Wolf Creek Farm

beet & apple faux-slaw

A spark of ingenuity hit me last week while we were cooking up some beef tongue tacos (don't hate - lengua is delicious). We just started receiving our winter CSA share from Horse and Buggy Produce and in an effort to use up as much as we could, I came up with this concoction! This beet and […]

September 5, Day 248

This past Labor Day, despite the rain, we ventured out to Madison County to partake in the Meet Yer Eats Farm Tour. Meeting the people who grow my food means a lot to me, considering I'm putting a lot of trust (um, and my health) in their hands. Since Virginia is not a small state, […]

August 25, Day 237

Just wanted to share some of my experiments from today. 1) Homemade soup! Used homemade beef stock from here, added mushrooms and sundried tomatoes and let it boil & simmer for a while. Didn't really know what I was doing but it tasted awesome! A decent little treat in the afternoon.     2) Beef […]

Day 186 – 7.5.2011

Having just finished reading The Vegetarian Myth, I've been inspired to make use of more local and sustainable foods. I feel it's a responsibility everyone should take if access is readily available. Living in Central Virginia really does allow me to be more involved in the food that I consume. That's why I loved going […]

Days 174 – 178, 6.23.2011-6.27.2011

Phew! It's been a busy week! I completed my Whole30 (reflections to come!), we painted our revamped our apartment with Chris' parents, met up with my parents in Northern VA, had a great weekend, and now back to normal life! Let's review, shall we? 6.23.2011 - With Chris' parents in town and arriving late at […]

CrossFit 2-3x a week Work, work, work Editing photos from Guatemala Redecorating the apartment Work, work, work Sleep This is just to update all my photos. As a side note, you'll notice that there […]

Day 113

On Saturday, we ventured to the City Market for the last time before our trip. We stopped by Wolf Creek Farm's stand to say hello and meet them. (Hi Wolf Creek Farm!) They're unbelievably nice people. They actually know about my blog and offered us some homemade Beef Bulgogi and veggies (similar to kimchi). Seriously, […]

Day 100

Something I've been experimenting with lately has been offal. I got some tasty Beef heart parts at the Farmer's Market last weekend from Wolf Creek Farm and used 1/3lb yesterday. In thin slices, throw the beef heart into a pan with olive oil and your seasoning of choice. Five to ten minutes and you're done! […]

Day 82

Inspired by the crappy weather and the fact that we had to use up a lot of ingredients from our fridge (we're going to Philly tomorrow!), I wanted to make good use of some left over Wolf Creek Farm ground beef. Behold, lettuce burgers with bacon, egg, goat cheese, and cherry tomatoes. And yes, they […]
