I love this topic!<br /><br />We're nearing Memorial Day and I think Food52 has the right idea...<br /><br />-Anticipating grilling season<br /><br />-Giving spring produce the spotlight it deserves (https://food52.com/recipes/11712-spring-vegetable-jumble-with-lemon-tarragon-butter)<br /><br />-Celebrating the little things (05-14-15 was National Buttermilk Biscuit Day - I cheated a little and went with yogurt: https://food52.com/blog/10148-how-to-make-yogurt-biscuits-without-a-recipe)<br /><br />-Good dirt and fresh flowers<br /><br />-Longer hours of daylight, and an early out from work on a Friday afternoon to enjoy it!<br />

Antonia, I'm deeply glad you're healthy and sorry your family has had to cope with this disease. Your deep knowledge of healthy cooking must be a big plus for yourself and when you cook for family. Wishing you and your family every medical success!
