Project 2010:365 May 24-30

may:30 We went to the KC Hot Air Balloon Invitational, but this was the extent of the excitement. They started putting up their balloons, then had to take them back down due to lighting.

may:29 Fat (but getting thinner) Luna!

may:28 Pink oyster mushrooms. I pulled these out of the fridge just to take their photo! I still don't know what I'm going to do with them!

may:27 Would you look at these strawberries? We didn't make anything special out of them, just enjoyed them as is today!

may:26 Week 3 of our CSA - asparagus, pink (!) oyster mushrooms, strawberries, radishes, kale, salad mix


may:24 Keeping an eye - from a safe distance - on the bulldogs

may:16 These are pea shoots, they were in our CSA bag from this week. I've never had them before, any suggestions on how to use them? :)




Winston - Professional Bodybuilder

Winston asked that I do a 2nd photoshoot with him, this time outdoors. He has a show coming up, and wanted some photos to show to potential sponsers. Check out his new website too!

Project 2010:365 May 10-12

may: 12 We joined the Rolling Prairie Farmers Alliance to fill our produce needs, and this was our first bag! We got some bok choy, honey, oyster mushrooms, pea shoots, salad greens, and spinach. Can't wait for next week!

may:11 My baking frenzy continues with these whole wheat hamburger buns. They turned out smaller than I thought they would, so they'll be slider buns!

may:10 Have I mentioned how much I love Spring? Better get out there and enjoy it before it turns to a hot and humid summer! Our Springs aren't very long in KC!

Friday Finds!

I'm in love with this pillow! This monogrammed pillow is handmade by Letter Perfect Designs, and would be a lovely addition to your decor! Peggy has been collecting and buying buttons for years, and turns them into these wonderful creations! She accepts custom orders too! Check out her shop for more information! Happy Friday!

Slow Food KC Farm Tour

Saturday was sunny, breezy (slightly cool), and perfect to check out the Miami County, KS farm tour sponsored by Slow Food KC! It was a fun time! Here are a few things we did...

This is Prothe's Pecans, they had acres and acres of pecans! We've never eaten a pecan fresh off of the tree, much better than grocery store ones! There are also many different varieties, which I wasn't aware of...I thought a pecan was a pecan!

Next, we went to Alpacas 'R Diamonds and had a lot of laughs with these guys! (This is a llama, below are alpacas.)

She is spinning the alpaca fur into yarn. It's sooooo soft!

They were such hams for the camera! It actually looks like they are smiling! Of course, they were your best friend if you had alpaca food in your hand!

Feeding the alpaca.

Our last stop was at Somerset Ridge Winery. They have a very small operation, but the wine was very tasty!

Baby grapes!

Friday Finds!

Today on Friday Finds I'm featuring from Artisan Hands and her handmade herb garden stakes! With my humble little porch garden, I've become obsessed with all things garden. I'm hoping next year I can put a garden in the ground! Use these beautiful ceramic garden stakes to identify all of your fresh herbs and veggies! Have a lovely weekend!
