An Educational Friendship

March 31, 2011

Faith and Tate are the best. We are always learning new things from them, like fermenting drinks and new foods and handmade this and that. And I like to think the information exchange is two ways. After all, otherwise they wouldn’t know as much about Belgian beers! After a pumpkiny snack this afternoon – classy in […]

Oats Of Steel

March 30, 2011

Yesterday Matt stopped into Integral Yoga [a grocery store, not a yoga studio!] and I requested he pick up a few bulk bin items – non-toasted buckwheat (which I haven’t been able to find) and steel cut oats. The buckwheat so I can finally try one of Ashley’s creations and the steel cut oats to […]

After working on my massive Home Clean Home post, Matt and I scooted out for a fundraiser at Cville Coffee for the Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund hosting none other than the famous Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm! I’ve been an admirer of Joel’s since first reading Michael Pollan’s books and was excited to […]
