This episode includes the following segments: On the Porch, Ever-expanding Skill Set, and Yarn Lover at Large. There is lots of news from MDSW and NHS&W.  Plus, I announce the winners of the “Regions of Kindness” contest.


On the Porch


Ever-expanding Skill Set

So far this month, I’ve made my typical turkey tacos, and breakfast tacos.  I have plans for dessert tacos and fish tacos using some tips for crispy baked fish from the current issue of Cook’s Country.

My favorite photo from last weekend: the chicken ladies.  All of these smart, beautiful women (my sister Jessica, Mom, and Claire) tend to chickens and generally make the world a better place.
