It’s all about Spring Dishes and More at this week’s Hearth and Soul Link Party. Welcome!!
I’m loving the fresh start that spring brings, even when the weather isn’t up to much! What’s it like in your corner of the world? We’ve had some sunshine but mostly rain and it’s still not very warm. Temperatures are trying to creep up though, and I’m praying for sunny warm weather in the West Country this weekend. One of my best friend’s sons is getting married to a lovely young lady and we are looking forward to celebrating with them!
Last week on the blog I re-opened the discussion on what Being a Housewife in the 21st Century can mean.
It’s definitely not what some people think! Please do pop by and join the conversation on this fairly controversial (for me anyway!) blog post.
To help warm you up on cooler spring days, I shared a traditional British recipe with a history that dates back to the Raj.
My Best Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup is a warmly spiced, comforting soup. It’s easy to make ahead and is great to have on hand for quick, healthy lunches.
My Carrot Walnut Bran Muffins are deliciously moist with crunchy nuts and a hint of spice – a bit like a healthier carrot cake!
Spring Dishes and More Features
Thank you to everyone who visited and shared at the Hearth and Soul Link Party last week. It’s exciting to see the party growing!
This week’s Spring Dishes and More features include (from top left, clockwise):
Create Your Color Story and Inspiration Wall from Your Home Your Happy Place – This sounds like such fun!
Enjoy Hot-Smoked Salmon and Prawn Terrine, a fresh and light spring appetizer or snack from Once Upon a Food Blog
I’ve never eaten Boysenberries but I sure would like to visit The Boysenberry Festival at Knott’s Berry Farm like Jennifer of Smart Fun DIY did!
Wreaths for anything other than Christmas are still taking a while to catch on here in the UK, but with inspiration like these 25+ Beautiful DIY Spring Wreaths from Our Crafty Mom, there’s a chance I might be able to encourage my neighbours to turn over a new leaf!
Matcha is a revitalising and energising part of my heathy eating plan, so I can’t wait to try this Matcha Green Tea Frozen Yogurt from Pam of Sidewalk Shoes!
