Best lunch EVER…

An Israeli dish of eggs and spicy tomato sauce…

There are many variations, all delicious of course! Mine contained Spinach, tomatoes and i had a few mushrooms that needed to be used so I threw those in as well.

Simmer/poached two eggs and then topped with manouri cheese and green onions and of course, red pepper flakes!

It was soooo good! Yokes done to perfection!

Dinner last night wasn’t too bad either…Wild caught Ahi lightly seared with sesame seeds on salad with a nice ginger soy dressing! It was way better than it looks!

Grocery shopping…for the Urban Chicks

Scratch and Peck is getting low and time to replenish the chicken feed. We are sticking with organic, but the kind we have now is a scratch version and the girls seem to be waisting a lot. So we are going to slowly convert them to a pellet version and see if that keeps the waste down a bit..and really, I just love a reason to go to this place!

Lots of fruits…one day I will break down and buy the blueberry plant/bush so I can say I have picked blueberries!

Lots of fun gardening items…

I think I will make a wind-chime out of my cookie cutters. Look how cool those look rusted!

No farm/nursery is complete without a wagon!

And cow poop :0) I am going to try and sell my chicken poop…any takers! I hear it is great fertilizer!

Strawberries! So wanted to pick that one!

This reminded me of a cross and these little pottery figurines my mom once got for the girls in Sedona or New Mexico (can’t remember)…

And last but not least, the cat SweetPea fell in love with , yes the one allergic to cats!

Oh yeas, we did get the organic corn/soy free chicken feed…the girls are kind of boycotting it like they did when we switched them from crumble to scratch and peck…so I am hoping they will take to it soon…

A quick trip to the snow…

Decided to take advantage of the recent snow in Julian…

Can’t go to the snow without a snowball fight…

And a snowman of course…

And of course a little Blogilates…

Goodbye Albert…

And to finish it all off, a nice warm cup of hot chocolate!

Wow! 15

It is hard to believe she is 15…

Started with breakfast at Farmer’s Bottega.

Oatmeal with bananas…ok and a little maple syrup!

French toast..

and Oatmeal pancakes for the birthday girl…

A little birthday present from Nordstrom’s…

Birthday girl chose delicious browned butter and sage spaghetti for dinner but we forgot to snap a pic.

And cookie dough brownies for dessert…

Happy Birthday my love!!

Can you see the difference…

Ok, after a week of crazy egg happening; shell-less eggs and no eggs, we got back to having normal chickens…so we thought. One normal egg yesterday, but then today we got this…can you see the difference? Crazy!

Still not sure who is laying the darn egg?!
