March in Michigan is blah. What snow is left is dirty. The new snow that comes down soon becomes slush and mud. Outdoor color is hard to find, which is why Michiganders get excited about the little snowdrops that are the first thing to pop up out of the garden.
Boyfriend Jay is doing what all Michiganders want to do in March. He is traveling to a warmer climate. While eating his way across the country to Arizona, he and traveling companion (his) daughter Joni stopped at Cattlemen's Restaurant in Oklahoma City for some Lamb Fries.
From a review: "Lamb Fries are testicles that are sliced, breaded, and deep fried. Gonads are a highly-regarded delicacy in much of the West. When young livestock is castrated on the range, it is traditional for cowboys to fry their harvest as a treat at the end of the day. Like much deep-fried food, it's breading that's the keynote flavor. The organ meat inside is moist and slightly sweet."
According to Joni, eating Lamb Fries makes Jay a "real cowboy".
Jay and I are keeping in touch on Facebook and texting. On Facebook he posted this picture of his "favorite street" in Gallup, New Mexico.
If you can't read the street sign, click on the picture to make it bigger.
Jay's daughter Joni asked if I had ever heard of Polish Pottery. I hadn't. When I Googled it, I found many pieces of beauty, the one in the picture below being my favorite.
Boleslawiec pottery is the collective term for pottery produced in Boleslawiec, Poland. Boleslawiec Pottery is also known as Polish Pottery or Polish Stoneware.
Need to find out more about this. It's totally beautiful, especially the nature pieces.
