when we worried imminent frost would kill the them we harvested a whole lotta hot peppers from our garden at organic valley. i have no idea what all the varieties are nor their hotness but that’s not going to stop me from whipping up a batch of what i like to call Odin’s Kick in the Asgard hot sauce.
what could possibly go wrong?
three months ago I held this very goat when it was just a day old.
I’ve almost taken it home twice!
odin picked the cello for his school music program. With solid foundation in sight reading and music theory from ongoing piano lessons I’m sure he’ll pick it up quick! i can’t wait to hear the sound of the strings through the house. right now they’re practicing picking out notes. bow work starts soon.
odin’s trying on new hockey gear because his old gear is way, way, waaaaay too small. our little boy now fits into adult smalls?!
he’s not exactly super enthused at me taking his picture
he’s tearing through diary of a wimpy kid at the expense of talking with his poppi
bacon and jalapenos make for a simple and tasty way to spruce up a hotdog ( we love organic prairie’s 100% grass-fed organic hotdogs ).
simply cut a line down the length of the hotdog deep enough to fit several slices of jalapeno. precook some bacon so it’s tender enough to wrap around the hotdog. then secure the bacon with some toothpicks. cook on medium heat on a grill until the hotdog is hot and the bacon is crisp.
top with sweet pickle relish and mustard.
served with homemade fries spritzed with apple cider vinegar for a Delicious Flavor Bonanza ®
we’re out and about chasing the wind with the kite aerial photography rig and odin grabs the dslr and follows me around shooting away. it didn’t take long before he starts shooting selfies.
“poppi, i never told anyone but i’d really like a camera like this. i think i’d like to take more pictures.”
he takes a ton of photos with his ipod but he thinks the pictures on the DSLR look much better and likes how he can have more control. i think our future will be filled with photowalking adventures!
and in case you’re wondering day 253 was the first time he took a picture with the DSLR and day 1000 he shot his first selfie ( before they were called selfies ).
it’s impossible to convey the beauty of the view from the top of the ridge just a mile from my desk at organic valley. maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.
the view of the classic driftless region geography makes for quite an energizing “out and back” lunch run even on a dull day, all the more so when it’s sunny, green and lush.
do yourself a favor and view large on a big screen.
my motivation isn’t synthetic. and now, neither is my recovery shake
26 grams of protein never tasted so good. also, lactose free.
yes i’m an organic valley brand manager so i’m a bit of a partisan, but i really do love this stuff and so does odin – so much so that we have a bit of trouble keeping it stocked in the house!
if you’ve ever made a product then you know how hard it is to go from the idea to an actual thing without making compromises along the way. if it were easy to make a great tasting, organic, high protein recovery shake with a short ingredient list and no words you can’t pronounce, then somebody would have done it already. i couldn’t be prouder of the super team who made this A Real Thing.
we’re still getting it stores, so if you’re interested tell your local, favorite store you’d love to have it on the shelf. if you have a whole foods or ncga coop nearby there’s a good chance you’ll find it there. also available via amazon fresh and fresh direct. of course, you can always check our product locator for more locations.
if you try it, i’d love to hear what you think.
