May 6 weekly menu | spring table

Farm Fresh

asparagus, rainbow chard, chives, mushrooms, green onions, radishes, rhubarb, spicy greens, spinach

What’s for Dinner?

The quintessential spring veggies just keep on coming, and I love it! Tender asparagus, sweet spinach, and tangy rhubarb…so many possibilities. It’s a week full of holidays too. It’s possible that Mother’s Day is a bit more celebrated than National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, but in my book, they’re both worth an extra special effort in the kitchen.
