Spring is tomorrow and with all the recent rains, it’s going to be an amazing time of year. When spring arrives menus change subtly as we ease into warmer weather. Delicate greens like lettuces, spring onions, leeks and peas begin to peek their heads and show up on farmer’s market tables in most cities. You will quickly notice how the colorful vegetables and fruits will create one of the best seasons yet.
This week we’re kicking things off with my Instant Pot Creamy Goat Cheese Cavatappi with Asparagus and Ham. It’ so easy to prepare and perfect on a Monday night. Tuesday are usually for tacos, but you probably have some leftover corned beef, which is perfect to transform into my Corned Beef and Honey Mustard Slaw Sliders. These tasty little treats are easy to put together in minutes. Hump Day means it’s time to make something special to get you through the rest of the week, and my Thai Turkey Noodles are an Asian inspiration. Thursday night is definitely salad time and this Butter Lettuce Flower is not only made with springtime ingredients, but it’s pretty tasty too. TGIF and let’s celebrate the upcoming flower season with this delicate drink – my Rose Martini. Saturday’s are for baking and it’s the beginning of spring break season and my Spring Break Brownies will put you in that vacation sort of mood. Have a tasty week — Yay spring!
