we all have issues…

… maybe foodies more than most.  Chicago and (classic one upmanship) New York.

it’s maple syrup time again…

 

I read this morning that (relatively) warm sunny days and below freezing nights make the maple trees productive.  We’re in luck!  My jug of natural tree sugar is running low and luckily there are two NY state Maple Weekends this year!  I would love to go to one of the pancake breakfasts but the closest is at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds and I fear that would be a zoo…

Mark your calendar…March…Maple…

I’m thinking homemade maple granola, maple marshmallows, maple walnut ice cream

Ah, Chuck the woodchuck.  Bane of my existence in the summers when my garden is growing and my parsley disappears overnight.  Moves pretty fast for a chubby guy.  However, today is his day and he must be reveling in the glory of being a groundhog.  I’ll allow it today only – and hope for spring to come soon…
