I often think that this is the "real" time of the year. The winter is, for me, just when I am waiting for the the summer and the garden bounty, nice temperatures, sunshine, bird song... in the words of a song from the musical, "Porgy and Bess," --- "Summertime...and the livin' is easy..." That's how I feel. Even though I work really hard all spring and summer and into the fall, it makes me happy.
Here is a picture of what I had for breakfast this morning. I went out to the garden and found a very small zucchini squash, melted 1 Tablespoon of butter in a small skillet and grated the zucchini into it. I sauteed that for a little while. Then, I took 2 of the tiny itty bitty eggs from our baby chickens that have just begun to lay, and scrambled them in a small bowl with a bit of water, some salt and pepper. I poured that over the zucchini and cooked it together. Then I put a 1 ounce slice of marble cheese on top, turned off the heat and let it sit until the cheese was nicely melted. I ate all of that with a cut up nectarine. Oh, it was so good. Come over and I'll fix some for you too!
