Bubble and squeak

Hmmm, what do we have for dinner...

cabbage and onions from our garden

bacon from our pigs

last week's mashed potato from the fridge but originally the garden

our own eggs

In a cast-iron skillet, using deep green olive oil, fry onions covered until translucent, add cabbage and cover and steam for 10 minutes, add mashed potato and cook until crisp in places. Au gratin, or as my college buddy Rab always said, meaning "with burned scrapings." That's for the first day. Save some. It's better the next day.

The second day, cut the bacon up to one-inch pieces and fry up until crisp. Add yesterday's bubble and squeak until hot, then serve. With eggs over easy if you can.

But, if you can at all help it, don't get chased by your wife around the kitchen.

(What for? For leaving the kitchen stool in her way, that's what for. How unjust. The stool, meanwhile, was sent to the porch.)

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
