From Prep to Table: 35 minutes
So I don’t typically follow recipes when I’m cooking. I love to just look at a few and then combine my favorite elements of each of them or just let my imagination take me somewhere. But for those who like to start with a recipe, here is a good one from Pioneer Woman for the Bruschetta Chicken
The Green Beans were straight from our garden. I just cleaned them and clipped the ends and then sautéd them in butter and olive oil with a little Johnny’s Season Salt (JSS is my not very secret ingredient for almost everything)
The Yukon Golds were Steamed in a Steaming Basket and then I drizzled Sea Salt and a little Melted Butter over top.

If you want your little girls to look positively adorable for your portrait session, Persnickety is a great place to go! Persnickety was awesome enough to send over a huge box of beautiful clothing from their Fall Line for me to use for my model session at the Seattle Workshop that I taught back in June. These are a few images I captured back on the farm of one of the outfits we didn’t model.

I found this Cookies & Cream Scone Mix by Suburban Contessa at our little local market in Hockinson. I decided to pick up a bag and make them up for breakfast that weekend – they were so delicious I was back for more the same week. There are several different flavors and great news, you can get a hold of them online too! I’m definitely going to need more bags… So yummy and perfect for weekend house guests!
