When I contemplate summer meals, this recipe has been a favorite for years! I rarely follow a recipe, so if it actually ends up written down on paper, I know it is here to stay for all of eternity! The Fruit and Curry Chicken Salad is a light, refreshing meal or snack filled with flavor! And, as long as your chicken is already cooked, you don’t even have to turn on the oven! Now that is a summer bonus! Continue reading “Fruit and Curry Chicken Salad”
Borage is my all time favorite annual herb to grow! It is not only stunningly blue, with a mild cucumber taste, but it is my yearly gift to the bees. I can get lost in the moment, while daydreaming among the borage plants, observing and photographing the bees at work…
Strawberry season is upon us! Last week brought many challenges to the farm, due to extreme weather conditions. The days were in the 90s, which was not ideal for most plants or humans! Let’s face it, it was “fry an egg on the driveway” kind of HOT! With the high heat and pounding rains over the weekend, many of our sweet berries became chicken treats. I should probably warn my egg customers that if the eggs are pink, when they crack them open, it’s from the huge volume of strawberries the girls have been consuming! Needless to say, we still have plenty of strawberries to go around! This thought brings me to the delightful word “scone”.
This weekend, I felt the pull to create a breakfast cookie, filled with health and wellness! As much as I love eggs, toast and bacon, there are times I need something fast. I have never been a fan of cereal, for it doesn’t fill me up for long. Before I am finished with morning chores in the barn, my tummy is already asking for more! Plus, I have three teenagers that eat…constantly! Having healthy choices for them is always my goal. If teenagers see freshly baked cookies on the counter, they disappear instantly! They don’t even think to ask what healthy goodness I might have hidden in these morning treats! These cookies are filled with such amazing goodness…shhhhhh…don’t tell the kids! Enjoy!
