I got home a little before 5.
I had par boiled some organic chicken thighs with an onion and put them in a pie plate. Added some low sodium Kikoman Soy Sauce, a splash of orange juice and topped them off with a spoon of apricot jam (threw in some raw carrots).
Covered it with another pie plate and put it in the oven while I went out to do chores.
Also made my version of lomain. Put about three inches of water in a pot...bring to boil and add soy sauce and chicken stock. Throw in spaghetti that has been broken in half and cook until almost done.
Turn off heat and cover. I added frozen peas and let it sit for 30 minutes so all the liquid would be absorbed by the pasta, turning it brownish and adding flavor.
Tucked in the ponies....I was hungry and in high gear.
I may be weird, but love to have fruit with Chinese....especially bananas (tonight added oranges).
This is how the chicken turned out.
It was moist and delicious. Just what I wanted.
Loved mixing up all the flavors....yum. What did you have for dinner tonight?
