Unlike the rest of the world, who at the start of the year, resolve to eat healthier, exercise or sleep more, and work less, and then some... I hold out until Spring.
The first day of Spring, that is.
It only makes sense. You can actually feel... and see the changes. And it's that time of year when I feel most moved. And happy. The moment when you open the sliding glass door and the newly warmed air surrounds you and then lures you out to soak in the sunshine. And what could be more warming to the heart, then seeing bright pink and white buds sprouting from tree branches, and momma birds gathering food for their newly hatched babies.
Spring is when all the magic happens, and along with the magic comes even more motivation for growth.
So what are your Spring Resolutions? This year, mine have more to do with turning back the clock, and revisiting some of the passions of my youth. Like my love of movies, and how, when I was in college, I'd go to afternoon movies once a week- even if it was just me in the theater. Or how much I enjoy fashion and makeup... especially tearing out an expensive look from a magazine, and finding that look for less at the mall. Or playing the piano, and my attempt at singing (which is a poor one, at that). Two of my all time favorite passions that I haven't made a part of my life in far too long (and no, I won't be auditioning for any musicals, any time soon).
And what's your favorite Spring dish? Mine's quiche (and I must be up to at least 3,130 by now!) And today I've asked some of the best of the best food bloggers to share their favorite quiche recipes in honor of Spring, new beginnings and Spring Resolutions.
These ladies are amazing, and so are their quiches. Just look at them. Each unique and stunning in their own right. Traditional, crustless, mini, a paleo version, and even one called a pie, because Cathy at Noble Pig says, "It seems more manly that way," (love it!) All using delicious, fresh ingredients to help make the start of the new season even more special.
