You know that feeling when you can’t even really remember what something feels like….because it’s been so long since you felt it? (Did that even make any sense??) It’s a feeling I had during each of my pregnancies, a feeling I have after a cold that won’t quit, and most definitely a feeling I have at the end of every winter. Like I can’t even begin to remember what the “other” feels like!
It’s funny, right? You’d think I’d be able to stretch my mind into remembering. (Especially during a pregnancy…since I spend most of my life not pregnant.) But for some reason, when I’ve been in something long enough, my brain refuses to remember. Maybe it’s a self-preservation kind of thing….?
Well, whatever it is, this past weekend we got a taste of the other (a taste of spring!) We’re talking 70 and 80 degree weather….and that SUN!!! It didn’t take long to remember exactly what spring feels like. It feels amazing.
I loved having the doors and windows open for the first time, playing with the kids outside, getting the patio furniture out after a long winter in storage. We even seriously contemplated eating outside at a restaurant….which seriously never happens in Wisconsin. The weather was just. that. perfect.
And now….of course….it’s back in the 50’s and we are all missing that beautiful taste of spring. The good news? At least now we can remember what spring feels like. Which is also helpful in remembering what spring tastes like!
If I had to, I would argue that spring tastes like this Asparagus Goat Cheese Flatbread. Fresh, green, earthy, delicious. I love this recipe because it’s quick, easy, and extremely versatile. My favorite way to enjoy it? With a glass of wine on the patio. Enjoying spring (and summer) in all its glory.
