Soups & Sweet 3.29.12

Last week I was cooking with the the windows wide open & the ceiling fan on.  I was searching for flip flops and bathing suits…yes bathing suits!  My girls ducked under the lake, dumped buckets of water on their heads AND played under the sprinkler.  Yesterday I was searching for matching mittens, hats & warm fleece coats.  I have to admit this weather makes me feel more in my element.  I need some time to acclimate to the the mania brought on my longer days & warm temps.  The brisk days days & chilly nights of spring make this much easier!
