Winter One Day, Spring the Next

You gotta love Colorado’s weather.  We have a saying that if you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes and it will change.  And believe me, this is so true.  Even though we are supposed to be in the throws of winter, you would never know it by today’s weather.  A couple of days ago, it was bitter cold, and the highs were only in the teens and the lows were in the negative numbers.  Today, however, you would think it was a beautiful spring day.  Most of the snow from the other day is already long gone, the sun is shining brightly and the temperature is in the 60’s.  Monday, we are supposed to have snow again.  Go figure!  So with our ever chancing weather, we also have to constantly adjust our menu.  A few days ago, we were eating warm, hearty foods that would “warm the cockles of our heart” as my dad would say, and today we had a salad.  As I said; you gotta love Colorado’s weather.

I made a mixed baby green salad with beets, green onions, tomatoes, hard boiled egg, Cajun chicken and avocado, topped with a tomato vinaigrette and toasted pepita seeds and Mediterranean Babka on the side. Babka with a Mediterranean Twist .
