Pink Saturday and it’s Winter again!

by Michelle on March 28, 2009

We’ve been having some really nice spring weather, still cool but beautiful sunny days. Last year we had a final Winter Blizzard on March 29th and it looks like this year it’s going to be about the same. The temperature is dropping like a stone and snow and sleet are expected. I really don’t mind winter, in fact I enjoy it. But once a season starts changing I’d just as soon get on with the new and put the old behind me.

This is my 3rd Pink Saturday and so far I have so much fun. I so enjoy looking at all the pink blogs and the items chosen to share each week. As always Pink Saturday is hosted by Miss Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

My first photo is a glimpse of summer with my Zesty Red Onion Jelly. The jelly is a condiment that my husband just loves on just about anything. I sat it on our porch railing and it made the most gorgeous photo in fact I won a contest with this very photo.

More on Zesty Red Onion Jelly….

I love the graceful lines and the intertwining shapes of Flamingos and I have many of them scattered throughout my home. My Flamingos range from 21″ tall to about 5″ tall. These are 2 of my medium-sized Flamingos, about 12″ tall, and they are standing in a ceramic pond.

I keep a bulletin board in my office and glanced at it the other day and this one post-it caught my eye.

From various sources: Injera (Tigrinya, pronounced [ɨndʒǝra], sometimes transliterated enjera); A pancake-like bread made out of teff flour. It is traditionally eaten in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia (where it is also called laxoox and canjeero), Yemen, and by the Nuer people of Sudan. Injera is made with teff, a tiny, round grain that flourishes in the highlands of Ethiopia. While teff is very nutritious, it contains practically no gluten. This makes teff ill-suited for making raised bread, however injera still takes advantage of the special properties of yeast. A short period of fermentation gives it an airy, bubbly texture, and also a slightly sour taste.

    That jelly looks great! I am going to have to try and do some canning. Have not done it in may years.I have a flamingo fetish too, but goofy things like funky jewelry. I was almost voted out of my yuppie neighborhood 7 years ago because I had plastic ones in the front of the house. I no longer live there 😉You take care with that bad weather.Libby(buffalobaker on twitter)
