Spring Specials

It’s above  degrees and the grass is green – here in Minnesota!  Usually we’re buried under snow, or there is at least a grey, frozen thing going on with melting piles of dirty snow.  When it’s this warm, it’s spring, whether it happens in March or May.

Another sign of spring?  Asparagus shows up at the grocery store!  Artichokes follow.  Best of all, they become reasonably priced.

We feel, too, like going outside more.  People drive crazy, with loud radio and much singing.  Wearing sunglasses.

And most of all, my menus lighten up.  Funny thing is, I always wish this time of year I had made more stews and braises over the long winters, but there’s always next year, right?
