An Excess of Eggs Leads to....

Homemade pudding.
 Homemade pudding leads to homemade banana pudding pie.
 And the left over egg whites will lead to meringues later, if the munchkin will go to bed on time tonight. If not, maybe an egg white omelet for breakfast.
I am starting to get caught up on some home food prep here, and that means eating healthily, at home, and incorporating as much of our own stuff as possible. We had an awesome pasta salad for dinner last night (I didn't make the pasta this time) with tons of fresh, chopped herbs and some chopped spinach and arugula from the garden. It vanished quickly. Is anyone else making anything special lately that incorporates fresh ingredients? I know you are! Do tell!
Also yesterday I found something fun for my sewing space at the thrift store:
Well, it's a beautiful day, and it's just me and the bunny today as my husband has gone to play trumpet with a wedding band. Have a good one, whatever you are doing.


  1. I love that thread rack! It's perfect. That banana pie looks pretty delicious, too.

  2. The closest thing to fresh that I make is pesto. It's simple and soo yummy. The basil is from my garden, but the garlic and pecans are from the store. :-/

    That pudding looks delicious!

  3. That looks so good.Im always looking for egg recipes too. I'm starting to make things from the garden. Salad, basil, strawberries, oranges, and avocados now.

  4. A very nice sewing find at the thrift store! We are making sure we start with a homemade salad (without dressing) then eat dinner. Filling up on raw veggies makes me not eat so much other stuff.

  5. @Amy I felt so lucky to find that thread rack! It's kinda country too :)

    Cassandra, that is awesome! What kind of basil do you use? I have grown the traditional stuff and the spicy globe basil. And we all love garlic. Even the baby eats garlic :)
    @Sew Country Chick
    Oooh- you have avocados? I am jealous. The pudding is super easy- 10 minutes from start to finish.
    We are eating a lot of salad too. That is just the thing when it starts to heat up like this! We do homemade dressing. My current favorite is equal parts honey, mustard, olive oil, and a.c. vinegar.


Thanks for stopping at Farmhouse Garden! I love to hear from you...
