Our current favorite band excels at face-melting bluegrass music.  But it turns out mandolin player Jeff Austin is also quite accomplished in the kitchen.  We should have known when we saw them last summer they talked about the great restaurant down the street from the venue.  A restaurant a friend had recomended to me and we passed up.  Just think!  We could have dined with the band!

Great interview on Epicurean Musician.

The recent cold weather in Florida has caused a major shortage of tomatoes in the rest of the country.   This has caused some fast food restaurants to stop using tomatoes in their food unless specifically asked to.  Not that this is a bad thing based on how bad those tomatoes usually are.

On the bright side, I’ve ordered my seedlings rather than starting seeds this year.  With so many varities available as live plants it seemed like too much trouble to start my own.  But the snow had better melt soon as I asked for a “first half of April” delivery.

What was I thinking?
