Dishing Up the Dirt

Bloody Mary Sunday

I am usually a coffee or tea drinker in the morning. However, certain Sundays call for a celebration.

Taylor and I are finally taking weekends off from the farm. All of the hard work from the early spring and summer is finally paying off. We no longer work seven days a week. Now we only go to the farm to harvest for our farmers markets, CSA, and restaurant accounts. We still do odds and ends to maintain everything, however, all of the monotonous work of keeping a farm going during the heart of the season is winding down for a while. We get to coast along with easier farm chores until November. We are trying to soak up this slower season as much as possible. It always goes by too fast!

Do the smiles give it away? Harvesting our crops is way more fun than hauling manure, seeding, planting, killing bugs/pests or weeding. We only have a small window of down time and right now is that time!!!

In celebration of a day off from farm work I thought a bloody mary was only appropriate. I hope you all get the day off to fire up a skillet of eggs and potatoes, mix up a few bloody marys and enjoy the afternoon.

We adapted this recipe from Bobby Flay. We made a few adjustments (we added sriracha sauce!) However, the recipe credit goes to him. These were easy and tasty. As always play around with the recipe and make it your own.

Spicy Bloody Mary

  • 16 oz organic tomato juice
  • 3 oz good quality vodka

  • Cutting celery spears and cherry tomatoes for garnish

      I know, we are already thinking about springtime and we need to stop and slow down for at least a few minutes to enjoy the quieter time!

    Those are beautiful. Bloody Mary is my favorite daytime cocktail-salad in a glass! Have you ever blended up fresh tomatoes instead of using store-bought juice? Make sure to add plenty of salt, lemon, and maybe even a little vinegar and you’ve really got a fresh base for that Sunday treat. I delight in your recipes, Andrea-you really know how to appreciate your life!

    1. Andrea says:

      haha! I love it. Salad in a glass. Perfect.

  9. Hard work pays off!! Hope Henry enjoys you two as you hang out in the mornings at home on the weekends 🙂 You deserve every bloody mary for all your success so far this year!!

    1. Andrea says:

      thank you!

  10. You make me want to run away to the country side <3

  11. These are so beautiful! Congratulations on weekends off – that’s huge!
