  • 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!
  • Surfside in Sarasota at the in-law's lovely home, light breeze, good reads, good times. Next, on to my dad's place in Tampa. Florida, you're doing good. Reeeeeeeeal good.

What I’m Digging

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been unseasonably warm here this week. Which works fine by me. Planting kale, chard, and brussels sprouts or sipping hard cider in 70 degree weather is some kind of wonderful.

I’ve got a Small Measures post up on Design Sponge. Today I’m sharing my recipe for homemade chai. We drink cup after cup of this all season long. Warms the body and the soul, promise.

In other news, here’s a smattering of this’s and that’s that caught my attention this week:
*Fight the flu with food.
*Easy pasta from scratch.
*8 best fall foods.
*Lady Gaga is getting into the bottled water business (I hope the bottle is compostable!).
*Tanya’s blog is truly lovely.
*Christopher Kimball’s approach to food (it’s a long, but interesting read).
*Edible Selby in person!
*Pumpkin + donut=happiness.
*Really excited about this book.

We’re hoping to visit Hickory Nut Gap Farm on Sunday. It’s the last of their Harvest farm days, with face-painting, a pumpkin patch, hard cider, and more. Looks like loads of fun.

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