    Howzit? I just left a ridiculously long and silly comment over at Buns In My Oven, possibly fueled by insufficient tea or the Neatorama video of a hilarious SWA flight attendant’s patter, I dunno, but I feel tapped out. I got nuttin’.
    I made a pizza. It’s got CSA farm share radishes in cute lil Easter colors. I added a [insert Meghan adjective] of cheese to it. It’s good. Try it.
    I finished up hashtagcarrot week a month after I started it, no comment about women’s inability to measure things after being constantly told that something that appears to be 5 inches is actually 10 . . . ahem, so Overnight Yeasted Carrot Waffles. You do all the thinking the night before when you mix everything up, then all you gotta do is roll out of bed and preheat the waffle iron while your tea is steeping . . . my kind of breakfast effort.
    And matzoh, sustainably harvested from . . . . nope–it was marked down and I like magical mark down stickers so I covered it–the matzoh, not the sticker–with butter, sugar, chocolate, caramel, and sea salt. Yum.
    Have a lovely day, I’ll be back tomorrow trying to win the new book. Since I very much enjoyed her first book–so clear and easy to follow along, I think I’ve made 4-5 recipes from it–I look forward to this one!
    Thanks for hosting!

    Thanks for hosting! I shared caramelized popcorn substitute from a modified family favorite treat that’s now corn-free and gluten-free. Enjoy!

    Thanks for hosting lovely lady. I got in on the action two times this week. Double the pleasure; double the fun. Oh and double the veggies too since I shared my Garlic Roasted Asparagus with Cherry Tomatoes and my Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes. If I was celebrating Easter, I’d want both of these at my table!!
