Springtime in Northern California

Now that I have been here a while I am no longer dizzy. The first few days here I was rock­ing and rolling with the change in envi­ron­ment.  I arrived in North­ern Cal­i­for­nia dizzy with the beauty of spring­time here. These hills with the soft greens of a wet spring do some­thing to me. I start to walk really slow, see mice and jack rab­bits, notices leaves unfurl­ing. A few weeks of being here has felt like long drinks of cold water…so thanks for that!

And eat­ing is sim­ple and sweet here. As one of my friends in Mex­ico says, “peo­ple in Cal­i­for­nia eat a lot of leaves,” and I am hap­pily munch­ing away on leaves and rice. :)

So yes­ter­day in between a walk in the vine­yard and some work I made a salad that tick­led me. Here is what went in it. Feel free to adapt it to your refrig­er­a­tor! And I know a few weeks ago I had promised to write more and I am ready now.…

Spring Salad:

Mixed baby greens


Feta crum­bled

Basil chopped fine

Red onion sliced thin

Avo­cado sliced

Mix in a bowl and serve with some good olive oil and bal­samic vine­gar. Maybe eat with some­one who makes you laugh.
