Two of our girls taking a minute to enjoy the afternoon together. Connie, on the left, is a Cuckoo Maran. She's "retired" now but when she laid her eggs were a lovely dark brown. Among chicken and egg enthusiasts contests for the darkest and most beautiful Maran egg (they can be a dark chocolate brown) are a highlight of fairs and bird shows. On the right is one of our Buff Orpingtons, a heavy breed known for their calm and friendly personalities. They are so alike it's hard to name each one. James calls them "the Honeydrops."
I'm just a self-taught home cook who likes to try new things. One day when things were a little slow and dinner looked better than usual I decided to post the results on Facebook. Then I did it again and again -- and well, here I am, another addition to the blogosphere.
James, aside from being the "luckiest man alive" ;-), is my very tolerant boyfriend of nearly 10 years. I hope you enjoy sharing his dinner.
