No-Weigh Friday

I'm still in shock over the US v. Slovenia travesty. What a comeback, what a heartbreak! I'm recording the next game at 2pm, which is England v. Algeria. Rob and I will watch when he comes home from work. I made homemade British style baked beans earlier this week and they came out fantastic. I've got English toasting bread in the oven now. I will serve up "Beans on Toast" with gammon steak (we Yanks call it ham) for dinner. So even if his team loses, I think my hubby will be happy.

I walked the mountain with Lisa this morning and visited the farm for milk and eggs. I also picked up some of their beautifully pungent garlic, six huge heads of it. I can't wait to try it. I feel like I've been on the run most of the week and could use a little quiet time. Other than a little gardening tomorrow, (must soap and destroy mealy bugs attacking the taters) Rob and I are looking forward to a relaxing weekend. We're going to try and get up to the pool at some point (it's been hotter than a gorgeous girl doing a fire dance in a sweat lodge) and I'm just getting into Eat, Pray, Love so that should be a nice way to spend a few hours this weekend.

I hope to do some more writing. I have a back log of food porn and recipes and can't wait to tell you about my first taste of goat's milk yogurt. The floor is open to you, as you have any requests? Questions? Comments? Ideas? I'd love to hear from you.


  1. Oh my, you just started Eat, Pray, Love? My guess would be that your entire weekend will be spent reading! Enjoy!

    Please tell more about your goat yogurt. I can't find liquid goat milk down here, just powdered.

  2. I haven't started "Eat, Pray, Love," but it's on my summer reading list. I find your blog very inspiring--I've lost 90 pounds but have another 20 to go to make my goal. Can't eat yogurt--lactose intolerance and milk allergy--but my DH loves the Greek yogurt you mention.
