Welcome back from Spring Break everyone!
This past week at school we had “Spring Tastings” where lunch featured many fun foods found mostly in spring. Our veggie platter had the following
- Asparagus spears
- Baby Rainbow Carrots
- Icicle Radishes
- Green Garlic Aioli
We were delighted with the enthusiasm at ALL of the schools over the pea shoots. They are baby pea plants that are eaten whole and they taste just like fresh peas. Our organic strawberries were from Alba Organics (a neat farming education cooperative in the Salinas Valley) and they were wonderfully sweet. Everyone was excited to see strawberries again. We can expect to have them more often for dessert at school 🙂
Enjoy the warm spring weather!
