Traditional Home

I am so excited to greet spring this year.  People who know me will be surprised to hear that.  I’m a winter person and normally long for a cozy fire in the fireplace (even though I live in Southern California where many people maintain it is perpetually warm).  For some reason, maybe the extra rain and cooler temps, this year I look forward to some warmer days.  The key word here is warmer not hot!

In any event, I am ready to pull out the spring accessories (more on this later), put away the items that scream winter and spruce up the garden for its ultimate role as backdrop to a spring BBQ in the back yard, weather permitting.

We have invited friends for a casual supper next weekend and I’ve planned the main course and will work on the rest of the menu this weekend.  I’ll let you know what I decide to prepare in addition to Parmesan-Stuffed Chicken Breasts a recipe from “Everyday Food, Great Food Fast” from the kitchens of Martha Stewart Living.

Do you have any great ideas for bring spring into your home?
