The Entertaining Farmgirls Supper Club

We Entertaining Farmgirls had such a good time at the last dinner party.  I love hosting farm to table dinners and though I don’t have a farm to host it on, I sure do have a beautiful place with views and a great kitchen to hold them in!  The next one is Sunday, June 12th and I have some spots…

The Entertaining Farmgirls Return

I love entertaining.  That is one nice thing about moving back to a more centralized location.  It is easy to entertain here.  The large kitchen leading out to the dining/living room are perfect to encourage conversation, laughter, great food and memories. Shyanne and I launched our dinner party club, Wildflower and Fawn, and it was…

The Forest Feast and the Underground Supper Club

I have found the most beautiful cookbook.  It is called “The Forest Feast” by Erin Gleeson.  You can taste the food and smell the forest and celebrate with friends as you flip the pages.  Cool cocktails and interesting takes on vegetables wooed me into the check out line with it.  I have spent hours lost…

A Feast for the Senses on an Urban Homestead

I put the kettle on. I am oddly consoled flipping the switch to turn on the fireplace. The sound of the dryer after nine years naught reverberates softly. I sip tea and watch the moon drift silently away above the rose hued mountain top in the early morning dawn. What shall I do now in my…

Music Returns to the Homestead

I received something for my birthday today that I have wanted for some time.. music. When we downsized to this little homestead I sold the piano, the violin, and the mandolin.  Andy took his electric guitar, his acoustic guitar, his banjo, and the harmonica.  It was terrible. Now, mind you, I probably would not have…

Bocce (a new way to play!)

Bocce is typically played on a court measuring roughly ninety by thirteen feet.  The one I learned on was much smaller than this but the court really doesn’t matter, it turns out. Images of Italian men with grappa playing after dinner fill my mind.  They are portrayed with color and prose in many of the…

The Entertaining Farmgirl-Christmas Time

I used to be known for my Christmas party.  I had one every year.  Hundreds of dollars spent on food.  Friends from all facets of our life were invited.  Each year I spent so much time in the kitchen, serving, cleaning up, trying to talk to everyone, that I actually didn’t get to spend any…

The Cozy Farmhouse

This time of year we are anxiously trying to finish all of our farm chores before winter sets in.  Yesterday we pulled up corn stalks that may as well have been aspen trees.  The tomato plants had grown roots equally as long and did not want to budge either.  We are both a little sore…

The Entertaining Farmgirl’s Summer Party

Ever the Entertaining Farmgirl I must host shin digs.  It is my inner Martha Stewart.  Our summer party is my favorite.  Our friends are like dear family to us and to have everyone together is a blessing and a cause for celebration.  We can stretch out when we have the party outdoors instead of crammed…

Farmgirl Cocktail

Everywhere I look, people are presently changing jobs, or moving (or trying to), ending relationships, or having babies, or other really big life changes.  It’s like the earth shifted some and our realities and plans with it!  What everyone seems to have in common though is that we are all working really hard and pinching pennies!  I am exhausted just…
