My sweet mom used to remind us, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Growing up in Michigan, we hoped and prayed that was true. By March, we’d had it with shoveling, muddy icicles mucking up wheel wells, freezing grey days and the lack of sunshine. Here in Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, March will mostly come in like a lamb and go out like a soft fluffy chick. Our mild winter (“winter”) has left me longing for cold days made for big pots of chili and fireside chats. Instead, we’ve grilled every weekend, sipped gin and tonics right through February and spent afternoons chatting on the front porch. Not bad at all!
Whatever you’re cooking this month, I hope you’ll gather your favorite people around the table and give thanks for good health and good food. We have so many places to dine right here near home (should you not feel like peeling, slicing or dicing) and hope you’ll share your favorites on our Facebook page.
We like Alon’s for breakfast….lunch and dinner. There are so many gorgeous sweets in the bakery, we can’t stop at one. That’s why we’d head to Burn Boot Camp to make it all worthwhile!
Eat up, work hard, give thanks!
