Peach Cobbler and Flour Sacks

Another group is scheduled to visit the Cross Shield Ranch this month. Thirty visitors from Tennessee will be sharing in all the exciting events surrounding life on a Texas Ranch.
My job is to make peach cobbler for the crowd and I'm looking forward to the opportunity to partake once again in this entertaining event. My son recently sent me this new recipe and I'm anxious to try it out.
Another part of the event is taking pictures of the visitors riding horses, and I make prints for them to take home with them. It's another part of the program for me.
I'm currently hand-painting flour sack dishtowels for the gift shop, and have lots of other things in the works to share in the gift shop. So far, we haven't had enough groups to make it worth the effort, but hopefully things will take off and we can include other local artisans who are experts in metal working, leather-tooling and quilting. Lots of talent in these here parts, and bringing it together in one location is going to be fun!
