  • Very fun to find this spread in the @womansworkco catalogue that arrived with yesterday's mail. Thank to so very much, Dorian, for all of your support. I ADORE my @womansworkco gloves. Friends, if you're shopping for durable, beautiful gloves made in the U.S., look no further. I wear my @womansworkco gloves out to the chicken coop every morning and can't recommend them enough!

  • Still thinking about last noght's sensational @rhubarbavl 1-year anniversary dinner. We adore the restaurant and chef John Fleer's elegant yet approachable southern Appalachian cuisine. Last night's Sunday Supper featured @bentonsbacon, @cruzefarmgirl, and Jolley Farm. It was a meal I won't soon forget, especially on account of these @sunbursttrout filets wrapped in @bentonsbacon served atop brown butter braised Savoy cabbage (that cabbage changed my life, no joke!). Job well done, @rhubarbavl!

Weekend Eats: Tortilla Espanola

We munched on this olive, tomato and potato bit of deliciousness just a bit ago. Hubs sliced the potatoes on a mandoline first, then lightly pan fried them in olive oil. Next went a bit of whisked eggs over the potatoes. We let those eggs set up a bit over medium-high heat, then added the remaining bit in the mixing bowl, along with the olives. The whole concoction then spent a wee bit of time in the oven under a low broiler, was cut into wedges, and then covered in chopped tomatoes.

Simple, fresh, delicious. Couldn’t ask for a better way to start a Sunday. Hope your weekend is going swimmingly.

    That looks delish! I made up a fresh batch of your blueberry lemonade from Taproot today. It was so refreshing and yummy. Thanks!

    We love making tortilla(more my job) and one of our girls will eat it. My wife was born in Naples so we normmaly make frittatas, our daughter that eats the torrilla will almost devour a frittata by herself. It is also a great way to get veggies in their diet without them thinking about it.
