I had a few requests for my Raspberry Custard Pie recipe so here goes...
Raspberry Custard Pie9 inch pie crust 1 tsp vanilla1/2 cup raspberries 2 cups milk2 tsp flour 2 eggs1/3 cup white sugar
Recipe from a Mennonite Cook Book..
Method: Sprinkle the flour around bottom of pie crust. Sprinkle the raspberries evenly around the bottom of pie crust. Put milk, eggs, vanilla, and sugar into blender. (I mix by hand) Blend until mixed well, and pour on the raspberries. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. Place in 400 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Then turn down to 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until silver table knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Personally I don't think 1/2 cup of raspberries is very much so if you like more you could probably put in almost one cup of them. I always thought the raspberry custard pies were a little short on raspberries :-)
How about a slice with a BIG cup of tea? Can I twist your arm?
Easter Sunday morning I had a little surprise at my front door. I was out feeding the birds and as I went to come in a chickadee flew up to the railing on our steps and started giving me a scolding. Have you ever been scolded by a chickadee? It's very hard not to laugh. :-b.
I looked around to see what had her tail in a knot and realized that she was building a nest in my little cat bird feeder that hangs at our front door.
This wooden cat has hung there for fifteen years and has always meant just to be an ornament. The retired-guy thinks it's an ugly one but that's beside the point. This is a first any bird has shown an interest in it. I'm not sure how this will work for her with all the comings and goings at our door but she'll have to figure that out herself. The nest is already built. I hope it all works out for her. I know I'm going to have to take a peak once in awhile. Is that ok?
A little of our Easter...
Bear in a chick suit
Rae-Rae helped with setting the table for dinner.
Then the bunnies opened their baskets and went on an egg hunt.
Riley, Brad and Gwyn really enjoyed the egg hunt.
Little Bradley likes to pretend to make a fire in the wood-stove with Gramps.
I then headed over to where I feed the ferals and treated them all to some left-overs.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend, too. The sun was shining, flowers are popping up and as I mentioned before, nests are being built. :)
