Tacos & Other FARM FUN

William has perfected the street taco and the sauce to top them! The recipe is included! Over the last few years I've curated and carefully selected for dazzling color and flavor hot peppers for our greenhouse, while William has fine tuned his sauces. We enjoy a simple meal of "Street Tacos" at least once a week here on the farm. William has agreed to share the recipe with you all. Mind you, it's one he's tested and tried through the years and it's "kinda in my head" as he says, so we're guessing a bit on quantities. Our world...perfectly imperfect and delicious.

It has been quite a year for raspberries! In the past when I was teaching, I barely had time to pick them, but this year I've been able to keep up with them for the most part. We have a freezer full, but the last picking went straight into the jam pot as they had an extra couple days to ripen with all the rain we've (finally) had. There's some fresh and delicious raspberry jam in the store this weekend. We had it on ice cream last night....yum! The habanero did NOT go into the jam, don't worry!

Kia, my constant companion, enjoys our walks and the quiet beauty that surrounds us. A symphony of riotous color has been unfolding the last couple of's a spectacular sight to see. A crescendo of color before the muted grays, browns and white arrive.

William's Chicken Taco Recipe

2 chicken breasts diced small while still slightly frozen

2 Tbs. Sunflower Oil

1/4 white onion finely diced

1-2 cloves garlic minced

1 jalapeno minced (less if you don't like the heat)

2 Tbs. White Vinegar

1 tsp. chili powder

Dash of salt

Final Assembly Needs:

Corn tortillas

Fresh Cilantro

Fresh Limes

Hot Sauce

Directions: Saute onion in sunflower oil. Once it is translucent add the garlic, jalapeno, chicken, vinegar, chili powder and salt. Saute until chicken is cooked and all the moisture has evaporated. Serve on a warmed corn tortilla with chopped onion, cilantro, taco sauce and a squeeze of lime.

There's nothing like a good taco on a blustery Fall day! Hint, hint...

That's it for now. News of the farm is that once again the ground beneath our feet feels squishy and the toes of my shoes are damp not dusty!

We're sending lots of love your way!
