This particular combination of wine, Kurtwood Farm Cheese, and oysters was so stunning I had to share it with you. It was even more magical eaten with the eagles calling above, the song birds singing, and the smells of the Puget Sound and the forest breezing gently all around.
We do not need baby goats. Obviously. That is ridiculous. Intellectually speaking, it makes no sense at all. But put a baby goat and an intellectual in front of us, and the baby goat wins, every time.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! And you don’t need St. Patrick’s Day to eat corned beef and cabbage, of course. So, happy day to you, whatever day it is that you’re making this. We used Alton Brown’s recipe to brine the brisket. That takes ten days. Here’s what you do once your brisket is ready.
When we first tasted this soup (modified from a recipe from Nostrana in Portland), it was so rich, complex, and almost smoky tasting, we thought maybe we’d accidentally put meat in it without noticing. But, we’re guessing the real reason it tastes so great is because both the beans and chard are fresh from the farm. We got ours from the farmers at Alm Hill. If you’re in Seattle, we recommend paying a visit to their stand at your local farmer’s market this weekend, and picking up some beans and a mix of their braising greens.
After our winter garden harvest, we have a lot of root vegetables to eat! One easy, delicious weeknight dinner is roasted root vegetables over red lentils.
After a hearty crepe breakfast for fortification, we went outside for some winter garden assessment. Along with a lot of raking and picking up fallen pears and apples, there was one last winter vegetable harvest, too. We certainly do not need to visit the farmer’s market for a while. We have one in our own back yard.
We picked up these kabocha squash at Seattle’s U-District Farmers’ Market a few weekends back, from the farmers at Alm Hill Gardens. And we have a freshly made pot of turkey broth ready to go, so this risotto was an easy dinner to make. (If you don’t have fresh turkey broth, any type of broth will also work.)
