I borrowed the Redwall cookbook on interlibrary loan, and I've already cooked two things from it, and they were DELICIOUS, and all the creatures of the forest loved them! One dish was a kind of potato-leek soup, but with curry spices and shrimp in it--this one the creatures of the forest requested first off, so it's not surprising that it was a hit. But the next one was a mashed root dish, that included *turnips* and everyone liked that, too! Even the smallest forest creatures ate all of it!

The cookbook has really great illustrations. I will order it from the Odyssey Bookstore, if they don't have it in stock. Normally I'd just buy it on Amazon, but this is a bow to supporting local businesses. Plus, it was at Odyssey that we heard Brian Jacques, the author of the Redwall books, give a reading, maybe two years ago now? Maybe just one year. He was fantastic. What a friendly guy. All the children's authors I come in contact with are wonderful people.

A great thing about the cookbook is that it does contain lots of recipes that use root vegetables, and I love finding ways to make them interesting and fun to eat. **I can't believe everyone ate turnips** what's next? Parsnips? Actually, of course, Little Springtime likes parsnips, but she and I are the only ones.

It also contains a lot of delicious-sounding berry crumble dishes, yum.

On another topic, the sky today looks like a snow avalanche.

I've seen an animated Redwall on PBS. we don't really watch it much
because i think that the content is a little too scary for Julie.
Those dishes sound yummy.
I'm also pretty shocked about the turnips!
But don't push it with trying parsnips.
Dave won't even eat those, I've tried! (too mushy apparently!)
