Happy April!

April is one of my favorite months. Not only is it my birthday month, but it's also kicks off when most of the NC farmers markets officially open! Herbs, asparagus, greens, pea shoots and radishes finally appear and everyone's itching to be outside to enjoy the much anticipated arrival of warmer weather.

Last week I got my first bunch of local asparagus, and I couldn't have been happier. I sauteed it in olive oil and ate the rest in a galette with kale and caramelized onions Friday night. I'm so excited to cook with more Spring vegetables and fruits.

The weather this weekend was amazing in Raleigh after a chilly, rainy week. We walked to dinner on Saturday night, and I enjoyed a long run around the Lake yesterday. How did you enjoy the warmer weather this weekend!?
