Friday Potluck #25!

Welcome to FRIDAY POTLUCK!!!

There haven’t been many posts this week, as in NO posts this week. This former Alaska girl, newly transplanted back home, encountered a nasty Alaska-sized cold this week and couldn’t measure up. That’s it, I admitted at least a temporary defeat to a cold.

What did this mean? The two years spent Outside…
(Here’s a little lesson in Alaska vernacular: Outside means anywhere Outside of Alaska… could be the Lower 48, a different country, or a different continent. Consider Outside to be your word of the day.)

The two years Outside (in Colorado) have made me into a winter time wimp. I spent the last two winters shaking in my fashionable boots that the temperature might dip into the 20s, whereas now I can barely contain myself that next week we might get into the 30s on a regular basis. It’s a sick and twisted mentality and the irony is NOT lost on me. I find myself pining away for 60 degree weather with a fervor that I had, until this point, thought impossible. Whoops.

Once again, I’m behind in reading everyone’s blogs, so I very much look forward to what you have to post this week. I also apologize in advance for the poor quality of any photos I post of the bounty of amazing veggie-inspired dishes this weekend. I cannot locate my camera battery charger… and need to!

  4. I know exactly how you feel about the temperatures (well, almost, as I’ve never been to Alaska!). I grew up in Canada with seriously hot summers and incredibly cold winters. I have to laugh at myself now I’ve lived in England for 20+ years though because if it dips below zero, I’m like, wow, this is SO cold but it’s nothing compared to the – 20 degrees plus they get in Canada! And when we do go back to Canada in winter I shake in my fashionable boots too!!

    I’ve brought a (slightly Canadian themed) maple glazed chicken recipe today. Thank you so much for hosting!
