Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Shake THIS!

Hey did everyone feel the whole lotta shakin' Tuesday? Eye witness reports, including someone I know who was shaken awake from a nap (you know who you are) said that they felt the earthquake here in Ohio!

Me? I was too busy drowning in this loveliness... honestly I thought I was just dizzy from a sugar/caffeine rush and I missed the whole thing. Ha!

This is totally my new favorite snack.  It has all my favorites - coffee, milk, ice cream...and cream. Can you believe it? I found this here and just so's ya know... I'm considering moving to Aussie-land just so I can have one of these everyday. More likely tho....I'll just make my own right here on the farm.

Its totally easy peasy: make a shot of espresso (or strongly brewed coffee) and let it cool. Pour in a tall glass, add fresh, cold goat milk, then scoop up some vanilla ice cream. Top with whipped cream (yeah the real stuff) and then dust with cocoa. I thought this was just for show but the cocoa really adds some deliciousness. And actually you don't shake or mix it.. it just melts into a yummy mix. Can I get a hallelujah?

Chai Chai - since you "prefer coffee" I know you'll love this snack. Tell your walking friends I said "hi." Did everyone see how our Chai Chai gave some 'hell yeah' to a vexing vixen?  That's the way to get 'er done.

Anyway, back to the quake. Around here we didn't feel it. Dog#2 acted like there was a storm coming but everyone else was at their normal level of ridiculousness.... so no change and how would we even tell?

West Side friends, you'd give a laugh for sure about this quake and probably wouldn't even look up from your iPhones.... but the earthquake was big news around here. The local news just can't get enough.

So what's the word - did everyone survive EarthQuake 2011? And are you ready for the hurricane?

Buckle up friends, its gonna be a wild ride for sure. But at least we've got a new coffee snack to get us thru.

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

I'll take my drink with a double shot of espresso this morning.

We felt the earthquake here in Delaware, definitely a first for me!

I grew up in Florida with hurricanes, but I never had a farm full of animals to worry about. Looks like Ms. Irene is coming directly for us and possibly at a Cat 2. Not pleased. I am trying to figure out how I can even try to prepare...other than turkeys in my living room I am at a bit of a loss.

btw...I may make one of these coffee things and add a bit of "spice" while stressing about the weather this weekend!

That shake wasn't felt by me and Cecil here in NC.. and If I were to take a couple of sips of that shake you concocted I'd have a diabetic coma :o)..(I'm so tempted)

Everyone I talk to here in South Central, PA felt it. I and Belle didn't feel a thing. Hmmm.

I felt it, but thought it was one of the dogs scratching itself in the living room. My sister said, that's an earthquake! So, I did feel it here in Ohio, but it was kind of anticlimactic.

I clicked on the link and didn't see the snack, they both sent me back to my blog....

I still can't get the thought of those delicious BLT's your tomatoes from yesterday would make out of my mind.
