Wowsa, I can’t believe the bounty from my little 10’x15′ garden this summer. Unbelievable! I usually go a little bonkers when planning the garden, but this year I decided to scale back a bit…and still, just such a lovely amount of food. Patrick and I just finished a delicious meal of pozole soup that I started in the crock-pot earlier today. Such a nourishing and easy soup. To spruce the basic recipe up a bit, I added a bunch of garden carrots, a patty-pan squash and a few tomatoes. YuMmm’ers!
After dinner, we tackled a long put off project and ground and made about 30 pounds of pork and duck sausage from our pig we raised last year, and all the duck from hunting season this last winter. Let me tell you, friends…we now have a lot of sausage. Come on over for a BBQ, I will roast you up on heck of a weenie! 🙂
Speaking of hot-dogs, I am so excited to be leaving for a few days on a little backcountry trip with a lovely girlfriend and her beautiful dog. I can’t wait to spend a few days in the mountains, with this woodland beauty. For my dinner, I decided to bring some of the sausages and a lot of veggies from the garden. I have to admit, that I am not the most weight conscious person when planning a backpacking trip. This both works out to my benefit and to my demise. While I might have the most delicious food and booze on the trip, I also have a case of the achey shoulders and a cricky neck…all worth it, if you ask me though!
Hope you are all well, and enjoying these lovely waning days of summer!
