Lately I don’t know where my head has been. I have been negligent in my photo blogging and it’s NOT COOL- There are at least three people who read this blog and I am letting them down. This morning I woke up determined to spend the day focused solely on this blog and my photo mission. Litter-box be damned! Those cats will just have to wait. We had beautiful fluffy snow overnight and it was brilliantly bright and sunny which made driving out to the farm store an absolute joy! I took the long way and enjoyed the drive. I love Reber Rock farm. Reber Rock Farm is an 88-acre draft powered farm on the southern edge of the Reber Valley in Essex, NY and everything I have ever brought home from there has been top notch. Since this post was all about “eat” or “eating” I thought it would be fun to see what was in the store and put together dinner from the farm. We had a hearty stew with farm carrots, adirondack blue potatoes and garlic to compliment some some beef broth I made and it was topped off with dumplings. It was perfect. I’m also really looking forward to making the kids a special breakfast of pancakes with Reber Rock maple syrup! — Tarah

This was the one assignment that I didn’t find difficult — I guess I like taking closeup pictures of food! I am very frustrated, though, because I had some other photos I wanted to use, but they’re on a camera card that is currently missing. When one lives with young children, things tend to “disappear” and then suddenly reappear in the most unlikely of places. Case in point: my daughter just found the missing baby Jesus from our nativity in a box full of video game paraphernalia in her room. (I am very confident that she is not responsible for this — she was framed!) I’m really hoping my card turns up, and the whole situation reminds me that I need to take better care of my camera equipment (and perhaps put tracking devices on everything I own?)! — Kelli
