This was the quick meal I made during the land clearing. Rinse the birds, heat the oven to 350F, stuffed with half box of stovetop cornbread dressing. Rub them with McCormick Sea Salt Mediterrean blend (tin container), pour in 1/2 cup soda, juice or water. Put in oven for 1 hour 20 mins. Then I went back to push mow for 30 min and then came in to baste the hens then back outside to mow again. Finish off, at the 1 hr 20 mark baste the hens after taking them out of oven. Let birds rest while taking the leftovers, I served with potato salad and apples for dessert.
Now back to the land clearing photos part two.
As you can see there is plenty of stuff left to take out of the stock pond. We plan on digging it deeper and lining the pond with clay to hold water then add some catfish or perch so, the boys will have a fishing hole. It is amazing how much stuff is still left to clean out. There is no telling what all is left or buried in this area. Next will come the huisache removal and burn, tree trimming, leveling, the original Hoe Hen Inn will be torn down, and then the 'hunting lodge added --- we have our work cut out for us but, I would have it no other way. I really do enjoy having hubby home; these last two weeks have given me insight that our growing old together is quiet possible without us killing each other. LOL
OH! I almost forgot. Sears delivered 'Huskie,' and I took the big ole girl for a mow. I love her! I only put two hours on her and my entire job was completed. I have never enjoyed mowing so much. Hubby and I will be fighting to mow now she has come to our small homestead.
