Good for your Garden: Compost

…something for #Mountainair's home & #communitygarden/ers & local growers, especially in the conspicuous absence of either art council as information manager for new community garden consortium or local farmers market updating information or refreshing online content. Normally, Claunch-Pinto SWCD and Torrance County Extension pick up that slack, but the very popular gardening workshop series are on temporary hiatus until Gene Wynn recovers from recent surgery. 

After starting a Community Garden playlist and subscribing to gardening channels, I then forgot to add videos to the playlist. I now stand reminded and have just added more videos, subscribed to more channels...

Ice Cream Bread

…from my friends & fellow cyber gourmands at Coursera CafĂ©

Ice Cream Bread
adapted by Cooking with Libby
2 cups of your favorite ice cream, softened
1 and 1/2 cups of self rising flour
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour an 8×4 inch loaf pan.
Mix the ice cream and flour together in a bowl just until combined.  Smooth it out so it looks even.  Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool for a while and then serve.
Recipe Tip:  For best results, use full-fat ice cream.
It should also be noted that some flavors of bread will come out stronger tasting then others.  For a bolder and not so plain flavor…it is recommended to go with bold flavors of ice cream such as peanut butter or butter pecan.  Don’t forget, you can also add extra ingredients into the mix to make it less plain and more flavorful.  Experiment and have fun with it!

From BlogHer: Food Bloggers & Best Food Writing

…not to be confused with Everybody Eats, which is more of a curation project and eclectic compendium. It all started with a few feeds in the reader, mostly related to local food sustainability, community gardens, and links to share to a friend's food page on Fb. She lost interest and canned the page. So there I was with all these food feeds and no place to send them...
