McLeod's Daughters Drinking Game

McLeod's Daughters Drinking GameYou know I like to knit and spin wool and other fibers.  So someone turned me on to this Australian show about women who run a sheep and cattle ranch. The show is completely addictive and now on Netflix.   Even my husband watches it, but won't admit it. This game will keep you entertained long after the feasibility of the plots expire. (Spoiler alert! If you haven't made it through the end of season 3, do not read this!)

How to Make King Cake (and What Is It?)

King cake season is from January 6th (the Catholic holiday called the Epiphany or Three Kings Day) and goes until the start of lent. This festive sweet bread traditionally has a plastic baby baked inside (which represents the baby Jesus). The legend changes depending on who you ask, but some versions are: whoever finds the baby has to buy the next king cake; host the next party; has good luck. Either way, you'll be lucky to eat this traditional Cajun sweet bread!
