What Sweet & Tangy Finds Today!
It's the first radish of the season ~This calls for a recipe:
Spring Radish Tea Sandwiches
Thinly sliced radishes
16 slices best-quality white bread*
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
* Choose the best-quality white or wheat bread as possible. Never serve end slices. Freezing the bread before cutting and then spreading makes for easier handling.
Spread one side of each piece of bread lightly with butter.
Top the buttered side of the eight (8) slices of bread with the sliced radishes and top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side down.
Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again.
Yields 8 whole sandwiches or 16 halves or 32 fourths.
Our resident robin is checking it out ~ hope it knows how pinchy that veggie is!
Our neighbor's kitty is taking time to smell the roses....err,make that azaleas ;o)
First we find momma and baby titmouse in the yard........
Then we see the first bearded iris in bloom.....
Baby titmouse decides to investigate on its own....all in all, a wonderful day filled with all of God's gifts!
