Ad’s Home!

He’s been in Idaho for 3 1/2 weeks to do field work, but is now home for a short break before heading back again. We’ve been doing fun stuff, but first a quick deck garden tour.

Now to the good stuff. Saturday we went raspberry picking! I voted for blueberries, but Ad loves raspberries and the raspberry farm was closer, so raspberries it was. We made the right choice.

We picked them at Eplegaarden, just outside of Madison. It’s a lovely place. They encourage you to eat while you pick and to fill the pint containers as full as you absolutely can. Ad displayed some excellent raspberry piling skills. Most of these babies went into our tummies unwashed and straight from the bowl when we got home (YAY for no pesticides!). We did manage to save a few for fancier things.

Like this warm brie with honeyed raspberries and almond. You can find the recipe here.

And this yummy raspberry cocktail that we created ourselves!

And today we went to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison. Free and close by, so an excellent option for our budget-conscious selves.
