Finally Winter, KCC #62, Shvat Sameach!

We're a few years behind in the rain department, so even when we have a month of "average rainfall" it's far from enough.  We're already into the Jewish Month of Shvat when we're supposed to start enjoying the new fruits.  I don't know how fertile the orchards are this year, since winter started very late.  But we do have an extra month, Adar B, so G-d willing by Pesach, we'll have fruit and rain.

Yes, this is the sixty-second Kosher Cooking Carnival.  That's quite amazing by my reckonning.  I had no idea that my "revenge" against a recipe carnival that had rejected my recipe one month, because their theme was ham, would be such a success.
See how KCC has grown!

Leora said...

Ah, another Leora! Great job, Batya.

I tried to submit this month, but alas, I was too late. Well, I suppose Mrs. S. has a first post for her KCC.

Batya said...

Leora, you have a few posts in.

Jennifer in MamaLand said...

Thanks; nice job! I didn't realize I submitted so much... (embarrassed)

Batya said...

Jennifer, as long as they fit the criteria, no problem. I have to delete many people send. It's very annoying.

Anonymous said...

So that's the reason why KCC started, I never knew!

Good job!
