No Show

The Governor was a no show at the museum.  Ya..he is a Democrat.

Some very nice people from the area showed up for egg coffee and cookies during our open house.  We were not over run with people and we had lots of cookies and coffee left over, it is an important Minnesota “Nice” thing to always have enough treats for your guests.

Egg coffee is a Scandinavian thing.  You mix together 1/4 cup of water, 3/4 cup of coffee grounds and one egg.   Set aside and boil ten cups of water.  Add the mixture to the boiling water and let simmer for a couple of minutes..then set aside so the grounds settle.  Makes a wonderful cup of coffee…I usually don’t drink coffee..but I always enjoy egg coffee, so I had two cups!

I think the Governor is going to have to fish on the river, unless some of the lakes opened up during the night.

Gas went up by another dime overnight..it was $3.89 a gallon.  Typical small town gouge them while you can mentality.

I stopped by the beach in Osage on my way home.  The ice has receded on the mill pond.

You can see the ice sheet along the north shore of the mill pond.  There is still ice on the big lake ( Straight Lake).  We will have made history with this late date for ice out:)

    Thanks for the egg coffee recipe, Farside! I have never had a cup of egg coffee, but would like to try it sometime!

    Thank you for explaining egg coffee. My grandparents were from Sweden, but I’ve never heard it mentioned by my Dad or his siblings.
    Sounds interesting.
