Peasant Feast

Jess, Cally, & Blogger at the farm

Jesse and Cally came over from the Pullman Farm in Shaftsbury, Vermont, which they farm these days. They brought our grandson Angus, 8 months old, and three from their first batch of farm-raised, 100% organically fed and free-raised chickens (două găini şi un cocoş), all plucked, cleaned, and neatly frozen in shrink-wrap bags. They also brought four jars of homegrown and Cally-canned pickled cucumbers (castraveţi muraţi). We had intended to go out to a birthday dinner, but instead, I defrosted a good-sized bird, and roasted it for dinner with stuffing made of bread, celery, onion and spices, served with stir-fried veggies, pasta and cranberry sauce. Alex McDougall and his friend Erin also came for dinner, bringing a birthday cake. How wonderful! (O zi minunat!)
