Ahoy it's Sunday!
Spring has officially sprung! We had a couple good days of rain and the grass is getting greener, the tulips have started sprouting and I even spotted some little flowers already in bloom when I was walking to my car after work the other day!
I think we officially rang in the start of warm weather this weekend by making our first visit of the year to the Memorial Union Terrace. As was expected it was crazy busy and we had to wait almost an hour for beer but it was worth it to enjoy some good beer and ice cream with good friends.
The Farmer's Market starts next weekend and I can't wait! I don't make it to the big Saturday market very often but there's a smaller one during the day on Wednesdays that's just a couple blocks away from my work so I will likely be making a weekly visit there. There won't be much produce for a while still but I'm already thinking about the farmer's market stir fry with peanut sauce or broccoli salad for when there is. I actually couldn't wait for the broccoli salad so I whipped up a batch last week for lunches, yum! We've already grilled out a couple times this year but I'm really looking for grilling season to ramp up some more. I'm planning on trying out Brittany's lemon chicken kabobs for a healthy, tasty dinner sometime soon.
What are you looking forward to making this farmer's market and grilling season?
As a former waitress and hostess, I'm always drawn to articles about working in the food service industry. Here's 15 reasons why everyone should work in a restaurant at least once in their lives. I couldn't agree more!
Have a great week!
