Cows and Pie

Junior. B. cut the field this week. I like the shadows from the morning sun on the rows. The air is sharply cooler and the cut hay smells wonderful!

All that hay will be baled and sent across the road to feed these lovely ladies. Their owner drove up with a salt block and the curious cows meandered over to have a look.

This quartet hung back and observed the parade to the salt block. Aren't the little ones adorable? We enjoy having cows across the road. They make good neighbors and the calves antics are fun to watch when they run and play.

This is a Peaches and Cream Pie from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. Click on the link for the recipe. We still have fresh peaches and I needed to use them for something (other than jam). I ran across this recipe which uses a bag of marshmallows and I decided to try it just because it was different. We liked it well enough, it's refreshing and simple and worth the fun to make. The only thing I didn't like about it was the powdery-ness from the marshmallows. It doesn't dissolve in the recipe and you can feel it on your tongue. But that's just me.

  1. My ex father-in-law had cows - we used to go out and count them at the end of the day. I was usually assigned that task, because I didn't mind it and liked the walk. The post reminded me of that.

    Yum on the pie!
