This is really an Eat Arkansas entry, but ...

It's Sopranos finale night, not to mention my 57th birthday today. Ellen cooked the fine spice cake you see here with cream cheese/pecan icing.

I made "Ah-beetz" from the Sopranos cookbooke. (Yes, I know. We said it would be baked ziti. Ellen made baked ziti. But we froze it for later in the week. You want the recipe? Let me know and I'll put it on Eat Arkansas. Best baked ziti in the world.)

But behold "Ah-beetz." It's another way of saying Apizza. And it's a thick-crust pizza in the argot of New England Italians.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
