Day Two: Steamed Frozen Broccoli

Oh dear. It's only Day Two and already I'm resorting to an old standby, a bag of frozen broccoli (or green beans or ...) steamed, then sprinkled with good salt.

My excuse is that there was no ignoring spring's call today and I spent the afternoon hauling and spreading mulch for the garden, where every day, some times it seems every hour, new tendrils poke through with confidence. The laughing daffodils, the bright forsythia, the flowering trees bursting into blossom: if ever there were a good day to spend time in the garden, not the kitchen, this was it.
