Today is the first day of Spring! Rejoice! Especially if you had a pretty terrible winter. I didn’t, so I’m not complaining, but the cold weather has dragged on a bit too long for my taste. I’m ready for some warmth.
And, I’m ready to begin reaping the benefits of all of my hard work in the garden. The chives are already coming up, and the strawberry plants looks ready to bloom soon.
I didn’t plant radishes, but I found some at the store that looked just-picked. So I’m celebrating Spring today by eating radishes!
There’s no cooking involved with this task. I eat them the way I was taught – the French way, I understand it’s called. Which makes sense with a French mother…
I eat them simply with unsalted butter and coarse-grained salt. C’est tout! But good butter. And sometimes with bread, if I have good bread. Sometimes with a little Sancerre, depending on my mood, to wash it all down, of course.
I hope to soon be celebrating Spring with lovely asparagus, and too many strawberries! Cheers to Springtime!
