*  Mmmmmmmmm.  Guinness Cake.  Yesterday we made Guinness cake for today.   So.  Funny story.  At least it is funny now.  It wasn't yesterday.  Yesterday morning I fed the sourdough starter to make sourdough biscuits for dinner.  I covered the bowl with plastic wrap and placed it in the oven.  I"m not sure why except that is where I put all of my doughs to rest or rise.  Except I turned on the oven to bake the Guinness cake.  The plastic wrap melted all over the bowl and into the starter.  The starter baked into the bowl.  Maybe I'm not meant to be baking with sourdough...

*  My parents dug up and thinned their rhubarb plant.  They had 20 little rhubarb plants and they brought them to my house!  I already have a ginormous rhubarb plant that probably needs to be thinned as well.  I posted on Facebook and got a few hits.  But then I posted it on Nextdoor.com and it got cleaned out within a few hours.  It's pretty hardy stock, it was in their backyard when they bought their house.  My parents bought their house 20 years ago and they bought the house from the estate of the people who built the house.  It was funny how excited people were to get rhubarb.   Apparently I've been taking it for granted!

Happy St. Patricks Day my friends.  Be safe!
