Ahhh, spring is finally here!
Mother nature has really been playing tricks on us and winter has been wearing out her welcome. But it seems like warm weather is just about to make it's debut.
Spring means asparagus season!
I love the warmer weather, eating dinner outside with a cocktail and having sunlight later in the evening. But I really look forward to spring and summer produce.
The farmers markets are about to open for the season and right now there is plenty of good asparagus to make this oven roasted asparagus recipe.
I love asparagus season!
I'm not sure if it's because I love to eat it or that when those bright green stalks start showing up at the grocery store and markets, I know that spring has sprung. And adding some lemon to oven roasted asparagus is the perfect spring dish.
Everything about spring just makes me happy.
And speaking of happy, I have some exciting things going on here. First, I have a blog redesign and I'm just putting some finishing touches on it. What do you think of the new look?
I also have my son's friend Andrew helping me with some photography so I will be redoing some old blog post photos and have some new photos in my ABOUT page soon. He does wonderful action shots too and if you would like to see some of his work, check out his instagram page.
I am also celebrating my ten year blog anniversary at the end of the month. Woohoo!
