lil_appel #tbt to this photo I took last week of some new @kimballhouse deliciousness-ness, aka the Basil Fix. It was also featured on @imbibe, which was pretty rad. Totally deserved and totally tasty. #cocktail #kimballhouse #summer #instagood #feedfeed #drinks #beauty #summervibes #happiness @miles_macquarrie 6d

lil_appel Last night, I dreamt of a small property I used to go to for summer day camp. I remember being fascinated by the power lines running through the main field, because of their massive size, by mostly because they buzzed just like the cicadas whose shells we'd find on branches in the forest around our house. This morning I was visited by my own cicada (who was alive and well), and I can only take it for the symbolism it represents - good rebirth, change and protection against bad luck. #cicada #nature #nostalgia #leanleftfarms #weloveatl 1w

lil_appel A new ritual of making beautiful stuff on Sunday. @djgroundbeef used our leftovers from the farmer's market, eggs from my neighbor's chickens, my foraged chanterelles from yesterday and sorrel foraged in the yard today to create some serious beauty. All served in a crazy old skillet on the walnut platter I made for him for Christmas. Life is. #brunch #grantparkfarmersmkt #wildfood #wildfoodlove #localfood #weloveatl #farm2co #farm2me #feedfeed #sunday #happiness #happybelly 1w

lil_appel Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, but most especially to the dude who's taught me more than anyone on the planet. Every time I start to feel lost, endlessly frustrated or doubtful of my life path, my phone rings with words of reassurance. Like clockwork. We share a birthday, a love of wild animals and a whole lot of stories and belly laughs...and he still calls me impish names and says 'awwww f*#% you Linds' when I'm givin' him shit. Love you, Dad! #fathersday #sunday #indiana #birdtamer #film 1w

lil_appel A little mushroom beauty. Thank you @djgroundbeef for showing me the amazing-ness that is the mushroom world. 30 years without them now seems virtually unfathomable. Consider my taste buds changed for the better. #mushrooms #mycology #snack #nomnom #instafood #feedfeed #happybelly #kimballhouse 2w

lil_appel Little things matter. Being kind matters. Spent last night and this morning marinating on thoughts and dreams with a new boldness. Consider me drunk on ideas and giddy with the idea of a plan. And btw : trellising peas up your windows... #socute #tiny #snack #peapod #leanleftfarms #urbangardening #porchgarden #littlepeasbigdreams #nomnom 2w

lil_appel First snapping turtle I've ever seen in the wilds of ATL - and @djgroundbeef and I almost stepped right on him. Growing up, the snappers used to migrate from the pond below our house to the pond above to lay their eggs. I can't tell you how many times we found them in the yard and my hippie, animal loving father would say 'Now there's one thing in this world I don't see any positive in, and that's a snapping turtle'...and then they were promptly made into soup. #nostalgia #countrylife #indiana #snappingturtle #wildlife #nomnom #weloveatl #exploregeorgia #ididntturnhimintosoup 3w

lil_appel Love of foraging + new pasta obsession = total bliss. First try at midnight mezzelune (filled with sautéed chanterelles, ricotta, parm, asiago, etc. and topped with brown sage butter) with @kaciemakes. #beesknees #mezzelune #chanterelles #foraging #foraged #wildfoodlove #wildfood 3w

lil_appel Little chanterelle family + my first tiny cinnabars. Got a little roughed up in the bag thanks to Sumo pup getting reaaaaaal excited about a squirrel (typical), but they're still gonna taste amazing in the homemade ravioli they're destined for tonight. Happy Friday everyone! #tgif #chanterelle #cinnabar #foraged #foraging #wildfoodlove #wildfood #mycology #forest #happyhour 3w
