Hickery Holler has received rain again finally. The weather man says this has been the 5th driest October on record here in Northern Missouri. Everyone was on edge watching for fires as they can spread through those unpicked fields of corn and soy beans fast. We are starting to see the large flocks of migratory birds again, some passing through and some like the geese lingering for the winter. Along with the geese come the eagles again. The skies come alive with flocks of thousands of blackbirds.
I have been playing around with making a version of homemade hash browns or potato crowns. Grated potatoes and a few onions packed into the mini muffin tins and then frozen. I made a batch and threw in some bacon bits and grated cheddar and they really liked those. Baked in the oven until crispy.
O Wise One loaded up the hogs on Monday and took them to the butcher so I have been rearranging freezers to make room.
O Wise One butchered a turtle for me and I am going to make some Cajun turtle sauce piquant. It is kind of a Cajun turtle soup. I will post the recipe.
