Even though nearly nothing is in bloom here in the Catskills, I still love when one season ends and another begins. But what is there to love about a transitional season that still has a great chance of snow and sleet, muddy kitty cat feet trampling into the house, and allergies galore?
Well, springtime ushers in opening day for NY Yankees baseball!
I’m not a huge sports fan, but I am a huge NY Yankees fan. Yet not really a fan of all baseball teams, just the NY Yankees. And no, it’s not just because they win a lot, but because it’s family tradition, win or lose. A part of childhood summers that still bring a smile to my face decades later. Remember: I grew up in the 80s when they weren’t winning very much, lol. Biased New Yorker? Yes, yes indeed.
But springtime isn’t all balls and butt pats. It’s also when asparagus is in season!
One of my favorite green veggies! <3
Ooooh, look what else I found in that asparagus post: Dark Chocolate Chambord Cupcakes!!!
Oh. my. gawd. Those were amazzzzzzzzzzzzing!
It’s also fresh strawberry season… drooooooooooooooool….
Greek yogurt with fresh strawberries and slivered almonds. Maybe a drizzle of honey or agave? Mmm!
Shrimp, avocado, and strawberry salad. Phenomenal combo. MUST try!
I’m also looking forward to perfect walking weather, longer days, opening the windows in the house and the car, and adorable little fawns in our backyard.
And of course, I’m definitely looking forward to chocolates the Easter Bunny brings!!
