  • 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!

  • KC says:

    That pizza looks amazing. The tilapia green house is really interesting too. The gal I used to get raw milk from was trying out raising tilapia. Though her tank for them wasn’t nearly as snazzy. What a great weekend.

  • Ha! That is exactly what I thought when I saw the archery pics- “Katniss hair!!!”. I would love to hear more about the tilapia green house. I am very interested in this.

  • Oh goodness! Is that your backyard? If so, it’s gorgeous! I have been contemplating on landscaping and gardening our front and back yard for the longest time but the entire projects feel a little overwhelming. Can you recommend where I should start?

    • kristina-no, it’s not our backyard. the top few images are from the ashevillage institute, which is close to downtown asheville, while the ones following the archery lesson are from our the home of our friends andy and katherine, who live in west asheville. both locations have hand-built outdoor ovens, which was pretty sweet to view. we cooked pizzas in andy and katherine’s oven on saturday, after our archery lesson. SO tasty!

    Was also wondering about those ovens, would you know if there was a workshop in the oven construction?
    Thank you for any info, Chele
