Spring Forward

As our neighbors just to the south and to the east are getting hammered by yet another winter storm, I've been planning a dinner menu for a "Spring Forward" dinner. The power of positive thinking...

If you drive south for an hour you will find yourself in the thick of this winter blast. That's a bit too close for comfort! While they originally predicted we would get up to 12" of snow, the storm decided to move a bit further east (thank you, Mother Nature!).

To celebrate our 'spring forward' time change and our slow creep into Spring, we will be entertaining a few friends this evening with a spring dinner menu:

It may still be cold outside - but Spring will be present during dinner! Sometimes it's good to celebrate the small things in life...

Don't forget to set your clocks forward - unless you live in Arizona.. you'll stay right where you are!

There's no indication of what time I should be there....? Was that an oversight? I also didn't get this lovely dinner invite in the mail, either. Was that also an oversight? It must be the snow.

What lucky friends you have - especially tonight! The menu sounds perfect for an pre-Easter, Spring fanfare! Enjoy the meal and your company!

My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail, too! What a great idea and I am so glad that storm is missing you. The menu sounds delicious and I know everyone will enjoy. Will be sending you warm air Fed X from California!

mmmm, sounds wonderful! I love potato-leek soup and it a great excuse to use the immersion blender. Enjoy and save us some leftovers!
