Recently I have been thinking about how to move this forward.  To me, food blogging is my hobby, but it's also a passion and something that I truly have a lot of interest in.  So I'm changing.  My blog, perhaps my approach, websites, probably a lot!  I want to expand and hopefully brand my unique perspective of cooking in a way that people can find it approachable and fun.  So give me a few weeks and look forward to some big new things!

Garden Update- Rabbit Food

I'm about 2 months into my garden and things are progressing. "Progressing nicely" might be a stretch, mainly because I'm not really getting the total yields I want, but I think that has a lot do with a) this is my first garden and b) the weather can't make up its mind. But I'm actually harvesting veggies, so I really shouldn’t be complaining.

I have two separate gardens going, one a raised bed, and one a converted flower bed (I think that's what it was) that I have most of my herbs and viney things in. The raised bed recently yielded all the radishes it was going to give me, fewer than I expected though. I may have not thinned them enough, understandably, because I hate thinning things, it's like killing a bunch of plants! But they have finished and now I have planted beans in their wake. I'm up to my ears in lettuce now as well. If you have not ever grown your own lettuce, I highly recommend it. It just tastes so much more…lettucy. There is no other way to describe it, really.

I have tomatoes in now, I believe 10 plants. Yes, I do realize that's a lot, but we really like tomatoes. I can't wait for those. And I have a pretty sound herb rotation going as well, something I'm also fond of because having them on hand is easier and cheaper than buying them.

So why write all this? Well, it's nice to show off what I've been doing, sure, but it's also lessons people can use to either avoid or do what I did to better their own garden. I will update again in July, hopefully I can keep the birds and rabbits out until then.

Frying the Turkey

Over Memorial Day we decided to have a cook out (as is tradition). I decided to do something a little bit different this year, though. I received a frying/boil kit for Christmas last year, so I decided to give turkey frying a go. I have deep fried one other turkey in my life, at Em's house for Thanksgiving one year. And it was awesome. So why not?
