    What’s Up Wednesday

    1748 Bakehouse’s sweet small grocery

    We are at week four of COVID-19 restrictions. The peak is now projected for the first week of May which means more time at home. YAY.

    Here is a random collection of things near and far to check out.

    Locally:

    Flamingo Magazine published this nice article on how Jags Kicker Josh Lambo is helping support pet adoptions through Fur Sisters.

    Hair dye is the new toilet paper (read: selling out fast) but before you buy on-line check with your hairdresser to see if they will make you an at-home kit. Prim Salon in Ponte Vedra is offering personalized kit including gloves, brush and of course instructions.

    Brighten your day or someone else’s by getting fresh flowers delivered.   Liz Stewart Flower Design is open Tuesday thru Friday and  St Johns Flower Market reopens Monday, April 20. Anita’s Flower Shop in Riverside has gorgeous plants for pick-up or delivery.

    Tired of wearing the same sweats,  Scout & Mollys and Apropo’s in Sawgrass Village both offer personalized style box drop-offs.  Or get new great loungewear delivered by Sunrise Surf Shop.

    Here is this week’s list of local beaches charities to consider donating to  Mission House,  BEAM  and Beaches Habitat.

    Cooking: 

    For those who have mastered banana bread, are done with sourdough, how about biscuits? For Easter we made sweet potato biscuits that were part of this on-line cooking club and while delish I still did something wrong. Next time I am going to try either this one by Molly Baz at Bon Appetit or this by Samin Nosrat.

    Native Sun offers curbside pick-up and delivery for both groceries and ready-made meals.

    Here are some ideas from Food Network on what to cook when you don’t feel like cooking.  Or if you really don’t want to cook, check out the menu options from TPC Sawgrass.

    What to Watch: 

    For movie lovers missing theaters, Jaime Lee Curtis is hosting Lionsgate Live starting this Friday, April 17 with Hunger Games.  For all the other days of the week here is Esquire’s guide to the best movie you can stream on Netflix. Art lovers might enjoy the Jacksonville Dance Fifth Annual Film Festival in partnership with  MOCA Jacksonville.

    In TV show land,  Karen is liking Offspring on Netflix, while I have gotten sucked into Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu and will next try Mrs. America. Those with HBO might want to check out Run.

    Sports fans have very limited options, “The Last Dance” the untold Michael Jorden 10 part documentary from ESPN should fill a small void and premieres April 19.
