So she SAYS.
She won't make it, but that's okay, I get to mock her more for not bothering to MAKE THE RECIPE to give us pictures, but she did send us pics of the FIRST CALF OF THE SEASON!!!!!
Meet # 1!!!!!!
How stinkin' cute is he????? She?????? Whatever????????
So we've got the recipe for the corn stuff, Mary ASSURES ME it will be wonderful, that my little urchins will LOVE IT.....
But then she sent another pic of this sweet baby.....
Aww...... :) Big smile here in upstate!!!!! Gorgeous baby!!!!!
Okay, back to corn!
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can creamed corn
1 cup salad-sized pasta (Mary uses the little 'o' shaped pastas, but she says any cute little pasta will do)
1 cup cubed Velveeta
1 stick of butter, cut up
Mix together, put in 8 x 8" buttered casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour, stirring half-way through.
(Ruthy is guaranteed to FORGET to stir this. Hopefully that is not a deal breaker!!!)
Now this baby was produced from AI: artificial insemination
Here is the "baby daddy"!!!!
GORGEOUS!!!!! This stud-muffin's name????
"MAN AMONG BOYS"
Well, that says it all!!!!
And then this Hereford/Angus cross Mama gave birth to this sweetheart:
And here is his sweet daddy "CUSTOM BUILT":
The wonder of artificial insemination is that it allows the farmer first-chance breeding... and then his own bull/bulls can "cover" the cows the following month in case the artificial insemination didn't take. It allows flexibility and diversity.
What a fun mix of bloodlines!!!!
(this is coming from the mother of runners, distance runners who used to say "My mother only lets me date fast girls."
I wanted athletic running grandchildren, LOL!!!! :)
I love the inside glimpse into Mary's ranch life, the babies, the hope of spring.
Mary, thanks for the look! We love it!
