Abigail🍓Thorpe  I'm kind of a little piglet

Guava//sweet potato variety experiments

Toasted cumin sweet potato bisque with homemade yogurt and coconut cream bc you can never have too many fats, griddled red pepper, fried plantains, and the kitten that made it for me 👑After hobbling along with a food processor for years, I finally found an old vitamix for $50 on Craigslist and I can't wait to liquefy everythinggggg

Remembering evening walks around Connemara in May, literally gasping and/or crying at the devastating landscapes (also gasping bc walking on the "shoulder& #34; of Irish roads is basically asking to be run over by a car). Isn't it lovely how pictures of travels bring back the most vivid, aching memories? This picture reminds me of the loose rocks on the side of the road and the sound of them beneath my feet as I walked, it reminds me of how the sun felt on my face and how I just kept closing my eyes and smiling into the light, it reminds me of the hedges and gates covered in so much green life and how I thought to myself that it would be a sin to open the gates and disturb the vines growing around them-I hope they're still shut-, it reminds me of who I thought of in the moment and how badly I wished they were with me, and it reminds me of a moment where my only thoughts were of gratitude and light. #iloveyou

"our problem-may I include you?- is that we don't know how to start, how to just close our eyes and let something dance between our hearts and lips, we don't know how to skip across the room only for the joy of the leap. we walk, we run, but what happens to the skip and its partner, the gallop, the useless and imaginary way we could move through space, the horses we rode before we knew how to saddle up, before we had opinions about everything and just loved the wind in our faces and the horizon in our eyes" - Stuart Kestenbaum

Tinkering with the grind size on a Meadows stone mill. Pictured is a creamy, soft spring wheat that has a fairly low protein content, so it's perfect for quick breads or anything that doesn't need gluten development. Grinding whole wheat berries for baking lends a lot of room for creativity- the bran can be sifted out or included, depending on how hearty you want your finished product to be. Freshly ground grains are so much more nutritious than typical flours available in stores, but the real perk is the flavor and scent! This particular soft wheat berry has a light, unobtrusively sweet scent ☁️🌾

Living my best life via breakfast for dinner. Coconut pancakes made with homemade coconut milk and coconut flour, almond meal, spelt, vanilla bean, and yogurt. Topped with toasted hazelnuts, black raspberries and strawberries from last summer simmered with sourwood honey, and darrrrk choc. I never measure any ingredients when making pancakes, so no two batches are ever the same which in this case is a bit tragic 🌴🌴

never let me go

Honestly, I'll take roses or buckwheat 🥞🥖🥐🌾🌹

We don't have a golden egg laying goose, but we do have a chicken that lays bowling balls so that's 🆒 🎳 (egg on left is an x-large for reference) #getitgirl #infinityyolks

Ordering seeds for spring planting is the best reminder to enjoy the last dredges of winter, and the lull that it allows🌨February and March weather in NY can be disheartening, with the frequent muddy cycles of thawing and freezing (especially when working with cows, horses, etc.), but it's really only a matter of perspective! Self-care like cooking slow leisurely meals, reading alllll of the books, and taking the time to learn new skills is easier to grasp during winter, and I'm so grateful for the slower pace. What are your favorite self-care rituals in the winter months? #chammomile #lemonverbena

"to live in this world, you must be able to do three things, to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go" #maryoliver #oracle
