So many activities!

A screenshot from my Instagram page from way back. Stop growing up, children!

You know those days where so many things get in the way of your fun that it’s almost comical? So here we were on Sunday (the day of the week that both my husband and I have off from work…thus we must cram as many activities into daylight hours as possible) we head out for a surf check and I decide it’s a little big for my liking so we decide to kayak the creek. We go home, unload our longboards, load our boats and head up north. When we get there, the creek is too windy and we drive home. On the way home we decide to go mountain biking. When we get home we unload the kayaks and load the bikes. We arrive at our favorite biking spot and within 3 minutes, the chain on my husband’s bike snaps. I think the universe is telling us that we need to just chill today. So universe, you got it, were gonna just chill. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, see you at the market!  

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria 

1. Turkish Red lentil (red lentils, caramelized onion, lemon and mint) 

2. Creamy cauliflower 

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!  Also, If like to give a big Thank You to Jenny of Cambria for making the suggestion of adding Farro to the creamy carrot!  Many of you told me you enjoyed it that way! I’ll be sure to make plenty of batches without Farro too for those of you gluten free folks out there!  

Stream orchids

I could look at flowers all day. Somehow (even through I’ve recommended it to friends)  I have not been out to see the carrizo plane superbloom this year but today made up for it with one single blossom.

 The wild stream orchid. 

I. Can’t.  Even. 

It literally is so amazing that it gets it’s own paragraph. We were a little early this year and only one orchid was open but by next week their will be an entire north facing hillside in full orchid bloom on my parent’s ranch. You better believe I’ll be out there to see about THAT! 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Well, that was a rather winter-like storm smack in the middle of springtime! Thanks for coming out, Cambria! You guys rock!  Sounds like more rain is on the way but our vendors are loaded up with spring harvest (including purple octopus carrots from Pepper Creek Farm) so don’t miss out on account of a few raindrops!

Adventures at night

You guys, last night, around 2am a raccoon got in our house. Our house is in the shape of an octagon so you can go in a complete circle around the inside of it, which we did, chasing a raccoon, multiple times, followed by two barking dogs (who thought it was the best game ever) and a terrified cat. Reflecting back, the scene was hilarious, should anyone have seen it through our windows. After about ten minutes and a lot of muddy pawprints on our walls, we got him out and decided that maybe it’s time for screens on our windows. 
Moving on!

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week: 

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria:
