she might: Easter week decisions

I can’t get a few things out of my head lately.

This meal:

It’s time to make a new memory with this lovely pot. It is one of those magical meals that packs in earthy goodness and matches the April sky and season. It’s still a little chilly so the warmth of this comforting bowl is still so very welcome. The flaky salty ham that falls apart with a side of mustard is a delicious combo. And the fresh green vegetables, where some of them crunch and some melt, make this so simple but very encouraging as I’ve said before. (And encouragement is what I need for as I write the snow is actually falling, again.) Done. I convinced myself. I’m making it. English hot-pot recipe here.

These desserts:

Strawberry rhubarb almond crumble anyone?

This empty garden:

Every year for the last 4 years or so, the kids and I keep extending our garden plot. But with a tiny yard as it is, I’ve been thinking maybe this year we would end the garden expansion going forward with a nice raised bed to give it some height and finish off the space.

I did not grow up gardening. But it’s been one of the best memories I’ve had with my kids, figuring it out together and learning as we go. Watching my kids confidently dig into the dirt has always inspired me.

What’s on your might list for Easter and spring? I’d love to hear.
