    I can’t wait to hear your Youuuuuge news!
    In the meantime, how about a vegan Orange-spiked Beet and Walnut spread if it’s all sunny where you are? It’s still snowy here, so I’m warming up with a Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Chili with Hatch chiles, Corn, and Butch.
    I’m also thumbing my nose at St Patrick’s day with a Guiness-braised Brats and Broccoli-topped Baked Potato dish. So there!
    Yeah, I got nuttin’ . . .
