Homemade Bread, a Woodpile and Sunshine

How I love these glorious Australian Autumn days!

Every day starts off crisp and cool, but soon the sun is out, drenching everything in a warm, golden glow.

We’ve been working hard here at Citadel Kalahari: stacking hay, readying gardens for winter, and hauling lots of fallen deadwood to cut up for winter bonfires.

I’ve been making lots of different breads to go with the hearty soups and stews that are perfect for these chilly Autumn nights.

I’ve made garlicky Turkish flatbread, tall loaves of 3-seeded wholegrain, and a round rustic loaf of spiced raisin cottage cheese. Mmm, they’re so lovely fresh from the oven and slathered with creamy butter.

The raisin bread is especially good sandwiched with sharp cheddar cheese and grilled. Delicious. 🙂

Our three baby Boer goats are doing beautifully. They’re already running around with the herd, and nibbling happily on hay and pellets.

  1. I LOVE those baby goats, they are ridiculouly adorable! I also love the picture of the eggs, are the eggs from your farm? I am soooo jealous! I am also wondering where you get all your amazing sounding recipes from. I am often game to try new recipes and obviously there is no lack of recipe sites on the internet, but your food always looks so darn good! =)

    1. Thank you, Mel! Yes, they are from our farm, our chickens. 🙂 As far as recipes, I read a lot and think a lot. 🙂 My recipes are a hodge-podge of traditional things (like roast pork) and my own twist (maple glaze). My two favorite cookbooks are Once Upon A Tart and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. 🙂

      1. Hi, Krista
        I like this farm sooo much. It is my dream! Where is it? If I have money, the first thing is buy a farm like this.

        1. Thank you, Allen. 🙂 The farm is in Australia and we love it very much. 🙂 I have seen beautiful farms in places like England, Ireland, and Italy as well. So many lovely places in this world. 🙂
