Week 20 - A Bit Preoccupied
Bacon wrapped braised rabbit with fennel, sweet potato mash and swiss chard from our garden.
Fended for ourselves.
BBQ chicken (we finally had to get rid of Escape Chicken) with cauliflower puree
Puree of Squash soup with bacon from squash we grew.
Eggs, sauteed potatoes and mushrooms from the farmers' market, and Sausage from Angelo's Smokehouse
We went to an Urban Farmer get-together to discuss the goings-ons this Spring.
Grassfed London Broil with rice.
Wow! What a whirlwind week this has been! It all started on Wednesday when the Dervaes Family (look them up if you don't know them because I refuse to link to them now) posted a letter on their website. At first I thought it was a joke. When I realized it wasn't I was livid. And disappointed. The following days didn't make me calmer. The more I thought about it angrier I got, which resulted in a post that was more snark than anything. Definitely not typical for me. Don't get me wrong, I can be snarkier than most, but I try to at least have some level of professionalism on my blog. Because I realize what the Dervaes' don't - the Internet is FOREVER.
In other news though, we went whole hog and bought a 250+ lb hog. Next week it will be slaughtered and butchered. Just think of all the sausage I'll be able to make! I'm currently curing some Maple cured smoked bacon and brining a brisket for corned beef.
