Vince finished up getting everything ready to take to the CPA yesterday morning so he wanted to go and take it all to her. It’s a little ways from here and there’s a restaurant, Cooky’s, in Golden City, MO that we’ve heard good things about and we wanted to eat there so after he dropped everything off, we went to Cooky’s. It was good – home cooked type meals. They’re known for their pies. We brought home a slice of coconut pie but haven’t tried it yet.
From there, we went to get eggs from the Mennonite farmer. He had 11 dozen in the fridge with more to get in the cartons and in the fridge. He said he’d make us a deal if we’d take all 11 dozen so . . Vince heard “deal” and we came home with 11 dozen eggs. I think there are still three dozen eggs in the fridge. I’ll probably freeze dry 6 or 7 dozen tomorrow, depending on how many I can fit per tray. They say 12 – 18 eggs fit on each tray but some eggs are small, some are large so I’ll pour in as many as I can.
Freeze dried eggs are so good. As far as scrambled eggs for breakfast, I like the freeze dried better than fresh but I save the freeze dried for when we don’t have fresh. I’ve read (but haven’t tried it) that hard boiled eggs can be chopped and freeze dried, then hydrated and used for egg salad, tuna salad – in any dish where boiled eggs would be used. I’ll boil some eggs, chop them and try that too.
This guy has some good freeze drying videos and here’s one about eggs.
From there, we went to the Mennonite store. I asked if she had an extra bag of hard white wheat. She did so I bought that. Then we went to Aldi, then to Walmart. We also stopped at a few flea markets. I can tell you I was glad to get home and Oscar was glad for us to get home!
Today I plan to stay home and stitch all day. But, I plan to do that every day and it rarely happens.
I’ve eaten at Cooky’s a few times!! Been a long time, mid 90’s, and I thought it was ancient back then! I was dating a guy from Carthage area and he loved that place. And yes, the pies, so many pies.
On a cross stitch note, I have ordered supplies for Winter Rose Manor.
Hope one of the two fabrics I ordered works. I want to be able to SAL with you by mid March.
It was started in 1942 and they moved to the current location in 1946 so you are right . . it was ancient back then.
Great. I think everyone is going to LOVE stitching Winter Rose Manor. You can always change the floss colors if you need to. I made a few stitches with each color and I think I will change at least five of the colors so they show up on my linen. If you’re using the overdyes and need to sub out DMC, that’s fine.
