Our Trip

We have been on a trip to Kansas, Texas, and Utah! As you probably guessed we were gone for a long time! Any guesses for how long? I will tell you in my next post. On our trip we visited both of my grandmas, had a lemonade stand, saw the Albuquerque balloon festival, and celebrated my youngest brothers birthday! when we got home yesterday we found out most of our chickens have been killed by an animal!:( It was heartbreaking! We had a lot of chickens but now we only have 9! We are glad to be home.

Rhubarb Bread/Muffins


 This is a recipe I got from my friend Sarah and you can do blueberries instead of rhubarb; in fact the original recipe is for blue berry muffins instead of rhubarb but I had rhubarb on hand so I tried it and it is really good!

 4 eggs
2 C. sugar
1 C. vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla 
4 C. flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
2 C. (16 oz) sour cream
2 C. fresh rhubarb

In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Gradually add sugar. While beating, slowly pour in oil; add vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add alternately with sour cream to the egg mixture. gently fold in rhubarb. Spoon into greased muffin tins or if doing bread put in a greased bread pan.bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
