Well what should we have for dinner this week?

I've been keeping myself busy quilting for the past few days.  It gives my mind something to focus on other than all the terrible news we've been hearing.

Whiling Away the Time with Marenco Brachetto d'Acqui Pineto #ItalianFWT

Make every day a celebration of life, health and love.  Pour that wine, toast to those you love and can't be with and find good in what is becoming our new normal....

And while we are at it let's toast to all the other countries in the world affected so horrendously by this virus.  We are visiting Italy today with our Italian Food Wine Travel group.  And our thoughts and prayers are with them as they struggle to get through this devastating time.

Please Join Me in Watching "The Biggest Little Farm" #FoodnFlix

Food 'n Flix

I am excited to be hosting our FoodnFlix for this month.  FoodnFlix is a fun group that gets together each month and all watch the same film chosen by one of the members.  We then make and post a recipe that was inspired by the film. At the end of the month, the host who chose the film does a roundup of all the recipes shared.  It is so much fun.  If you would like to join us you can learn how right here.

The Biggest Little Farm (2018) - IMDb

I chose the documentary The Biggest Little Farm for this month.  This was released in January 2019 and my son, Chuck, contacted me after seeing it and told me I was going to love it.  I did!!!  And I immediately contacted our leader Heather of All Roads Lead to the Kitchen and immediately secured a spot for hosting.  This spot was the first available.

This documentary follows the life of John and Molly Chester who decide to start a sustainable farm near Los Angeles, California.  John,  a documentarian by trade,  does a great job of portraying their journey filled with failures and successes, over the next several years.

The farm is called Apricot Lane Farms and is still thriving.  You can find both the Biggest Little Farm and Apricot Lane Farms on Facebook.  Apricot Lane Farms also has a blog that you can follow.

I got this film from the library, all of which are closed right now.  I think you can watch the film for free on You Tube.  It is also available for rent or sale on many of the on demand stations.

So while we are stuck inside our homes, fighting off this terrible virus that has infected our world, pop in this movie and learn about the people that want to keep our world and food safe.

Once you have watched and posted your review and recipe pop me an email at and to Heather at by April 28th so that we can include you in the roundup.

I hope you all enjoy this film as much as I.  Stay home/stay safe/stay well......
