A #SpringSweetsWeek G & T
It's Friday! So, I opted to post a #SpringSweetsWeek version of one of my favorite cocktails: the gin and tonic. And I made it festive by rimming my glass with the Cottontail Confetti sprinkle mix from SprinklePop and a PEEPS® garnish. Going back to event sponsor PEEPS®' question of Team Chicks and Team Bunnies, I am solidly #PEEPSBunnies. Sorry, Chicks, you didn't sit on my glass as well.

Ingredients

Cocktail
  • 2 ounces gin
  • 3 to 4 ounces tonic
  • 2 to 3 lime wedges (I used Key limes from Melissa's Produce)
  • ice

Garnish
  • sprinkles (I used the Cottontail Confetti from SprinklePop)
  • PEEPS® (I used a bunny)

Procedure
Pour sprinkles out onto a small plate. Moisten the rim of your glass and press it gently into the sprinkles. Fill the glass with ice.

Pour in the gin. Squeeze in lime wedges and discard the peels. Pour in tonic water. Stir to combine. Garnish with a PEEP.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
