Mostly-homegrown party time! By “party” I mean just me and G. having dinner as usual.
Kitsap-grown flank steak, from our freezer cow (thanks cow), more or less following the Simply Recipes version.
OK, I typed the above nine days ago, and I don’t remember what all I was planning to say. But I suspect that [...]
We had a difficult-yet-good couples therapy appointment from 4:30-5:30. I suggested we walk around the block afterwards and then after that I thought maybe we should go on a small date. We ended up at the counter of Hitchcock again, where we each had a Hitchcock Martini (this month it’s gin, cardamom bitters, and some [...]

Chicken fried steak!! Kitsap-grown top round steak, dredged in homegrown duck eggs and homemade/homegrown goat milk whey (left over from a cream cheese attempt), then in organic Utah flour, homegrown cayenne, and regular S&P.

G. also made gravy with Butler Green Farms pork breakfast [...]
