Now that the snow is almost, gone it’s usually the time I get super excited about fresh foods to come. With all of the local food venders at our finger tips I hardy step foot into a grocery store and just get the “essentials” like milk, butter, bread. I also get excited and think of what goodies we will be planting in our garden. Last year we added a few new veggies to switch things up. I however like the staples of having the basic and get the really good stuff at the market. Here are a few photos I took last year on my stroll looking for goodies.
There are lots of great meals I enjoy for spring, we tend to eat a lot lighter and less heavy when it comes to spring. The salmon & cranberries dish is a great. Even the kids enjoy this meal. Feel free to share with me what your go to spring dish is that you enjoy as a family. Also what’s a dish you think of that uses fresh local foods. I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know how it turned out and if you’ve made it. Let me know if you changed anything to make it your own staple! Enjoy!!
