Continuing the monthly tradition, The Speckled Palate’s The Potluck: April 2020 includes a skincare item, a TV show, books and more. Come check out my list and tell me what was on yours for the month of April.
All right. So last month, I wrote about how March was the longest month of the year so far, and that, obviously has been replaced by April.
I will say that we seemed to settle into our new “normal” routine last month, and we started rolling with the punches better. (It should come as no surprise that I was the member of our family who struggled the most with our massive change to routine because I am the biggest creature of habit.)
Once again, there were wonderful things that occurred in April. Here are a few of ’em:
- We started baking all the sourdough recipes in earnest. My pal, Jenni from The Gingered Whisk, has 60+ sourdough recipes, so we’ve been working our way through them and are currently taking her Simple Sourdough course, too, to learn more and feel more confident about Penelope, our starter.
- We saw friends for socially distant happy hours. We are fortunate enough to be able to work from home and to not have to leave our house, save for groceries and walks around our neighborhood, so we took great joy in setting up lawn chairs in our yard and catching up with friends at a safe distance.
- Easter, while strange and different than any other year we’ve ever celebrated, was still a lot of fun. The Easter Bunny still came to visit us. The girls still had a blast. And we ate some good, albeit different food, with our family as we had a video dinner call with them to mark the occasion.
Yes, April was still strange, but here we are. And I wanted to share some things I enjoyed last month in my monthly Potluck!
To recap, my potluck, as defined by the folks at Merriam-Webster is:
the regular meal available to a guest for whom no special preparations have been made… a communal meal to which people bring food to share —usually used attributively <a potluck supper>; whatever is offered or available in given circumstances or at a given time.
