Our friend Angie went for a fishing trip and caught us some black rockfish out of Neah Bay. We’d never had this firm-fleshed white fish before. It’s reminiscent of red snapper in flavor and texture – which means it’s delicious. Thank you, Angie. We hope you have another successful fishing trip soon.
It’s cherry season on the east side of Washington state. Which means we’re seeing a bounty of freshly picked cherries.
Last week, we had the joy of watching our friend Jessica’s chickens while she was out of town. Spending time with the three ladies is hilarious, entertaining, and means all the fresh eggs you can eat. Hooray! Of course, we have to thank the ladies for all their greatness.. which we do… with an ingredient guaranteed to win over any chicken’s heart. Here come the girls!
We spent the weekend at the FoodShed auxiliary (our cabin) down on the Peninsula. October has been unseasonably dry here, so we had the luxury of exploring our area in warm weather, under stunning blue skies. Part of our tour involved a stop at Minterbrook Oyster Company, which is our go-to place for local shellfish.
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.
As April starts to come to an end, our little vegetable garden is beginning to get ready for May. And we’re giving it a hand. The radishes need a little thinning, but neither of us can bare to let these darlings go to waste. Look how cute they are! Peter Rabbit would be a bit envious.
