Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55. Pearl introduced me to this and this week I am using a new recipe – see what you think!
Blitz a couple of slices of stale bread in the processor and place in large dish with water – mix until water is absorbed. Boil spagetti until soft. Rinse in cold water and chop into small lengths, place in dish. Add porridge oats and stir until absorbed. Finally add grit and layers pellets now serve!
Yes it is the current winter food I am feeding the hens, a particular favourite of theirs along with rice which you can see Bev tucking into above.
Our neighbours are on holiday a nd I am looking after their hens and cats! (They do not share accomodation! lol) If you remember a few weeks ago we took our two broody hens over to try and encourage them to hatch some chicks. Bev did not succeed and was brought home. Mabel however succeeded and hatched one chick. This morning when I went over to let the hens out she was first out, together with her chick!
Mabel is an excellent mother and will not allow the other hens anywhere near her chick. She will be staying over with the neighbours and raising her chick until further notice. We are not sure what sex the chick is – we will be able to tell in a few weeks when we will be able to choose a name.
The weather here is quite dire at the moment and it looks as though it will continue to rain throughout the weekend so it doesn’t look as though we will be venturing out on the motorbike. My study therefore summons and I will be locking myself away and working on more for my exhibition. October has arrived so I have 21 more days to get a collection together!
