Good morning! This is a look at one of the berms at Basecamp!

Day 11



And these are overnight oats I made that I had soaked for twenty-four beforehand to improve digestability.



We applied another layer of whitewash (limewash) to the inside of Allerton Abbey.



This is kind of the plan for how we will be doing the cob floor of Allerton Abbey. The cob floor will pretty much be built in this ascending order: gravel, plastic billboard, one layer of cob, another layer of cob, and then, a layer of finish cob. We laid down the gravel portion of the floor in the room that we are whitewashing.



After working on Allerton Abbey, we looked at Cooper Cabin!





We also saw a birdhouse, the solar leviathan (?), a saw mill, and a skiddable canning kitchen.







And we looked at Willow Wonka!

GOOD morning! I made more fermented pancakes today! They turned out fluffier this time because I did not stir the batter after I had mixed it! This let the air stay inside of the pancakes!

Day 12





We mixed a lot of cob for one of the cob floors in Allerton Abbey! It was a lot of fun squishing and stomping the cob!















And we made a lot more progress on the rock patio today, too!

Good morning! You're welcome, Nancy! I'm glad to hear you're enjoying my posts!

Day 14

I fed Wharfie and Gert this morning! I had to pick up and move Wharfie to the other bowl, because Wharfie seems to like to believe that both bowls are for him. Gert got to eat in peace now!



I am making another slow food- Indian Style Pancakes (Dosas)! I am soaking the rice and lentils for twenty-four hours, and then, after processing the rice and lentils into a batter, I will be letting the batter sit for twenty-four hours before cooking them! So, it will take a total of forty-eight hours beforehand for the dosas to be ready.I will be cooking the dosas Tuesday morning!





I cleaned the kitchen in the Fisher Price House today to submit it for a Nest BB on kitchen cleaning.





To accompany the Indian-Style Pancakes (Dosas), I made Mint Chutney. The recipes I am using are from the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. I substituted whey with apple cider vinegar, and I used a mix of flax seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds instead of almonds. I used some coconut milk for about half of the water called for in the recipe. I also used a bit more onions than called for, because we have a lot of onions right now.





I went on another hike up to the "Volcano!"
