Hello Friends! I am loving that spring has sprung! This week, we enjoyed a couple of meals al fresco and even made it down to the beach. I love visiting the beach this time of year because the summer crowds have not yet arrived, so it is a little quieter and calmer.
I could just spend hours watching the waves and the sailboats go by. I look forward to many more picnics at the beach in the coming weeks. Now on to one of my favorite tasty recipes.
