A Taste of Tuesday: Spice Primer

I got one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever received for my birthday from Heather. She made me this awesome chart so I could learn how to use spices. Hope you find it as helpful as I do!

Send me an email if you would like a PDF version of it.

5 Miles in the Stick Marsh

I was joined today by the divine Ms. H for a 5 mile jaunt through the stick marsh. Weather was perfect, and there were tons of critters out there, including tons of alligators (including 8 way too close to the bush that I usually use for a pee stop - wound up holding it today :-), lots of white pelicans, black-neck stilts, bobolinks (which turned out to be a life bird for me!) I didn't take a ton of pictures, but if you didn't GOYB and join us, here's what you missed:

Terrible iPhone photo, but trust me, it's a Bobolink, there were a zillion out there.

A HUGE soft-shell turtle who was kind enough to pose for us before he meandered off into the grass.
Fun in the sun, great conversation, and lots of wildlife.

Be sure to check the schedule for our next trip. Remember, you can see cool pictures here on the web site, but you can only see a soft shell turtle in person if you GOYB and join us!
