Saturday saw the first day of spring, and it was a lovely, sunny day too. But today, Monday feels like winter again, with lots and lots of rain and a distinct chill in the air. Ah well…
Lemons, radishes and other good things of the season
Lemons are everywhere, and I got some more from a colleague’s tree this week. Broccoli is plentiful, and there is an abundance of citrus everywhere. I always think of radishes as being a spring thing, to eat with hard boiled eggs at Easter…though now Easter is in autumn for us. But we can still enjoy radishes.
With the change in the weather, it was time to turn to the sofa and to pick up some reading. I loved Fish Change Direction In Cold Weather by Pierre Szalowski, a great little read of love and hope. Pick it up on a rainy afternoon and you will smile. And then pick up the late, great Anthony Bourdain and his Kitchen Confidential, to bring a different sort of smile.
Thanks to Mani over at A New Life Wandering for the original idea.
