Welcome again to Friday's Feast1. Today I'll be talking about March as a possible turning point in your menu selections.
Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:
- Beverly @ Beverly's Back Porch
March is also International Peanut month. Here's a Hot recipe with peanuts in it.
- Irish @ Irish Gumbo
Here's a great snack idea that not only uses Irish beer, but is recommended by Irish himself.
You know the old saying: "March— In like a Lion and Out like a Lamb". Typically this refers to the weather. At the beginning of March you probably have snow and bitter cold weather— and by the time the month concludes it looks more and more like spring. I also think that the dishes we prepare follow a similar pattern.
When March begins, we are still cooking dishes that help keep us warm. These bold lion-like dishes are powerful and keep us going when we feel cold and run down.
By the time you have reached the end of the month, you are now thinking spring and your dishes seem to reflect this. They may not be timid like a lamb, but they are lighter and cooler.
What are your thoughts? Do you notice that there is a certain point when your dishes change?
Next month is April. Even though I will be away next week, this gives you two weeks to share something April-like. Here are some ways of interpreting this month's theme:
- April is in my [Blank]. What foods remind you of this month.
- This year April also has Easter, do you have any Easter dishes or traditions you want to share.
