Are you enjoying this lovely Spring weather?  We are – we were actually treated to a late afternoon thunderstorm yesterday at the Farm.  It reminded me of living on the east coast…:).

I hope you enjoyed last week’s recipes.  If you tried them and liked them, please place a review on the recipe page.

This week we have two recipes, a main dish and a side dish.  The main dish is Pork Fried Rice with Asparagus and Greens.  You can find Coconut Aminos and Fish Sauce at most natural grocery stores.  Sometimes I also add scrambled eggs. Here is the recipe:

Roasted Radish and Turnips

Did you know you can actually roast radishes?  Roasting them mellows their sharpness and gives them a lovely flavor.  My kids, who don’t normally like radishes, thought this was pretty good!  Adding turnips and summer savory also makes for a really pretty dish.  Enjoy!
