  • This tuna-mack (mackerel!) casserole puts a divine spin on the tired old classic. It took every ounce of willpower not to go back for thirds! It was egg noodles cooked with tuna and mackerel in a white sauce with eggs from our hens, flavored with tarragon, black pepper, cornichons, then mixed with bread crumbs and aged cheddar, and topped with both as well. Before it was served, it was topped with kalamata olives, capers, sour pickles, and cilantro. So good!
  • Sometimes being Huxley's mom means dressing up as Wonder Woman (to his tiny Batman) while feeding the wood stove, locking up the chickens, and helping @glennbenglish make dinner. Because, #mom.
  • I'll admit that it's pretty, but we three Englishes (and our feathered friends!) are SO very ready to be done with snow and frost and chill.
  • It's always a good day when @joythebaker stops by. Thanks for sharing food stories, sipping tea, strolling the property, and playing with our Wild child. Safe travels on your southern road trip, and beyond!!!
  • Was weeding the patio and looked up to find this little gnome picking daffodils.
  • Follow the red brick road? Indeed I did.
  • The best part of @fernworks and @killaspro traveling to Southeast Asia in January? The Thai food cooking kick they've been on since their return. Still thinking about these crazy delicious wings @fernworks made last night (using the recipe from @pokpokpdx). Thanks for having us over, buddies!
  • Back at home but missing this sight, from #selbygardens.
  • Family, gardens, and sea creatures are what characterized our time in Florida. I could stare at these exquisite jellyfish all day.
  • Nothing could be finer than to be back in North Carolina. Missed these mountains something fierce!
  • A late winter trip to Florida was exactly what we three Englishes needed, but we are glad to be headed back home to greet the spring in the magical mountains of western North Carolina.
  • Something wicked this way comes. At the Magic Kingdom. First time here as a parent. At Huxley's request, went on the Haunted Mansion ride first. Let the good times roll!

Little Trip To the Big City

Happy weekend, friends! Hubs, Huxley and I hopped on two planes, one taxi, and one train yesterday to head up to N.J./NYC for s short work/vacation jaunt. I’m giving What I’m Digging a little break this week, as, in all honesty, I was too busy writing and cooking and packing and teaching a class and more all week in prep for our trip to really spend much time online. I’ll be back with my discoveries next week, though!

We’re off to a pumpkin patch in just a bit, to munch on apple cider doughnuts, sip hot apple cider, go on a hayride, and wade ankle-deep in pumpkins. I LOVE this kind of thing!

I’ll be back early next week, to give you the scoop on what we’re doing up here. I’ll tell you this much-I’m here on account of these folks and will be attending a very exciting dinner on Monday night here. Details to come!

Oh, before I go, I wanted to let you know I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge. I’m chatting about making a apple-stamp table runner. It’s incredibly easy to make and will give your space a whimsical, customize autumnal touch.

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!
