Some weeks ago we met a fisherman at the river. Nori was fascinated by the conversation of fishing and especially the little brown trout dangling from the stick in the man’s hand. The fish has been much featured in his play lately so we decided he needed some fish.
I made these out of felt using a quick running stitch. They have a loop on the back so he can “fish” and carry his catch on a stick. Nori loves them and has made many a meals for us on his living room campfire.
We received a beautiful chicken with our farmshare last week. After dining on roasted chicken, I boiled the carcass and was left with a bowl full of meat and a half gallon of deep yellow bone broth. The broth is still sitting in the fridge as the weather has been too hot for soup, but I made delicious quesadillas with the meat.
It is a bit of an unusual combination, but it was so tasty. Mustard greens, scallions, chicken and cheddar. All heaped between two homemade tortillas. I’m proud to say that, with the exception of the cheese, every ingredient was local and organic. You could definitely taste the difference.
Ben’s mother sent us this rocking chair for Nori’s third birthday. It had belonged to Ben’s older sister. I quickly fell in love with it and turned a corner of our living room into a cozy reading nook. The alphabet cards made a lovely addition to the nook as did the Civil War chest gifted to me by Ben years ago. Nori loves it and returned to it often throughout the day to read or just sit.
