    Beautiful pictures!!! That dinner looks awesome! I am guessing that is your homemade pesto on those yummy looking noodles? Do you put anything else on them, or just the pesto?

      Kristen, Thanks! It was a nice week for photos 🙂 That actually was chickweed pesto with pumpkin seeds with Chanterelles on the side. A cheater dinner for sure, the noodles make up in about 5 minutes and cook in about 5 minutes – very fast!

    You captured fall beautifully in these photos. Do you actually have chanterelles growing on your property or a secret spot? Lucky you…I think they are about $12.00 a lb. Can you give us the recipe for those yummy looking noodles??

      Chris, yes we do have chanterelles on our property because our farm is predominately forest as opposed to pasture. But they are also in a secret spot since we have so many “property enjoyers.”

      I just use the noodle portion of this recipe:
      And if I am cooking them in salted water as opposed to broth they get done in about 5 minutes. In the post it shows the noodles cut in small pieces but usually to save time, I just roll up the dough, cut very thin (they expand a lot) with a sharp knife and unroll the individual noodles. Much faster, and if you have an egg and some flour on hand you’re in business. I have not had much luck doubling the recipe, so if I need more, I make two batches simultaneously since it is such a stiff dough and hard to mix.

    Are those chestnuts in between your boots?

    Chestnuts are my favorite nut for eating plain.

    What a beautiful sight .. all of your pictures. I’m heading over to read about the homemade noodles as that’s on my to do list.

      Mrs. Mac, these are so simple, I always had it in my mind that noodles required a pasta maker and all sorts of time. Then I tasted these and the all those notions were tossed aside. No drying, just make, cook and eat.

    I want to hear more about your chestnut tree!

    • November 3, 2010 3:10 pm

      Kristin, they are like weeds here, but oh so useful!

      Here’s a old post about them on our farm:

        Thanks, Matron! I’m not clear on how you ended up with these “wild” hybrids? Did someone in your family plant them at some point?

        • November 4, 2010 7:37 pm

          Kristin, the original tree is near our house and was planted by my grandparents – I have no idea where they got the seed or start. Also there was a commercial orchard and nut dryer on a nearby gentleman farm, that orchard was planted later and is now enveloped in tall timber, but here and there are seedlings throughout the woods. A nurseryman identified ours as a mix, all I really know is that they are a great tree to have around the farm.

          Have you read Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver? Excellent book with quite a bit of information about the American Chestnut.

    MMM. Love those mushrooms. Chanterelles are way past peak here on the east coast. We get them more like in Sept/Oct in the Northeast. Lovely photos as usual.

    Cats must love your farm. The last shot makes that evident. – Margy
