What’s for Dinner?

After a spring break for all (including some fine kitchen leave!), it’s time to peek back into the box and see what the season is delivering. Each week, a little less winter, and a little more spring. This week, fresh chives were added to the mix. I smelled them before I spotted them! And this is how it works…those small but mighty gestures of spring allow us to view those hearty winter greens and roots in a whole new light. A fresh and zesty chive pesto over fish? Oven browned potatoes don’t seem quite so ho-hum now! Delicate, spring-flavored micro greens? Perks up a dinner with roasted roots in a flash! Enjoy this week’s menu; peruse the farmers market if you can, to get a sneak peek of the spring treats headed our way soon.
