Continuing the monthly tradition, The Speckled Palate’s The Potluck: March 2020 includes a few pairs of shoes, beauty items, a TV show and more. Come check out my list and tell me what was on yours for the month of March.
Man. March. Maaaaaaaaaaarch. Otherwise known as the second longest month of the year.
Worldwide events made March one of the more interesting months in recent memory, though not in a good way. We began sheltering-in-place officially the week after spring break, but since we didn’t go anywhere or do anything during spring break, we kicked off the fun early and have been staying home ever since.
There were some bright points in March, though. Here are a few:
- We celebrated said 5-year-old’s fifth birthday by throwing a joint party with one of her sweet school friends. It was SO MUCH FUN, and there were ponies, a bounce house and all the outdoor things to do. We also consumed our traditional Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars AND the prettiest unicorn layer cake, decorated by her friend’s grandmother.
- My mom and her husband came to celebrate A’s birthday, which was amazing. It was also the weekend before everything started to hit the fan here in the U.S., which was fortunate since we haven’t been able to see any family members since.
- We’ve been getting outside a TON, walking and riding our bikes. We even pulled out the wagon a few days AND blew up an inflatable watermelon pool that was purchased last year but never used. I’m all for finding things for us to do while we aren’t cooped up indoors.
So. You know, it’s not all bad, though March 2020 will definitely go down in history as one of the strangest months we’ve ever experienced.
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.
