Easter is at my place and I am tired from grocery shopping and cleaning up my yard for the family kids egg hunt. Looking forward to Monday morning. Spiral Ham, Deviled eggs, home made ice cream is my part, not sure what others will bring.

I would not do it. However, you can put a pad lock on your stash of goodies to keep out the raiders.

For me, the local nursery has big spring bash with lectures from master gardeners, big sales and free hotdogs.

It is pleasant to smell the earthy flowers in the Hugh green house and see all those hanging flower pots from the ceiling over head.

Start April 25 where I live, maybe there is one near you :)

In my unprofessional opinion.

If just dumped, try and scoop it out. Then let it settle, stick it the fridge for tommorow. I would not stir the pot. I find some ground peppers will sink to the bottom. Then scoop it out slowly from the top into another bowl and reheat and see what happens.

But then some like it hot :)

In Michigan I never plant anything until Memorial Day weekend and the weather report shows the next ten night time tempratures above 50°.

About ten years ago an unusual late frost hit on June 4 and I lost everything.

Yea, I use the green onions and the infused oil also. I take it we have the same books :)

I just wished I had discovered the diet like forty years ago instead of one year ago.

@patrickx

Yep, I feel your pain :)
Hard boiled fresh eggs are a pain. Also it is next to impossible to dye a fresh hard boiled brown egg for Easter.

My solution is buy a dozen eggs every Easter from the local supermarket. Once a year I have some lousy eggs for eating. But they do look pretty :)

Oh.. The first recipe in the book... Garlic?
Garlic and onions are on "no"... Sigh...
But could leave them out.

Yep, I understand what she is going through... Somewhat.
I "try" and often fail at fooling a low-fodmap diet (low wheat, low sugar and low lactose).

The only sugars I use are cane sugar and real maple syrup, these are balanced sugars. My system cannot handle the fructose sugars, like beet, honey, corn syrup and especially hfcs.

Modern strains of wheat are high in Fructans, long chains of fructose molucles and bother me also.

Dairy is usually yogurt, ice cream and cheese. Lactose does bother me, however, cultures convert the lactose in yogurt. Cream and real cheese has little lactose which I seem to handle. Whole milk causes gas and bloat that becomes uncomfortable.

So I put her book on my wish list. Looks like my kind of lifestyle.

Picture #1 food processor on top shelf?
And Picture # 13 Stand Mixer on top shelf?

I am like some others here and not a fan of open selves.
My seasonal canning equipment and empty jars are stored in the basement until I need them.

One more thing, does she use a pressure canner or does she pickle those vegetables?

Curious minds want to know :)
