FFG--Maple Crumb Muffins


My friend Lori is a farm girl at heart.  Click her button to the left to visit her blog and join us on Fridays, because farm girls love company!  :)

Well, it was a good week here on my suburban "farm."  We actually turned on the a/c in the "barn" for a few return-of-summer days!  Number one stallion (Joe) stayed in the "barn" for shelter this week.  Number two stallion (Jacob) studied hard at the "training corral."  Number three stallion (Danny) is getting "saddle-trained" both online and with his older brother.  And number four stallion--well, colt, anyway--has romped rambunctiously around both the "barn" and the "pasture."  (That would be Thomas.)

The big "stud" worked hard all week providing for this "mare" and their herd.  Even though his mane has a touch of gray now, he still has what it takes to round up his herd well.

Since I happen to be on a farm theme, I leave you with a Bible verse, and a yummy recipe.

Know well the condition of your flocks,
And pay attention to your herds;
For riches are not forever,
Nor does a crown endure to all generations.
Proverbs 27:23-24 nasb
