for today...

outside my window... 60F & partly cloudy
i am thinking... that I am enjoying the longer days, 
thanks to Daylight Saving Time
i am thankful for... Cadbury Eggs and
TastyKakes Coconut Hippity Hops *yum*
i am wearing... blue jeans, a thermal shirt & my Birkie Slippers
i am going... grocery shopping again lol for the remaining ingredients needed
for my Easter baked goods, as I totally forgot to buy yeast and flour
i am currently reading...  the new edition of 'Milk Street'
i am hoping... to make tarts with the Lemon Curd in the refrigerator 
@ http://www.wineandglue.com/2017/03/easy-microwave-lemon-curd.html
on my mind... gas @ $2.29/gallon in NY, milk @ $2.15/gallon in NY, sugar @ $1.88/4 lb
pondering these words... "the deep roots never doubt spring will come."
~ Marty Rubin ~
from the kitchen... german potato salad & german weiners
around the house... hyacinths
one of my favorite things...  signs of Spring, my woodchuck finally emerged from
hibernation, and wandered out from the barn *click*
i'm creating... the April challenges @ The Lilypad
a few plans for the week...  make shrimp pasta salad, bake a ham,
and then the Easter Babkas, as well as our traditional Easter Cake, and
hopefully there will still be enough Lemon Tarts left to share :)
