Welcome friends! I want to introduce you to my sweet friends Holly & Natalie of The Modern Proper who are guest posting here on Sweet Anna’s today! Holly has been a friend of mine for years, and I am impressed over and over again by all the delicious recipes she & Natalie come up with, and the beautiful photography they share. You will absolutely fall in love with them after just a few minutes of browsing around on their beautiful blog! Go say Hi! (And then come right back and get ready for this amazing spring-inspired recipe below!) If you didn’t have spring fever before you got here, you will now!
Hi there, Holly here from The Modern Proper. So happy to be guest posting today here at Sweet Anna’s. Annalise is one of my first (and favorite) foodie friends! She has taught me a lot about blogging and our time spent together is always fun and filled with talk about new recipes. I am excited to share this special sandwich we created just for her blog and all her faithful readers (that’s you!) Ok, here we go…
Last week, my kids and I went on a walk around our neighborhood just to breath in the fresh air. I realized that since getting a gym membership a few months ago I’ve been missing our usual afternoon strolls. Much to my surprise we saw our fair share of budding flowers on trees and daffodils popping their bright yellow heads out of the wet soil. My delight in these discoveries made me realize just how ready I am to embrace spring and say goodbye to winter. The older I get the sooner that desire seems to creep up each year.
Natalie and I are definitely ready for the sun’s return, for our gardens to be in bloom and to be able to once again release our kids to turn our backyards into their own adventure wonderlands. The greening of our browned grass and budding of the many forgotten perennials not only makes me look forward to the warmer times ahead, but to the change it will surely bring for what’s on our plates. When I think of a spring menu ham and sweet green peas always comes to mind. Such a delightfully fresh combination, don’t you think?
