    Slowly but surely, spring has shown up in most parts of the US. The warmer days are gracing our lives and the sun is out to greet us up until around 7:30pm here in New England. Remember those awful winter days when the sun would set at 3:15pm!? How did I ever survive? Well, one thing is for certain: we all want to be outside more. No more slaving over the hot stove making stews and casseroles. Spring is more about quick, flavorful meals we can whip up on our way out to a picnic!

      I have not tried the one with the Asian Fusion, I am going to have to get that one. I have always liked making my own. I really like making it out of peanuts and black eyed peas!
