We Don't Get Out Much....

First, let me just say that we did try to go to church on Sunday, Pastor Steve, but having missed church for nearly a month while we've been readying the barn for demolition, probably led us to miss the announcement telling us that church was being held elsewhere this, we went to an early showing of the new Harry Potter movie.  The last time we went to a movie theater was HP, Deathly Hallows, part 1, and the last movie we saw prior to that I think was HP, Half-Blood Prince.  (Can you tell we don't get out much!)

We are complete Harry Potter geeks.  We have all the movies, all the books......So, I had a giggle this morning when our "Lestrange" sisters came into the parlor next to each other.  We also have a Nymphadora, Andromeda, & Hermione wondering around.  (hey, when you are searching for cow names, you use whatever inspiration comes to you & they are cool names that we won't get confused!).

Narcissa (black) & Bellatrix (red) cows in the parlor
For some reason, they were all camera shy this morning....but Bellatrix always looks mad (hence how she got her name!), & she's got a funky red/black hair color.

I also tried to use up what I had in the frig tonite to make a BLT pizza with all the fresh ingredients available.  I was a little heavy-handed with the salt, but it is still pretty good!  (at least Brent ate half of it & didn't complain).  And, it incorporates both pork & dairy, so ENJOY!

Cut up tomatoes.  Add some balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt & pepper.  Cook off in 350 deg oven for 15 minutes. While tomatoes are cooking, coat a pizza crust with olive oil & parmesan cheese (grated or shredded), and cook bacon in microwave.  When tomatoes are hot, add diced up lettuce (lettuce should wilt when added).  Spread tomato & lettuce mixture over crust, add bacon, and cheese (mozzerella or provolone, something that will melt).  Add fresh basil.  Cook for 10-15 minutes, just until cheese is melted.

We are using this time to catch up on house/office work, because it is just ICKY outside, and will be all week.  Brent & his dad got lots of fans mounted in the barn today though, so that hopefully, we can get the cows a little more comfort in all this heat!
