This week, in my kitchen, I have...
:: brought in a lot of eggs.
:: welcomed the return of rhurbarb, bought at the local market.
:: wondered, as I did last year too, just how it is that on this two-hundred year old farm, there is no rhubarb growing. (And then I planted some.)
:: dreamed a bit about fiddleheads. I think it's time.
:: danced the tricky dance of either very early or very late family dinners as baseball games and practices and dance recitals and rehearsals are in full swing for all.
:: embraced the slow cooker as some help in the matter.
:: savored our lunches together just a little bit more.
:: stopped to stand still as often as I can amidst the blur, to really notice all the love and happenings in the room.
:: eaten eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner as the girls are laying like wild, as Calvin decided to get out of the egg business, and as we wait for the new homes for some of his hens to be ready with friends of ours.
:: ensured that there is always a jar of the yummy and versatile Cilantro-Lime Cashew Cream Sauce on hand. Perfect for the top of nearly everything - from turkey chili to fried eggs.
:: had a child revolt on my hands when I went back to raisins after a stretch of adding carob chips to the much loved Leftover Oatmeal Muffins.
:: handed a dozen eggs to anyone walking into my kitchen.
:: with the return of some warmer days, welcomed back the daily lunchtime green smoothie that we seem to fall out of the groove of doing in the wintertime.
:: brought dinner outside as often as inside. The balance is tipping.
:: fallen quite in love with Monday night's Pizza By Calvin.
:: remembered how fabulous eating outside is for newly eating babies (and her clean up crew).
:: gathered with friends for a meal where we shared the last of our applesauce and they shared the last of their parsnips.
:: did I mention the eggs?
It's a busy place, this kitchen of ours!
