this week offered so much to be thankful for at Dig In Farm. there were a lot of firsts (first time hosting both of our families for thanksgiving, making us finally feel like full grown adults), first time eating meat in over 15 years (whew-- there was a lot of thought and intention that went in to that decision-- see last post if curious-- but as for the actual experience of eating it: it's chewy! who knew?), first big snowstorm of the season (during which my family constructed a seven-foot tall snowy owl outside my kitchen window that has been slowly melting all week), first time jacob made insane sweet-cream-cheese-filled bagel bites (!!!) from the momofuku cookbook (hopefully a first of many, many more times).

we cooked, feasted, and played joy of cooking charades, during which my highlight of the week occurred: my brother attempting to act out "haricot green beans with balsamic vinaigrette."

we have a lot of exciting projects brewing here, coming soon. for now, here are some pictures of this winter wonderland-- come visit. we'd love to cook you a feast.
