Spring is here... and even though making it through a Florida winter is no big deal, it' still a milestone. I'm no fan of these darker mornings, but the extra hour of sunlight after dinner is the best. We've enjoyed some beautiful sunsets at the beach this week.
My brother and fiancé were in Florida all week and spent the last few days at our condo. They're both fully vaccinated but we're not quite there yet so, while we couldn't join them at restaurants, we spent plenty of time catching up at the beach and on our lanai. What a treat!
Finished last week//
I started reading this book yesterday morning and didn't want to put it down when it was time for my walk, so I downloaded the audio version, too. At the 30% mark, I can't say I really like any of the main characters, but am looking forward to getting back to the story .
In the kitchen//
The Key Lime Pie I mentioned last week was delicious. The recipe I used (given to me by my mother-in-law many years ago) was unbelievably easy. Not sure why I waited so long to try it. If you'd like to make one, too, this recipe from Taste of Home is practically identical.
On St. Patrick's Day, I made Irish Soda Bread for the first time using a recipe from Natasha's Kitchen. My sister has always been the official baker of Irish soda bread and delivers loaves to family and friends every year. Since we're in Florida now, I had to make it myself. It disappeared within 24 hours!
The week ahead//
One of our Manhattan daughters is arriving tomorrow! She is still working from home and will stay at our condo (we're starting to refer to it as the "holding tank") for a quarantine period before joining us at the house. We're hoping she'll stay around for much of April, too.
How was your week? What have you been reading?
