wanna see an amazing sunset? here ya go. my friend, JUGM, did a post about red skies at night and how they affect sailors...read the comment section of her post. her and i have a nice banter about sailors everywhere and our auntie's visiting...bahahahahah! sorry to the men who read here and don't want anything to do with that!
here's The Man, looking all hot, getting ready to go to our friend P's birthday party in our sister community of Fourchu last week. ladies - avert your eyes - he's MINE!!!
and here's me. yes, i've been called smurfette, short, tiny...and most recently my friend SciFiChick called me vertically-challenged. in fact, i think her exact words were "girl, i knew you were vertically-challenged but NOT THAT vertically-challenged!". i love her. but yes, i have a hit out on her.
here's some yummy bulgogi with rice, homegrown green beans sauteed in butter and some kimchi. nothing like it after a long day's work.
kids - can anyone help me identify these bushes? are they elderberry? we have been looking at pics on the internet and they seem to be elderberry but not sure.
if they are - can you say elderberry wine? elderberry tincture? elderberry tea??? oh kids, i know that you can!!!
i hate to sound smug....PioneerP, mmpaints and Sci - eat your heart out with envy. this was yesterday's harvest.
bahahahahahah! oh i know that it's sad but hey - at least it's something! until the end of august when our harvest will really come in. look what we made with our sad little harvest:\
and here's some more harvest - we are eating local food and our own harvest 3 meals a day. not too shabby!
we eat a lot of steak around here. it's local and delicious. the stir fry is all our own veg as are the tomatoes!
here's some quinoa tabouleh for dinner - yum!
more harvest. this is the time of year when we eat our own fresh, home-grown food daily and it feels wonderful!
local AND cheap sausages - they are sooo spicey and tasty!
and yummy potatoes pulled out of the ground, sliced and fried in butter! they are deelish! we are in for a super harvest of potatoes this year, which is a good thing, because we eat a LOT of potatoes. think of Bubba in the movie Forrest Gump - "fried shrimp, boiled shrimp, shrimp on the barbie....". well that's us except with potatoes "fried potatoes, smashed potatoes, potatoes on the barbie, baked potatoes, potatoes au gratin, scalloped potatoes, twice-baked potatoes..." - we loooove potatoes!!! bahahahahaha! i hope that you all had a nice weekend.
