I’m happy to report, that as the first week of March has inched on, the month is taking on a much more lamb-like demeanor: blue skies, temperatures cracking 60 (!) Degrees, and even a few buds bravely sprouting up in the garden plots that line the Loop. I’ve never run a marathon, nor do I care to, but I imagine that March is quite similar to “hitting the wall” near the end of the race.

Finally, since ranch is pretty much good with anything it only seemed natural to pair these savory, fried treats with a quick and easy homemade ranch sauce. Directions: 1.
