We were outside eating dinner and Chris said chips ahoy, thus the title. I can fix some weird dinners. Tonight it was Bocca chicken patties with a chutney sauce along with kale chips, zucchini chips, and potato chips inspired by http://theroadtoserendipity.wordpress.com/ In my opinion the ingredients for successful chips are parchment paper, sea salt, mixed pepper, a little olive oil, and nutritional yeast. I did not use it on the potato chips as they were good alone, and that would have been overkill.
This year or at least this summer we are living a little more off the land. The kale, zucchini, and potatoes came from our garden. Our lunch of a salad consisted of lettuce and cucumbers from the garden, and the blackberry cobbler we had for dessert from yesterday’s post was made from blackberries picked on the farm. We picked a new batch today. That was going well until the tractor (we were also working on the trails as we went along) disturbed a yellow jacket nest. I was stung only once luckily. It still hurts. Most fortunately Chris wasn’t stung at all. He is highly allergic. While out picking, though, a new idea for the farm came, “Blackberry Fields Forever.”
The peaches are small, but it is the first batch ever from our peach tree. Earlier we had some blueberries from a very small bush that we have. The birds kept getting the later yields.
