Pasta, Pierogies, and Pussywillows

Mid MarchEnd of March

Crocuses are just now starting to open their flowers. I'm starting to wonder how so many European countries equate daffodils with February.

We had a few leftover scraps of bread so we tore it up and put the bits out with the peanuts for the bluejays and I was shocked to find after they cleaned out the basket, there were two little sunflower seeds!

We've considered that it may have been a thanks/trade for the bread which was new, or perhaps a request for next time, or maybe they just dropped these because they wanted to pick up something else. That said they were the only things left in the basket for a good long while.

I've been making pasta with fresh eggs from a neighbour. Because of the bright orange yolks, my pasta is yellow. The recipe I use converts 6 eggs to 3 bags of dry pasta, so one egg per serving.

I made up some pierogies for the freezer because the grocery store never has any I can eat. They're not difficult, they just take a long time.

Pussy willows are starting to pop, so between that and the crocuses, I'm thinking spring is properly here. The sunrise was certainly beautiful this morning.
