Monday Dose of Cute: Long Weekend Recovery Mode

Daisy and Bert in weekend recovery mode -

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:

  1. Dang, you guys ate well this past weekend! :)
    Congrats to Hunter Bert and how nice of him to share!

  2. Not too much rabbit for you and Hunky Farm Guy either? The champagne is a nice touch, too.

    Beagle Bert is quite the tenacious pup, isn't he?

  3. It always sounds delicious at your place and I daresay our dog, Jada, would agree given Bert's recent catch.

December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
