Under the Tuscan Sun
Mood:  lucky

We've been working on our "processing shed". When finished, this will be the kitchen where we will process the food from the farm. It's coming along nicely and hopefully we can finish it before August when I need to be thinking about preparing for classes. Meanwhile, we've been eating most of what we harvest. Today for lunch we had a one-pot meal of basmati rice, field peas (courtesy of our neighbor, Mr. Melton), a bit of curry powder, and a dash of chili pepper, a slice of bacon, and topped with fresh tomatoes (for me, not John) and sliced almonds. It was scrumptious. It reminded me of something the author of "Under the Tuscan Sun" (the book, NOT the movie) said about cooking with fresh ingredients--it's so easy to get it right when the ingredients have such great favor!

 Update on the broody chickens:   One of the chickens has accidentally knocked two eggs out of her nest and cracked the eggs. Both had embryos in them. The other chicken has cannibalized three of her eggs. I don't know whether they were viable. There is one week left until their "due date."
