{3 Things}

Spring is here!
Have I mentioned that once or twice?

I'm slightly zapped after a long school day,
so here are 3 lovely things
I'm currently enjoying due to this beautiful season.

{Minhaus Craft Brewery}
I found this at our local grocer today. As you know, I've been looking for a replacement to my beloved Old Style Light & this Minhaus Light is a contender {$11 for 24!}.

{Portobellos via Better Homes & Gardens}
That same lovely grocer has been selling these GIANT portobello mushrooms like mad this past week. I've bought more than a few. They are de-lish! Seared in a pan with some butter & voila, you've got dinner.

{Violets via Canal Photos}
I've been noticing these little violets popping out of the ground all around campus. Whenever I see them struggling through the earth they make me smile.

Happy Spring!

I've been buying mushrooms a lot lately too...they are so yummy! I've been getting the baby bellas and cooking them in a little olive oil and butter to eat with everything...they were especially good thrown in with some whole wheat fettucinne, garlic, and red pepper flakes.

And I just love violets...so pretty!

Yum to the 'shrooms and cheap "craft" beer! And such pretty little violets, aw. I have seen hundreds of these teeny-tiny light pink wildflowers growing in amongst my grass, and I have no idea what they are, but they are so pretty!
