Turkey club sandwich! Heyday turkey breast from last fall, roasted with homegrown herbs; homegrown, home-cured and -smoked bacon; Butler Green tomatoes (!); homegrown lettuce; homemade mayo from fresh homegrown egg; Udi’s white sandwich bread (we are doing a gluten-free experiment at our house).
Also an artichoke! Which I grew! Served with more of the homemade [...]
For the past few lunches, and today’s dinner, I have had a delightful meal of homemade homegrown chicken-liver pâté on a Macrina baguette, eaten with some homemade pickled garlic scapes and an apple from the tree outside friend Anne’s new house.
I usually eyeball the measurements and season it to taste, but here is the recipe [...]
We processed chickens last weekend and on Sunday night we did a simple salt-and-pepper, butter-basted roast chicken (425º until done). Today G. fried up some homegrown, homecured bacon, then warmed slices of the Sunday chicken breast in the same pan after draining it (pan, not breast). Layered onto Macrina herb buns with just-picked garden tomato, [...]
In transit home from Austin. I had some airport bloody mary, some airport vegetarian sub sandwich, and some homemade beef jerky.

With Tillamook cheddar cheese and some random storebought horseradish, on Macrina herb rolls. (I didn’t check the ingredients until I got home, but the herbs [...]
We were a little stir-crazy after having been snowed in, more or less, all week. I worked from home all week because it wasn’t convenient and/or safe to get to Seattle. (My bus didn’t run for most of the week due to snow and ice.)
Anyway, we were feeling like shut-ins so we went out [...]
French dip sandwiches! Made in the crock pot! Extremely loosely based on this recipe, but actually very different.
We used a top round steak (really mostly a roast), and instead of Lipton Onion Soup Mix (?!?!?!!) we ground up some dehydrated onion combined with homemade celery salt (dehydrated celery leaves crunched up and mixed 1:1 [...]
We went to pub trivia and so we got home late and I was sad and cranky. I had some horrible nacho cheese Doritos at trivia. When we got home G. made me a turkey club sandwich, with leftover homegrown turkey obviously, home-cured Island-grown bacon, another Kittitas Greenhouse tomato, some Butler Green Farms salad mix, [...]
