Happy Spring !!

Spring has really sprung early this year.. and in honor of this I am getting my Easy Easter Dinner tips ready to share with you on Fox 19 , April 2, 2012 at 8:15 and Fox 46 on April 3 at 8:45 a.m.
I will also be out and about April 7 from 1-4 pm at PICTURE THIS, 26 Broadway in Lebanon, OH for a fundraiser for Bridge Riding for the Disabled. This great organization assists many youngsters and adults work toward more independent lives through horseback riding.
We will be giving away $500. in CINCINNATI AND SOUP prints for each $50 + donation.
This is to help raise $1000.00 for BRD in ONE afternoon. We will also sample Ruth Lyons commercial candy, have a raffle , book signing and meet a volunteer from BRD who can give you more details.
And a tip for now is that you should check your garden- the asparagus is coming up- way early this year !
(My friend Catherine even had enough to eat this past week !) If you are looking at the supermarket you will also find fresh asparagus "in season". Watch to feel how "woody" or large they are. This is one veggie where slender is usually more tender. White Asparagus is also in the stores now . They will always be larger and thicker- a trait of the white asparagus. Be sure to chop off the woody ends before serving. Photo: Butterfly at Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus
