Spring Recipes

Happy First Day of Spring from sunny, Minneapolis!  It’s a balmy 18 degrees, with a cool breeze making it feel -7, UGH!  Everyone I know is itching for it to warm up.  It’s just been too long since we’ve seen anything green.  I rounded up a few spring recipes to send out some warm vibes and encourage spring to hurry up and get here.

**also note, this is kind of a random meal but I wish this was all fresh and available right now**

We’ll start things off with a refreshing drink from the ladies of Spoon Fork Bacon

Follow that up with Asparagus & Pea Soup from Tartelette, to warm ourselves back up

We’ll keep it green for another moment here and follow up the soup with a Pea Salad with Radish and Feta Cheese from Epicurious

For our main dish, we’ll dig into Mustard Crusted Pork with Farro and Carrot Salad from the folks at Bon Appetit.  Did I mention sweatpants are encouraged for dinner attire?

And finally, we end with Roasted Strawberry Goat Cheese Squares for dessert, from The Kitchn20120529_KitchnStrawberryGoatCheeseSquares-105
