According to the calendar, today is the first day of Spring.
Today, it rained.
And it was cold.
We really need to wait for the Spring Equinox.
Mother Nature knows better than we do with our man made calendars.
My little man thought the rain was fabulous.

The intention has not been for this to become a cooking blog.
But I am discovering so many yummy things in the kitchen at the moment.
And I just have to share them.
