Summer Sunday

It was a great day weather wise to take the convertible into town for church.  Tammy and I had decided to attend church this morning.  So off we went this and just up the road ran into this:IMG_2057 Our neighbors were moving their cows and I sure took a lot of teasing from them for having “Michael’s” car out and getting cow poop on it!

We enjoyed the church service, made a quick stop at the grocery store and headed home.  Nat was coming for lunch and I needed to get to cooking!  There are two Lutheran churches in our area and the two churches share a minister.  So, one church as to start rather early in order for the minister to get to the other service in a timely manner.  Big Timber Lutheran starts services at 9am—YIKES!  I think it is time to switch starting times and let those folks out in the country get up early—they are all ranchers, they are probably up anyway! 

We had steaks on the grill with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans for lunch.  When I moved here to marry Michael he was working for Barbara and her husband Tom.  Barbara had this incredible strawberry ice cream recipe—I made some today and here’s the recipe:

1 cup whipping cream, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/8 tsp. vanilla and 6 large strawberries hulled and finely chopped.  Mix all ingredients together and freeze in your ice cream maker.  It is the smoothest, best tasting ice cream.  The original recipe calls for an egg beaten into the mixture but I chose to leave that out (I’m not into raw eggs) and it doesn’t seem to make any difference in taste. 

After Nat left I got to work quilting the baby quilt and tonight I will start sewing on the binding—gotta get my IPod loaded with a new book so I can listen and sew. 

Michael worked outside on this and that with Emmi supervising.

Life is good, very good.



  1. Even though I lived on a farm as a kid, I doubt my parents would have accepted an excuse of a cow traffic jam for being late to church.

  2. WONDERING ---Did ROLLIE make it home in the little jeep & does it have air-condition?

  3. That strawberry ice cream sounds so good - must make some. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  4. I like how you always have your larger meal at lunchtime!!!..and dessert sounded delicious!!

  5. If I had an ice cream maker, I'd definitely be trying your recipe!
