The Old Farmer's Almanac

I was looking at the Calendar facts for today and saw a note that today in 2008 marked also the passing of author and illustrator Tasha Tudor.

Over in the Gardening Forum, Larry started a thread on wild ducks on his pond, which managed to wind up being a thread on duck edibles.

Now in my pre-tomboy years, I was given several Tasha Tudor books ... still have them as treasures.

She wrote a cookbook, with a recipe for Stuffed Eggs and makes mention of several non-traditional eggs to use (which reminded me of the duck edibles thread ... yeh I know I'm wandering around a bit).

If anyone would like, these books are still available, and they are still delightful.

By the time my tomboy years hit, this was just too fussy for me ... little did I know Tasha was a hardcore old fashioned farming woman!
