Could there be a better start to spring this year than receiving the COVID 19 vaccine?
I did just that on spring equinox, and it was a breath of fresh air. At the end of winter, we all need that sense of beginning: flowers poking through the soil, temperatures warming up, trees budding.
Our palates are waking up to brighter flavors. The stews and roasts that sustained us during the colder months take a back seat to fresh herbs and spring vegetables. While it will be a few months yet before we can revel in local asparagus and strawberries, there are some tastes of spring we can enjoy right now.
