Did you eat well this past weekend? We sure did. There was apple streusel pie and vanilla ice cream for breakfast (three times), champagne and grilled cheese sandwiches on freshly baked bread for lunch, roast chicken, rice, and gravy with garlic and lemon thyme from the kitchen garden, bacon and fried egg sandwiches (the hens are laying again!) on homemade onion rye rolls, homegrown grass-fed cheeseburgers on onion rye rolls, freshly picked raw kale salad, open-faced toasted chicken and Swiss sandwiches, honey ginger pear bran muffins, hot buttered popcorn. . .
Bert finally caught a rabbit (I think it's the one he's been tracking for about a year and a half), and after eating his fill, while growling menacingly the entire time, he kindly shared his catch with Mr. Midnight, Kit Kat, and Bear (although Mr. Midnight usually gets his own rabbits in the garden).
Celebrating is always fun, but re-entry can be a little rough:
11/27/09: Thanksgiving, the Morning After
12/27/11: Holiday Recovery Mode
3/26/12: Weekend Recovery Mode, Version Two
