With all this Spring weather it is really hard to commit myself to blogging!
This weekend couldn’t have been more springlike as we sprung forward into daylight savings time – meaning extended afternoon dog walks and the beginning of al fresco meals. The first of many tulips opened up in the backyard – a hue of purple and pink (a little like the color on the salmon I grilled on Sunday night).
Over the weekend, I enjoyed casual meals with friends – including a French themed potluck at my friends Masha and Aaron’s house with my new friend (and excellent cook) Adrienne. We enjoyed homemade crepes, an onion tart, a variety of vegetables from beets to haricot vert and homemade beignets! What a joy to share such fun food!
I finished off my weekend grilling lemon and fresh oregano marinated salmon to top a homemade cesar salad with freshly baked croutons – accompanied by a mixture of iced red zinger tea and apple juice. A quiet night cooking on my own (dog by my side) in a warm and blooming backyard…my “Sunday Kind of Love.”
