Good moring from the moutian

Good morning from the mountain, it is pleasant rainy day.  I was so hopeful yesterday, we had found a home for a rooster who then decided to fight everything in the barn yard, a real bruiser that one.  So tough is this rooster that he would give Popeye a run for his money.  So now he is running the yard with a swollen eye, blood dripped comb and still I can not catch him.  We offered the woman an older red rooster, it was not going to work, though he would have been a good breeder, missing tail feathers though, and a younger reddish colored rooster, who is as tough as nails fertile as the great delta, but neither of these were to fulfill her desire or need.  Sometimes I just fall short, so said roosters will become food for us and not breeding stock for some one else, that is how farm life goes sometimes.

My lavender has set to bloom and all I can think about it is lavender cookies.

Here you make some too:

You will need :
Parchment paper and cookie sheet
1 3/4 flour I use wheat flour, but you can use white.
3/4 of a cup of sugar or 1/4 cup of honey.
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 duck, chicken or 7 large quail eggs or a quarter of a goose egg.
3/4 cup of real whole cream butter( room temp) or 3/4 cup of apple sauce.
1 teaspoon bourbon vanilla
At least a 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lavender flowers or one teaspoon dried.

I do not preheat ovens, unless cooking with my wood-burning one.  You will want to cook these cookies at around 350 degree F or 175 C for about 10-12 minutes, till they are golden and lovely.

But before we can bake we must mix the ingredients, dry to wet.  Mix flour, sugar baking soda together and add the butter and egg or eggs, now add vanilla and lastly lavender.  Once mixed drop by spoonful on Parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Now bake as directed above and enjoy.  Cookies are best when shared with others.

Time for me to get to my chores, be blessed dear ones.
