You might have an actual junk drawer. I do. This glass dish accumulation is on a smaller scale. The items need to be evaluated and most of them discarded.
An old eraser, the end of the curtain rod, Canadian coin, a single earring, perfume sample, a button from a blouse long gone, a knotty necklace chain, a pink polished rock, a rubber stamp square, a game token, a tiny key and an ivory brooch. I need the curtain rod piece. The rock can go in the dish of polished rocks I have on my desk in the hall. Maybe I have the other clip-on earring.
How do you like your eggs?
Just the other day, my friend Joanne told me of a documentary about Hummus. She sent me the trailer on YouTube and I was able to stream it and watch the various cultures claim the origin of this Middle Eastern Chickpea dish. Here’s the trailer of the film
Chickpeas – high in fiber and can lower cholesterol – two health benefits listed.
Hummus recipe you can make at home
Hummus Yes or no? If yes, What do you pair it with? Do you make your own?

That’s what Erika said as Maura (14) took this photograph. Maura texted the pic and asked me “do you know what this is?”
Thanks Maura. Another fun guest blog photo.

My sister Mary sent these two photos from New York City as she indulged in a pancake breakfast a day early.
She and a friend are headed to the orchid show on Tuesday and no pancakes at the Botanical Garden. When we were growing up, many churches had Pancake Suppers in the church basement on Shrove Tuesday *
“Mardi Gras (fat Tuesday) refers to events of beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday the beginning of Lent which is also known as Shrove Tuesday “
“….final day before the austerity of the Lenten fast, Shrove Tuesday
also has many customs pertaining to food. Pancakes are traditional in a number of European countries because eggs, sugar, and fat, commonly forbidden during the Lenten fast, are used up so they will not go to waste”
Past years I posted about the Polish pre Lenten Tradition of Paczki (click link to see the filled doughnut like treats )
*The word shrove is a form of the English word shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday was named after the custom of Christians to be “shriven” before the start of Lent.
We were headed to Kenyon College to watch my grandsons in a swim meet. Mark asked me which President graduated from Kenyon College. After a couple of bad guesses he said we shared the first four letters in our names. Then I answered correctly with that clue. How could I miss?
