The last few weeks in photographs:
Numerous days of thunderstorms lacking rain, meaning lots of fires.
Jalapeno mac and cheese plus salad.
Summertime means blended peppermint matcha lattes.
Fresh blueberry buttermilk pancakes with huckleberry syrup.
A few weeks ago, this cat showed up at our house. We realized she was living under the house and were pretty sure she was pregnant…
After about a week, we got her into the house, named her Millie, decided she is most definitely pregnant… and it’s a current adventure.
Silas asked for “real” fried chicken one night, so we made fried chicken strips.
My sun sparkler sedum bloomed :)
Veggie bacon, egg, cheese and avocado on sourdough.
Veggie tacos — yaaaas!
Silas had his first ever week-long camping experience. He went to a basketball camp about 4 1/2 hours from home.
Every day living around here includes things like regularly cutting pigeon toenails.
Traditional eggplant parmesan with homegrown eggplants and homemade marinara.
She seems to be enjoying indoor living. (And after a week of hellish litter box training, she’s much more enjoyable to have indoors!)
Teriyaki vegetarian (Quorn) chicken one night.
I love the color of these tomatoes — they make me happy every time I pick some!
A little bit of Hawai’i in my backyard.
“Wicked Tuna” at Sammich, with house-poached Oregon albacore, jalapeños, housemade bacon, sprouts and avocado. SO GOOD.
A late night dinner. Marinated + grilled eggplant topped with basil, fresh tomatoes, feta, and olives.
Early morning in Southern Oregon.
Brunch! Sourdough french toast with fresh bananas.
Vegetarian friend chicken sammiches.
Shakshuka with garden tomatoes for brunch one day.
My garden makes me happy.
Eggplant sammiches garlic basil vegenaise, fresh spinach, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, caramelized onions, and balsamic reduction.
Homemade Indian food.
Out in the middle of nowhere.
Well, I saw a post on a local community/discussion board Friday afternoon. Then Silas’s sister tagged me in said post, inquiring whether or not I wanted another pigeon. The post described an injured pigeon that was downtown on a staircase, bloody and unable to fly. It also mentioned that the local wildlife rehabilitation center didn’t accept pigeons (though they’d readily come euthanize if necessary…) and no vets would accept it. I recognized the stairs immediately in the photo attached to the post, and knew it was just around the corner from our house. So here we are, a second pigeon to add to the animal circus we are steadily growing… My hope is it’ll heal fully and I’ll be able to release it one day.
First homemade tomato pie of the year. Hooray!
Hope you’ve had a wonderful few weeks!
