If you would like to share a pancake creation you "threw" together this week, please feel free to include the link in the comments section. Night Owl Chef, that means you too!!!

FYI: The first machine for the manufacturing of toothpicks, was patented on February 20, 1872, by Silas Noble and J.P. Cooley, of Granville, Massachusetts. (cake tester anyone?)
Ruth Miriam Siems, creator of Stove Top Stuffing, was born today in 1931.
Today is National Cherry Pie Day and, the month of February is still National Cherry Month!!!

It didn't take much coaxing from Jane for me to share the surprise bloom I received on watering day this week. I admit, her Orange Polenta Cake with Sweet Citrus Glaze may have persuaded me just a wee bit. I'm thinking this scented geranium is beckoning spring...

The rest of the mud room, which I am temporarily using as a plant room until I get my new planting shed in the spring. A delightful Amish man and his 5 sons are building it for me "as we speak."

Tomorrow is National Sticky Bun Day & Clam Chowder Day. I hope to see you all on Tuesday:) just in time for National Dog Biscuit Day!!!
