So I didn't go to the market. Despite that fact that I am going to try to get some friends together for a 100 mile picnic next weekend. We have plenty of meat from May's meat box in the freezer, rhubarb booze getting all boozy in the closet, and nice weather as a reason to celebrate. It's time to start making some community memories with this food.
The house hunt continues. We are still narrowing down where we would like to live. Food and entertaining are one of the things we are taking into account when looking at houses. I want a kitchen with counter space and room to have more than 3 people eat at one time. I want a backyard where the hubby can rule over the grill, where I can grow hundreds of tomatoes and raise some chickens. I have visions of small town living complete with a roadside summer business selling eggs and tomato sauce (and maybe some jams if I can perfect those) but I want all of this with accessibility to NYC because the hubby needs to work, and I eventually need to go back to work. My sister gave me a lead on a little town in the Hudson Valley that seems to fit all of our criteria. Now we have to motivate to look in earnest.
