Green Chili

The Culinary Ride was a great success last Sunday. Eric, Seth, Ken, Carolyn and Katie spend much of the week getting the farm ready for visitors. Eric spent a good portion of the week getting things ready to make green chili with beans and pork shoulder, along with corn bread. Thankfully, he documented it. First he got the peppers ready.

Oh, who am I kidding. I have no idea what he did next. It involved A LOT of pots and dishes. After this, he started to get the pork shoulder ready.


After this, Eric did some magical work and yummy meat was had after 10 hours. Sunday morning, before the ride, I did help, kind of. I watched lovingly as he made the cornbread. At least I’ve taught Milo to say “yeah, papa!!” (clap, clap, clap) as Eric is cooking and while he is enjoying the outcome.

The day was a lot of fun. Milo was so excited and enjoyed everyone so much. He even got a bike ride in.

Which was followed by a dance off.

This Saturday we will have eggs (small, medium, large and x-large), peppers, eggplant, broccoli, arugula, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic, and winter squash.
