On this day in History.....
On March 12, 1930, Mahatma Gandhi led a march from Gujarat, India, to Dandi, on the coast of the Arabian Sea, to protest the British raj’s salt tax and economic monopoly. By using satyagraha (“truth power”) and ahimsa (“nonviolence”), he brought international attention to the Indian anticolonial movement and introduced future civil right leaders to the concept of civil disobedience.
And now you know.

"Dissents speak to a future age. It's not simply to say, 'My colleagues are wrong and I would do it this way.' But the greatest dissents do become court opinions and gradually over time their views become the dominant view. So that's the dissenter's hope: that they are writing not for today, but for tomorrow."
~Ruth Bader Ginsberg

She contributed so much. May we all be inspired by that.

SUPPORT OUR SENIORS!!!
If you can be there today, standing and waving, or parking and honking, please do!
They have put together a special surprise for all of you today, Monday, that we are very excited about. They have worked closely with their partners in the community to do a staff car parade route through a few neighborhoods in Suttons Bay! The parade will begin around 3 PM, and they are excited to see all of your smiling faces. They will do the route on map one first, and then start the route on map two. Please remember to stay safe and maintain proper social distancing as they drive by.❤️

Since we're on the topic of gardening and planting, at least I am!, keep these flowers in mind as they are edibles and add to any salad, omelette, or plate that little bit of savoir faire that makes everything a little bit more special. And we are all....very special.

"When the world wearies and society fails to satisfy, there is always the garden."
~Minnie Aumonier

Are you as anxious as I am to get out in the garden, feel that warm earth in your hands and start growing things? I can already see the lavender that we grow being used to cook shortbread or to rub on lamb chops and I can also see the pestos that we'll be making with the herbs. It's coming---growing season in Michigan!

What's on your menu this Easter Sunday? Will it be lamb shoulder, like at our house? This year posed a bit of a challenge but planning ahead---way ahead---meant we had a boneless lamb shoulder to roast today. The way we prepare it is pretty simple, which is a wonderful reasons to love a recipe. It also bears mentioning that we make one large enough so that we have leftovers for Shepherds Pie and sandwiches later. Planning, planning, always planning for deliciousness.

I think the first thing I'm going to make once we're able to see folks in the flesh and in our homes, will be this Potato Torte. It easily can feed 8, perhaps more, and it is so rich tasting that you'll need a great cup of coffee to go with it. Here's the recipe:
Potato Torte
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 ½ # starchy potatoes, such as Yukon Gold
4 T. unsalted butter, plus 1 ½ T. for the dish, plus another 1 ½ T. for the top, melted
2/3 c freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 c. milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
½ # smoked mozzarella cheese, cut into pea-sized cubes
¼ # salami, preferably sopresso, chopped
3 T. shopped flat-leaf parsley
¼ # fresh mozzarella cheese, such as bocconcini, thickly sliced (bucconcini just refers to the size of the mozzarella ball)
1 c. fluffy breadcrumbs (recipe follows)

Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain and when cool enough to handle, peel them and mash in a large bowl. First stir in 4 T. butter and the parmesan, then add the milk, eggs, smoked mozzarella, salami and parsley. Stir well ands season with salt and pepper.

Use 1 ½ T. softened butter to grease a pie or gratin dish, or a 9-inch springform pan. Spoon half the potato mixture into the dish and level the top. Cover with the fresh mozzarella slices, then top with the remaining potato mixture. Combine the breadcrumbs in a bowl with the melted butter and mix well with your hands. Sprinkle over the top.

Bake until the top is golden and crunchy and the filling is hot and bubbly, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand 20 minutes before releasing the sides of the springform pan. Serve on a platter, or straight from the dish if you used a pie dish or a gratin dish.

Fluffy Breadcrumbs

Use stale bread (2 – 3 days old and not a processed bread) and cut off the crust. Cut the bread into 2-inch pieces. Pulse in a processor until you have fluffy breadcrumbs. You can freeze these for up to 6 months. I keep a bag in my freezer all the time 

Remember us? We're back in the kitchen doing fun things! For those of you who asked, and for those of you who didn't know you could (because we've been gone from this page so long, remember?), here's the very easy, No-Knead Bread Recipe. Right now yeast is in short supply so one of the best things about this recipe is that it only uses a small amount of yeast but yields a BIG flavor.

No-Knead Bread

Very easy to make as it rises slowly over a long period of time. Then it is baked in a preheated covered cast-iron pot (2 ¾ quart) which helps produce a crispy, bakery-style crust on the finished loaf. Nearly fool-proof! Variations are at the end of the recipe.

Ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. active dry yeast (not quick rise)
1 ¾ tsp. salt
Cornmeal as needed

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and salt. Add 1 5/8 cups of water (warm) and blend; the dough will be shaggy and very sticky. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let the dough warm at room temperature until the surface is dotted with bubbles, 12 – 18 hours.

Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface. Sprinkle the dough with a little flour and fold the dough over onto itself once or twice. Cover the dough loosely with plastic wrap and let rest for 15 minutes.

Using just enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to the work surface or your fingers, quickly shape the dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton towel, preferably a flour sack or terry cloth, with cornmeal. Put the dough, seam side down, on the towel and dust with more cornmeal. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise until the dough is more than double in size and does not readily spring back when poked with a finger, about 2 hours (no longer or it rises too much!).

At least 30 minutes before the dough is ready, put the 2 ¾ quart cast-iron pot in the oven and set the oven to 450 degrees F.

Carefully remove the pot from the oven. Slide your hand under the towel and turn the dough seam side up, into the pot; it may look like a mess, but that is OK. Shake the pan once or twice if the dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes. Bake the bread uncovered for 15 minutes and then put the cover on it. Bake for 20 minutes more.

Transfer the pot to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Using oven mitts, turn the pot on its side and gently remove the bread; it will release easily. Makes one 1 1/2 –lb. loaf.

Variations:

Rosemary-Lemon Bread: just add 2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary and 2 tsp. chopped lemon zest to the first three ingredients.

Parmesan-Black Pepper Bread: just add 2 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper, ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and ½ cup Pecorino cheese chunks (1/4 inch chunks) to the first three ingredients.

Walnut Bread: just add 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts to the first three ingredients.

Olive Bread: just add 1/3 cup pitted nicoise olives, 1/3 cup pitted dry-cured olives and 1/3 cup of picholine olives, all coarsely chopped and add to the first three ingredients.

Cheesey-Garlic Bread: just add to the Parmesan-Black Pepper Bread recipe 2 tsp. garlic powder and 1/8 cup of finely chopped garlic.

Cheesey/Rosemary: just add 2 t. chopped fresh rosemary, ½ c. grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, ½ c. grate Pecorino cheese, ½ c. Kraft parmesan cheese

Try your own variations. I do and haven’t had a complaint yet. 

POETRY SLAM TIME AGAIN!!!! We’ll be here this Sunday @ 5:00, ready to sling pithy verses of charm, wit and thoughtfulness out to the universe once again with Larry Mawby and friends so come join us with what you’ve written, what you love, or just to listen! Bay Books will open at 3:00 that day for those who might need a poetry book or two prior to the verbal festivities. 📚😊 Also notice that we keep re-using our very first poster announcing the poetry slam because we thought it looked charming and a little bohemian.

Well now, this is interesting!
We will, indeed, be closed during these dates as we travel with the Roaming Readers Book Club to Quebec, Montreal, Halifax, and Cape Breton. This book club, held at Bay Books, was sponsored by @marthasleelanautable as part of her latest adventure with food and history! We read and discussed John Bacon’s book “The Halifax Explosion” and were awed by the actual historical event as well as the many acts of valor. This book will make our visit there even more meaningful. If you have serious book needs, we’ll be open today until 6:00. As for me, I am still deciding which books to bring with me. Then I’ll pack my clothes! ❤️📚❤️😊 #baybooksmi #suttonsbay #booksbeforeanything #ilovebooks

Jimmy Quinn! Jimmy Quinn! He's here! He's here! Well, not Jimmy Quinn actually but the author of this book, Richard VanDeWeghe at 4:00 today to answer questions and sign books. His 1st novel in the Traverse City State Hospital series, while an exciting mystery, is also a commentary on mental illness/depression and how we deal with it and how we can BETTER deal with those who suffer. In fact, that's my first question for Mr. VanDeWegne "Did he know he was writing in a manner that would not only poke at our consciousness but also give us thoughts on how to better be aware of those who suffer? And of course, there's Jimmy Quinn, who taught the protagonist so many lessons on being more aware of those we marginalize in our society without even knowing it. Well done, Mr. VanDeWeghe. 😊📚#baybookstore #suttonsbay #baybooks #suttonsbaymichigan #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #richardvandeweghe #jimmyquinn #baybooksmi

This year I was once again asked to read the Declaration of Independence, as originally written, in front of our Post Office at 10:00. This is a reading that will be done in front of all the Post Offices on our peninsula and organized three years ago by a very patriotic local man. It's an amazing experience and I feel so honored to have been asked again and to be able to do so. Happy Fourth of July and may God Bless America. 🇺🇸🦅🗽❤️
