Big Momma

I just got my hands on some sourdough starter or "mother" from a generous foodie acquaintance. I love to bake bread and am good with yeast, but have absolutely no experience with sourdough wrangling. I love the flavor of sourdough, and was inspired by hearing Michael Pollan interviewed on NPR yesterday...he waxed enthusiastic about the superior health benefits of fermented foods. I look forward to the adventure!

Fragrant Easter!

That darn Easter Bunny never knows when to call it quits!

Sixteen year old H is learning to drive!

Brunch at Camphill Special School, Beaver Farm. Henry was so glad to see us. and vice-versa.

Henry posing with cows. Unfortunately someone has taught him to make this "CHEESE" face every time he notices a photo is being taken! ;-D

It's definitely a real farmhouse; there's real mud in the mudroom!

The drive home passed in a blur! Two weeks of Henry vacation, coming at us!

An Easter nap!
What came first? The chocolate chicken or the chocolate egg?
