Well we are finally welcoming spring, with all the rain and high winds! I am grateful for the end of winter, though today was one of the worst days on record for tornadoes, especially in Alabama. 
 We had winds around 60 miles/hour last night, and as usual we wake up to this a big cleanup!
And I am optimistic about a beautiful and thrifty garden again this year, I got my first crops started.  My veggie garden was completely started from seed last year, so I am planning on a bigger one this year.

There is hope!

And now, a few pics of a great recipe I cooked for Easter, but any spring time occasion, like Mothers Day would be a great time to prepare this easy 7 Herb Stuffed Leg of Lamb and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes! Recipe follows.

Hubby broke out the electric knife to carve into slices, to reveal the yummy stuffing.
Dessert was an easy Angelfood mix and sweetened strawberries and whipped cream from a can!  My family loved it!
