Spring has Sprung

Easter collageMy friend Beth has a flair for interior decorating. Her seasonal vignettes inspire me. The table always looks beautiful, set with lovely treasures and surprise goody bags for young and old.

My contribution for this year’s Easter gathering was a variation on Kalyn’s Kitchen’s Chinese Napa Cabbage Asian Salad.  I skipped the cilantro and Sriracho sauce; because the sugar snap peas at the grocery looked dead tired, I substituted with finely diced green pepper. And to lighten up the dressing, I used 0% fat plain yogurt in lieu of most of the mayo. I am proud to report that the pink peeps in my treat bag failed to tempt me and that the number of jelly beans consumed barely reached the double digits. Phew!

The Spring Runner Sew-along voting continues until 3:00 p.m. PST Monday (4/25) over on Stumbles and Stitches. I am so appreciative to all of you who have voted. If you haven’t yet logged in on your favorite Spring Table Runner (and of course, I hope it’s mine!), there’s still time. The ballot box is  beneath the banner, near the center of the page. Thank you!
