Melanie's Blog. Art, family, small farming, things that catch my eye.
Have something to say?
Basil, dill, and mesclun mix salad with almonds and parm sounds like heaven right now. Too bad no time for lunch.
Appetizers: Shrimp cocktail, Roasted garlic dip, Fancy cheese platter, Pickled cucumbers & garlic
Dinner: Big ass turkey, Gluten free stuffing, Homemade cranberry sauce w/ apples, Sweet potato salad, Mashed potatoes, Green beans, Butternut soup, Michael’s hard cider
Dessert: Chocolate cream pie, Pumpkin pie
We cooked all day! I hope the guys from Michael’s office have good appetites. The only thing missing is my mom and sister. I haven’t spent a holiday with either of them in at least 7 years. How sad is that? My dad came down for Christmas 5 years ago. That was.. Interesting. He always makes for an uncomfortable good time.
get in your car and drive to whole foods
buy non-gmo organic food
let the poor people eat the poison
Everything you can do helps.
The more who CAN buy non gmo/organic, farmers market faire, the better it is for everyone. It encourages the mainstream-ment (new word!) of good food. If you really want to help, grow organic veggies and give them to your foodbank.
We’ve had a bunch of sungold tomatoes, and two tiny tigerellas, but I ate the first Black Russian tomato off the vine today. Fuck. Yes. Tomatoes. Juicy, meaty, big-ass tomato goodness.
I wish I could grow noodles.
