Spring!!! Without being too optimistic(because the 5 day forecast does still include some MORE snow!) I feel like it may be, possibly, perchance, tentatively, almost: spring. You don’t even know how much of a relief this is to me. I think it’s been a few months of me saying, that’s ok, we know spring ALWAYS comes!!! Then it turned it, it’s ok, spring always comes. Then it was, ok spring DOES come right? To finally, ok, spring will never come. I know it’s been a hard winter for many many people. And sunny Calgary has not been sunny at all. But the sun is out today and trying hard to melt the mountains of snow everywhere. Sexy Husband and I took the girls out for some much needed Vitamin D synthesis and after our walk we hovered outside on the driveway, well past the girls’ patience, soaking in as much as we could!
Here’s a happy little spring recipe I whipped up for an afternoon snack. This took me, literally, 2 minutes to make. You could substitute lots of different things in this recipe, so use what you have!
1 cup frozen blanched peas
1/2 cup dried and crunchy soybeans
1/2 cup crumbled feta
juice of 1/2 a lemon
Directions: Microwave peas for 90 seconds or so, until not frozen anymore, with a tbs of water, or run them under hot water until room temperature. Place all ingredients in a food processor and whirl around for 10 seconds. Serve with crackers or pita or bread!
