This is a big week. Not only is March Madness beginning (yes, I’m a huge basketball fan- Go B1G!) but tomorrow is St. Paddy’s Day & Wednesday is National Ag Day. I’m celebrating all three by combining several different food groups in this loaded manicotti recipe. My husband loves Italian food, but he often struggles to eat his greens. So, I created this recipe in order to get the best of both worlds.
Actually, he didn’t even realize that I was being sneaky sneaks about the spinach. It was very scandalous when I revealed the truth! I’m pretty lucky to be married to a guy that doesn’t mind my experiments in the kitchen.
And speaking of luck, aren’t we lucky to have farmers that grow the food we eat everyday? I hope this week you’ll take time to reach out to a farmer or others who work in Agriculture and thank them. If you don’t know a farmer or producer, take time to share a thought on social media about how appreciative you are for what they do.
This weekend I also discovered meerkat app. Have you heard of it? It allows you to stream video of whatever you’re doing. So this weekend I was able to livestream a recipe demo from my kitchen. It was pretty cool to see 19 folks jumping on to view the recipe I was making. The app definitely has some issues, but I’m thinking this could be a really cool way to show people what I’m stirring up in the kitchen. It might also be a great way to take a virtual farm tour. I am hoping that some of my friends who farm will consider experimenting with this idea on National Ag Day? We will have to wait and see.
