What’s for Dinner?

It’s a little confusing, these beginning of spring weeks. The sun, teasingly warm and nearly blinding, gives way without warning to dark skies dumping rain and hail. The produce still reflects this – tender spring herbs and greens, amidst the sturdiest of roots. This week’s dinners reflect this general confusion – that’s my excuse, at least. The comfort foods we’ve come to count on, still in high demand. Not much more comforting than a stay-in Blazer’s pizza night, or a pot pie supper. But there’s a definite nod to the warmth of the season yet to come – shed the jacket, unearth the grill, and celebrate with sangria and a May Day BBQ.
