1. Birdie’s pimento cheeses: Smoked Gouda and Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Jalapeño, and Classic are flavors I tried out. Most excellent.

2. The Botanica is a cool house plant shop in Birmingham AL.

3. Artifice World
I can’t explain. You need to look at the site for yourself.

4. Homemade Pimento Cheese
My dad used to make pimento cheese. Seemed easy. I gave it a go: 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, one small jar diced pimentos, 4 ounces of chunky blue cheese dressing, garlic powder, and mayonnaise to suit you. I probably used 4 tablespoons. Delicious!

No wonder the south is missing out on the future.

It was 2021. The pandemic was in a lull. Folks were feeling brave and coming back outside.

The hungry ones queued up. The bread lines were long and slow in those days.

The bread and pastries are delicious.

Today’s projects were both food related: boudin and slow cooker banana bread.

I boiled the Boudin for 7 minutes.
Then I fried it to crisp up the skin. Delicious!
All the while banana bread was cooking in the slow cooker.
Tasty

The odd colors are the result of the Hipstamatic X filter I am using for the #the100DaysProject.

The ostrich seems to hang out in this area of the park. This is the bird that tried to take my phone. We have a different relationship now.
He was talking up a storm.
This llama is checking me out. “You have a food bucket in there?”
Spring is wonderful at Alabama Safari Park. There are many babies.

1. I didn’t kiss a giraffe, but it was close.

2. She: You have mail.

I heard: Do you have Mayo?

Me: Yes

She: You have mail.

I heard: Do you have Mayo?

Me: Yes, I have Mayo.  

She: I will bring it to you.  

Me:  No thank you.  I have Mayo in the fridge.  

Traffic noise lessens

She: you have mail back at the office and I’ll bring it to you.

Me sheepishly: Oh. That would be awesome.

3. Walking in faith.

The store I randomly check for Mardi Gras Bock had some. It is only available during Mardi Gras season and a little after. Some years this store has none.
I still use my grandfather’s pliers. He wrapped the tape on the handles over 50 years ago.
It was an unexpected and unfortunate event.
That was followed by a fun afternoon at the barn.
