Yesterday I was putzing around the garden in shorts, no kidding! Today I have my thickest jacket, boots, and scarf on. WTH is going on?!
The world is obviously in turmoil. Not just weather-wise, but on many fronts as well. The ongoing pandemic, though in some places has somewhat abated, leaves many local officials offering confusing and conflicting directives.
Politically, the situation in Ukraine could not have moved in a worse direction.
Listening to the news makes me feel uneasy. It’s very hard to sleep well at night these days.
Is it just me or is anybody else feeling this way?
I need to look at my seed catalogs, buy plants, or cook and bake more. Or all of the above. That’s what I need. As soon as I get home from work today, I’ll clean my seed-starting trays, and then I’ll be cooking up a storm. To feed my soul.
I’ll be trying to perfect my Po’boy sandwiches. Maybe gumbo will be on the menu as well since we’ll be celebrating Mardi Gras in a few days. And beignets, of course. Always beignets. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
Let’s See What Our Friends Are Offering
“I always have panko breadcrumbs at home but never thought of making them myself. This is something I need to try in the future.” — Jhuls
“Now this is a brilliant idea! I’ve turned my sourdough discard into everything I could think of – naan, pancakes, muffins, crumpets, waffles, you name it. But I haven’t tried crackers. Holy cow, I’m excited to give this a try!” — Angie
“Brown Sugar Shortbread, why not?! It sounds scrumptious!” — Angie
“This one is right up my alley. Mexican Fiesta rice, salsa, corn chips… how could you go wrong with those ingredients?!” — Angie

Yes I feel the same Angie, my heart & prayers go out to the people of Ukraine. What a horrific time for them!
I feel so sad for them, especially the little children ?
I love popping in here for the party. I always find such inspiring ideas and recipes. Thank you for hosting. I hope you have a FANTASTIC week. I brought CHICKEN & DUMPLING SOUP, CELERY SEED DRESSING & PINEAPPLE RAISIN TAMALES this week.

Always love this party! Thanks for hosting and thank you so much for sharing my Gluten Free Panko Breadcrumbs.
Have a great week xx
I think I may adapt your recipe to make whole wheat panko, Kate. It’s not always easy to find and why is it so expensive?!
