It’s been almost a month since Cleanup Week left antique lovers and bargain hunters rummaging through piles of would-be garbage on the city’s curbs. Perhaps you’re one of them, excited at first by what you found, now looking at it and wondering, “What am I going to do with this thing?”
You’d think as adults we’d know better. But why is it when it comes to communicating with younger generations we sometimes just plain blow it? When they’re little, it’s easy. Ask them their favorite color or how old they are and you can get a nice conversation going, sometimes peppered with wildly off-topic comments: “My friend Aidan’s grandpa wears an eyepatch, but he’s not a pirate.”
We all know those moms and dads who go completely overboard with graduation open house party planning. When little Susie or Johnny graduates, they spare no expense to make sure her/his food is the best.
Tim Rosendahl has been awfully busy holding classes at Casey Steele’s Square One Rental Kitchens.
So when we asked the two of them to help us out by creating an extra special Cinco de Mayo meal for “The Great Indoors,” we were thrilled that they could squeeze us in.
Normally, my Thursday column is dedicated to our food/lifestyle blog “The Great Indoors.” But today I felt like doing something a little different.

There are two things in life that have made me utter the words, “I’m never doing that again.”
One of them is paintball. I still have welts from a rousing game of paintball that one “Saved-by-the-Bell” looking co-worker talked me into playing in 1989.
It happens every few years. A particular type of produce turns trendy.
Kale is the latest “it” vegetable. The dark, leafy green is full of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber and carotenoids, and that’s just the beginning.
My name is Tracy and I have a sweet tooth. Always have; probably always will. There’s nothing inherently wrong with those of us who need a little something sweet every day. (In fact, I like to think it makes us extra-sweet people.)
Is there anything good about this winter not wanting to end? An outdoor Easter egg hunt next week doesn’t look like a good idea, it’s hard to imagine we’ll be playing any rounds of golf anytime soon, and lazy days at the lake seem as far away as ever.
When you’re talking about St. Patrick’s Day cuisine most likely the staples come to mind: corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, Irish soda bread, and of course green beer. But how often do you hear about dessert?
