March 12, 2012


Just now, looking out on my neighbor’s back lawn, I saw my first robin!!!!Think I’ll cut some forsythia this afternoon.  Daffodils are on their way.  There is nothing quite so invigorating as these first days of spring – especially when it is so early.  

Officially, spring doesn’t begin for another week. Temps have been in the 70s here and some are predicting 80 next week.  I also saw my first woodchuck  yesterday and that I’m not quite so happy about!  Useless, ugly creatures.  And bought my first pansies today.  The rest of the deck garden will have to wait until the end of May.  Our frost date is May 15th.

Tried Jacques Pepin’s Cod in Olive Horseradish Sauce from The Essential Pepin. Fabulous!! Don’t think it took 10 minutes and it really had a great deal of flavor going on.  Always looking for better fish recipes as we need to eat more of it.  Which is difficult as Warner tends to loathe it. Claims most fish has no flavor (a filet of sole????)So I’m always on the hunt for recipes he might tolerate – or perhaps enjoy.
