Greetings. My name is Lisa. I live in South Carolina with my husband and our son.
I love to cook and study food history. Ergo, a large portion of the content, on Under McCutcheon’s Moon, will stem from my assorted culinary endeavors and my search to discover the context in which certain foods become our cultural and historical markers.
Other blog content will be centered on the things, outside of food, that make life great. I believe that music, the arts, and books exist to enrich our lives. Healthy food helps energize and heal our bodies, but select music, art, and writings expose valuable lessons and universal truths that open our hearts, heal our minds and, consequently, lead us to become better, more responsible world citizens.
The last chunk of blog content will emanate from my love of nature and my desire to help protect it. I will periodically highlight organizations influencing important wildlife and environmental protection legislation. I will also post nature photography and writings detailing relevant environmental and wildlife issues.
I am not a food, health, or life expert, so the information contained, within this blog, should never be used in lieu of professional advice. I am, however, an explorer – a seeker. I choose to believe that we really can make a positive difference when we choose to seek, discover, and protect. Through discovery, we learn how to better protect ourselves, each other, and the world around us.
I look forward to fun, healthy conversations about posted topics. Unfortunately, there are web trolls who find great joy in disrupting meaningful and/or fun discussions. Therefore, I reserve the right to delete and/or moderate comments that are written with an obviously mean-spirited intent. Please be respectful of other people’s feelings and beliefs in the comments section and in life.
NAMING THE BLOG
I grew up spending summer days and nights on McCutcheon’s Farm.
I used to climb trees, build forts, and roam the land with a dog named Sam. Evenings with my family were spent cooking and eating, watching the night skies, listening to nature, and talking about everything from world events to books, music, and the arts.
McCutcheon’s Farm has always been a special place where the frogs, crickets, and owls sing freely, the deer graze peacefully on tender shoots, and the red fox moves – largely undetected, Under McCutcheon’s Moon.
McCutcheon’s Farm is much more than acreage on a map. On McCutcheon’s Farm, I learned how to become a good steward of the land. I learned how to respect and protect animal and plant species. I learned how to grow and prepare delicious food. I learned the value of hard work, and I later came to understand how unconditional love can heal and transform most anyone or anything.
While the world around McCutcheon’s Farm has changed immensely in the last 40 years, the farm is still the same. Everyone is still welcome, and the love for nature and humanity still runs deep, Under McCutcheon’s Moon. I hope that you will grow to think of this blog, Under McCutcheon’s Moon, as an extension of the great things about McCutcheon’s Farm.
