Wild Card 2019 - Countdown to 2020


It's time to end the retrospective.   2019 is now the past and it's time to look towards the future.

2020 is here.

 I had a hard time picking out My Wild Card for the year past.  I have to say that this sandwich did it for us.  I'm not too sure just how many times I've made them now.  But they're always well received.
As in our new favorite sandwich,  these Schlotzky Style Sandwiches are sooo good.

You can check out the full recipe and how to make them here,   Schlotzky Style Sourdough Sandwiches.  

 I'd like to say Thank You to Sarah of Fantastical Sharing for giving me an excuse to look back at 2019  and picking out what I thought was the best of the year.

Countdown to 2020 

I had several things I made last year, lots of cakes, for the American Legion Cake Raffle, every other week in fact. But I don't want to bore you with them. 

This past year was also notable in that a dear friend passed away, she was in many respects a mentor to me, a true Wise Woman. Harriett Beach was a force of nature, a wonderful cook, an amazing storyteller, a talented potter and will be missed by many.  I wrote a little bit about her here.
This is one of her pots, and was a centerpiece at the dinner.

We had a little memorial to her after her passing, and I made some Dolmades in her memory, as she loved Greek food, and I think she would have loved them.

I published my third cookbook called Simple Shrimp Recipes, and am working on a revamp of my Danish Cookbook, hopefully it will roll out before the end of the year.

I entered a cooking contest sponsored by Healthy Solutions, and came in third, tying with a couple of other people.  That was fun.  I made a Cape Cod Slider

and it was good.

And there you have it, a look back, a tease and so looking forward to this New Year.  Hoping it's your best and brightest yet.
