There was no activity suggested for the first chapter, but that didn't stop us from making one up. The chapter was about the first signs of spring and about Sarah letting out the chickens for the first time. It talked about chickens get broody and that they don't always lay eggs where you would expect them to. Sarah found an egg, but not just any egg. She found the first egg of the season and when she brought it in to show Ma, Ma said she would use it to make egg pudding.
I had never even heard of egg pudding before. Have you? I googled it and found a few recipes, but we can't have milk. We searched some more and found a similar recipe that was dairy free. Yippee! We used this recipe for Thai Egg Pudding, but I am not sure what is Thai about it. It is dairy and sugar free. The recipe called for 45 minutes baking time and well... it took 1 hour and 45 minutes until it was done. It was so worth the wait. It was custard like and creamy and delicious topped with our homemade blueberry jam. If you haven't ever made Egg Pudding, I urge you to give it a whirl.
We had so much fun and look forward to the chapters to come. I am planning on getting a drop spindle and roving to spin some yarn. We will also try dying some wool and hopefully dip some candles, make homemade cranberry sauce and of course quilt something. Stay tuned.
God Bless and have a great day!
