It was another eventful and productive week. It snowed on Monday. Valentines Day was Tuesday, on Wednesday Rose and I snuck into Portland for a quick date night. On Thursday Perlita gave us our first calf of the year. We have named her Hope. Friday was a flurry of market prep. Punctuating the week throughout were various continuations of plumbing and electrical projects in the Farm kitchen and the “ChopShop”, our commercial kitchen. This has left me with no time to write so I leave you with a repeat of last week’s recipe content below. I will be operating the Magic Meat Truck this weekend while Rose tends to the farm critters and farm children. I have packed another batch of my mustard, baked a village loaf and harvested fat ducks and chickens. Rose has tied some gorgeous barded beef roasts, baked delectable pates, smoked meats, and stuffed a bountiful array of sausages.
Find me Saturday morning at University District, Saturday evening on Vashon Island, Sunday at Ballard, and Monday evening in Portland! Details of time and address are at the bottom of this email.
