Just taking a moment to check in and say that we were so blessed that our farm was spared any major damage from tropical storm irene. As a state, though, Vermont was devastated. Entire towns were under water... 270 roads were washed out or submerged... homes, covered bridges and farms were washed away...



Taking a moment to think of all those affected.

There are many ways to help.

this moment


Joining in soulemama's {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

sometimes it's hard to find the time to cook all of our vegetables when we're so busy growing them. some things that have been on the menu a lot this summer are deep dish pizza* (loaded with garden goodies),


this simple Asian Cabbage Salad from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home,

and pico de gallo--where we just throw together tomatoes, onions, cilantro and lemon juice (and avocado if we happen to have it) :)
*just the dough recipe from America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book--
haven't tried the sauce part of the recipe--we just use our homegrown puree

sneaking in another moment from our trip...we are still missing the lake, the dunes and family.
