Farmgirl Friday # 54

 Welcome to week # 54 of The Farmgirl/Guy Friday Blog hop! 

 If you've been looking for an online community where showing off your farmgirl/guy flare is not only okay, but, encouraged this is the blog hop for you! Share your daily doin's on your farmsteads whether you tend many acres, a backyard, community garden or an apartment balcony! 

Flower Farm Update: My greenhouse arrived last week and if the good weather hold through the weekend I should be able to show you photos next week! 

I don't know about you but all work and no play make this farmgirl and her farmguy grumpy. So, we packed a bag, the teens ( Max) and headed off to the cottage for some R and R and a little spring cleaning.


One of my favorite things to do is to open the windows and sweep out the cobwebs. It was the perfect day to do a little hand washing too! 

It was a clear, sunny day; just right for hanging out a pair of lace curtains to dry 

while we brewed a pot of camp coffee!

Naturally, we brought some fresh eggs from home to enjoy with our coffee! We made southwestern scrambled eggs for breakfast.


9 Eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
 ( or if you like your eggs real spicy ) substitute with pepper-jack cheese.
1/4cup chopped sweet onion
2 tablespoons butter

Mix eggs, salsa, cheese and onion in mixing bowl.
Melt butter in skillet until melted.
Add egg mixture and scramble to your liking .
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Top with crisp bacon crumbles, a dollop of sour cream and you've got your self a tasty southwestern breakfast no matter where you are!  
These eggs are also de-lish wrapped in a burrito sized soft flour 
tortea! Serve with black beans on the side. Yum!

Now, on with the hop! 

  Here are the rules for the Farmgirl/guy Friday Blog Hop! 
1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!

2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.

3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

Thanks so much for all you share each week! I hope you are all enjoying the sweet offerings of spring!



Those Southwestern Scrambled eggs sound delicious! I have to try those. Your eggs are so pretty and I love the washtub and the lace curtain on the line...

Sounds like you are keeping busy! It's always nice to get some of those "spring" cleaning jobs done and freshen up the house.

My Mom has a Tea Pot Collection. Some look like the one you have. Green eggs for breakfast, sounds like fun.

I wanted to join the Hen House Hop but when I got to thinking about it and looking at last years post, nothing has changed. Just a few updated pictures of the Chickens.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm not a Farm Gal but I loved this blog, fresh duck eggs is my dream but sadly I live in a built up area where we aren't allowed to keep ducks for the noise.Rx

Anne Birdsong said...

Hi Deborah Jean! I'm Anne from Life on the Funny Farm, and I was part of your most recent "Hop" (I wrote about my "gender-confused chicken"). Anyway, I wanted to ask how to get the button to put on my blof when I join in on your hops. I saw to do that in your instructions, but I couldn't make it work. Any advice so I can do this right next time?


Unknown said...

Hi Anne! Sure! Just copy and past ( right click on the photo for the frop down menu) the Farmgirl Friday photo and save it to your picture file.. then when you add it to a post you can add the link below it! I don't have an HTML code for that button...:) If you just want to add the link at the bottom of your post, that is just fine too!
Thanks for joining the hop!
