Tomorrow is our branding. It will be our “small” one, with only a bit over 100 calves.
That means the cowboys gathered the pasture today… but I babysat the little girls and finished up my share of the cooking. Since I’m back at work at the library, my Wednesday and Thursday were booked. Get it? BOOKED.
What are we having to eat?
Well, our “small” branding usually gets the short end of the stick… we usually feed fewer people, so less food is necessary.
But, you may ask, how do you keep track of what you cooked and how much and who came and what was the weather like and …
Enter… the book.
Want to know what we cooked in 2016? Lasagna. We had 35 people, but had plenty left. It was a cool day, so we had some drinks left… etc. etc. etc.
How much did we buy? It’s on there.
The only thing I haven’t kept track of, was how much we spent on the meal. That’s too bad… but, I suppose we could go back and check our expenses!
Branding number two was always our bigger branding, more calves, more people, more food. Since we’ve already branded them ourselves with our new calf table, there won’t be a second branding.
It is interesting to go back and look and check out the food and drink and people… thanks to the Branding Book! Oh, and we’re having sloppy joes…Find me here!
