A wad of rain and mild temperature washed away almost 95% of the snow we had a few days ago. Surprisingly, the lawn underneath is still green, not the yellow look of death as usual. With plenty of sunshine and the renewed chilly temps watched only from inside of a warm car or house, it feels like spring is here. Let’s skip right to summer, please! Oh well, no time (yet) to get our hopes up because there is still the whole of February before us and this is still Maine, afterall. But Phil, the groundhog, also predicted an early spring.
With that I baked off the last winter squash today, and served it on top of winter salad, radicchio and balsamic vinaigrette and dried cranberries.
