This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey.  We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County.  We are green, conscious, and forward thinking.  We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating.  Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge.  Enjoy!

The pork chop recipe

My mother taught me to make pork chops, a recipe that is OH SO YUMMY when made by my mother. Gregg and I do our best.

First you brown the chops -- which takes very high heat, makes lots of smoke, and sometimes results in a visit from the fire department -- not a bad thing, necessarily -- so many of them are HOT! Remove the chops from the pan:

Saute some sliced onions (we use sweet but brown work fine) until carmelized. I threw some fresh sage in tonight as well as some sliced bunching onion from the CSA box:

Then you return the chops to the pan and cover with water and let them simmer for as long as you have. If the water dries up, just add more!
