Heirloom Meals Radio:
Lisa Newmann, Steffi Karp and Leni Aronson

Today Heirloom Meals Radio hosted the Fab 3, also known as the Aronson women. Leni and her two daughters, Steffi Karp and Lisa Newmann joined Carole for a hour long celebration of their family's Jewish-American food heritage complete with noodleful secrets and U.F.F.O. (Unidentified Flying Food Objects aka "hovering" food) tales. Today's show was an excellent reminder of the power of sharing meals together as a family and how our relationships with food and each other can continue to impact lives positively and deliciously. Leni imparted some wisdom that, "A guest is a gift from God!" so keep your ears, mouths and hearts open as you listen in on this fabulous Heirloom Meals chat.

Life at Boulderwood:
...and Wings!



The Japanese Beetles have arrived and are congregating among Boulderwood's flowerbeds and lawn!  It is too bad that they are such pests because their colors are quite extraordinary and fun to look at. Obviously native to Japan, these insects have no natural predators in the States so they can run amuck on plants like rose bushes, hops, grape vines and more by eating away the leafy parts.  According to some online sources, garlic, chives, catnip or soapy-water spray are some homemade deterrents for the Japanese beetle if you aren't into chemically insecticides like us and want to get rid of them. Here, we actually don't mind insects so much. The only spray we use on the farm is copper sulfate to prevent blight on our precious tomatoes.   With that said, enjoy your stay in the Berkshires, beetles and bug buddies!

Ms Murky Mondays:
The Three “F’s”: food, family and friendship.

I am reflecting on the weekend gone by and trust me the beach and the environs were lovely but the memories I carry with me are of food, family and friendship.

Food was and is a central theme to any gathering at my parents house and not surprisingly, I enjoyed a weekend with my Mom, Dad, sister and best friend, Anne Marie DeFreest  - making and eating amazing seafood. Friday night - fresh scrod baked with a garlic scape pesto, Saturday night - lobsters with homemade cole slaw and Sunday night - fettucine with a tomato pesto cream sauce with leftover lobster chunks.  Yep - all concocted, all delicious but all eaten and shared at a loving table.

And now I put out into the universe...please take care of Anne Marie - send prayers and love - she's having surgery tomorrow and I want her to know I love her and am sending every positive vibe I can muster up!! I am counting on you for our "old age" home!!!

Carole’s Concoctions:
Road Trip

Taking a road trip to the beach is the ideal concoction for this weekend.  On the menu will be shopping with mom, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, fresh seafood and toes in the sand.  We suggest whipping up a similar delight. It's summer, enjoy it!
