Easter time / Spring is all about renewal…
The Birds, the Bees, the Flowers, and the Trees are all ‘waking’ up.
All the critters are ‘twitterpated’. Their songs fill the air, Spring is everywhere.
You will notice decorations of colorful eggs, baby bunnies, ducklings, baskets full of beautiful flowers, etc.
This is a time of rebirth, roots to shoots, flowers to fruits. Eggs bringing forth frogs and birds to serenade us. Baby Mammals being born. Life springs anew, bringing us hope.
Our Easter Feast
In our family our feast reflects all things new.
We rely on all things right outside our backdoor, Strawberries, New Potatoes, Parsley, Thyme and other herbs from our wintered herb tub. We also forage out our backdoor for wild edibles for our spring greens salad: Wintercress, Dandelions, Violet leaves and flowers, Nettles, Mints, etc. We buy regional and seasonal Asparagus (since our beds died out), and our Spring Lamb. I guess the only exception to this rule would be the Coconut? The Lamb is a spiritual and humbling reminder of Jesus’ Grace and Sacrifice for Us.
This is our Bullseye Menu

I did not even get to make my Beatrice Potter tablecloth,
This post is a little behind schedule, but I needed to get it up.
Foraging wild edibles, always puts me in mind of our Old World Folks gleaning farms, fields and by-ways for their Spring Tonic / Winter Purge. -Future Post.
