Our friend Ben, Silence Dogood, and Richard Saunders have decided to revive our weekly posting of blog topics for the past week here at Poor Richard’s Almanac. We think it’s a useful feature (and frankly can’t remember why we stopped doing it), since folks who may not have checked in with us for a few days (gasp!) can simply scan the week’s post synopses below and see if they’ve missed anything worth reading. To find a post that interests you, simply scroll on down or type in the post title in our search bar at upper right. Look for this feature every Sunday, and enjoy!
Here’s an overview of the past week’s posts:
A satisfying stir-fry. Silence discovers that chili oil isn’t scalding hot, as she’d always assumed, but instead imparts a wonderful smoky flavor to food. She shares a stir-fry recipe she made up to showcase this delicious oil.
The perfect dog. After reading a description of the ideal German shepherd, Silence and OFB couldn’t resist sharing it and revealing how our own black German shepherd, Pioneer Hawk’s Haven Shiloh von Shiloh Special, measures up.
The perfect storm. Silence, not generally a fan of snow, manages to find ways to enjoy our first significant snowfall of the season.
Oh, please. When Silence discovers a PR flak billing herself as a “food concept architect,” she goes ballistic.
Where are the parks quarters? Self-described “chump-change coin collector” Richard Saunders laments the paucity of National Parks quarters in pocket change.
Knitting up some tinsel magic. Silence shares how finding some glittery yarn can keep the Christmas spirit alive.
Chili and cornbread: hot food for cold nights. Quick, easy recipes for yummy chili and cornbread.
That’s it for this week! Tune in tomorrow for a very special post.
