It’s baaaack! After a nine-month hiatus, Friday Favs is back!
Now that Book 2 is turned in and we are settling in to life at Preservation Acres, it is time to get back to blogging, including some regular features such as Friday Favorites. So without any further fanfare, here are some of my favorite things this week:
Jaybar Crow – A Novel
“As I have read the Gospels over the years, the belief has grown in me that Christ did not come to found an organized religion but came instead to found an unorganized one. He seems to have come to carry religion out of the temples into the fields and sheep pastures, onto the roadsides and the banks of the rivers, into the houses of sinners and publicans, into the town and the wilderness, toward the membership of all that is here. Well, you can read and see what you think.”
― Wendell Berry,
Shannan’s post Good Mom
Our little farmstead has its own Facebook Page! Go like Preservation Acres and keep up with all our progress!
One of the things I have missed since we moved to the farm is entertaining. We have been so consumed with remodels and book writing and figuring out how to manage our land, that there hasn’t been a lot of energy for hosting gatherings. But that is all about to change, as I have a plan up my gingham sleeves… For now though, I am gathering inspiration and I love this farm-to-table meal and table from Darling mag.
My friends Natalie and Luke opened their general store at long last! I want every single thing in stock, especially this scale! Go check out Freckled Hen Farmhouse Shop
I so badly want to try a Torta like this one from Bread in 5. I think I saw one of these for the first time on The Great British Baking Show (which I ADORE btw,) and I immediately became obsessed. Now I just need to be brave and try it – surely I can do it, right?
And don’t forget to pick up a copy of A Homemade Year!
It is full of great Spring and Summer recipes, entertaining ideas, and inspiration. Makes for a great Mother’s Day or Baby Shower Gift!
Have a lovely weekend friends!
