So I made Tom an Ultimate Coconut Cake after my recovery from my back pain event for all of his extra work and chauffeuring. Here it is:Here is the recipe. I was intrigued by it since the ingredients are so coconut based. But It did not look or taste as great as I thought it would. So I will stick with the coconut cake recipe that I made for him for his birthday.
So the rest of the cake went to the pigs. As we are in their final days, I decided to bake sweet stuff for them. I like to bake but cannot eat it, and Tom eats only small amounts of it. So this is my opportunity to bake things that I want to try out. I made them two Krusteaz lemon pound cakes. Then I made them Peabody Hotel Vanilla Muffins. I took a photo of the recipe when we were at the hotel in Memphis. So I wanted to try it, and this was the perfect opportunity.
I fed the Jack O Lanterns to the animals this week. They seemed to enjoy them.
Plus I finished drying the ripe figs my mother gave to me on Sunday. I am trying to feed the unripe ones to the chickens, but I am not sure they are interested. I will know in the morning if they are gone. Otherwise I did find some South American and Italian recipes to be able to use them. Here are the dried ones:
I am also drying some quince that did not make it in the quince-asian pear cider. I am drying the dye plants as well.
So that is the news from Schoonover Farm!
