not winter

I’ve just gotten used to not being cold, and recipe sites are already touting Fall foods like acorn squash.  Cut it out.  We’ve all learned to live with the sales of holiday-themed items a full two to three months BEFORE the holiday.  But, I refuse to start buying winter foods during the bounty of Summer.  Why would I give up a beautiful zucchini blossom for cinnamon-laden, pumpkin-flavored everything?  I simply will not give in on food.  If you want to dream of Fall, this next Call is a BEST sort of reason to think of Fall in advance.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries from 4heads.org for the 2015 Governor’s Island Art Fair. $35 to apply, but your room is free–FOR A MONTH!  Did I mention that commission is only 30%?  I love New York in the Fall…

MEAT

I am not currently a vegetarian, but I think I could be without that much difficulty.  It is a personal choice that I have examined over the years.  As Jon & I head toward a more agrarian lifestyle, I recognize that I am unwilling to take the life of an animal living on my farm (chickens, rabbits & goats).  Instead, I leave that job to my husband who has less of a debate with it than I do.  Does that mean I should not be willing to eat them–since I couldn’t kill them?  This is my current philosophical internal dialogue.  These animals offer my family the best way to get protein, but the chickens & goats can produce protein in the form of eggs & milk without it resulting in their demise.  Should we choose NOT to kill them?  I know both sides of the argument.  Do I choose not to eat it if I cannot kill it?  The war of human versus nature rages in my mind as it does in this next Call from F-Stop.  Take a look & offer your best…

Most people associate Georgia with peaches, or maybe peanuts (thanks to Jimmy Carter), but I always think of barbeque ribs or creamy lobster bisque.  Random, I know.  I grew up in a suburb of Atlanta as a young girl, and barbeque ribs were a standard at least one night a week during the summer.  Once a teenager, I made treks to Savannah with my mother to have table-side Caesar salad and lobster bisque from our favorite restaurant.  I suppose every person’s food story is a unique work of non-fiction.  This next Call is your non-fiction opportunity to tell your own solo story.  Take a look…

LEEKS

It is ramp season again!  I love many, many things about living in the Great Smoky Mountains, but ramps are a Spring favorite for my family.  I appreciate the ability to forage for ramps, but if you are a less adventurous resident, our local farmers’ markets have a growing availability of ramps in gorgeous colors and varieties.  They are spectacular as the highlight of a tomato onion tart for brunch or just marinated in your best homemade vinaigrette.  This next Call is looking for your favorite takes on all thing plant life.  Investigate…

I seek out Greek food.  I don’t have access to Greek food at home, except my husband’s exceptional version of Moussaka, so I’m always on the hunt.  I have noticed a rather odd phenomenon–Greek food crossed with diner culture.  I keep seeing menu after menu with both platters of fries AND bowls of Avgolemono.  Sometimes it is great to expect to get one thing but find yourself with options when you take a closer look.  I suppose this next Call is exactly like that.  Take a look…

My son is learning to cook.  More accurately, my husband & I are forcing our son to cook dinner once per week.  He has shown no really interest in producing meals–only eating them.  So, we are not giving him an option.  My concern is that if he doesn’t learn how, he’ll be forced to eat commercially-processed crap his entire life.  He doesn’t like cooking.  Doing anything solo the first time is scary, but my kiddo has turned it into a pressure-cooked affair.  Let’s hope it gets easier.  This next Call is YOUR chance to do art solo.  Don’t stress, just submit a proposal…
