Children Show No Mercy For Jet Lag

IMG_3893

Yeah!  Our friend Kevin is here!!

Arrived last night.  Managed to eat and laugh.  Then went off to read the instructions to construct “Hubble” our new telescope ( thanks, Kevin!! ).  I should say “read” instructions.  Sometimes Brent “reads” in bed.  Whereby “reading” means: put your book on the bedside table and shut the light off.

The kids were exhausted from end-of-school activities.  I think we all had a bit of jet lag.  But, the children managed to get up earlier than Kevin, wandered over to the villa and woke him up.  He said he heard their footsteps as they entered.  We call it “child thunder.”

Burgers for lunch today.  We do burgers with buns when we have a beef sale.  A special treat.  Everyone has their own style.  I enjoy watching and photographing what burger people make.  It’s very personal.  Kevin made the burger above.  TWO tomatoes, good one.  Fried egg is lovely. He chose Comte as a melty topper.

I think everyone who visits will be required to build a burger.  I’ll photo and post the results.

Here is Hubble in the making.  The moon is full tonight.

Last night the moon was full and red.  There was a lot of harvest and a lot of heat that messed with the atmosphere.

Can’t wait to see what tonight’s moon and star show is about.

Tijuana Sombrero

What’s a Tijuana Sombrero?  OoOOoh, don’t ask, let me show you.

Stick a fried egg on a Croque Monsieur and you get a Croque Madame.  It is said that the fried egg looks like a woman’s hat.  This is my little Mexican take on a Croque Madame.

Stick a fried egg that you formed into a Sombrero on a burger with cheese, fresh salsa, some creme fraiche and a bit of lettuce and you get an Amiga Mexicana.  Fun for a girl or a boy.  Though, I think Tijuana Sombrero will win on the naming of this dish.

 

Minty did Carrot Henge.

Z ate ham rolls and yelled at Minty for taking her photo.  “NO PHOTO!  grrrrr! ”

Beef Day!

We still have a few customers to arrive to pick up their mince and veal. It’s been an animated day juggling our regularly scheduled program along with greeting customers with their yummy goods.  This is the fun part.  We did a new thing with the veal. We made veal burgers. Oh and they were lovely. I think we might do that again.

beef left veal right

If you try them side-by-side, one is “beefy yum” and the other “interesting and a bit beefy or what?” I really liked it. There could be some magic there with veal burgers.  The flavors are unfamiliar so really the burger could go many ways.  I’m excited to play with it.
