The little house is kind of falling apart but it's got lots of character, no denying that. This time last year someone came and annihilated ALL of those plants and bushes around the house. AH!  Terribly. I actually cried. Luckily we were gone for the spring and summer so they sort of grew back, a little bit. But all of February it was all barren and depressing, with no privacy. Manicured lawns are really overrated. And the guy who went scissors happy with my poor plants better stay far away this year!

Feed me.

Some serious blog neglection going on, yeah? It's not my fault! Here's some obligatory foodporn photos from Thanksgiving. I made veggie sushi last year and the year before that was a bottle of wine and vegan pizza that I ate solo. 

So this year I decided to put a bit more effort in and made some tasty treats (all vegan, of course of course). Pumpkin coconut muffins, baba ganoush with pita bread, grilled asparagus and corn, chive(d) mashed potatoes and tofu pot pie (which turned out way too good, actually). Dessert was homemade sweet potato ice cream with toasted coconut. Tasty treats, indeed!

I'm currently in the process of making a disturbing amount of cookies. Veganizing recipes from my Gramma :) Yum stuff!

Wannabe Rain Clouds

 I looked outside the window and saw these bad boys coming in. You'd think they were rain clouds, right? Wrong! It didn't rain until a few weeks later, very inappropriate timing since I had a booth/tent setup at the Texas Reds Festival. Whatcha gonna do, eh?

Heavy in your arms

Oh man. Oh man. It's been a while since I've been around these parts, huh? I guess that's what happens when internet access isn't in the palm of your hand. Hoping that'll change soon but it's not looking so hot. I just got done with the field season (great season, totally bittersweet ending) and am all edgy from adjusting back into society and civilization and all that stuff...always a struggle, really.

Petrified Wood!

Petrified wood from the backyard creek. This stuff is pretty plentiful but it never fails to excite me. I have a pretty hefty hoard of it now, this is just my latest find. (with my pet resurrection fern!) My geologist friend told me the petrified wood around here is usually 10-30 million years old. So cool.

Magic Potions

Ohh yeah. I busted out the juicer this week, after a much too long hiatus. I stocked up on some tasty fruits and veggies and have been making carrot-apple-beet-kale juice every day. YUM! Magic stuff. I've been saving the pulp and giving the horses that as a treat/snack. They freaking love it (some more than others) and it makes it a litte easier to round 'em up if I dont have a halter on me, ha!
