Ms Murky Mondays:
Ohio here we come!

Heirloom Meals is going on a road trip!  

At the end of last week we were invited by Country Living Magazine  to join them in Columbus, Ohio in September for their annual Country Living Fair (2010 Country Living Fair Ohio).  
 
 
Heirloom Meals will be performing 2 cooking demos there but with all that we are involved with this summer we have yet to decide what we will be sharing with our audience. Do you think you have a cherished family recipe/menu that could wow our fall crowd? As you know, we are always keeping our ears, eyes and mouths open to your dishes and stories so let us know!

East Warren Rd, Warren 4th of July Parade,


Thunder Road Stock Car Races,


dairy cows, starlit nights, great food.


Route 100, covered bridge, Mad River, No bugs.

A place I know so well and miss dearly.
A soul refreshed. A dream reborn.

A True Farm-to-Table dinner

Who walks and talks country living better than the Berkshires anyway?!

Today the Heirloom Meals office printer has seen a lot of action as we are designing, printing and crafting the invitations for the Berkshire Grown fundraiser dinner that will be hosted on Boulderwood Farm at the end of August.  Several days ago we received some exciting news that the current editor-in-chief of Country Living magazine, Sarah Gray Miller, agreed to come and be the featured guest for our event.  Our hope is that by sharing with Sarah how BG influences the local economy, lifestyles, food and environment Country Living might support our cause by creating a How-To for other interested individuals and organizations who would like to start similar movements in their communities. We think an online database where people could find their local CSAs and farmers markets would be spectacular too.



For the party we are hoping to have a true farm-to-table dinner out in the pasture with a full spread of heirloom meals from our archives that lend themselves to the in season produce available to us. We are even asking attending guests to send in heirloom recipes for us as we might feature them on the menu as well! In the next few weeks we will start honing in on the final menu probably around the same time that we will be cooking and photographing recipes for our HM website which we will no doubt be sharing with you!

Happy Murky Monday!

P.S. Don't forget to check us out and show your support for Heirloom Meals at http://kck.st/cJw7ty where we are raising money for said website.  Donate a $1 or $10 or $25 or more! Thanks!

Ms Murky Mondays:
Solstice Soiree

In celebration of the longest day of the year and the first harvest of summer we are hosting a Solstice Soiree at Boulderwood Farm! Every year during the solstice the sun shines directly down the second floor hallway making a spectacular light display as if Boulderwood was Stonehenge itself. Since it is amusing to extend metaphors, we, the misplaced druids, took it as a sign that we must party!


Tonight our table will boast fresh from the sea Maine lobsters, burgers of all breeds, beef, lamb and turkey, radish dip, garlic scape and white bean dip, garlic scape pesto (delicious on burgers!),  roasted fingerling potatoes, lush green salad and local blueberry pies for dessert.  You might be wondering how we can have lobsters without corn but we are sticking to the harvest theme and will have to throw another party once corn is in season.
