hey sweet pea…ya little cutie veg you…

as i mentioned, my friends are paying me in veggies to do their organic farm’s website.  i love it.  here is today’s snack…

they’re the most delicious snap peas in the whole entire world. they just have to be.  i can’t imagine finding sweeter, crisper peas.

they were all normal size peas, but this little cutie, seen here with a ibuprofen…

i also had a raw organic trail mix bar….which was disgusting!!!!

but oh, …the peas….

ww – garlic in everything, please

weekend veggie love…

sunday’s food specifically.  we went to my friend’s farm and, as i mentioned in an earlier post, worked our bums off.  we were pullin’ up organic veg for 4.5 hours, then hopped into the trucks and went to the main house for the most delicious feast.  almost entirely made from herbs and veg from their farm and eggs from their chicks.  most dishes were vegan, too.

she made one vegetarian and one non-vegetarian fritatta…

they’re like omelets, only not gooey or greasy because they’re baked.

other dishes!  2 different kinds of vegan pasta salad that were so fresh and delicious!  one was the freshed basil pesta pasta salad, and the other was spinach bowtie pasta with really mild mushrooms!  this giant platter of the freshest root veg and radishy type things with an amazing dressing.  one veg i had never even heard of before and ….i’ve forgotten it. oh and the MOST delicious fresh pea pods ever!  and fresh endive salad and her famous cowboy cavier. (her best batch yet)

for desert, fresh baked cookies and this honey and citrus/berry fruit dish that….had too many things i was allergic to, but looked delicious.  i should have taken more pictures, but we were starving so i didn’t have the strength to hold the camera …

lady bug and a promise to reduce gross out factor!

wow, i had the best weekend and i just feel like a ten year old who has returned from a day at disney land!

but i can’t talk about it right now…but i do have an important announcement:

i really appreciate the regualar visitors we get here at cody bear’s friends, and i want you to keep coming back…so, from now on…any blog that has to do with creepy, scary bugs or things that involve the digestive system of my dog will be prefaced with a warning.  at lease one of my blog readers hates bugs very, very much and another reader is not comfortable with things that make one queazy.

that being said, here is an adorable lady bug!

yes, about 50 percent of my waking hours were spent in the great outdoors this weekend!  i’ll blog about it later,….once i get back from the bar.  bye all!

something tiny….

the previous mystery plant game was fun.  if you’re new to the site, see here and here.

this plant was given to me as partial payment for the website i am working on that i mentioned before.  they’re an organic farm and friends of mine.  i’ll do their web-site and they were going to pay me with vegetables.  well, THIS plant is one of my top five favorite plants and i have always wanted one!

what is the EXACT name of this mystery plant????

our past winner was livingisdetail. and i think she was content with her prize….
