The ants are back
Along with the floods I now have a plague of locusts.
OK, not locusts exactly, but those little ants have invaded my kitchen again. I don't understand why all winter they stay away (do ants hibernate in the winter?), but then when it gets warm they come inside. Maybe it's the rain.
Before I leave for Savannah this afternoon, I'm going to toss all my lofty, high-minded, green eco-principles out the window and buy the most virulent ant poison I can find and spray all over my kitchen counters, sills, inside my dishwasher, the cabinets the floor, the ceiling. Then when I come back I'm going to enjoy sweeping all those little carcasses up and throwing them in the trash. ...
Of course, my husband won't appreciate that; but, hey, how much cooking does he actually do when I'm away?
When I made these travel plans this winter, I hesitated. Did I really want to leave Baltimore in the most beautiful month of year? The answer after looking at the weather forecast is, I find, a resounding yes.
Forecast for Savannah? Mostly sunny, highs in the 80s. Chance of an afternoon thunderstorm.
My kind of weather.
Remember, I won't abandon you. I'm taking my trusty laptop, and if anything interesting happens foodwise in Savannah, I'll tell you about it. Otherwise we'll be talking about Baltimore and more general food and drink topics.But not about the ants.
