We've been clearing brush and debris from in back of the house where the pines were cut, to open up space for the meadow, the workshop/shed, and the garden. Seemed the best place to burn some of this was right on the garden spot. A lot of the branches were right in this area anyway, and it was about the safest spot to have a fire since there weren't any dry twigs, leaves, etc. Richard and Katie tended the fire during the day, and Toby joined in when he arrived late in the afternoon. A great team effort by all involved. We anticipate a couple more burns before we're really all cleaned up, and the amazing progress on Sunday is great encouragement.
Last night, Katie and I came up with a delicious new recipe, which has been named but I can't remember it. We de-boned some chicken, spread it out, layered it with cheese (some with goat cheese, some with thin slices of cheddar), placed a strip of bacon and then rolled it all up. Place in an oiled pan, fold side down and then lightly sprinkle with rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees for an hour or so. Very, very tasty. We'll make it again, but are thinking next time of adding some caramelized onions. If you try this, let us know if you like it!
Laxo Burn can be found in the Fiddler's Throne.
