Sunny Day Lemons

After what has seemed like an eternity of endless rain...


A whole day of it, in fact!

And there is just something about sun flooding in through the windows and the smell of lemons that make a day feel simply grand!

Lemons to make...

A strawberry spinach salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Vinaigrette,

which perfectly accompanied BBQ steak and my most favorite food ever - fiddleheads!
(Its good to be a Maritimer!)

In the end, the vinaigrette was a bit too vinger-y, there were far too few fiddleheads for my liking and the muffins weren't as delish as I'd hoped. But it was sunny out! So it really didn't matter.

I was happy.

We were all happy!

A sunny day will do that for a person!

What are fiddle heads? They look interesting, but I don't think I've ever heard of or seen them before.

Fiddleheads are the furled fronds of a young fern. In April and May, they can be picked along the banks of rivers and streams. They're a traditional dish here in Eastern Canada and are just perfect with melted butter, salt and pepper and a splash of vinegar on them!

I thought they looked like ferns. I've never tried eating them though. Do they taste like spinach?

Gina said...

No, although they do have a flavour similar to most greens. But I'd also say the have a unique taste!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
