Is is actually Spring?  I think the calendar may be wrong because it is cold and wet and dreary and, well, you get the picture.  Where’s the sunshine?  There is so much that we want to do outside, but it is just too cool and damp to do any of it yet.  I guess that means more time to cook more comfort food even though our diet won’t like it too well.

This is an odd and short menu week for me.  I have a couple of new weeknight dinner ideas to try, Easter is next Sunday, and we have a couple of nights/days out planned.  This Tuesday is my homemakers/cooking club meeting and I will actually be one of the presenters this time. *Gulp*  I will be making a couple of dairy free ice creams and talking a little about lactose intolerance. Wish me luck…I will probably need it.

Next Saturday, C & I are going to the first Kentucky Green Living Fair in Somerset which is being organized by Sustainable Kentucky.  I am really excited about it and can’t wait to see the booths and a couple of the seminars planned.  After that, I hope we get to drive up to Stanford to the Bluebird Café and then to Lancaster to Marksbury Farms.  It will be a very full day, but we don’t go that direction very often so I want to try to squeeze as much in as possible.

Sunday is Easter, of course, which means celebrating our risen Lord Jesus Christ at church that morning and then eating with both sides of the family at lunch and dinner so I will have multiple dishes to make for that.  Happy Easter to everyone!
