Winter Seasonal Living Workshop + Farm Meal | January 26th 2019

This winter workshop + farm meal was the second in our seasonal living series, and it turned out to be everything I could have hoped for. For this one we decided we’d keep it a bit smaller and more intimate as a reflection of the season, as we were expecting typical Oregon winter rainy weather.

Autumnal Chia Seed Pudding with Spiced Granola

Tis’ the season to eat eat eat. I will say, I do love the seasonal spreads we get this time of year, but I usually always tend to walk away with a bloated belly and feeling of distaste.

A Roasted Red Pepper Caesar with Sautéed Veg and Sourdough Croutons

I am not now, or have ever been, a big Caesar Salad person. Probably because creamy dressings really aren't my thing.  So, when my sister suggested making a Roasted Red Pepper Caesar Salad, I was like.... nah....  But, then I thought about it -- and I thought about how many people love such salads and are going out of their way to purchase ready made dressings, filled with unnecessary saturated fat and chemicals.

White Beans on Toast w/ fresh Lemon, Mozzarella and Avocado

A modern take on an old tradition. I will still always crave a simple tomato based baked beans on a piece of buttered toast, but this lemon and dill white bean salad is by far a healthier choice, filled with more protein and when paired with fresh homemade hummus, avocado and mozzarella is quite a delight.
