It's small wins, like this drying lavender above the espresso malachite, that keep me going. The ordinary is far more extraordinary than we give it credit for. Today, my bones ache with fatigue. Yet the laundry, dishes, children, and animals remain. And so, we must go on...
I'm ready for the everyday ordinary of wine, chicken piccata, episodes of Doc Martin, and apple cake.

The one watermelon the escaped chickens didn't get to... well played, summer.

I'm shooting photos for something I can't share with you. And preparing the kitchen for something I can't share with you either. Boo. Secrets are no fun! Unless you're me. Then they're a LOT of fun. Y'all - wait for them to drop... it will be worth the wait!... .

Coming your way today on the blog.... caramelized peaches with mint and almonds. Heeeeeeeaven. In other news, the title of this post autocorrected to 'caramelized leaches' and I almost left it. Because that's funny. 😜

Everything shared here is my farm. My space. My 'real life'. The dishes of food you see are prepared right here before my family of six eats them. These copper pans cook everything and my @kitchenaidusa mixer that was handed down to me is still kicking after almost twenty years. This may not be everyone's reality, but it's ours. And I love getting to share it with you!

I may never have smooth, manicured, feminine hands... but they can make bread, tend a garden, and milk a cow. Ma Ingalls would be proud.

Sizzling steak with vinegar and tomatoes. Have you tried it yet? The recipe can be found in my self-published edition of Family Table and will also be found in the new published edition coming out in Spring 2018! Loads of good stuff coming from the kitchen these days. I may or may not need a larger pair of pants.

A gentle reminder to take life a bit less seriously today. Because if you're like me, your attitude needs someone to kick it in the face and remind it of this every ten seconds. Snap out of it Shaye! This is all so very amazing. Needy kids included.

Six parts fat (in various egg, cream, and cheese forms) to seven parts delicious (in various veg forms). Watch for the recipe today on the blog! 🍷😍🍴In other news, check out Instagram stories for our courtyard progress. Because projects are my love language...

Last night my baby pooped her bed. Again. Tummy troubles? There's an oil for that. Sleep deprived mama from middle of the night sheet changing? There's an oil for that too. What are you dealing with today? It could be something as small as a cut - or something as big as thyroid imbalance. Don't worry and Google your symptoms until you want to cry. This is WHAT I DO. I can help. Schedule a call/FaceTime chat with me. We will talk about YOUR health concerns. I'll answer your questions about oils and talk about ones that can help you with those specific concerns. You don't have to buy anything - but I can help you if you want to. It'll only take 30 minutes of your life and it could make it that much better. What have you got to lose? More sanity? 😜PM or email me. shaye@theelliotthomestead.com

I'm posting this late. Which means most of you will see in the morning. Which is not exactly what you probably want to see in the morning. You probably want to see cinnamon buns. Or brioche bread. But instead, I'm bringing you a killer lamb recipe (meaning the recipe is really good... not that one of my lambs is now killing people). Newest post is up on the blog. I promise the next photo will be of something more morning appropriate... .

Americans could stand to use less processed salt to flavor their food and more herbs, spices, fat, and acid! It's amazing what garlic, parsley, oils, vinegar, and lemon juice can do to ANY dish. They're bringing the flavor, bay-bee. .
