After a long creamy, cheesy, stewy Winter hiatus, Salmon Saturday is back.
If you’re like me, I can feel myself moving away from Winter comfort foods and shifting towards lighter fresher meals. Even with a brand new layer of a snow on the ground this morning.
A quick moving storm rolled through town last night leaving us with a heavy white blanket of fresh snow.
But even this snow has a Spring feel to it. The dry powdery Ivory Snow Flakes we see from the frigid temperatures of Winter has now arrived as a much heavier product. Our grassy areas are soaking up the moisture and the sidewalks, streets and gutters are running full with slush and water.
This was taken out our bedroom window early this morning. The sun will soon rise, this snow will melt by midday and my little crocus bulbs will have pushed stems closer to the surface of the ground to produce the first blooms of spring. Cue the Robins please.
