A family affair.

Compulsory Giant Chicken Picture

It has been a busy couple of weeks at Good Life Ranch Bed and Breakfast. We have gotten to play host to our dear friends the Smith Family and then immediately afterward my parents and brother arrived at the farm. Having people visit us has made the whole transition to this new lifestyle seem more real. We own a farm; we have animals (including 42 bunnies that we got the day the Smith’s arrived). The theme of both visits, other than touring the grounds, was: how much can we cook and eat. Menus included: Geoff’s homemade pesto with tri-color pasta and fresh mozzerella, freshly squeezed lemonade, ice-tea brewed in the sun, chocolate pot de creme, freshly picked berries with melted chocolate, a whole roasted chicken with potatoes and green beans, creme brulee, meringue cookies with chocolate ganache, salmon with whole wheat linguine and a lemon caper sauce, four kinds of homemade pizza, and bacon and egg breakfast tacos. If there is such a thing as an eating camp, we definitely sponsored one for the past week and a half.

Good Eats

The custards about to go into the oven.

Another highlight of our visit was the tour we took of the Maker’s Mark Distillery in Loretto, KY. Rather than give you the full details of that trip, I will bait you with the news that in the next day or two this little blog will host its first guest blogger. Mr. Cody Perret will grace us with his impressions of farm life, Kentucky, food’s prepared at home, and whatever else on earth he wants. It is sure to delight.

Until then, satiate yourself on this picture of Cody at the farm:

    Lindsey and Geoff are the best hosts! Their home and ranch are beautiful and the food was great! I can’t wait to go back!

    You have a talent for making me jealous. Good food, a bourbon tour and adorable bunnies? Amazing.

    I can’t wait for Cody’s post! Will the blog have a new name?
