Me-Oh-My! Sugar Mountain got a juicer, and it is heavenly! Never imagined how much joy would come with one of these bad boys, The Champion Juicer. I find much pleasure in knowing that in the morning, I will awaken to a tall glass of apple, grape and carrot juice -all grown here on the farm!
Maybe its just me, but this juice "latte" carries hope for a new day, all poured into a tall glass.
The other night I used SpiderWomanKnit's blogged recipe for Roasted Garlic and Cherry Tomatoes. Not being a huge 'right off the vine' tomato fan, I was bit nervous (silly me) and only roasted 2 small pans worth.
Those warm, sweet little candies literally knocked me back 3 steps! No joke. I tried to find someone to share my amazing discovery with ..."WOWZA these are AMAZING!" ... but quickly remembered I was the only one awake at that hour (mama's work is never done). Bummer for them. I ate lots right there, standing by the stove.
This evening I spooned some over dabs of locally crafted, jalapeno/garlic goat cheese and a hearty wheat cracker. Added a glass of wine, and I called that dinner! Added a second glass of wine, and I called that dessert. Cheers!
Picked some salsa makings from the garden this past weekend. Found that Finn likes little cherry tomatoes -not something I normally just pop into my mouth. Finn inspired me to venture out of my comfort zone and give it a try ... YUM!
I like my tomatoes chopped with peppers, garlic, onion, cilantro and a big twist of lime and dash of salt. However, I am proud to say that I have turned a new leaf and am excited to grow more next year. Stumbled on this great recipe just in time.
Out collecting Rocky Mountain Bee Plant seed from our native plant garden. Moving the seed to different restoration area on the farm. Loved spending the time with Lance - just him and me (add a few critters and one chicken). Rare thing that is.
