Spring Bucket List

Spring Bucket List

Apr 5, 2016 by Christine

You know all those spring-time things you’ve always wanted to do? Let’s go do them! This is the year you fly that kite that’s collecting dust in the closet. And have a legit picnic under the blossoms with something other than cheese and crackers. You’ll be able to spend more time outside because you’ll know exactly what you’re eating after a long day—it’ll be no fuss, ready in under 30 minutes, and bursting with spring veggies.

Add any of these to your current plan or create a new plan with favorites!

A ready-in-15-minutes dinner of Roasted Salmon w/ Fava Bean, Asparagus & Snap Pea Salad w/ Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette to enjoy after a long day at work—windows open, music playing, a glass of rosé.

More quick, spring dinners:
Egg Salad Tartines w/ Fennel & Radishes
Curried Chicken Wrap w/ Cucumbers, Garlic Scape Chutney & Greens

A Strawberry Poppy Seed Layer Cake you’ll make again and again for all spring celebrations.
