made a delicious pork, rutabaga, sweet potato stew in the crockpot yesterday. made wheat free biscuits too. they tasted good but were flat as pancakes. the recipe calls for almond flour. i ground up nuts, so, almond meal instead. that may have been the problem. the egg whites were stiff. i don't know. i have never made biscuits, with or without wheat. but, there's a couple things i've tried to bake and i haven't gotten them to rise like i've expected. i am a good cook, but, i've never tried to bake much. it does seem harder than cooking.
my mini horse has something wrong with his eye. it's all puffy, pussy and the whites are very red. so, i washed it out thoroughly and then sprayed a product i have called vetericyn in it. i swear by this product. i hope it's nothing serious. i couldn't see any cuts or anything and i couldn't see a foreign object in there. i tied up his long forelock so it wouldn't brush his eyes. he looks like a little unicorn now. i gave him a piece of carrot between each step and he was a real little trooper.
it's a little overcast today, so lovely weather to do things outside. but, alas i am inside with my computer today. sometimes i try and go outside to work, but, then the wind comes up and it's just impossible to keep papers and such under control.
does everyone get a long weekend this weekend? hope so.
