Ms Murky Mondays:
Vintage Wood Burning Cook Stoves

I know it's just June, but we are already thinking about next winter.  Afterall, isn't all the vegetable gardening really about the anticipation of putting up food for the winter?  But today I am not writing about my garden, I am writing about our decision to find a vintage wood-burning cook stove to replace our Vermont Casting wood stove.  My attitude is if we use the stove as auxiliary heat almost everyday of the winter, why not have one that I can cook on?

Is there anyone out there that has cooked on a wood-burning stove?  I'd love your tips!! I am excited for this project.  Here are some photos of some relics that we are looking at.  I kinda like the one that says "Hot Closet" - the precursor to the warming drawer.  Love it!!

Carole’s Concoctions:
Easy Pasta Dish

It's been quite a while since I've posted in Carole's Concoctions.  And, it's not because I haven't been concocting, I have been swamped.  Getting Heirloom Meals off the ground requires me to do many things. Blogging, radio interviews, TV show, fundraising, social media etc.  And then there's the rest of my life.  So, I am trying really hard to be more diligent about writing.

This past Sunday I sprained my ankle and have been sitting with my foot elevated for the past 3-4 days.  I didn't feel like cooking but never-the-less, we needed to eat.

I concocted up a pasta with tuna and artichoke hearts that was a keeper.  Here's the recipe.  I hope you enjoy it!
