A Short Update

So Far So GoodCurrent conditions: SUNNY and 39 DEGREES. And it is SO GOOD to see these ladies alive and humming. Winter claimed two of our three hives, and honestly, there is very little in life that is more sickening than opening up a dead hive, especially one with plenty of honey.  With any luck, we’ve made it through the sub-zero stage of the Iowa winter, and we can start feeding them some sugar water soon. Fly my pretties! FLY!!

On another note, it’s been a tough few weeks. OK, I shouldn’t say something like that. Because it hasn’t been that tough, really. Everyone is healthy and nothing bad has happened. It’s just been so COLD and we’ve been really busy and also my cooking experiments have just turned out badly. So I’m complaining, as per usual.
 

So Far So GoodTake a look at this, for example. It’s kale from our aquaponics system. I sautéed it just like all of those allegedly great recipes out there. And seriously, I am just done with kale, OK?
 

Kale SucksAnd I really tried to fix it up, too. But it tastes GROSS. It smells bad. It is slimy. It is hard to chew. I HATE IT.
 

kaleObviously, if you invite me to your house and cook kale, I will eat it. Because I really do appreciate it when people cook for me. But just so you know – I’m probably going to try to just swallow it whole. You may have to administer the Heimlich, or maybe even perform an emergency tracheotomy. Sorry about that…
 

Coming SoonOn the up side, I AM working on next week’s recipes. And early results are looking and tasting good!  Stay tuned…
 

beautifulAnd it’s supposed to be in the SIXTIES next week. There are no words…
