The Music Camp

Black Betty and I are packing up the popup and heading towards Spartanburg on Friday to try a new festival experience. This will really be the 5th year for this little festival put on by members of The Bellville Outfit, but will be our 1st experience with it.

I actually learned of both the band and the festival while driving home from Asheville last month and listening to WNCW. The Bellville Outfit were live guests and I really enjoyed their music. They talked about the festival and I came home and purchased the incredibly affordable tickets ($60. each for the weekend and $30. a carload to camp).

The line-up looks awesome, the crowd should be small, and the camping fun! What's not to like?

Kitchen Jams

We had a big Thursday night family dinner last night. I cooked the last of our spring lamb, a nice leg over a hickory coal fire, Jeff brought delicious garlicky kale, and we roasted a big pan of potatoes, onions, garlic, red peppers, and mushrooms in olive oil. It was a great feast, the lamb was sooo tender and scrumptious, I hate to wait until next spring for another.

After dinner we had a kitchen jam with John on guitar:
