Too Many Chefs post of the week

Read for me these posts of three 'ere the other side you'll see. What is your name? What is your quest? What is the perfect recipe for Easter?

The answers come this week from three diverse blogs:

A. Start with breakfast and Jimmy's Shortbread Waffles from Orangette. Ingredients - butter, sugar, sugar, butter, eggs, sugar, flour, butter, lemon juice, butter, sugar, and maple syrup. Wow.

1. A midday snack can be had if you follow a recipe from Delicious! Delicious! for bierocks, a bun filled with meat and cabbage I had never heard of before. Surprising, since I found a description of bierocks as "A characteristic and portable food of the Volga Germans on the American plains..." My Lutheran ancestors ate these and didn't tell me about it? Of course, I'm not sure Minnesota counts as the plains. More tundra-like, really.

I. Forget ham, forget lamb, forget spam and quince jam. Instead try some stinging nettle frittata from spicetart. A plant that cause welts that then fills you up and makes your tummy happy? Maybe next week we'll work on that poison ivy ice cream, but for now-

Ta ta.

That's scary. I think I'll take the poison ivy ice cream before I eat the nettles. I prefer my medicine in bottles.

The waffles, on the other hand... Those get made tomorrow. Mmmm. Waffle runoff.

Sorry to have to run, but I have to go cut the thorns from my rose bushes and grind them up to put them on my peanut butter sandwich.
