You can be sure whatever meal Christine serves it will be healthy, organic and delicious! Wholesome food and knowing where it comes from is a big deal to Christine and Tony, as it should be for all of us. No junk food here! Everything they eat is made from scratch -- they even grind their own oatmeal. We had quiche and it was nothing short of fantastic! We also had homemade V-8 juice which tastes so much better than the grocery store version.
Christine and Tony live on a small farm where they grow all their own vegetables and fruit. They also raise chickens and Black Angus beef cattle. I learned quite a bit about chickens that I didn't know, like -- did you know they LOVE vegetables? Raw, cooked, whatever. They especially love cherry tomatoes. They'll fight over them! This former city girl finds out something new all the time!
Christine and Tony's home is eco-friendly; one side of it is immersed in the earth. The clever part is when you're inside, you can't even tell you're in an earth home! There are windows at the top even on the earth-side (north), so you don't feel enclosed at all. Their home uses very little energy. The main source of heat is a wood-burning stove and a geo-thermal floor.
This time of year Christine and Tony are super busy harvesting their garden, canning massive amounts of produce, and getting wood cut for the winter. I'm so glad they saved a day to spend with us!
