Mother's Day Apron

 I am a little late posting this Mother's Day Apron...where does the time go???
 I purchased a simple apron via the craft store and the buttons, ribbon, and paints were in my stash!
The inspiration came from Pinterest, of course!
Maggie enjoyed the painting process...I painted her feet and hands and then she pressed them onto the apron.  I painted the stems and grass and sewed on the button for detail.
What a fun project it was!!!

Two of our favorite spring things!

 What are the two favorite spring things, you ask...fresh morels and asparagus!
 After washing the morels and soaking them in salt water in the fridge overnight, they were dried and then rolled in flour and fried in a mixture of butter and olive oil.
 The asparagus was just steamed and dotted with a little butter and sprinkled with freshly ground pepper and the finishing touch was a zest of lemon!
Of course there was a little fruit and a slice of pork to round out the perfect spring meal!
