I have been baking up a storm these days, but have neglected my blogs oh so much… tis the season I guess. I have a million images of things I have been making, however I just haven’t found the time to share recipes and post them.

I feel I am still morning the loss of my garden, and I am eager to get back into the growing season: I miss sun warmed tomatoes, and fresh greens and herbs, and my heart breaks when I have to buy lettuce these days! The one thing I am certainly not buying currently is eggs! we are flush with eggs… our little ladies are up to 7 eggs a day, this has meant lots of frittatas, macaroons, and fried egg samies!

Egg-citing news!

WE HAVE EGGS!

Our little feathered ladies have kicked into action, and after a week away from Paradise we came home to 4 little brown eggs in the winter coop. I stepped on the first one and stared questioningly at the other 3… “hmm what is that?” I though, in the red warm lamp light of the coop I suspected poop of some creature much larger and then as I noticed I had just cracked something underfoot… the realization of egg production came rushing to mind. Eggs!, they are eggs! WE HAVE EGGS! Eggs! finally after all these months and the last few weeks of guessing when we would get our first egg, and there it was under my furry sorrel boot!

This silent snowy winter wonderland that is upon us is really  calming and crisp, yet I feel panicky about everything we have yet to do! The coop still isn’t to the state of finish I had hoped, our root cellar never got built, our mud room addition is a work in progress, and my freezer is still full of fruit awaiting jamming. I picked up my old dehydrator on our little trip and am looking forward to using it! Also got a old deep freeze from the grandparents which means we can buy a 1/2 a bison or lamb, locally naturally raised, that is if we don’t fill it with venison hunted right here on our land with our bows.

No recipes today, just a happy little post celebrating our egg production system moving forward!
