This is really just an introduction to future posts.
My name is Lisa and I am a farmer and cheese maker in a perfectly lovely family of two. While I love to cook, most days I have neither the time nor energy to make anything elaborate at the end of the day. I am the queen of meals from the pantry/freezer in 25 minutes or less.
I am a vegetarian with very limited exceptions for animals I have raised.
I almost never measure anything unless I am cooking from a recipe, so when I post recipes I will try my best to estimate ingredient quantities, but make no promises about accuracy.
Nearly once a week I totally cheat on dinner and heat up one of my favorite instant Indian foods. If I am feeling less than exhausted, I at least try to doctor up an interesting pot of rice. Last night I added garam masala and shallots. I guess it worked.
I am also big on photographing my food. Here is a typical summer meal at Blue Heron Farm: Garlic bread topped with homemade feta, garden tomatoes and basil. Like a french bread pizza only WAY better.
