I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving! I’m still righting all the wrongs…you?  My 2 aunties and uncle from Florida came, one makes pottery and my uncle farms. They brought tomatoes, cukes, peanuts, persimmons, cactus fruit, papayas, green beans  – can you believe that just 8 hours away they are growing all that stuff right now.  It was her birthday and she wanted barbacoa  so I smoked a brisket then put that baby in the crock pot with some lime juice, cumin and stuff and a bottle of BEER. Didn’t even give it a thought. Did I mention she CAN’T HAVE GLUTEN?? DRATS.

THEN on Thanksgiving Day after 3 glasses of champs I sliced off almost my whole entire fingernail chopping sage. Bloodbath!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers’ Market tomorrow with a little baby curly kale and spinach, Red Russian kale, chard, pretty radishes, Butterball and Carola potatoes, sweet potatoes and wheat.

I’ll have our grass fed, grass finished Angus beef in these cuts: Ribeyes, NY strips, filets, sirloins,  flanks, skirt, flat iron, ground beef, stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, oso bucco  short ribs, brisket, soup bones, liver,  eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts and rump roast. Bologna, pastrami, corned beef & hot dogs made without added nitrates or nitrites.


Anyway my auntie makes all my dishes and stuff, and I love them and so I thought it would be really fun to have her make some teacups to put on my market table for Christmas presents (to ourselves?) to sell with my dried hibiscus and turmeric tea. RIGHT?!  So pretty. I’m bringing them tomorrow, they are $35 – $45 for the teacups with saucers. That’s just her price I didn’t add anything to it.  I only kept one so far…I seem to be amassing a collection of teacups and mugs, love them.

Seeeeee! Yes. It is big enough to wash your chihuahua in. That’s how we like it 🙂


I finally broke out the good camera and have been lugging it on my walks in the mornings. I’m on the lookout for the raccoon family of 5.


Fluffelupagus is getting lots of face time this week 🙂


Where’s Waldo? Your frosty breath is giving you away silly!


There she goes!  In a cloud of dust. Thank goodness we finally got some rain.

See  you guys tomorrow!
