Chickens, Pork and Yorkshires

Thought I would do a quick fly by in here... while dinner is cooking, smells great too. I am making a family dinner for my son, as he leaves on Thursday for New Zealand, we are having succulent roast pork with apples sauce,  roast tatters, kumera, pumpkin - steamed broccoli and peas, and Yorkshire Puds. sadly my Yorkshire making skills are pretty blimmin transient and more often than not they look like dish sponges rather than light, tasty gravy catching cups of goodness, so I gave in and bought frozen ones from Woolies....
I can see Sue over there at Living The Good Life having a good chuckle and rolling her eyes, 'cause she is queen of the Yorkie batter from what I have seen.. one day I will get the hang of it, even if my husband says there is no such thing as a bad Yorkshire pud... tomorrow night the kids are barbecuing.. Bless them, they have decided I am to do the desert not my choice theirs, so Tiramasui is it  ...

At least the chickens are safe from the bbq chefs.. aren't they be beautiful girls (two more are stalking my husband who is in filling the food hopper)...only problem with these chickens, they are not mine!

She is looking at the veges scraps I have tossed in here...

 I LOVE chickens and I fulfil my chicken owning desires, vicariously through you all who have yards filled with hens and will do until I have a bit of dirt to call my own and can move the chickens in... these lovelies belong to a friends who are off on holiday, so I am chicken sitting -
and look what they left me.. the most beautiful eggs even if the photo is blurred.
