Capturing my love of whole foods, combined with the activity of a bustling kitchen.
A weekly collection of photos from the center of my home.

top to bottom: dried peaches from the dehydrator, chicken enchiladas with sauce and daiya dairy free cheese, on the grill, chicken salad with the last of the pickled radish pods, tomato/cucumber/blueberry salad, green beans roasted with grilled spring onions and garlic scapes, grilled peaches with molasses and coconut manna, picking fresh herbs from the garden to dry for tea, garden white currants, peach bbq sauce done, ingredients, and a few pics from the CSA this week (all now packed into my fridge and coolers).
One thing I love about this weekly blog hop is the recording of moments in the kitchen, because this time of year I often feel like I've been working non-stop and can't remember what I have made, or feel like I DIDN'T GET ANYTHING DONE. It is nice to have too many photos to post here, and have to sort and pick just a few. It makes me feel like I did make it through quite a bit of garden, CSA, or farmstand. That we ate well. Even though we had other appointments, or played at the park every evening, or went to the library more times than usual. That I'm *not quite* as behind as it always feels when the garden is going gangbusters. There is always more to do, more to dry, more to harvest, more canning, more freezing. The fridge is packed, the coolers are full, the counter has bowls of just picked something or other. Summer is abundant and full. I love seeing the freezer fill, the pantry packed, and the cycle repeating. xo
