  • I'm only 30 pages into @tea_austen's new book
  • 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.

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.
