Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

First Taste of Spring



V. Good Monday Morning...
Spring is in the air and this week and J. and I are going to talk about food...and what a wonderful way to start with the welcoming in of fresh local asparagus that is being picked from the growers fields and arriving at your local markets.
This is best season for asparagus, with it's bright green stalks and tightly closed compact tips they are our first official taste of spring.
So simple and elegant, so easy to prepare.
Full of folic acid, vitamin C, potassium, and beta carotene, a true heart healthy food.

The Grocery Goddess has announced their arrival and I'm off to fill my market basket in preparation for an asparagus soup for tonights dinner.

  2. Just spoke with my green-grocer and she tells me we are still a wee bit away from the asparagus coming in. But she did say, they and fiddleheads will be here soon.
    So...now...what to do with the fiddleheads? Hmmmmmm
