By the time we meet next week, we’ll be celebrating spring eve. Weather winter is having it’s last hurrah where you live, or if it’s prematurely hot like summer, Pasta with Red Beans and Broccoli is a perfect transitional dinner dish. It’s hearty but not wintery, getting its surprising character from miso — a sturdy, everyday dish fusing Italian and Asian flavors.
Avocado and Orange Salad is a perfect salad to take us from winter to spring. It’s a vitamin-packed bowlful featuring oranges, avocado, and watercress. It goes with just about anything else you’re serving — like the pasta dish above — and can be made in minutes.
Leave a little room for Cacao Crispies — a super-simple snack that will please kids of all ages! These chocolatey crispy rice cereal balls make a perfect snack for evening or after school.
