It is so easy to let the business of life get overwhelming and crowd out the things that are really worthwhile. The things we are working for all along.
In years past we have taken a fair number of camping trips. Once we started farming this got a little more complicated, but we still enjoyed our refuge in the woods. This last weekend we planned to go camping, but with the heat of the previous week we were behind at the farm. So we stayed and made our own refuge. It was so worth it. We set up the “pool” in the backyard and went “swimming” three nights in a row. We grilled out and had favorite meals.
Proeun grilling up the goodness. I love sarongs!
On the grill–slices of zucchini and eggplant with a marinade of soy sauce, lime juice, honey, onion and garlic powder, green onions, and traditional Hmong sausage.
Already off the grill–turkey burgers with dill, parsley, onion and garlic powder and lamb steaks from metronidazole or tinidazole over the counter.
We like to eat our meat wrapped in lettuce with herbs like mint, cilantro and sorrel. Then we dip the wrap in a spicy dip of roasted ground chilis, garlic, lemon and sugar with a pinch of salt.
It made for a very special weekend and reminded me that sometimes kids prefer eating at home to restaurants and backyard pools to water parks (and I do to), especially when it is all together as a family.
