Pete’s Supper – and Lunch – and Maybe Dinner Again…

This one was all about the mushrooms! I sauteed thinly sliced onion and big chunks of mushrooms (white button, shitake, king oyster) in olive oil before adding the juice of a large can of diced tomatoes and covering to simmer over low heat for about half an hour. Once the mushrooms had cooked down to …

A Very Pleasant Autumn Day!

Today was lovely! It was only about 60 at the highest but the sun was bright and the colors were stunning! As it turns out, on this lot there is very little variety of color, but the yellows and golds of the birches are brilliant in the sunshine! There are also shades of green, of …

Our Weekend

Pete and I had a lovely weekend together! I’ll just share a few pictures here for your enjoyment! My beautiful sweet gurl Maisie, just being cute. My handsome hot hunk of a husband grilling my steak for supper. The flock is growing! About 10 were stopping by to see what the birds left behind early …

Lazy Tuesday

Yesterday Pete made an all-day fire to enjoy outside. It was a beautiful day in the upper 70’s so we spent most of the day out under the canopy. Here are some photos from our day! Actually this is from Monday, but it’s pretty much the same every day…in total we had the 17 turkeys …

What an Evening! What a FEAST!

Tonight Pete and I had such a lovely evening! We’d planned this enormous meal on the grill, then it started raining, then it cleared up, then we could do it! Pete also started a fire in the fire ring. After the rain it was in the mid-70’s and breezy outside, just perfect! Below is a …

24 Hours In The Life…

A couple of photos from last night, first… Maisie and Chuy when I tell them to “look at me” – it’s a great thing for them to know when they’re getting too interested in something that they shouldn’t be! The underside of a moth on the bedroom window – pretty cool, eh? Today we did …

A Favorite Low Carb Porkies Snack

Well, I call it a snack, but bigger portions make it a meal – and a very filling one at that! I spread some pork rinds on a parchment-covered baking sheet (so the cheese comes off easily) and cover them with shredded cheese; today it was sharp cheddar. Then I put them in a 325F …

Now THIS is a Sandwich! (Low Carb)

I used the 0 net carb bread I got from Costco, the brand is Natural Ovens Bakery, for this sandwich. And this will fill me up for the rest of the day, no doubt! Since it is grilled, the outside is buttered. The inside has mayo, roast beef, a slice of tomato, some romaine, and …

Today’s Delicious Chicken and Squash

Often I roast my prepared chicken thighs over a bed of vegetables, typically zucchini or yellow squash, but this time I used a halved and cleaned very small spaghetti squash with a thigh over each of them. When they were done I mashed butter and shredded italian cheese in each squash half. I love my …
