I learned the technique to making these hash browns before I even learned to cook. I started working when I was 14 and I haven’t stopped. I have never been fired and I have always had my next job lined up. When I was in college I worked at the local cafe/diner as a cashier. I started early before school at 4:30 in the morning and I walked there. I didn’t do much cooking of my own at that point, but I noticed how they prepared their hash browns, which were really good.

The other months are for tomato sauce, dried tomatoes or in this case: pickled green tomatoes. Farmers can get stuck in their own little farm food bubble, but I seriously thought that most people ate seasonly. Or I just didn’t think that much about it. Now I realize it’s only the hard core locavores eating in season and
5 o’clock at our house is a crazy time when everybody gets hungry and starts to turn into a monster. I used to be a super planner for my farm and for meals, but now I think that better things happen without planning. Last week I was trying to come up with something to make, but I had little on hand to work with. I remembered about migas, a recipe I saw on the back of a tortilla package. I have almost everything I need to make it at our farm and there are usually the bott
