The beginning of March is always when I think spring should be here but, in reality, no matter what the Groundhog said we still have a way to go. But every year during the week of St. Patrick’s Day things really DO seem to start to turn the corner and I’ve noticed several promising signs this week. The predicted snowstorms were revised to a snow/rain mix. The significant snowbanks we have in my neighborhood have melted just a smidge so that turning at a 4-way intersection feels less like an act of faith and more like an informed decision. The warble of the birds is getting louder and more voices are joining the choir. And the sun is so high in the sky that you can feel it warming your cheeks on a sunny day. Hooray!
And because it does feel like we’re turning a corner this week, we’re going to acknowledge: “In Like a Lion and Out Like A Lamb.” Since we only have one lamb lover in our house we’re really going to enjoy a middle-eastern feast:
- Lamb Burgers
- Falafel Balls
- Pita Bread w/ Hummus
- Cucumber and Tomato Slices
