We are alive and well in Ashland, OR

It seems like it has been forever since we last blogged.  Our intentions were to blog right from the beginning of our new assignment.  Things just didn't work out that way.

So, to all of you who have been waiting for a new post, We'll try to catch you up as best as we can. 

We have been in Ashland, OR for two months now at the Country Willows Inn Bed and Breakfast    Kara and Dan are new owners and have taken to innkeeping like a duck takes to water.   We are acting as consultants and innkeepers for them during this very busy summer season.  This is a 9 room B&B on 5 acres.   There is a pool, spa, geese, goats, lots of lawn and grounds, including a grape arbor, and a huge herb and flower garden.   Every morning Lynda goes outside and chooses the herbs and flowers that Howard then adds as garnish for the fruit and entree plates. 

Lynda has always loved to garden and is definitely getting her share of experiences.   So far she has helped harvest and then pit cherries, and harvest, strip, and bundle lavender.  Did you know that it takes about 2 hours to get 2 cups of lavender blossoms.   Lynda has planted tomatoes and Howard is patiently waiting for them to get ripe so he can use them in our dishes.

Of course with all the fresh food around, Howard has come up with some new sauce recipes - we now have Sauce D (Mint Sauce)  & E (Lavender Sauce) to add to our other sauces A (Port Wine) , B (Sour Cream Coffee Liquor) , & C (Orange Ginger).   Send us an e-mail if you would like one of the recipes
