I used a few fresh sprigs of rosemary and sweet balsamic vinegar in the marinade for the yummy steak I cooked last night.
The smell of rosemary always reminds me of our first baby – our dog Lacey. She loved to chase birds and squirrels and would take off running like lightening if she heard the slightest little cheep or twitter. She was also a great jumper. My Grandma used to say Lacey had a “spring in her butt!” She was constantly running through the rosemary bush at my parent’s house and her fur always smelled like piney rosemary.
Here’s one of my favorite recipes to make when the weather finally starts to get warm – Spring Pasta!
There’s something about the changing of the seasons that always inspires me to cook. In the fall, I want to make chili and any pumpkin flavored recipe I can get my hands on. Wintertime is all about comfort foods: soups and casseroles and warm drinks. In the summer, I want easy, no-cook recipes so I don’t have to turn on the stove or oven when it’s 99 degrees in the house. And in the spring, it’s all about the vegetables, and this veggie packed Spring Pasta.
