When I first looked through this issue, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to come up with 6 things to try. The in season recipes were for radishes. It's not that I have anything against radishes per se, I just don't think that tea sandwiches are something that I'm planning to make here on the mountain anytime soon.
When I went through the second time, however, I had 7 things that sounded good, and one of those was the Spring Brunch menu. There's a whole article of strawberry desserts, but it's early here for strawberries; even in a year where the growing season isn't so late in showing its face. As a result, I didn't pick any strawberry things to make. We'll wait until the berries are here and good. Then we'll talk about strawberry desserts.
Here's what I think sounds good this month:
- Breakfast Taco
- Coffee Cake Muffins
- Thai-Style Steak Salad
- Chicken Stuffed with Cheese, Tomato and Basil
- Pasta Salad with Broccoli and Peanuts
- Ginger-Grapefruit Spritzer
- Spring Brunch Menu: Canadian Bacon Strata, Oven Roasted Home Fries, Tomatoes in Basil Vinaigrette, and Pecan-Shortbread Bars
