It was finally warm enough yesterday to melt all the snow around the house. The persistent patch on the deck eventually gave up by the time I checked on it around mid afternoon.
Hurray! Now I can at least get out of my kitchen and step on the deck without worrying about slipping. And from there, the whole wide world is open to me. By that I mean the backyard. The gateway to my sanity.
As a perpetual gardener, I need to be outside, mingling with the plants, touching them and talking to them. It’s been so long since I last had a visit with them. I miss them!
I hope it’ll continue to keep warming up and then….STOP! right around 75 degrees. Wouldn’t that be sweet? Hey, you can always hope. Miracles do happen!
Have a wonderful weekend, everybody! And Happy Easter!
Favorite recipes from last week’s fiesta:
Simple Dal Recipe from Lathi @ Lathi’s Kitchen
“The simple dal is an all-time comfort food especially for this snowy cold spring. I love how Lathi presented it in such a simple classic way!” — Zeba
“This makes me want to have dal for dinner, tonight! Dal is such a comfort food and how delicious with all the spices and flavors going on here. Sometimes simple is simply the best.” — Petra
Pineapple Beef Tacos from Alex @ Turks Who Eat
“I love the combination of pineapple and meat. Just reading about these tacos is making me crave one, or two or hmm…perhaps even a third if there is room!” — Petra
Creamy Sorrel Soup from Sue @ birgerbird
“Love how beautiful this dish is. A very creative and healthy way to present sorrel with the roasted baby turnips dancing in it…” — Zeba
Buckwheat Carrot Chia Muffins from Monika @ Everyday Healthy Recipes
“Monika is sharing her delicious sounding muffins, chia seeds are so delicious and even better here paired with so much goodness, apple juice, carrots.. you name it. I don’t eat muffins often but I would happily tuck in to one of these any time!” — Petra

Lovely picks for this week!
I’m happy if the temps rise and rise, and stop at about 68-70. They don’t need to go higher. But in any case, I still have snow out there, although it is warm and the snow is creating a blanket of low-lying fog as it melts.
I will be very happy with 68-70 too, Diann! 😀 That sounds pretty the way you described the fog. And eerie, too 😀

Enjoy your garden! We had snippets of spring last week but it’s all disappeared for the long weekend 🙁 typical!
Happy Easter x x x
It’s back to cloudy and wet here, too. The garden will have to wait. But at least no snow and it’ll stay in the 60s. Can’t complain! Happy Easter!
I was so happy about the warmth yesterday! It might finally be Spring 😀 Thank you for the feature!
Me, too! You have great posts this week! I like your borek, too. In the end the pineapple wins 😀
We still have tons of snow! If we get warm enough for a good rain, that would help! Have a wonderful Easter!
I hope at least it’ll be sunny and dry on Easter. If not, indoor egg hunt! Can be as much fun, I think, with an indoor picnic 😀
Yay! That’s a good news, Angie!! Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!!?
Hopefully it’ll stay warm from now on, but I’m doubtful. At least it won’t snow and temperatures won’t go down below freezing, so I’ll take it. It’s about time, it’s almost April!
I’m pleasantly surprised to see my simple Dal got featured in favorite recipes..I feel glad and Thank you Angie..Have a great weekend
It seems everybody likes it. I do, too. I need to serve dals more often!

No problem! Happy Easter! ?
Hi Angie, I just stopped by to tell you my links weren’t set up right to FF!! But I got them fixed! Hope you had a great Easter!
Oh really? I didn’t notice actually, duh ? but I’m glad you got them fixed! ?
Thank you for featuring my muffins Angie! Have you been making changes to your blog? I couldn’t see the linky before though I’ve found your other recent posts! Glad I’ve eventually found the linky too. Hope you had a nice Easter Sunday:)
You might have been on when I was trying to change themes and everything started going haywire. I still need to do a little more cleaning up but I’m glad you found the linky!
The weather is changing but still not warm enough to start gardening.
I knoooww!! I just can’t wait to get out there. My seeds are ready!
I am so ready for some warm weather, still waiting for that one warm week when I can pull up a chair in the garden and feel warm!
I hope you had a lovely Easter nad a nice break! 🙂 x
Me, too! I have so much planned for the garden this year. I hope there’ll be enough time to do it all. I had a nice relaxing, lazy spring break. It was great! ?

Delicious features! Yay, spring is here…kind of anyway.
It was here, and now it’s gone again. It’s chilly out there and windy, brr… They’re saying it might snow this weekend. NO!!!
