For some of us, it would be owning a B&B that serves beautiful food to guests. Others of us would take off on a high-end, everlasting foodseeking journey with no limits. My lifestyle fantasy would be something like this:
I'd own a farm, a farm with many fruit trees and a huge vegetable garden. It would be as self -sustaining as possible: a chicken coop for eggs and poultry, a rabbit hutch for meat. I would love it if there could be a cow in there somewhere, maybe two: milk, home-raised beefsteak..........I would certainly try my hand at cheesemaking, and hopefully I'd have an endless supply of thick cream that I could doctor into Creme Freeeeeeeeeesh. Heavy cream to pour over pies, raw milk for cafe con leche, oh my. The orchard is dappled with sunlight on a warm beautiful day; apple trees for pie, grapes for wine and eating out of hand.Home-canned jams and jellies. Pears: late Summer/Fall pear crumbles and juicy orbs to munch. Chutneys of all stripes, hotted up with peppers and chilis, or sweetened with honey and treated with crunchy nuts. The veg garden is tomato heavy, for salting and eating directly, and for more chutneys, jams, sandwiches sprinkled with pepper, good bread spread with lemony mayonnaise, or treated to bacon and shredded lettuce. The abundance is dazzling. Anyone who loves fresh fruit and vegetables is invited to come take the excess in a respectful way....if you want to pay, pay; if you can't or don't want to, that's all right too because everybody needs to eat.
What's yours, Ducks?
