House Capuchin Shield2We’re making a major change to the way these reports show up as of this past week. They’re still going to be posted each week to House Capuchin and to the Summits group, but otherwise there will be a monthly post to each of the groups where we’ve been posting weekly with links to the weekly reports.

Mostly sewing and cookery this week and the Feast Cookbook is finally done!

Anja’s fabric

Anja’s still not sure whether she’s getting to All Fool’s or not, but the food is going. Watch the Facebook page to figure out whether Herbs and Sewing will happen on Saturday. Project Day will, whatever else.

  • Herb Bunch – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 11am-1pm
  • Sewing Time – At Ancient Light, Saturdays, 3-5pm
  • Project Day – At Ancient Light, Sundays, Noon to 6pm
  • Next Potluck – 4/15

Here is the direct Portfolio link which has all the past Project Day reports and various projects, original here:  and new one here: and number three is here:

Early Week – We got to see the Duckmeister! She’s had a rough winter and has been absent

from everything for months… but…. she’s fine… the ducks are finally starting to lay, so she brought a couple of dozen by….and that means pickled duck eggs for the All Fool’s Feast! I was just going to use some chicken eggs, but it’ll be nice to have the *good* ones. She also has goose eggs, now, so plans are hatching…. 🙂

Some of the food that’s going to All Fool’s got worked on. We inventoried what we have and Anja made a couple more dishes.

Sewing kept happening and some of the largess in the drawers got tagged.

Pickled Eggs

Cookery – Good eggs! So pickled eggs happened. We baked up some of the frozen babovki that were left over and stuffed ourselves on them (poppyseed heaven!). We also finished inventorying what we had of leftovers ready to go to All Fool’s, so that Anja would know what would help to make for it.

On Friday, Loren tried to find “pickle crisp” at the grocery store, which is something you need for making some of the cheeses like mozzarella. We’re going to have to search more… He got the milk for the tvarog, though.

…and we found a recipe for Hrudka, which is a Ukrainian easter cheese that takes eggs and saffron as well as the milk.

Sewing Stuff – Since most of the Saturday Sewing group is mundanes there’s rarely anything to put here from Saturday, so we’re including the whole week.

Anja is still steadily working through kisslock pouches. The copper on black one was finished on Tuesday and she did another on Thursday of her blue/gold lattice on white fabric and then set up more on Sunday.

Herbs – Lots of things are popping up in the garden.

We unburied the lovage that we thought might have been frost-killed but had survived after all, got the newly-potted things into the garden.

We have lots of beet greens, celery and turnip tops getting close to being ready to harvest, too.

The herbs are starting to look healthy again, after looking puny for months, but it’s *finally* starting to warm up!

Project Day

We wanted to do cookery today. We started with hard-boiling some more eggs for pickled eggs and set up a bean pottage. While that was going Anja pulled out the cookbook to try to finish it. Eventually more of the pekanky got cooked in a chicken dish.

Anja did a little sewing and Amy came in late, after we were done for the day.

Bean pottage was:

  • 4 cups beans
  • 3 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup caraway
  • 1//4 cup salt
  • 12 cups water
  • 1 lb bacon, cut up
