April Eat Seasonal Guide

Written by Becky

I don’t know about where you live, but it’s full on Spring here in Utah.  My daffodils and tulips are in full bloom already and we’ve been jacket-less playing at the park on most days.  Everett and I have gone out on multiple occasions to snip fresh flowers around the yard to put in jars around our house. He always takes a big sniff, inhaling the smells of spring.  Oh and our dinner table is all Spring too, peas in our pasta, mushrooms over our salads, and asparagus in just about everything.

Today I hope to give you some great inspiration for Spring, wherever you are.  And check back Monday for more Spring recipe ideas from around the web. Follow #eatseasonal on instagram for even more ideas of what to do with Spring produce!

  1. Spring hasn’t fully settled in here. We’ve still had some bursts of snow and cold weather (and possibly flurries this weekend – yikes!). But the flowers are starting to come out and I’m eating my weight in asparagus! Have a great weekend, friend. I’ve been thinking of you and your family. XOXO!

    • We’ve had a few wintery storms too but I think Spring is finally here! The Spring-time is so hopeful and bright and that’s just what our little family needs right now 🙂 Thanks for your love and care!!!

  2. It’s so green around here, and I’m so excited for my local farmer’s market to start up at the end of this month! Lovely guide, Becky, and I hope you’re all doing well!
