Am I Crazy? Maybe! I figure that this is a question that we have all asked ourselves (or been asked!) at some point. At this point, I think it is more entertaining to be crazy than to try and blend in with the "IN" crowd. I've never been one to be "Normal". After all, WHAT is normal these days???

Late spring is a terrible time for seasonal food. The pantry full of canned goods and dry goods is running low, and the littlest of seedlings are just beginning to poke out of the ground.
