Green everywhere

Are things greening up at our house too?
The green grass has brought the deer closer to the house. We had not seen them too much this winter.

Springtime also means asparagus.
Although these are not local asparagus, we enjoy eating them whenever we can since the season is so short.
Here is a wonderful recipe for
Roasted asparagus soup

Coarsely chop one bunch asparagus, one onion and 1 cup celery.

Toss with one tablespoon of olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast uncovered in a 450 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Do stir the veggies at least once.

Transfer the vegetables to a medium pot along with 1 tablespoon of flour.

Add 1 carton of chicken broth and stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Cool your soup and then use a stick blender, a blender or food processor to purée until smooth.
And voilà! a very green spring soup!

On the weekend I dyed this green yarn for myself.
I want to knit the Vitamin D after seeing it on a member of the knitters guild and at the LYS.
But then again, the Vodka lemonade looks real nice too.
But either way, this bunch is mine!

And last, but not least, I made a soap with a green top! This soap's fragrance is called Mountain Rain and smells so fresh!
 Can't wait to see what colour will show up next week!


  1. Love all your green. The deer look so happy.

    Enjoy you day.

  2. oh, you've been so busy at your creations! Very inspirational. You are making me hungry for asparagus.
