Mornings usually start with me boiling water for tea or coffee and then cooking breakfast. A few days a week I throw on a pot of beans that will be our lunch and return again as a side dish to supper. It’s all part of my plan to stretch the (ever-rising) meat budget.
School is usually underway after little boys clear the breakfast dishes. And then, of course, by mid-morning someone’s in need of a snack. My four-ingredient energy bites are quick, grain-free, and just what the snack monsters ordered.
Lunch is usually eggs or beans with a starch and a vegetable like a salad. When it’s not a kefir dressing it’s a simple oil and vinegar – made all the more delicious with this buttery macadamia nut oil. The green and white peppercorns and Himalayan salt sent to me by Mountain Rose Herbs also make a great seasoning combination.
Now that it’s a frigid 80 degrees most days (I miss you, autumn), I’m trying to make stock more often. One day soon those roosters are going to be in that pot and our little piece of home will be a much quieter place.
Speaking of comfort food, these 100% rye noodles were an absolute hit when covered in a thick tomato sauce. I must make these again soon.
And if that wasn’t enough carbs, I have been churning out skillet after skillet of potatoes fried in bacon grease. To add variety I like to switch things up with these five interesting ways to serve the potato. Topping any potato with Papa’s favorite seasoning salt is always a winner.
The kitchen closes after dinner as the sun begins to go down, me sharing my plate with the baby snuggled in my lap. As dusk descends the boys head on down the road to the neighbor’s house to pick up two quarts of goat milk . Dishes are almost always done the next morning as little heads hit their pillows.
And it all starts over again the next day as I clutch my cup of tea and watch the sun come up.
