A documentation of my preservation and preparation of local foods as I work through the seasons. This will serve as a reference tool for me in the future and as a sharing guide for family and friends...and anyone else interested. Hopefully, I can offer some useful methods, tips and recipes to share with everyone--be they novice or pro--and encourage them to join me in the exciting world of preserving and cooking with local foods.

Valentine's Day Table
To avoid crowded restaurants on Valentines Day, I take a raincheck on eating out and prepare a special meal at home. Valentine's Dinner is always served on the china I selected for my hope chest at age 15. It is the Norwegian "Farmer's Rose" pattern. They were purchased at a Norwegian gift shop, Dannevigs, owned by my Aunt Marge Danewick. Many place settings and serving dishes for this pattern were received as wedding gifts.
