June greetings to everyone linking up kitchens around the world through Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial.
You know it’s spring in New England when you can easily find lobster at the local market. My daughter brought this one down from Maine. It was too cold to eat outdoors but we enjoyed a feast at our kitchen table. We’re waiting for fresh corn on the cob to come into the local markets.
This month in my garden, the lettuce is just about ready to harvest. I have already been picking herbs including cilantro (pictured in front), mint and sage.
This month, I’m participating a fun”Pieathlon” bake-off of retro recipes organized Yinzarella at Dinner is Served 1972. Stay tuned for a post about the pie I contribute plus links to several others.
Work and travel has kept me out of the kitchen too much lately but I did bake a chocolate-zucchini cake for my daughter’s birthday. Decoration was still in progress when I took this photo but I’m heading in the direction of fresh fruit and confectioner’s sugar.
I also bought a few new cocktail glasses and a book for ideas. Now we just need a bit of warm weather to inspire those frozen blender drinks. See you next month!
