As summer started providing her abundance of sweet jewels, the kids and I gleaned a HUGE amount of perfectly ripe plums (thanks neighbor) and made a plum cake for Farm Supper. I also made cheese with Gigi (ricotta and mozzarella) while Kelly scoured the neighborhood for squash blossoms to pick (with permission). We orchestrated delicious morsels of squash blossoms stuffed with homemade herbed cheese, battered with our girls' eggs and fried to golden crunchy perfection. Of course more salad and cherry tomatoes and handmade foccacia with garden veggies and homemade mozzarella. We were so happy and satiated and above all grateful to be sharing a beautiful and healthy meal with friends and neighbors that we all found out our back (or front) doors. Here is how is looked:
TWe have shared a couple of more farm suppers, all wonderful and speak often at our amazement on the meal that is before us and more importantly, the community which we are creating. We plan on continuing Farm Supper through the Fall and Winter months. We talk of dressing our own home raised animals to share for the meal, and there are soups and brews and tuna and winter greens and before I get too far ahead, the end of summer harvest (tomatoes, peppers, squash, oh my). Join our Farm Supper movement. Build community and marvel at your neighbors' secret talents and creativity.
