We’ve had a crazy night, weather-wise.
It was beautiful all day long – sunny, in the 60s-70s, and just a slight breeze in the air.
We planned on running after work, but by the time Nick got home, it was pouring.
I went ahead and started on dinner, and while it was cooking, it started hailing! We haven’t had hail here in years. And as quick as it started, the hail stopped.
And…of course…as soon as dinner was ready, the rain stopped, too.
We went ahead and ate anyways.
I planned the perfect Spring time meal!
Since our Easter didn’t include a normal Easter feast, I combined most of my favorite Spring foods into dinner tonight.
I made a whole wheat pasta with diced ham, asparagus, and peas with a light sauce made from whole wheat flour, milk, broth, and onion.
But the secret ingredients? Just a touch of fresh parsley and lemon zest, right before serving. It was so bright tasting! And I loved the mix of asparagus and peas together.
Since we had green veggies in the pasta already, I really wasn’t sure what to have alongside it, but then I remembered our strawberries! A simple salad of spinach, red onion, strawberries, and a vinaigrette was the perfect touch.
After we finished eating, we took Maggie on a walk around the neighborhood. We just got back at 8, and it’s raining again! We could see lightening the entire way home and we got back inside the house just as it was starting to rain again.
Let’s hope this rain makes our tulips bloom faster! I saw one bud today and can’t wait :)
I’ve got a LOT of work to do tonight – all fun stuff, but still busy!
