Do you guys deliver?
It is Saturday, the day I usually share some new (to me) blogs with you all. However this week I succumbed to PRETTY! and pretty SIMPLE. So I am being naughty and I have swiped some food pictures to show you. I am not sure if this is OK so don’t yell at me. Some of you have no emails for me to ask! I tried to call and ask permission but you would not answer the phone. Probably thought I was trying to sell something!
However I could not resist.
Roger, this is so beautiful and I live for beetroot. It is on my SuperFood list. Mine is not grown yet though so I can only look! I know you will not mind if I share this startling shot. It must be the colours or the simplicity but it grabbed my hungry eye.
And Mr Lebovitz you are a busy man with your new kitchen and everything, you probably did not see me knocking at your window asking if I could use this image! And you may have missed my ghostly tech digits creeping through the window grabbing a tiny bite to eat for the journey home! You would have given them to me anyway!
And look! Caroline, I am sure you will not mind me showing off these little lovelies. I will pop a dozen fresh eggs in the fridge for a week and make them soon. My eggs will not peel when they are too fresh. They never look this beautiful.
Taste Food will forgive me because I am one of her most ardent followers. And look at this salad! Doesn’t it just make you want to EAT! She won’t mind that I showed you!
just use butter has a rule about reproducing stuff without permission and I could not find a contact to ask and I do not know her as well as you guys, but if you love fennel, go there. She also has beautiful salads but I am addicted to fennel, though mine is still very small. All this lovely spring food!
From the land of olives and artichokes and vineyards comes another super salad. And beautiful gardens. And her grape leaves are not all curled and shriveled with frost like mine!
Tea and Cookies has made Waffles for breakfast from leftover sourdough starter.
This is what John is making for breakfast as we speak, he is the waffle guy! And Saturday is cooked breakfast day!
Social media update. I have recently opened a twitter account because they tell me that you cannot be a real writer without one. http://www.twitter.com/ceciliagunther. So if you are on twitter do join me. My Facebook address is of course right there on the right of this screen. Push LIKE so I can LIKE you back or buy you a glass of wine whichever comes first!
Good morning and whew! The weekend is here again. And now of course I am starving.
Last night was windy and stormy without the rain so with great regret I locked Mrs Vastness into the Maternity Ward Pen in the barn. I did not want her to start lambing in a field in the wind. She laid in there all night with her head turned towards the shut gate, deeply disappointed with me. I let her back out at 4 this morning when the winds had died down. No excitement in the night.
We talked to the farmer yesterday who rents the land around here and although he had started to plant the corn, he has stopped again because it is too dry. They never irrigate in this area. There is always snow then rain, and the ground holds the water well. So holding off planting because it is too dry is very unusual. And alarming. Last year we had too much rain. This year not enough. This is the way of weather.
Good morning. Have a lovely day. First thing this morning I will open the peacock gate before Kupa starts honking at me. He called out again yesterday morning when I was pulling on my boots to start the day while talking to the cats. He heard me. He is not just a pretty face!
