Initially I thought about making a pasta dish using spring veggies.. But.. It's been getting hot here. So I decided to go with a refreshingly cold beverage.. No booze involved..

Here's something rather odd. The challenge is Spring food and the first thing that popped into
my head was lamb. I'm not a fan of lamb, it always tastes like wet hay to me. Then eggs came to mind. Spring, fertility, etc. I wasn't pleased with where my mind was heading. So I bought a donut pan. I've wanted to bake doughnuts for about a year. For Easter last year I got two new cookbooks for myself. I haven't used either until now. The Year of Cozy is a book of homemade everything, recipes, crafts and adventures. She made a pet teepee and her dog looks so happy in it. There's a recipe for baked Coconut-Lemon Doughnuts.
The book is by Adrianna Adarme who's blog is a favorite of mine. acozykitchen.com Give it a look-see!
I guess the fresh lemon makes me think of Spring...or I just want doughnuts.

Baked Coconut-Lemon Doughnuts
Yay! Spring is here, and what's better to eat than Grilled Chicken and Fresh Fruit?! When we moved into our new home back in Jacksonville, FL, we received a grill from Matt's grandparents as a house warming gift. We still have that grill today eight years later. I remember Matt grilling up chicken and I made a fruit salad. The whole family sat on the back porch floor because we didn't have patio furniture yet. We feasted that afternoon, and it was incredible. I will never forget the joy of being a new homeowner and grill owner. It seemed like the possibilities were endless. What a simple, pleasant memory!
With the 60 and 70 degree weather here this week (we are going to forget the horrible storms earlier in the week) I sit here on the edge of my beautiful forest watching almost peach colored clouds drift along a perfectly blue sky to the tune of the birds chirping in the trees. The puppy who will never be outdone by the scenery, decides to run, roll and play in every leaf pile he can find. Someone up the street decides to grill and it makes me hungry, so today for my spring meal, its grill everything I can. With a little help from the puppy and the husband.....
I really didn't season the food or get especially creative, I literally threw everything on the grill. So I guess I should be sorry for no actual food recipe but when you combine good food, family and the thoughts of friendships began by a love of cooking, that is the perfect spring recipe for a wonderful promise of fun to come.
Ahhh... Springtime.. The weather is warming.. In most places flowers are blooming..Some of us are cranking up the grill.. But I think for all of us.. Our foods take on the flavors of a new season.
