Week 30 Tuesday (8/5/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Coconut Curry Shrimp
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 497 calories per serving, if 5 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I love this dish!  I was surprised that they didn’t put shredded coconut in the dish but coconut milk. Now I knew coconuts had milk in them, but never knew you could buy it in a can. Who knew? Did you? 
         This is a wonderful filling dish. The honey gives it a sweetness while the hot sauce an extra kick. This is amazing. I did substitute Brown Instant Rice for the Basmati Rice suggested in Ree’s recipe. I had the brown rice in the cupboard and it saved me a trip to the store.

A Day At The Farm       

         The Scent Family has a yearly picnic. For the past two years, it has been hosted by my cousin, Lori, and her amazing husband Chuck Frieders. They own a farm  in Marseilles, Illinois, which is wonderful, for the family get together.
         There are seats outside and in the nearby garage, we had a hayride and were able to tour the farm and see all of the animals. As usual, Lori is such a great hostess and everything once again ran smoothly. Here are some of my pictures from my day at the farm.

Today, the farm.  Tomorrow, the animals.

I love looking out over the landscape.
The farm is a beautiful place to live.

Chuck said this is an old tractor in need of repair. 

I had to ask what the heck this was as I walked by.
This is a machine the rakes up the hay or straw so it can be baled.

Every farm needs a silo.

This barn held some of the animals and machinery.

I didn't go in this barn

This tractor was parked in the yard with a hay wagon attached.
Time for a hay ride!

Everyone ready to go??
Chuck starts her up




I loved this day on the farm.
