Spring Has Sprung

April 22, 2007 at 9:11 pm 3 comments

And everything is growing so beautifully. We’ve started seeing all the bounty of spring at our local farmers’ markets. Saturday there were English peas and garlic greens and we made a salad tonight of ‘little gems’ lettuce and arugula. We grilled lamb and served it with my homemade ‘rice a roni’ which Zannie says is really rice and pasta and “…so we should call it rasta”. For dessert, we made a giant, sweet biscuit and slathered on whipped cream and beautiful, local strawberries. It was all delicious. We each ate a slice and then quickly scurried over to the neighbors and gave them the rest.

So, without further ado, here is evidence of our feast and bonus material too! One picture of my African Violet which has gone crazy this year.
