Since I won the beautiful ceram
ic cow canister set last year, I hesi
tated to enter this year. But since
the rules stud previous winners
should try again, here goes
another recipe.
My husband George and I are
still enjoying country life. We just
cut hay on May 16th for the first
time this year. We have 42 acres
and 13 beef cattle.
Our children presented us with
three granddaughters this year.
One was born on Valentine’s Day
and two arrived in late March. The
little "Valentine” Samantha
weighed only 21 'A ounces and was
12 inches long at birth. Paris
weighed 7.1 pounds and Michelle
was 89 pounds at birth. They are
both growing nicely. Samantha
has spent three months in a Balti
more hospital with caring doctors
and nurses seeing to her needs.
She's had many ups and downs,
traveling a very rocky road, but we
expect her to be discharged in the
next few weeks. She is up to
3'A pounds now. We believe the
prayers of God’s people have play
ed a large part in Samantha’s sur
vival. Praise His name.
Dairy products are a pan of our
daily diet. They are wholesome
and nutritious. I enjoy cooking,
baking, and trying new recipes. I
look forward to all the recipes that
will be printed inyour paper. Keep
