First Day of Spring!

Last night we celebrated the Vernal Equinox with a feast! After the long, brutal winter we have endured, we were extra excited to welcome the first day of Spring.

We decorated the house with fresh flowers and enjoyed some light, spring-y food together. Here is a little glimpse at our celebration:

Spring Equinox Menu

Spring Salad
Herb Bread

Lemon Asparagus Pasta
Roasted Carrots

Lemon-Coconut Cake

Spring Salad: baby lettuces, pea shoots, green
onion, herbs and sunflower seeds

Lemon Asparagus Pasta with
fresh herbs and pine nuts

Dessert time! Lemon-coconut cake, decorated with fresh flowers.
The vintage bunny planter on the tray belonged to my Grandmother.
It holds fond memories for me, and always makes me smile.

In the next day or two, I'll be sharing a post about our Maple Sugaring Adventure. We finally got to do our first boil today, and ended up with more syrup than expected! It was a very exciting, if very long, day. I have many pictures to sift through, but will get that post up as soon as possible. 

 Happy Spring!
