Found a couple of princes lounging around in my pond today….living the life as only princes can.

Jessica & Lee

I'm fortunate enough to own two businesses that I love,  London Wolfe Photography where I do wedding photography and Sun and Moon Creations where I make natural products like soap and insect repellent.  I was doing photography long before I got into natural products with Sun and Moon Creations, so now and then I like to share some of my wedding images.  Wedding season is in full swing now, and so are the farmers' markets (where I sell my natural products)
 - so these days I'm a very busy girl! 
We didn't know Superman was going to make an appearance at this wedding, but there he was at Marrara's Mountain Lodge in Port Matilda, PA disguised as a groom.  What a great couple to work with!  The weather turned out much nicer than expected and these two made a beautiful pair.  

Congrats Jessica and Lee!!!

Red Potato Surprise!

Remember those potatoes I dug up the other day?  Well it turns out the "red skin" potatoes had more than just red skin....they are red all the way through!  I do not remember ordering red potatoes, but either I forgot about ordering them (which is totally possible), or the seed company mixed up my order and gave me half Yukon Golds and half of these mystery potatoes.  This photo shows what they looked like as "smashed potatoes".  They were very good, slightly different from white potatoes, but very good!  Here's how I prepared them:

Smashed Potatoes

Boil potatoes in water until tender.  Drizzle olive oil on a baking sheet and set drained potatoes on the sheet.  With a fork, smash each potato slightly.  Brush with a little more olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and fresh thyme.  Bake at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until crispy.

Chioggia Beets

Chioggia Beets!  They look like little targets.  These are the latest delightful goodies from my garden.  I just cooked them, sliced them and served them on a salad - yummy!  Chioggia beets are so much more fun than ordinary red beets, don't you agree?  They are like the fashionistas of the garden....and they look so pretty on a salad.
