Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Pete and Gerry’s Heirloom Eggs

For the next several Mondays I will be giving THANKS to each of my Heirloom Meals' Thanksgiving sponsors.  First up is Pete and Gerry's Heirloom Eggs.

Pretty much, hands down the perfect sponsor for Heirloom Meals.  Not only do they raise and sell organic, heirloom eggs, they are a family-owned business from New England.  They are philosophically aligned with Heirloom Meals' desire to use only real, in season ingredients that are either local or sustainably grown. 

Their mission:

"At Pete and Gerry's, we are a family farm that has produced high quality eggs for four generations in Monroe, NH, in the heart of the White Mountains. We believe in providing you, our customer, with fresh organic, cage free, omega-3 eggs from hens that are Certified Humane. As our family farm has grown our commitment to you has remained unchanged and we hope that you will enjoy our eggs as much as we do!
Happy chickens lay better eggs™"

Many of you know that I have chickens and Pete and Gerry's is my go-to egg when my chickens are in a laying lull or if I need more than my flock produces!!  They also have chickens that lay those gorgeous blue eggs.  When you buy their eggs, it's like Easter all the time!!

Pasture-raised eggs are healthier and rich in omega3 and have a deep orange yolk and are full of flavor.  Try making a frittata or some custard with their eggs and you'll taste and see the difference.  Worth every extra penny!

Thank you Pete and Gerry's!  You have helped me realize a dream!

Erin Gernon

It is only fitting that when I sit down to write my Monday post (which I have been remiss in writing) that I write about my beloved intern, Erin Gernon.  Erin joined me on June 20 and returned to Hiawatha, Kansas on August 20th.  Two months flew by and we accomplished much!!

Erin will return to Smith College in 2 weeks as a senior.  And, I am happy to report that Smith is still attracting the best and the brightest!!  Erin brought her smarts, can-do attitude, and tenacity. When combined with her Midwestern humility, she was a subtle powerhouse of capability and competence. I was beyond impressed and will miss her dearly!!

This one's for you Erin!!  I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!  You are amazing!

Ms Murky Mondays:
Happy Fourth of July!

I love celebrating our independence.  But it's not just freedom from the British or the birth of our nation that gives me pause, it's all the freedoms and rights that that independence gave us - speech, religion, bear arms, gender equality etc.

Thank you founding father's, and thank you all who have fought to keep our freedoms.

Evolution of a Garden

Last year my garden consisted of 12 tomato plants, 20 garlic plants, some asparagus, broccoli and onions on a patch of dirt that measured 10 x 10.

This year, Jim and I transformed a 41 X 20 foot plot:

Into this:

Will keep you updated on our progress......
